Britvic PLC said Friday that revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased and that it expects to meet guidance for the whole year.

The soft-drinks company BVIC, +3.48%  , which houses the Fruit Shoot, Robinsons, J2O and Tango brands among its portfolio, said that revenue for the quarter ended Dec. 31 rose 4.9% to 369.8 million pounds ($482.6 million).

It added that the quarterly results benefited from the inclusion of additional trading days in the period, following the company’s recent move to monthly accounting. On a comparable days and constant currency basis, revenue was still up 2.6%.

“While we anticipate conditions will remain challenging, we are confident of achieving market expectations for the year,” Chief Executive Simon Litherland said.
