Doros Constantinou, Executive Director, Frigoglass, commented:

"We are pleased to report yet another year of strong progress in sales, particularly when set against our comparable prior year growth of 31.9%. Our Cool business delivered a 20.4% increase in sales with growth across most geographies, highlighting our strong focus on providing solutions for our customers, reinforcing our sector-leading position. Our Glass business recorded its strongest ever result, delivering 26.3% sales growth in the full year. Operating profits grew despite increasingly challenging trading conditions through the course of the year, high input costs and a number of one-off items.

While we see continuing challenges in 2012, particularly in Europe, we expect to deliver further growth across most regions in Cool Operations. In our growing Glass business, we enter 2012 from a position of strength and we expect to deliver further positive momentum. Our financial priority is to maximise free cash flow and further strengthen our capital structure. While the macro-economic outlook is uncertain and input costs remain comparatively high, we are confident of making good progress given our extensive geographic footprint, leading global position and our strong relationships with the leading beverage companies around the world."
