At times, there is a need to look externally and leverage M&A to drive our total beverage portfolio. However, M&A it not a strategy in of itself but rather an enabler of our strategy. While the focus of M&A opportunities continuously evolve, what’s consistent is we remain disciplined with our allocation of capital and on the mission of M&A as an enabler of disciplined growth.About Consumer-centric M&A
Over the past several years, we have undergone a tremendous transformation in refranchising the majority of our company-owned bottling operations. Through the refranchising process, we have strengthened the system with great partners who are committed to excellence in the market that they serve. These partners are strategically aligned to execute and support the vision and are creating sustainable long-term value for the system.
For a company to deliver strong shareowner returns, it must also deliver for a broad spectrum of stakeholders. The most successful companies satisfy consumers, customers, employees and communities. If they do that, shareowners are rewarded. This is the only way to succeed in business today. Therefore, we are committed to winning with all of our stakeholders for a better shared furture.
The digital evolution is changing consumer’s behaviors, their interactions through social media, influencing the way they think, and ultimately how they shop. This evolution impacts every aspect of our system, creating the opportunity to partner in different ways with our customers and re-engineer our own supply chain and route-to-market.
