TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Varun Beverages’ first quarter CY20 result was better than expected driven by higher volume contribution from acquired territories and resilient performance from International geographies. Organic domestic volume performance (declined 13.7 per cent) was a bit disappointing, though, as COVID-19 related lockdown had an adverse impact in March (accounts for disproportionately higher volume share).
