PARIS (Reuters) -Pernod Ricard reported forecast-beating annual results on Thursday, helped by price increases as the French spirits group benefited, like its rival Diageo, from drinkers trading up to more expensive spirits. The owner of Mumm champagne, Absolut vodka and Martell cognac said that, while the environment remained volatile with high inflation, the war in Ukraine and COVID lockdowns in China, its sales growth would remain "dynamic" and "broad-based", with a good start to the first quarter that began in July. Pernod Ricard shares were off 0.5% at 182.60 euros.
French spirits group Pernod Ricard said on Tuesday it was denying having put new investments in India on hold. "Pernod Ricard refutes having put new investments on hold in India, as claimed by local media this morning," a Pernod Ricard spokesman said in an e-mail to Reuters. "In this news, any reference to the discussions with local authorities that have been reported are out of context," he added.
