Carlsberg lifts 2017 operating profit guidance despite slip in third-quarter sales

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Danish brewer Carlsberg (CARLb.CO) said on Thursday third-quarter sales slipped more than expected, but it lifted its operating profit guidance for 2017.

    The company said in a trading update that it expects organic operating profit growth of 7-8 percent in 2017, up from an earlier expectation of “mid-single-digit” percentage growth.

    Carlsberg’s third-quarter net revenue slipped 1 percent in the quarter from a year earlier to 16.7 billion Danish crowns ($2.62 billion), below the 17.1 billion expected by analysts in a Reuters poll.
