Coca-Cola FEMSA, S.A.B. de C.V., known as Coca-Cola FEMSA or KOF, is a Mexican multinational beverage company headquartered in Mexico City, Mexico. It is a subsidiary of FEMSA which owns 48% of its stock, with 28% held by wholly owned subsidiaries of The Coca-Cola Company and the remaining 24% listed publicly on the Mexican Stock Exchange (since 1993) and the New York Stock Exchange (since 1998).[1] The largest franchise Coca-Cola bottler in the world, the company has operations in Latin America and the Philippines, although its largest and most profitable market is in Mexico.[2][3]

Coca-Cola FEMSA began as a joint venture with The Coca Cola Company in 1991 with FEMSA initially owning 51% of the stock. It started expanding its international operations in 2003 when it acquired Panoramico, another Mexican Coca-Cola bottler with operations in Central America, Colombia, Venezuela, and Brazil. It later acquired additional bottling companies in Brazil (its second largest market) as well as the main Coca-Cola bottler in the Philippines in 2013.[3][4] The company reported revenues of US$ 9.6 billion for 2015.[2]
