The Pernod-Ricard group (Martell cognac) had net profits (group share) of 831 million euros (+30%) and profit from ordinary activities (Group share) of 833 million. Lastly, a fight is likely in the takeover of Absolut vodka which the Swedish government is privatizing : Ricard (Martell) and Fortune Brands (Courvoisier) are in the running.
