SABMiller is one of the world's leading brewers with more than 200 beer brands and some 70,000 employees in over 75 countries. We also have growing businesses in soft drinks and we are one of the world's largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products.
We've become a global leader by excelling locally - nurturing strong, local brands and building brand portfolios that meet the needs of consumers in each of our markets. Our portfolio of brands includes premium international beers such as Pilsner Urquell, Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Miller Genuine Draft and Grolsch, as well as leading local brands such as Águila, Castle, Miller Lite, Snow, Tyskie and Victoria Bitter.
We've created leading positions in both emerging and developed markets across the world. Our portfolio of businesses spans six regions which in the year ended 31 March 2012 together sold 229 million hectolitres of lager, and delivered revenues of US$31,388 million with earnings before interest, tax, amortisation and exceptional items (EBITA) of US$5,634 million. We've grown through a culture of operational excellence, delivering high quality products, innovation and sustainable growth.
We believe that our business is not separate from society, and that the success of SABMiller is inextricably linked to the well-being of the wider community. Everywhere we operate, we're working to build strong local businesses that contribute to their local economies. That's what makes us global leaders in doing business locally.
