We were incorporated in Delaware in 1944 by The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC), and we have been a publicly-traded company since 1986.

 

We sold approximately 41 billion bottles and cans (or 1.9 billion physical cases) throughout our territories during 2009. Products licensed to us through TCCC and its affiliates and joint ventures represented greater than 90 percent of our volume during 2009.

 

We have perpetual bottling rights within our U.S. territories for products with the name “Coca-Cola.” For substantially all other products within the U.S., and all products elsewhere, the bottling rights have stated expiration dates. For all bottling rights granted by TCCC with stated expiration dates, we believe our interdependent relationship with TCCC and the substantial cost and disruption to TCCC that would be caused by nonrenewals of these licenses ensure that they will be renewed upon expiration. The terms of these licenses are discussed in more detail in the sections of this report entitled “North American Beverage Agreements” and “European Beverage Agreements.”

Introduction

This Compensation Discussion and Analysis (CD&A) explains the principles, objectives, and features of our executive compensation program, and it describes how the compensation of our leaders aligns with our corporate objectives and shareowner interests. Although our executive compensation program is applicable to each of our senior officers, this CD&A focuses primarily on the program as applied to our CEO and the other officers included in the Summary Compensation Table, referred to in this proxy collectively as the “Named Executive Officers.”

Unless the context indicates otherwise, this CD&A describes our executive compensation program as in effect during 2007. We frequently review our compensation program and may change or discontinue any aspect of the program at any time. This flexibility ensures that we can continue to be responsive to our and our shareowners’ needs and to the dynamics of the marketplace for executive talent.

This CD&A contains statements regarding company performance targets and goals. These targets and goals are discussed in the limited context of the company’s compensation program and should not be considered statements of management’s expectations or estimates of results or other guidance. The company specifically cautions investors not to apply these statements to other contexts.
