Corporate Impacts

  • ΟΤΕ:The net income for Q2’13 stood at €57.2mn from €94.6mn million in the same period last year, as it continues to suffer from tough regulation, sharp competition and severe austerity in its two main markets, Greece and Romania. The sales dropped at an annual pace of 8.6% to €1.003bn, weighed by lower call prices imposed by regulators.
  • COCA COLA:The company announced net profits of €111mn (+3%) for H1’13, while the net sales amounted to €3.38bn (-1%). Volume declined by 2% in Q2’13. A 2% volume increase in emerging markets was more than offset by a 6% volume decline in established markets and a 3% decline in developing markets. The Board of Coca-Cola has decided on new progressive dividend policy effective from 2014 onwards. The company’s targeted payout ratio on comparable net profit will be in the range of 35-45% over time.
