Read more about the reasons to invest in Britvic PLC.
In Great Britain and Ireland, Britvic has a full portfolio of market-leading family favourites, both owned and as the bottler for PepsiCo. In France and Brazil, the portfolios are all owned brands in a smaller number of categories. In each market we are the leading supplier of flavour concentrates, including Robinsons, Teisseire, MiWadi and Maguary.
In Great Britain, following the completion of the business capability supply chain programme we have invested in new production lines, warehousing and the consolidation of production across three sites.
In October 2020 we signed a new and exclusive 20-year franchise bottling agreement for the production, distribution, marketing and sales of its soft drink brands in Great Britain, which provides access to a portfolio of global brands, including Pepsi MAX, 7UP and now Rockstar. The GB agreement runs to December 2040.
Britvic’s Healthier People, Healthier Planet sustainability ethos underpins every element of our business strategy to ensure we deliver sustainable value for all our stakeholders, and we create a better tomorrow.
Britvic has a strong financing platform. Britvic has both long-term US private placement debt and a £400m sustainability-linked multi-bank revolving credit facility at its disposal.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic Britvic delivered excellent returns for shareholders since the appointment of Simon Litherland as Chief Executive Officer in 2013. Through a progressive dividend policy that delivered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% between 2013 and 2019 and share price growth, Britvic’s total shareholder return outperformed both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 over the six-year timeframe.
As a consumer staple the soft drinks category performance is consistent and relatively stable. Growth is achievable, both through increasing consumption by innovating to meet emerging consumer needs and through premiumisation, which consumers are prepared to pay more for.
