The Atlanta beverage giant said Thursday that third-quarter net income increased to $1.46 billion, or 62 cents a share, compared with $1.28 billion, or 54 cents a share, in the year-earlier period, when per-share results were dragged down three cents by an asset write-down and tax change.
Revenue climbed 6.9% to $6.45 billion from $6.04 billion.
Coke repurchased $1.2 billion of its stock year-to-date and currently intends to repurchase a total of $2.0 billion to $2.5 billion of its stock for the full year.
Enviga, a new green-tea beverage that Coke says burns calories, will be rolled out in the New York-Philadelphia region Nov. 6, with a national launch in February.
