yeah, that came out a couple weeks ago.

their actual sales were up 9.5% (about the same as cokes%).

the profit number is a little misleading because pepsi's profits were unusually low last year (because of a tax charge).

for both, pepsi and coke, north american case volume for sodas was down slightly (pepsi down 2% and coke down 1%).

most of their growth came from overseas and their non-carbonated beverages.
