NEW YORK |
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Coca-Cola Co (KO.N) reported a higher quarterly profit on Tuesday, helped by volume increases in its North American and international businesses.
The world's largest soft drink maker's third-quarter net income was $2.06 billion, or 88 cents per share, up from $1.90 billion, or 81 cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue rose 5 percent to $8.43 billion as worldwide volume rose 5 percent.
Volume in North America rose 2 percent in the third quarter. That follows a 2 percent increase in the second quarter, which was its first increase in over two years.
