Celebrating 170 Years of Growth
Lafley closed the meeting by telling shareholders that P&G is celebrating its 170th anniversary later this month. There are only three other companies among the FORTUNE 50 that have been in business as long as P&G. "It's a pretty remarkable track record," said Lafley. "The one factor above all others that has contributed to our company's long heritage of growth is the power of P&G's purpose -- to improve the lives of the world's consumers. It is this focus that will drive our growth for the next 170 years and beyond."
