The following provides perspective on the company's April - June quarter results by business segment.

Beauty GBU

-- Beauty net sales increased 11 percent during the quarter to $5.0 billion. Net sales were up behind a two percent increase in volume, a two percent pricing impact and a seven percent favorable foreign exchange impact. Cosmetics volume grew high-single digits behind the Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara initiative. Skin Care volume grew mid-single digits behind strong growth in developing regions. Hair Care volume grew low-single digits as strong growth on Head & Shoulders, Rejoice and Nice 'N Easy were partially offset by declines in Professional Hair Care and on Pantene in North America. Net earnings were flat during the quarter at $569 million as higher net sales and a lower tax rate were offset by increased overhead spending and higher commodity costs.

-- Grooming net sales were up 12 percent to $2.1 billion for the quarter. Volume grew three percent and favorable foreign exchange contributed eight percent to net sales growth. Price increases taken across premium shaving systems added two percent to net sales. Product mix had a negative one percent impact on net sales as favorable product mix from growth on Fusion was more than offset by the impact of double-digit growth in developing regions. Volume in Blades & Razors grew low-single digits as double-digit growth in developing regions behind the continued successful geographic expansion of Fusion was partially offset by lower shipments in developed regions. Fusion volume grew over 30 percent globally in the quarter versus the prior year period. Volume for Braun was down low-single digits as strong growth in developing regions was more than off
