Athens, Greece – 1 August 2012 – Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company S.A. (Coca‑Cola Hellenic) announces that the Region of Attica by virtue of its decision No. ΕΜ-18753/12/31-7-2012, approved the internal changes to Coca‑Cola Hellenic’s corporate structure.
Coca‑Cola Hellenic’s Greek operating assets and liabilities were transferred to a wholly-owned subsidiary of Coca‑Cola Hellenic in accordance with the provisions of Greek Law 2166/1993.
The changes in the corporate structure bring the operations in Greece in line with the majority of Group operations in other countries, reduce complexity and have no impact on Coca‑Cola Hellenic’s customers, employees or shareholders. The new corporate structure ensures a clear distinction between Coca‑Cola Hellenic, which manages operations in 28 countries, and our Greek operations, which produce, distribute and sell Coca‑Cola Hellenic’s products in Greece.
The name of our company remains Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company SA (distinctive title: Coca‑Cola Hellenic). Our Greek subsidiary is being re-named to Coca‑Cola HBC Greece S.A.I.C, maintaining the widely recognized in Greece distinctive title of Coca‑Cola Tria Epsilon (3E) and continues to be engaged in the production, distribution and sales of our products in Greece as was the case for the last 43 years.
