Pernod Ricard SA has raised the guidance for its fiscal year on the back of a stronger-than-expected recovery.

The French drinks group said Wednesday it now anticipates an organic growth in profit from recurring operations for fiscal 2021 of around 16%, up from previous guidance of 10%.

In organic terms, that is roughly in line with the performance posted in fiscal 2019 despite sales still being affected by some restrictions, the company said.
