- Full Year 2012 market shares: We continued to win in the marketplace. We gained or maintained volume share in sparkling beverages in 21 out of 28 markets and value share in the overall non-alcoholic ready to drink beverages category in 23 out of 28 of our markets.

- Full Year 2012 free cash flow: Working capital improved by €84 million year-on-year and we generated free cash flow of €341 million. Dimitris Lois, Chief Executive Officer of Coca-Cola Hellenic, commented:

"Our strategy enabled us to grow currency neutral net sales revenue
by 2% for the full year. The volume and revenue growth we generated in the
third quarter continued in the fourth quarter, with revenue growing faster
than volume for the sixth consecutive quarter. In 2012, we maintained our
volume overall, despite the very challenging trading conditions in most of our
markets throughout the year. In 2012, we were able to strengthen our business
further, by expanding our volume and value share in the majority of our
markets, while growing Trademark Coca-Cola products by 2%.
We anticipate that in 2013, disposable income will remain under
pressure, resulting from continued austerity measures and high unemployment,
particularly in our established markets. We will remain focused on delivering
on our strategic priorities: further strengthening our leadership position in
the marketplace, driving revenue growth ahead of volume, executing our cost
optimisation and process efficiency plans, and continuing to generate strong
free cash flow.

The voluntary share exchange offer by Coca-Cola HBC AG will facilitate the listing of the Group on the premium segment of the London Stock Exchange which forms part of our ongoing commitment to enhance shareholder value."

1 Reported COGS refers to cost of goods sold.

2 Reported Gross Profit refers to gross profit.

3 Reported Operating Expenses refers to operating expenses.

4 Reported EBIT refers to operating profit / (loss).

5 Adjusted EBITDA refers to operating profit before deductions for
depreciation and impairment of property, plant and equipment (included both in
cost of goods sold and in operating expenses), amortisation and impairment of
and adjustments to intangible assets, employee share options and other
non-cash items, if any (refer to page 13).

6 Reported Net Profit refers to profit / (loss) after tax attributable to owners of the parent.

7 Reported EPS refers to basic earnings per share.

8 The Group has entered into certain commodity derivatives
transactions in order to mitigate its exposure to commodity price risk. Though
these transactions are economic hedging activities that aim to manage our
exposure to sugar and aluminium price volatility, they do not qualify for
hedge accounting. The fair value gains and losses on the derivatives are
immediately recognised in the income statement in the cost of goods sold line
item. The Group's comparable results exclude the unrealised gains or losses
resulting from the mark-to-market valuation of this hedging activity. These
gains or losses will be reflected in the comparable results in the period when
the underlying transactions will occur, to match the profit or loss impact of
the underlying transactions.

9 Non-recurring items refer mainly to the audit costs relating to the change of the Group's proposed parent entity from Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company S.A., a company incorporated under the laws of Greece, to Coca-Cola HBC AG, a company incorporated under the laws of Switzerland, and the proposed listing of Coca-Cola HBC AG on the premium segment of London Stock Exchange plc.

10 Numbers are adjusted to reflect the impact of the early adopted accounting standards. A comparison with the numbers before adjustments is presented on page 14.

Group Operational Review

Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company S.A. (`Coca-Cola Hellenic' or `we' or the `Group') achieved comparable earnings per share of €0.78 in the full year 2012. We delivered on our commitment to grow revenue ahead of volume, whilst continuing to win in the marketplace, despite a very challenging environment.

Reduced disposable income and high unemployment continued to
negatively impact consumer demand in most of our markets throughout the year.
All of our EU markets experienced consumer confidence levels significantly
below the EU average, with the exception of Austria and the Baltics. Among our
key markets, the most significant decline in consumer confidence in the year
took place in Italy.
In the fourth quarter, unit case volume increased for the second
consecutive quarter, achieving 2% growth year on year. This primarily resulted
from volume improvements in Russia, Nigeria and Poland. Overall, for the full
year 2012, volume was maintained, compared to a 1% decline in 2011.

In both the fourth quarter and the full year 2012, we gained or maintained volume share in sparkling beverages and value share in the non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages ("NARTD") category in most of our markets. More specifically, in the full year, we gained or maintained volume share in the sparkling category in 21 out of 28 markets. In addition, we gained or maintained value share in the total non-alcoholic ready-to-drink market in 23 out of 28 markets.

We continued to grow volume in our key categories, including
sparkling beverages, juice, tea, and energy drinks, which fully reflect the
priorities we have set for the business. Volume of sparkling beverages
increased by 4% in the fourth quarter and was up by 1% year-on-year in 2012.
Our sales of trademark Coca-Cola products grew by 5% in the fourth quarter and
by 2% in the full year 2012. Brand Coca-Cola grew by 5% in the fourth quarter
and by 3% in the full year. Sales volume of Coca-Cola Zero increased by 17% in
the fourth quarter and 13% in the full year, registering growth across all of
our reporting segments. Sales volume in our ready-to-drink tea category
increased by 6% in the quarter and by 4% in the full year, driven by
double-digit growth in the emerging markets segment in both periods under
review. Our energy drinks business grew by 14% in the fourth quarter and by 7%
in the full year, achieving eleven consecutive quarters of volume growth.
Volume in our juice category increased by 1% in the fourth quarter and
declined by 4% in the full year. Volume in our water category declined by 6%
in the fourth quarter and by 4% in the full year 2012.
Both package mix and channel mix are affected by the continuous
shift of consumer demand towards organised trade and at-home consumption. Our
occasion-based brand, package, price and channel strategy ("OBPPC") aims to
grow net sales revenue per unit case, while addressing affordability. Package
mix improved in the water category in both periods under review, in line with
our strategy of focusing on immediate consumption packages, as well as the
most profitable future consumption packages.
Our revenue growth initiatives, including the continued successful
execution of our OBPPC strategy and pricing, enabled us to deliver on our
commitment to grow currency neutral net sales revenue per unit case for the
sixth consecutive quarter. On a currency neutral basis, net sales revenue per
unit case increased by 1% in the fourth quarter, despite an 8% growth in the
comparable prior year period, and by 2% in the full year, excluding the impact
of Belarus. Including the impact of Belarus, currency neutral net sales
revenue per unit case increased by 2% in the quarter and by 3% in the full
year.
Currency neutral input costs per unit case, excluding the impact of
Belarus, grew by 8% in the quarter driven by higher EU sugar prices. In line
with our expectations, currency neutral input costs per unit case, excluding
the impact of Belarus, grew by 6% in the full year. Our revenue growth
initiatives more than offset total input cost increases in 2012 in absolute
terms.

Currency neutral operating expenses per unit case, excluding the impact of Belarus, posted marginal growth in both the fourth quarter and the full year.

Group Operational Review (continued)

In the full year, adverse foreign currency fluctuations resulted in a negative impact of €43 million on operating profit. The vast majority of this impact comes from transactional currency exposures on input costs.

Our comparable EBIT in the fourth quarter declined by €16 million. Comparable EBIT for the full year 2012 declined by 13% to €453 million, mainly due to higher input costs, unfavourable foreign currency fluctuations and higher operating expenses.

As a result of the above, our comparable earnings per share declined by 13% in 2012 to €0.78.

We continue to implement our restructuring initiatives with the aim
of sustainably improving operational efficiency, without affecting our ability
to grow. As previously announced, we accelerated some of our restructuring
plans and brought them forward into 2012. As a result, we incurred a total of
€107 million of pre-tax restructuring charges for the full year. The total
savings from restructuring initiatives implemented during 2011 and 2012
reached €48 million in the full year 2012. We expect the initiatives
undertaken in 2012, to yield approximately €70 million in annualised benefits
from 2013 onwards. As the majority of our 2012 restructuring projects were
initiated in the last quarter, we expect to be in a position to capture most
of the respective benefits during 2013.
On 1 January 2013, Russia, Armenia and the Baltics went live on our
SAP Wave 2 platform. Currently, 26 of our countries, representing 92% of total
Group revenues, use this common platform. This initiative will be finalised
when Nigeria goes live in January 2014. As of the end of 2012, 19 of our
countries had been successfully integrated in our Shared Services Centre. We
remain focused on increasing efficiency through the standardisation of certain
finance and human resources processes through the Shared Services Centre and
we plan to integrate more processes over the next 12-18 months. The shared
services project also allows us to leverage our investment in SAP.
In the full year 2012, cash generated from working capital
reduction was €84 million, mainly driven by improved receivables management.
In the fourth quarter of 2012 we registered a free cash outflow of €21 million
compared to a free cash inflow of €24 million in the comparable prior year
period, mainly due to the reduced profitability this year and the accelerated
restructuring initiatives. We generated free cash flow of €341 million for the
full year, compared to €427 million in 2011. Our free cash flow generation in
the three year period between 2010 and 2012 was 4% below our guidance,
reflecting the impact of our decision to accelerate restructuring in 2012.
In the fourth quarter, the combined heat and power ("CHP") systems
installation programme in our bottling operations achieved another milestone.
In October 2012, our Italian operation inaugurated a new CHP quad-generation
system at the Oricola bottling plant. The new system reduces the plant's
carbon emissions by 43%.

We remain committed to our social responsibilities in the markets we serve, and we were listed among Europe's 120 Environment, Social & Governance ("ESG") leaders by ESG analyst Vigeo. We are the only beverage company to be included on the Vigeo Europe 120 ESG list. The admission to this index means that we are among the companies with the highest level of assurance on their capacity to integrate universally defined ESG objectives and to master associated risks.

On 11 October 2012, Coca-Cola HBC AG, a Swiss company incorporated
by Kar-Tess Holding, announced a voluntary share exchange offer to acquire all
outstanding ordinary registered shares and all American depositary shares of
Coca-Cola Hellenic. The transaction is progressing in line with Coca-Cola HBC
AG's most recent announcements and we expect commencement of the acceptance
period after publication of Coca-Cola Hellenic's audited full year 2012
financial statements and completion of the voluntary share exchange offer
early in the second quarter of 2013.

Note: Numbers are adjusted to reflect the impact of the early

- Unit case volume in our established markets segment decreased by
5% in the fourth quarter of 2012, following an 8% decline in the comparable
prior year period. Weakness in all key categories in Greece and a decline in
sparkling beverages in Italy were the key drivers of the volume decline in the
established markets segment during the quarter. Unit case volume declined by
5% in the full year, following a 3% decline in the comparable prior year
period.

- Net sales revenue declined by 5% in the fourth quarter. Lower volume and an unfavourable category mix more than offset the benefits of our revenue growth initiatives and a positive currency translation impact.

- Volume in Italy declined by mid single-digits in the fourth quarter, reflecting the increasing weakness in underlying economic and trading conditions. In the full year, volume declined by 4%. Austerity measures are negatively affecting disposable income and unemployment continues to rise. Coca-Cola Zero remains the main volume driver in this market, with volume increasing by high teens in the quarter. Volume in our water category increased by low single-digits in the quarter, driven by single-serve packages. We expect volatility to continue, particularly in view of the upcoming elections in February and the further one percentage point VAT increase in July.

- Volume in Switzerland declined by mid single-digits in the fourth
quarter and by 4% in the full year. The overall environment remains unchanged
with the strong Swiss Franc versus the Euro, impacting both tourism and
consumer shopping habits. Among key categories, Coca-Cola Zero continues to
resonate well with consumers, showing mid single-digits growth in the quarter.
Package mix improved in the fourth quarter, reflecting the impact of our OBBPC
initiatives as well as strong Christmas activation.
- Volume in Ireland declined by mid single-digits in the fourth
quarter and by 6% in the full year. The sparkling category performed better in
the fourth quarter as a result of a high single-digit growth in Coca-Cola
Zero. In addition to category development, we continue to focus on driving
package mix, which improved in both the quarter and the full year. This
improvement was driven by sparkling beverages, and in particular by the 350ml
PET packages, as well as the 330ml can.
- Volume in Greece declined in the mid-teens in the fourth quarter.
In the full year, volume decreased by 14%. The overall environment continued
to deteriorate in the fourth quarter. Unemployment rate reached 27% and
consumer confidence is the lowest in Europe based on EU Commission data.
Sparkling beverages continue to perform better than the overall portfolio with
volume declining by high single-digits in the quarter. Looking ahead, the
lately approved €13.5 billion austerity package is further affecting
disposable income in the country. We remain focused on addressing
affordability, while improving efficiency across our operation.
- Comparable operating profit in the established markets segment
declined to €13 million in the fourth quarter and €160 million in the full
year 2012. Lower volume, increased raw material costs and negative category
mix more than offset the improvement in price mix and the benefits from our
restructuring initiatives, which resulted in lower operating expenses in the
fourth quarter, as well as the full year.

period. Unit case volume declined by 2% in the full year 2012, following a 2%
increase in the comparable prior year period.

- Net sales revenue increased by 6% in the fourth quarter, reflecting the benefits of higher volume, positive price mix and favourable currency translation impact.

- Volume in Poland grew by mid single-digits in the fourth quarter,
although over the full year it declined by 1%. In line with our strategy, core
sparkling beverages were the main volume driver in the quarter, posting a low
double-digit increase. Brand Coca-Cola grew by high single-digits, while
Coca-Cola Zero, Fanta and Sprite grew by double-digits. This improvement
reflects the successful activation during the Christmas period particularly in
the organised trade channel.
- Volume in the Czech Republic declined by low single-digits in the
fourth quarter, mainly due to lower volume in our water category. In the full
year 2012, volume declined by 4%. Activation in the organised trade channel
and co-operation with key customers, supported a mid single-digit growth in
core sparkling beverages. Coca-Cola Zero and Fanta posted double-digit growth
in the quarter and Sprite grew by high single-digits. New flavour launches of
Monster products, resulted in high single-digit growth in our energy category.
- Volume in Hungary declined by mid single-digits in the fourth
quarter and by 3% in the full year. Throughout the year, conditions in the
country remained challenging, characterized by low consumer confidence and
negative economic growth. During the fourth quarter we cycled fully the impact
from the introduction of the public health tax in September 2011. As a result,
volume in our energy category more than doubled in the fourth quarter. Among
sparkling beverages, increased distribution in Coca-Cola Zero contributed to
strong double-digit growth. Package mix improved in the quarter in both the
sparkling beverages and water categories.
- Developing markets posted losses of €5 million at the operating
level in the fourth quarter, while for the full year, comparable operating
profit stood at €27 million. In the fourth quarter, increased raw material
costs, that resulted from higher EU sugar prices more than offset the benefits
from our revenue growth initiatives and slightly higher volume.

Note: Numbers are adjusted to reflect the impact of the early

- Unit case volume in our emerging markets segment grew by 8% in the fourth quarter of 2012, following flat volume performance in the comparable prior year period. Unit case volume was 4% higher in the full year of 2012, following a 1% decline in the comparable prior year period.

- Net sales revenue grew by 14% in the fourth quarter, benefitting from higher volume, the positive impact of our revenue growth initiatives, as well as favourable currency translation impact.

- Volume in Russia grew by mid-teens in the fourth quarter,
following a mid single-digit increase in the comparable prior year period. In
the full year, volume increased by 10%. Once again, volume increased across
all key categories in the fourth quarter, resulting in market share gains in
both sparkling beverages and total NARTD. Strong activation during the
Christmas period, executed across the country and continuous benefits from
increased distribution of our 1.5L PET package in the sparkling category
resulted in a 21% increase in the volume of core sparkling beverages. Brand
Coca-Cola grew by 21% marking the ninth consecutive quarter of volume and
share expansion. Similarly, Fanta grew by 28% and Sprite by 19%. In our tea
category, volume grew by 44% during the fourth quarter, outperforming
competition. Juice volume increased by 21%, with strong growth in both Dobry
and Rich.
- Volume in Nigeria grew by high single-digits in the fourth
quarter, following a mid single-digit decline in the corresponding period last
year. Volume decreased by 2% in the full year 2012. Volume improvement in the
fourth quarter was driven by sparkling beverages and particularly brand
Coca-Cola that grew by low-teens. Volume in our water category grew by high
single-digits, reflecting the increasing availability and the positive impact
of the launch of our new lighter 1.5L PET bottle. Our strategy in the country
remains focused on increasing availability and expanding distribution coverage
of our core products.
- Volume in Romania posted marginal growth in the fourth quarter,
and increased by 1% in the full year. Coca-Cola grew by low double-digits in
the quarter and Coca-Cola Zero posted strong double-digits growth. Strong
activation during the key Christmas period and the continuous benefits from
our OBPPC initiatives resulted in improved package mix, driven by single-serve
packages in the sparkling category. Volume in our tea category increased
marginally, benefiting from the recent launch of Nestea Plum.
- Volume in Ukraine decreased by low single-digits in the fourth
quarter driven by the performance of our water category. Sparkling beverages
grew by low double-digits, driven by a mid-teens growth in Coca-Cola and a
high single-digit growth in Fanta. This reflects the positive impact of our
display building program and seasonal activation. In the full year, the total
sparking beverages market declined in the mid-teens while we managed to keep
the volume decline at 6%.

- Comparable operating profit in the emerging markets segment increased by 14% in the fourth quarter and by 35% in the full year 2012. In the fourth quarter, higher volume, better category mix and the benefits of our revenue growth initiatives were only partially offset by higher operating expenses, and the negative impact of increased raw material costs.

Business Outlook

In 2013, we anticipate a challenging macroeconomic environment,
particularly in our established markets. Austerity measures are expected to
continue to affect disposable income and unemployment is still on the rise in
most of our countries, reaching an all-time high of 11.7% in the Eurozone in
December 2012.
Our strategic priorities to strengthen our business remain
unchanged. We are focused on winning in the marketplace while growing currency
neutral revenue per unit case through OBPPC-driven initiatives. Such
initiatives allow us to balance price and package decisions with affordability
considerations, thereby remaining relevant to consumers. We are confident that
this is the right strategy to drive sustainable profitable volume and revenue
growth.

We expect currency neutral revenue per unit case in 2013 to continue to grow year-on-year, albeit at a slower pace.

In 2013, we expect currency neutral input costs per case to increase by low single-digits, driven by EU sugar, PET resin, and aluminium.

We continue to pursue further opportunities to sustainably improve operational efficiencies. In this respect, we have identified additional restructuring initiatives. We expect to incur costs of approximately €50 million from restructuring initiatives in 2013 that are expected to yield €30 million in annualised benefits from 2014 onwards. We expect the initiatives already taken in 2012 and those that we will take in 2013 to yield approximately €65 million in total benefits in 2013.

Based on current spot rates, we expect a negative impact from currency fluctuations in 2013, albeit lower than 2012.

We expect our comparable effective tax rate for the mid-term to range between 23-25%.

Our emphasis on free cash flow generation and tight working capital
management continues. We today announce a free cash flow target for the three
year period ending 31 December 2015 of €1.3 billion, in line with our
macroeconomic and input cost assumptions set out above. This target supersedes
all prior years' free cash flow guidance in its entirety completely. Our
annual net capital expenditure is expected to range between 5.5% and 6.5% of
net sales revenue over the mid-term.
We will continue to plan and invest for the long term. Our
geographic footprint offers ample scope for growth and we are convinced that
we are pursuing the right strategy to grow in a sustainable and profitable way
and win at the point of sale. We will continue to capture the benefits of our
revenue growth management strategy, improve operating efficiencies by focusing
on cost leadership, and strengthen our free cash flow to create value for our
shareholders.

3 Numbers are adjusted to reflect the impact of the early adopted accounting standards. A comparison with the numbers before adjustments is presented on page 14.

Net sales revenue

Net sales revenue per unit case increased by 3% during the year and
the fourth quarter of 2012 on a reported basis. On a currency neutral basis,
net sales revenue per unit case increased by 3% in 2012 and 2% in the fourth
quarter. For the fourth quarter and on a currency neutral basis, net sales
revenue per unit case remained flat in the established and developing markets
and increased by approximately by 4% in the emerging markets.

Cost of goods sold

Comparable cost of goods sold increased by 6% during the year and 7% in the
fourth quarter of 2012. Comparable cost of goods sold per unit case increased
by 6% during the year and 5% during the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to
the respective prior year periods, mainly reflecting higher commodity costs,
especially EU sugar prices and the accelerated growth of our sparkling and
tea
categories.
Gross profit

Comparable gross profit margins decreased from 37.7% in 2011 to 35.9% in 2012 and from 35.7% in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 34.6% in the fourth quarter of 2012. On a per unit case basis, comparable gross profit decreased by approximately 2% during 2012 and remained flat in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to the respective prior year periods. On a currency neutral basis, comparable gross profit per unit case also decreased by 2% during the year and increased 1% in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to the respective prior year periods.

Operating expenses

Comparable operating expenses on a currency neutral basis increased
by 1% during the year and by 3% in the fourth quarter of 2012, in each case
versus the respective prior year periods, as increased sales, administration,
warehouse and distribution expenses only partially offset the lower marketing
expenses.
Operating profit
Comparable operating profit decreased from €523 million in 2011 to
€453 in the full year of 2012, due to increased raw materials costs,
unfavourable foreign currency fluctuations and higher operating expenses.
Comparable operating profit decreased from €72 million in the fourth quarter
of 2011 to €56 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Our comparable operating
margin decreased from 7.7% in 2011 to 6.4% in 2012 and from 4.7% in the fourth
quarter of 2011 to 3.5% in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Total net finance costs

Total net finance costs, decreased by €4.5 million during 2012 and by €8 million during the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to the same periods of the prior year.

Tax

On a comparable basis, Coca-Cola Hellenic's effective tax rate for 2012 was approximately 23% compared to 25% in the prior year period. The Group's effective tax rate varies quarterly depending on the mix of taxable profits by territory, non-deductibility of certain expenses, non-taxable income and other one-off tax items across its territories.

Profit after tax attributable to owners of the parent

On a comparable basis, profit after tax attributable to owners of
the parent was €285 million in 2012, compared to profit after tax attributable
to owners of the parent of €326 million in prior year, driven mainly by the
decreased operating profit. In the fourth quarter of 2012, comparable profit
after tax attributable to owners of the parent was €22 million, compared to
€29 million in the prior year period, as the decrease in operating profit was
partially offset by improved finance costs and taxes.

Net cash from operating activities

Net cash from operating activities was €754 million in 2012 versus €828 million in the prior year period. Cash outflow from operating activities net of capital expenditure was €21 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a cash inflow of €24 million in the respective prior year period.

Capital expenditure

Capital expenditure, net of receipts from the disposal of assets and including
principal repayments of finance lease obligations, amounted to €412 million in
2012, compared to €401 million in the respective prior year period.

Supplementary Information

Impact of adjustments from newly adopted accounting standards

In 2012, the Group determined that it would early adopt IFRS 10
Consolidated Financial Statements, IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements, IFRS 12
Disclosure of Interest in Other Entities and the revised IAS 19 Employee
Benefits (refer to note 1 of the condensed consolidated financial statements
for more information). As a result of the early adoption of the above
standards, certain adjustments were made to the condensed financial statements
retrospectively. The following table presents a comparison of selected income
statement items and other items before and after these adjustments as well as
the impact of the adjustments:

1 Comparative amounts have been adjusted where necessary to reflect changes in accounting policies as detailed in Note 1.

1. Accounting policies

The accounting policies used in the preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements of Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company S.A. ("Coca-Cola Hellenic" or the "Group") are consistent with those used in the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2011, except for:

a) The adoption, as of 1 January 2012, of the revision to International Financial Reporting Standard ("IFRS") 7 Financial Instrument Disclosures - disclosures on transfers of financial assets. The adoption of this revised accounting standard did not have a significant impact on the current or prior periods.

b) Changes in accounting policies and disclosures:

The Group has early adopted IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial
Statements, IFRS 12 Disclosures of Interests in Other Entities and
consequential amendments to IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint
Venture' and IAS 27 Separate Financial Statement. The Group assessed that the
adoption of IFRS 10 did not result in any change in the consolidation status
of its subsidiaries.
At the same time, the Group has early adopted IFRS 11 Joint
Arrangements. This resulted in the Group changing its accounting policy for
its interest in joint arrangements. Under IFRS 11, investments in joint
arrangements are classified either as joint operations or joint ventures
depending on the contractual rights and obligations each investor has, rather
than the legal structure of the joint arrangement. Interests in joint ventures
are accounted for using the equity method and interests' in joint operations
are accounted for by recognizing the group's share of assets, liabilities,
revenues and expenses. The group has assessed the nature of its joint
arrangements and classified them as either joint operations or joint ventures.
In addition, the Group has early adopted the revised IAS 19
Employee Benefits. This resulted in the Group changing its accounting policy
for defined benefit plans. Under the revised IAS 19, past service costs are
recognized immediately in the income statement and the expected return on plan
assets is calculated using the same interest rate as applied for the purpose
of discounting the benefit obligation.

The Group has also early adopted the IAS 1 Presentation of Items of Other Comprehensive income - Amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements. The amendments change the grouping of items presented in other comprehensive income between items that may be reclassified to the income statement at a future point in time and those that will not be reclassified.

The Group has applied the above mentioned changes in accounting policies at the beginning of the earliest period presented. The impact from the adoption of IFRS 11 and IAS 19 revised is presented in the tables below:

Our net debt decreased during 2012 by €93.3 million compared to 31 December 2011. The decrease in the net debt was mainly the result of net repayments of external borrowings and finance lease obligations. During the third quarter of 2012 the $500 million bond maturing in September 2013 was reclassified to short term borrowings from long term borrowings.

6. Restructuring costs

Restructuring costs amounted to €106.7 million before tax in 2012. The Group recorded €65.8 million, €34.8 million and €6.1 million of restructuring charges in its established, developing and emerging markets respectively. For the year 2011, restructuring costs amounted to €71.1 million, of which €47.6 million, €17.6 million and €5.9 million related to the Group's established, developing and emerging markets, respectively. The restructuring costs mainly concern redundancy costs and impairment of property, plant and equipment.

Restructuring costs amounted to €81.9 million before tax in the
fourth quarter of 2012. The Group recorded €50.5 million, €29.6 million and
€1.8 million of restructuring charges in its established, developing and
emerging markets respectively. For the fourth quarter of 2011, restructuring
costs amounted to €46.5 million, of which €35.4 million, €9.1 million and €2.0
million related to the Group's established, developing and emerging markets,
respectively. The restructuring costs mainly concern redundancy costs and
impairment of property, plant and equipment.

Total net finance costs for 2012 were lower by €4.5 million
compared to last year, mainly due to the lower losses on net monetary position
due to the hyperinflationary impact of Belarus and the higher interest income.
Total net finance costs in the fourth quarter of 2012 were lower by €8.0
million compared to the same period of last year, mainly due to lower losses
on the net monetary position.

Hyperinflation

Belarus has been considered to be a hyperinflationary economy since
the fourth quarter of 2011. The three year cumulative inflation exceeded 100%
and therefore Belarus is consolidated in terms of the measuring unit at the
balance sheet date and translated at the closing exchange rate. The
restatement was based on conversion factors derived from the Belarus Consumer
Price Index (CPI) as compiled by the National Statistical Committee of the
Republic of Belarus. The conversion factor used for December 2012 was 1.223
which resulted in a net monetary loss for 2012 of €3.1 million.

8. Tax

The Group's effective tax rate for 2012 may differ from the Greek statutory tax rate of 20% as a consequence of a number of factors, the most significant of which are: the statutory tax rates of the countries in which the Group operates, non-deductibility of certain expenses, non-taxable income and one off tax items.

By virtue of a tax law that was enacted in Greece on 23 January 2013, the Greek corporate income tax rate was increased to 26% for accounting years starting as of 1 January 2013 onwards.

9. Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the net profit
attributable to the owners of the parent by the weighted average number of
shares outstanding during the period (2012 full year: 363,867,871 , fourth
quarter of 2012: 363,123,172 , 2011 full year: 363,010,078, fourth quarter of
2011: 363,111,625). Diluted earnings per share is calculated by adjusting the
weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding to assume conversion of
all dilutive ordinary shares arising from exercising employee stock options.

10. Share capital

During 2011, the Board of Directors resolved on the increase of
Coca-Cola Hellenic's share capital by issuing 354,512, 21,994, 28,749 and 313
new ordinary shares, as announced on 16 March, 24 June, 1 September 2011 and
13 December 2011 respectively, following the exercise of stock options
pursuant to the Coca-Cola Hellenic employees' stock option plan. Total
proceeds from the issuance of the shares under the stock option plan amounted
to €4.7 million.
On 6 May 2011, the Annual General Meeting of shareholders resolved
on the reorganisation of its share capital. The Group's share capital
increased by an amount equal to €549.7 million. This increase was effected by
capitalising the share premium reserve and increasing the nominal value of
each share from €0.50 to €2.00. The share capital was subsequently decreased
by an amount equal to €183.2 million by decreasing the nominal value of each
share from €2.00 to €1.50, and distributing such €0.50 per share difference to
shareholders in cash.
On 25 June 2012, the Annual General Meeting of shareholders
resolved to decrease the share capital of the Company by the amount of €124.6
million by decreasing the nominal value of the Company's share by €0.34 per
share, from €1.50 to €1.16 per share, and the return of the amount of the
decrease to the Company's shareholders in cash, i.e. a return of €0.34 per
share. Furthermore, on the same date, it was resolved to decrease the share
capital of the Company by the amount of €55.0 million by decreasing the
nominal value of the Company's share by €0.15 per share, from €1.16 to €1.01
per share, in order to extinguish accumulated losses of the parent company
Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company S.A. in an equal amount.
During 2012, the Board of Directors resolved on the increase of
Coca-Cola Hellenic's share capital by issuing 5,334 new ordinary shares on 21
March 2012 and 6,165 new ordinary shares on 27 September 2012, following the
exercise of stock options pursuant to the Coca-Cola Hellenic employees' stock
option plan. Total proceeds from the issuance of the shares under the stock
option plan amounted to €0.1 million.

The share capital on 31 December 2012 amounts to €370.2 million and is comprised of 366,553,507 shares with a nominal value of €1.01 each.

11. Non-controlling interests

On 8 June 2011, the Board of Directors of the Company's subsidiary
Nigerian Bottling Company plc ("NBC") resolved to propose a scheme of
arrangement between NBC and its minority shareholders, involving the
cancellation of part of the share capital of NBC. The transaction was approved
by the Board of Directors and General Assembly of NBC on 8 June 2011 and 22
July 2011 respectively and resulted in acquisition of the remaining 33.6% of
the voting shares of NBC bringing the Group's interest in the subsidiary to
100%. The transaction was completed in September 2011 and NBC was de-listed
from the Nigerian Stock Exchange. The consideration for the acquisition of non
controlling interests was €100.2 million, including transaction costs of €1.8
million, out of which €70.4 million was paid as of 31 December 2012 (as of 31
December 2011: €56.5 million). The difference between the consideration and
the carrying value of the interest acquired (€60.1 million) has been
recognised in retained earnings while the accumulated components recognised in
other comprehensive income have been reallocated within the equity of the
Group.
On 25 June 2010, the Group initiated a tender offer to purchase all
of remaining shares of the non-controlling interest in Coca-Cola HBC - Srbija
A.D., Zemun (`'CCH Serbia''). The tender offer was completed on 2 August 2010
and resulted in the Group increasing its stake in CCH Serbia to 91.2% as of 31
December 2010. In 2011, the Group acquired all the remaining interest in the
subsidiary. The consideration paid for the acquisition of non controlling
interest acquired in 2011 was €17.7 million and the carrying value of the
additional interest acquired was €11.4 million. The difference between the
consideration and the carrying value of the interest acquired has been
recognised in retained earnings.

12. Dividends

No dividend was declared and paid for the fiscal years 2011 and 2012.

13. Contingencies

In 1992, our subsidiary Nigerian Bottling Company ("NBC") acquired
a manufacturing facility in Nigeria from Vacunak, a Nigerian Company. In 1994,
Vacunak filed a lawsuit against NBC, alleging that a representative of NBC had
orally agreed to rescind the sale agreement and instead enter into a lease
agreement with Vacunak. As part of its lawsuit Vacunak sought compensation for
rent and loss of business opportunities. NBC discontinued all use of the
facility in 1995.

In a judgement delivered by the Nigerian court of first instance on 28 June 2012, the court awarded Vacunak damages in an amount equivalent to approximately €7 million. NBC has filed an appeal against the judgment. Based on advice from NBC's outside legal counsel, we believe that it is unlikely that NBC will suffer material financial losses from this case. We have consequently not provided for any losses in relation to this case.

In the second quarter of 2010, the Serbian Competition Authority
opened an investigation into the commercial practices of our Serbian
subsidiary for potential abuse of dominance in the market for distribution of
alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. On December 2012, the authority
addressed a statement of objections to our Serbian subsidiary. We believe that
our Serbian subsidiary has not violated any Serbian competition rules and we
will challenge any such allegations vigorously.

Except the above mentioned items, there have been no other significant changes in contingencies since 31 December 2011 (as described in the 2011 Annual Report available on the Coca-Cola Hellenic's web site: www.coca-colahellenic.com).

14. Commitments

As of 31 December 2012 the Group has capital commitments of €90.3 million (31 December 2011: €93.9 million), which mainly relate to plant and machinery equipment.

15. Number of employees

The average number of full-time equivalent employees in 2012 was 39,736 (41,291 for 2011).

17. Disposal / acquisition of subsidiaries

In February 2011, we sold all our interests in Eurmatik S.r.l., the
vending operator in Italy. The consideration was €13.5 million and the cash
and cash equivalent disposed were €0.4 million. The disposal resulted in the
Group derecognising €12.0 million of intangible assets and €12.7 million of
net assets. The disposal of Eurmatik S.r.l resulted in a gain of €0.8 million
in the Group's established segment.
On 20 April 2011, the Group, along with TCCC, acquired through
Multon ZAO, the Russian juice joint venture, all outstanding shares of MS
Foods UAB, a company that owns 100% of the equity of Vlanpak FE, a fruit juice
and nectar producer in Belarus. Our share of the acquisition consideration was
€3.9 million including an assumption of debt of €1.4 million. The acquisition
has resulted in the Group recording of intangible assets of €2.9 million in
its emerging segment.

18. Voluntary share exchange offer

AG's most recent announcements and we expect commencement of the acceptance
period after publication of Coca-Cola Hellenic's audited full year 2012
financial statements and completion of the voluntary share exchange offer
early in the second quarter of 2013. The Group has incurred expenses of €4.2
million, mainly for audit and advisory fees, relating to this transaction.

19. Subsequent events
