In recent times, Twitter (TWTR) executives have talked favorably about the company’s data licensing business, saying it was shaping up to be a key driver of growth and profitability. In 4Q17, Twitter’s revenues from data licensing and other non-advertising sources (known as its DES business) grew 10% YoY (year-over-year) to $87 million, building on its growth of 22% during the previous quarter. Notably, Twitter was able to ink a significant number of new data licensing deals with enterprises during 4Q17, and this led to the continued growth in DES business in the quarter.
Coca-Cola’s (KO) unit volumes remained unchanged on a year-over-year basis in 4Q17 as well as in full-year 2017. In full-year 2017, Coca-Cola’s sparkling beverage volumes fell 1%. Coca-Cola is trying to improve its beverage volumes by focusing on innovation of healthier products that cater to consumer needs.
The decline in Coca-Cola’s 4Q17 revenue was primarily due to the impact of refranchising of the company’s bottling operations. Coca-Cola has been reducing its exposure to the lower-margin, capital-intensive bottling business and focusing more on its concentrates business. In October 2017, Coca-Cola completed the refranchising of its US bottling territories.
