In an ASX Announcement this week Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) reported that the organisation has made solid progress in developing and implementing a range of initiatives to stabilize earnings and return to growth. Having announced targeted savings of $100 million in August, the company has now finalized plans to restructure.
CCA Group Managing Director, Alison Watkins said, “The restructure will lead to the reduction up to 260 non-frontline positions, with the majority taking effect in 2015. This latest restructure, together with cost initiatives already in train, gives us a high level of confidence we will achieve our savings targets.”
Ms Watkins reported solid progress made in the development and implementation of a range of growth initiatives to strengthen the brand portfolio. “The recent launch of the 250ml cans, supported by the #colouryoursummer campaign, is tracking above expectations in terms of ranging, transactions and most importantly, recruitment of the next generation of Coca-Cola consumers. We have a great line up of new product launches and marketing initiatives including the launch of Coke Life in the first half of 2015,” she said.
