Read the review of KO. Surprised there is no mention of financial interactions between KO and CCE.

Can you really review KO's future without considering this?

Way before quality problems in Europe hit, way before Cadbury appeared, there are financial interactions between the "head" and the "body" of the Coke business model to consider. Are these really (2) separate companies, or did Ivestor palm off non performing assets to the public? Can these assets remain "unlinked" or are we beginning to see serious disruptures in the relationship?

Will CCE force KO to lower product costs? Will governments demand more of a hands off relationship between these (2) generating KO price power erosion?

It would be good to fully understand the past years of financial and operational relationships between these (2) companies. Seems KO has reaped benefits from the early years but is now funding operational problems with accounting sleight of hand.

Anyone have the expertise to evaluate this?
