Coca-Cola Co reported higher quarterly earnings on Tuesday, helped by sales increases in North America and internationally.

The world's largest soft-drink maker, whose brands range from Sprite to Minute Maid and Powerade, said net income was $2.22 billion, or 95 cents per share, in the third quarter, up from $2.06 billion, or 88 cents per share, a year earlier.

Excluding items, earnings were $1.03 per share.

Revenue jumped 45 percent to $12.25 billion.
