P&G’s CEO on Q1 results: ‘Purpose-inspired growth strategy’ is working

BY Antoinette Alexander

CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble announced on Wednesday that first-quarter earnings per share from continuing operations exceeded estimates and rose 5% as net sales rose 2% to $20.1 billion.

"Our first quarter was a good start to the fiscal year. We maintained our top-line momentum and delivered profitable market share growth," stated chairman, president and CEO Bob McDonald. "We are confident that our purpose-inspired growth strategy — to touch and improve the lives of more consumers in more parts of the world, more completely — will continue to drive growth and create value for shareholders. While the macro-economic environment remains challenging, the solid first-quarter results demonstrate that our strategy is working."

Net sales for the July-to-September period rose 2% to $20.1 billion, as organic sales grew 4%. Volume increased 8%, with growth in all major geographic regions and 5-of-6 business segments.

Key initiatives for the quarter included the North American launches of Crest Pro-Health Clinical, Tide with Acti-Lift, Gain dishwashing liquid, Febreze Set ‘n Refresh and Gucci Guilty.

In beauty, net sales were in line with the prior year period at $4.9 billion on unit volume growth of 4%. Organic sales grew 3%. Volume in female beauty grew mid-single digits, primarily behind double-digit growth of Olay. Net earnings rose 7% to $829 million.

In grooming, net sales rose 2% to $1.9 billion on a 5% increase in unit volume. Organic sales were up 6%. Male grooming volume grew mid-single digits due to higher shipments of blades and razors, mainly in developing regions, and deodorants in North America and Latin America. Net earnings increased 13% to $398 million.

In health care, net sales were in line with the prior year period at $3 billion on unit volume growth of 6%. Organic sales grew 4%. Oral care volume was up in the high single digits behind the launch of Crest Pro-Health Clinical in North America, expansion of Oral-B toothpaste in Brazil, Belgium and Holland, and the success of the Pro-Health innovation in multiple markets around the world. Net earnings declined 10% to $495 million driven by lower operating margin mainly due to higher marketing spending.

BY Antoinette Alexander

NEW YORK Pop star Justin Bieber has teamed up with Etoile Nation Beauty to develop a collection of fragrance-infused accessories that will be sold at Walmart.

 

The My World collection includes collectible wristbands and dog tags infused with a fragrance selected by Bieber. Top notes of bergamot, lychee and pomegranate create a unisex scent. For an encore performance: cedar glimmers against a backdrop of musk, creating the signature scent.

 

There are four Bieber-inspired designs:

  • Icon: Uses symbols to represent his lifestyle and the youth culture he influences;
  • Energy: Captures the excitement of a Bieber My World concert, with graphics inspired by the classic Bieber pose;
  • Tour: A perfect concert memento with featured tour cities; and
  • Web: Imagery from his personal homepage.
