EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The recommendation of Coca-Cola Company is based on performing various
valuation models, which include HR practices, economic profit analysis, relative
valuation and a fundamental price to earnings valuation model that revealed the
Coca-Cola Company to be overvalued. Even though they find the stock to be
overvalued and they feel that KO has some promising outlooks as well as possible
challenges in the near future and they want to recommend it as a hold instead of
a sell.
The Coca-Cola Company is the #1 company within the non-alcoholic beverages
industry. They have a 20- year standing of being the leader and investors know
that the Coca-Cola Company has an extraordinary reputation for maximizing
shareholder value.
Opportunities that exist for the company in the future is expanding market share
in the non-carbonated beverages segment, a restructuring of their business
model, and better consistency of earnings results.
A challenge that the Coca-Cola Company is facing is the struggle with their global
competitors in the fact that their HR practices are greater and less than coke. If
coke wants to more reputation in the world they must produce more incentives
for employees from which they more done work hard and produce good quality.
Their new management team needs to work on implementing cohesive goals
between the two to reach the Coca-Cola Company’s long-term growth potential.

followed by many more. Today, we produce more than 300 brands.

HISTORY
1886

GIFT Business School 6


HR coca cola

On May 8, 1886, Atlanta druggist Dr. John Styth Pemberton (former


Confederate officer) invented "Coca-Cola" syrup using melted sugar,
water and other ingredients. It was mixed in a 30-gal. Brass kettle
hung over a backyard fire. It was marketed as a "brain and nerve
tonic" in drugstores.
He first "distributes” Coca-Cola by carrying it in a jug down the
street to Jacobs’ Pharmacy. For five cents, consumers can enjoy a
glass of Coca-Cola at the soda fountain. This year, sales of Coca-
Cola average nine drinks per day.
Frank M. Robinson, Pemberton's bookkeeper, was the person who
suggested the name "Coca-Cola", which was chosen because both
words actually named two ingredients found in the syrup. They were
the coca leaf and the Kola nut. Robinson spelled Kola with a “C” to
make it look better in advertising.
Coca-Cola was first sold for 5¢ a glass at a soda fountain in Jacob's
Pharmacy in Atlanta by Willis Venable.The first year's gross sales
were $50 and advertising costs were $73.96.
The original formula included extracts of the African kola nut and
coca leaves, both strong stimulants. "Coca-Cola" was one of
thousands of exotic patent medicines sold in the 1800’s that actually
contained traces of cocaine.

1888

In 1888, Asa Griggs Candler bought the company from Dr.


Pemberton. Later that same year, Dr. Pemberton died. By 1914,
Candler had acquired a fortune of some $50 million. Baseball hall of
famer Cobb, a Georgia native, was another early investor in the
company.

1891

Atlanta entrepreneur Asa Griggs Candler acquires complete


ownership of the Coca-Cola business for $2,300. Within four years,
his merchandising flair helps expand consumption of Coca-Cola to
every part of the nation. In this year Coca-Cola produced its first
calendar.
1893

The trademark "Coca-Cola” name and script are registered with the
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Dr. Pemberton's partner and
bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson suggested the name and penned
"Coca-Cola" in the unique flowing script that is famous worldwide
today. Mr. Robinson thought, "The two C’s would look well in
advertising."

1894

Coca-Cola began as a fountain product, but candy merchant Joseph


A. Biedenharn of Mississippi was looking for a way to serve this
refreshing beverage at picnics. He begins offering bottled Coca-
Cola, using syrup shipped from Atlanta, during this especially busy
summer. Joseph A. Biedenharn, owner of the Biedenharn Candy
Company in Vicksburg, Mississippi, first bottled "Coca-Cola."

1895

"Coca-Cola is now drunk in every state and territory in the U.S." -


Asia Candler.

1898

Edgewood Avenue and College Street—later to be called "Coca-Cola
Place." This year, the Company enters the markets of Canada and

exclusive rights to Joseph B. Whitehead and Benjamin F. Thomas of
Chattanooga, Tennessee, for one dollar. The contract marks the

system that remains the foundation of Company soft-drink
operations. Within 20 years, the regional bottling system will grow
to include 1,000 bottlers, with operations in Cuba, Puerto Rico,
Panama, the Philippines and Guam.

1903

By 1903, the use of cocaine was controversial and "Coca-Cola"


decided to use only "spent coca leaves." It also stopped advertising
"Coca-Cola" as a cure for headaches and other ills.

1906

Cuba and Panama become the first two countries outside the U.S. to
bottle Coca-Cola.
1915

GIFT Business School 8


HR coca cola

Around this time, bottles used by companies in the soft-drink


industry are very similar. And Coca-Cola has many imitators, which
consumers are unable to identify until they take a sip. The answer
is to create a distinct bottle for Coca-Cola, one that anyone would
recognize, even if it were felt in the dark. As a result, the Root
Glass Company of Terre Haute develops the genuine Coca-Cola
bottle with the contour shape now known around the world. It
replaces the straight-sided bottle, giving Coca-Cola a distinct
packaging advantage over the imitations.

1919

The Coca-Cola Company is sold for $25 million to Atlanta banker


Ernest Woodruff and a group of investors. Woodruff was appointed
president of "Coca-Cola" on April 28, 1923 and stayed on the job
until 1955.The same year, the Company's stock is first sold to the
public at $40 a share. One of these original shares was worth about
$6.7 million at the end of 1998 (assuming all dividends were
Reinvested).

1920

The Coca-Cola Company establishes a manufacturing operation in


France. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes rules
that Coca-Cola is a single thing coming from a single source and
well known to the community.

1923

The Coca-Cola Company. His insistence on quality and more than
six decades of leadership take the business to unrivaled heights of
commercial success, making Coca-Cola an institution the world
over. In March 1923, "Coca-Cola" was sold in a 6-bottle carton for
the first time in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Today, products of The Coca-Cola Company are consumed at the
rate of more than one billion drinks per day.

BRANDS / PRODUCT LINE

GIFT Business School 13


HR coca cola

In 2002, Coca-Cola added pop to a category that many believed had


lost its fizz in North America. In May, after just six months in
development, Vanilla Coke became the first extension of the Coca-
Cola brand since 1985 and immediately generated profitable volume.
Vanilla Coke helped boost sales of Coca-Cola branded beverages
while inviting new consumers to rediscover the cola category
through a completely original flavor experience. In product
formulation, the Vanilla Coke team struck a balance that lets the
taste of Coca-Cola come through—intriguingly new, yet undeniably
Coca-Cola. Already one of our top 10 brands in the United States,
Vanilla Coke is performing well in its initial international markets—
including Australia and New Zealand, with more countries planning
launches for 2003. In response to consumer demand, diet Vanilla
Coke was introduced to the U.S. marketplace in October, just three-
and-a-half months after it was given the green light. In 2002, we
also celebrated the 20th anniversary of diet Coke and the expansion
of diet Coke with lemon, which made strong debuts in several
international markets after its U.S. launch in 2001.

In March 1923, "Coca-Cola" was sold in a 6-bottle carton for the


first time in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Today, products of The Coca-Cola Company are consumed at the
rate of more than one billion drinks per day.

of coke in Pakistan.
Two brands “Lemon” and “Strawberry” are recently introduced
products of Coca-cola in Pakistan.

TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT (TQM)


Passion for Quality: -

nurture our relationships and continue to build that trust. That is the
essence of our promise - The Coca-Cola Company exists to benefit
and refresh everyone it touches.
Wherever Coca-Cola does business, we strive to be trusted partners
and good citizens. We are committed to managing our business
around the world with a consistent set of values that represent the
highest standards of integrity and excellence. We share these values
with our bottlers, making our system stronger.

GIFT Business School 14

and will be reflected in all of our relationships and actions - in the
marketplace, the workplace, the environment and the community.

Marketplace: -

We will adhere to the highest ethical standards, knowing that the


quality of our products, the integrity of our brands and the
dedication of our people build trust and strengthen relationships. We

cultures in the communities where we do business.

foster an inclusive environment that encourages all employees to
develop and perform to their fullest potential, consistent with a
commitment to human rights in our workplace. The Coca-Cola

are valued, and where responsibility and accountability are
encouraged and rewarded.

seek to improve the quality of life through locally relevant

Promise. We believe that what is best for our employees, for the
community and for the environment is also best for our business.

ENVIRONMENT OF COCA-COLA

GIFT Business School 15


HR coca cola

In the first decade of the new century, we face the challenge of a


new environment, which is driven by a fundamental shift in
international economic dynamics, the growing influence of
technology and the fact that people increasingly expect more of
large corporations. That challenge demands innovation. While we
will always be disciplined by our purpose and our ideals, we must
intensify our focus on innovation and create new ways to deliver the
promise of Coca-Cola. In fact, in an era that is increasingly
international and interconnected, we must pioneer a movement from
a homogenous global approach to a highly tailored approach
reflecting the unique character of our markets.

This new approach will require:

1) Being innovative in our marketing, our brands and our consumer


relationships

2) Collaborating more productively with our business partners

3) Changing some of the structures of our enterprise

4) Increasing our commitment to community and the environment

Thus, we will reinvigorate our enterprise and bring to full life the
unique spirit of Coca-Cola and our people. Such real renaissance of
the Coca-Cola spirit will enable us to fulfill our purpose of
delivering refreshment and benefit to everyone touched by our
business.

The Coca-Cola Company and our bottlers have been at the forefront
in helping solve environmental, litter and solid waste issues for
more than 20 years. We realize that we touch the lives of billions of
people around the world and that our responsibility to them includes
conducting our business in ways that help preserve the environment.
Soft-drink packaging is the most recycled consumer package in the
United States. Our system supports dozens of litter prevention
organizations, including the Center for Marine Conservation and
Keep America Beautiful. The Coca-Cola Company is a founding
member of Keep America Beautiful.
What's more, we've been recycling at our headquarters for years, to
the tune of thousands of pounds of waste annually. We've donated
more than $100,000 in proceeds from these recycling efforts to
charities.

Shaping new Products experiences with packaging and technology: -


As we created new products and fresh brand experiences in 2002,
one fact became increasingly clear to us: Consumers are eager to see
The Coca-Cola Company bring excitement to the marketplace. One
simple innovation last year—the Fridge Pack™ —has changed the
dimensions of 12-pack sales for us and for our bottling partners.
This sleek, refrigerator-friendly pack is increasing consumer
awareness and preference, accelerating consumption and case
volume in markets where it has been introduced. From our packaging
suppliers who assisted us and our bottlers in developing the Fridge
Pack, to the retailers whose shelves were reconfigured to accept the
new design, partnership made this innovation possible—and
profitable. The future of our business in North America also evolved
in 2002 with the continuing rollout of iFountain, the most advanced
soft-drink dispensing system in the industry. iFountain gives our
customers a technologically advanced fountain system that enhances
available brand options, improves operating efficiency and
automatically calibrates each drink served to assure consumers of a
quality drink every time.

HEALTH AND NUTRITION


Today, people are more concerned than ever about health and
nutrition. They understand the importance of good nutrition and
proper hydration - and they also know that delicious foods and
beverages are an enjoyable part of life. People have trusted and

GIFT Business School 17


HR coca cola

enjoyed soft drinks for more than 115 years, and they can continue
to be confident about their favorite beverages.

In this section, we answer many of the questions you may have about
our family of beverages., We also take a look at how The Coca-Cola
Company promotes a healthy active lifestyle through programs
around the world that promote fun and physical activity.

There is growing confusion about what constitutes a healthy diet.


With so much conflicting information available about health and
nutrition, it can be very difficult to determine what is accurate and
what is not.

The truth is that soft drinks and other beverages have a place in a
healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet incorporates the basic principles of
variety, balance and moderation - without sacrificing enjoyment.

Climate Change: -

The Coca-Cola Company takes the issue of global climate change


very seriously. We have adopted a comprehensive policy aimed at
reducing the environmental impact of our cooling equipment over
time. By the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, we will no longer
purchase new cold-drink equipment using hydrofluorocarbons
(HFC's), wherever cost-efficient alternatives are commercially
available. Additionally, we will reduce the energy use of our
individual equipment by 40-50 percent over the next ten years.
As we developed our cooling equipment policy, we referred to the
basic tenets of the Kyoto Protocol. While we support the scientific
analysis and general objectives of the agreement, we believe that

GIFT Business School 18


HR coca cola

ratification of international treaties and protocols should be left to


national political processes. By focusing on our own efforts to
reduce greenhouse emissions, we hope to provide an example of how
businesses can operate in an environmentally sustainable manner.

between employees and company.

EMPLOYEES
RELATIONSHIP

Employees are the most important assets of every company


so it is very important to give them importance. The
satisfaction of the employees makes the company successful.

GIFT Business School 35


HR coca cola

The reason is that if the employees of the company are


satisfied then they will work hard for the development of the
company but if they are not satisfied with the company’s
policies and they are not given their rights then they will leave
the company which can turn into a big loss. So employees’
relationship is very important for every company.
Every company has its own policy. We have also got our
own policy by which we give importance to our employees if
any employee faces some kind of problem related to his life or
work then he can directly go to the manager and he can share
all of his problems. This thing should be adopted by every
company because this makes the employee satisfied with the
company.
We believe that an open door policy is the best policy for
employees’ relations because due to this, our employees feel
very independent and they know that if they get any problem,
they can contact directly to the manager of their department.
So we strongly believe that such policy makes our employees
satisfy with us.

Safety Policy
We at CCBPL Gujranwala are committed to ensure the maximum
level of safety and prevention of loss for our employees, assets and
visitors. We believe in the involvement of each and every one of us
in this effort and realize the importance of every individual’s
contribution to safety. We strive for continuous improvement in our
safety standards and to the consistently meet or exceed them. We
therefore, will make certain that the necessary financial and
