Item 8.01 Other Events.
As previously disclosed, effective January 1, 2007, The Coca-Cola Company (the "Company") made certain changes to its operating structure. The Company combined the Eurasia and Middle East Division, and the Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Division, both of which had previously been included in the North Asia, Eurasia and Middle East operating segment, with the India Division, which had previously been included in the East, South Asia and Pacific Rim operating segment, to form the Eurasia operating segment; and combined the China Division and the Japan Division, both of which had previously been included in the North Asia, Eurasia and Middle East operating segment, with the remainder of the East, South Asia and Pacific Rim operating segment to form the Pacific operating segment. As a result, beginning with the first quarter of 2007, the Company's operating structure consists of the following operating segments: Africa, Eurasia, European Union, Latin America, North America, Pacific, Bottling Investments and Corporate.
The Company is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to revise historical operating segment information contained in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006 (the "2006 Form 10-K") to correspond with the Company's current reportable operating segments and to reflect certain immaterial adjustments to segment-related information. Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein contains Items from the 2006 Form 10-K, updated to reflect revised operating segment information. The Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 30, 2007, June 29, 2007, and September 28, 2007 reflect the Company's currently reportable operating segments.
The updates to the 2006 Form 10-K relate solely to the presentation of operating segment-specific information as described above and do not affect the Company's previously reported consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. All other information in the 2006 Form 10-K remains unchanged and has not been otherwise updated for events or developments that occurred subsequent to the filing of the 2006 Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission. For material developments since the filing of the 2006 Form 10-K, refer to the Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 30, 2007, June 29, 2007, and September 28, 2007.
