SABMiller plc today issues its interim management statement for the group's third quarter ended 31 December 2011. Delta Beverages delivered lager volume growth of 19% supported by further improved product availability. Delta also contributed with a stellar growth in soft drink sales.

Lager volumes for the third quarter were 3% ahead of the prior year with good growth in all our regions with the exception of Europe and North America. Soft drinks volumes grew by 6% for the quarter with growth across all regions.

Organic, constant currency group revenue grew 7% for the quarter. Group revenue per hectolitre grew 3% on the same basis supported principally by price benefits, with mix gains achieved in all regions except Europe. Overall, financial performance for the quarter was in line with our expectations.

Lager volumes in Africa grew by 11%, despite cycling strong comparatives (third quarter volumes grew by 12% last year) and capacity constraints in a number of markets. Tanzania lager volumes grew by 13% driven by both solid growth in premium brands and the strengthening of mainstream brands due to expanded and intensified sales and distribution.

Continued extension of market penetration grew lager volumes in Uganda, up 17%. Zambia lager volumes increased 16% underpinned by robust growth of our mainstream portfolio against a backdrop of strong economic conditions.

Lager volumes in Mozambique grew by 8% benefiting from the launch of the Impala brand, a cassava based beer, and strong growth in the north of the country.  

Castel grew lager volumes by 9% with a strong performance in Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Soft drinks volumes grew by 9% driven by solid performances from South Sudan, Ghana, Zimbabwe, and from our associate Castel.
