Wintergreen Advisers Poses Twelve Urgent Questions for Coca-Cola

October 20, 2014

New York, NY – (Business Wire) - As The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) prepares to announce its third-quarter 2014 financial results on October 21, Wintergreen Advisers today released a list of twelve questions for the company to address during its conference call with investors.

Wintergreen urges Coca-Cola to provide detailed information in three critical areas – restructuring its bottling operations, streamlining expenses, and improving accountability.

David J. Winters, CEO of Wintergreen Advisers, said: “Coca-Cola is not making sufficient progress on cutting costs, a major initiative – restructuring its vast bottling network – is cloaked in secrecy, and those responsible for the company’s 2014 equity compensation plan are still at their posts. This situation cannot continue. It is time for Coca-Cola to get serious about revitalizing its business, and it can start by providing information about these issues.”
