Kerry Group achieves good growth

Date: Tuesday 24 Feb 2009

LONDON (ShareCast) - Ingredients & flavours firm Kerry Group said it achieved good organic revenue and margin growth for the year despite tough cost pressures.

The group also said it is confident of delivering earnings growth in 2009 to a range of 160 to 165 cent per share.

Pre-tax profits rose to €316.6m from €240.3m last time on sales that increased 6.3% on a like-for-like basis to €4.8bn, helped by currency translation, acquisitions and business disposals. Raw material and energy related input costs rose 7%.

“Kerry is well positioned from a technology and consumer understanding standpoint to lead industry product development needs in this time of change. In addition the Group is well resourced financially to benefit from the business expansion opportunities which will inevitably emerge,” said the group.

This will bring the total dividend for the year to 22.5 cent per share, an increase of 12.5%.
