P&G Reports Fourth Quarter EPS of $0.92 and Operating Profit Growth of 13%, Behind Balanced 5% Organic Sales and Volume Growth
Date:8/5/2008

reased behind two percent volume growth and six percent of favorable foreign exchange. Favorable product mix had a one percent impact on net sales primarily due to higher growth in Skin Care. Volume in Skin Care was up mid- single digits driven by growth on Olay behind the Definity and Regenerist initiatives. Prestige Fragrances volume was up low-single digits and organic volume was up high-single digits behind new product launches on Dolce & Gabbana and Hugo Boss. 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, Herbal Essences and on Pantene in North America. Net earnings in Beauty increased five percent to $2.7 billion in 2008 as sales growth and a lower tax rate more than offset a commodity cost driven decline in gross margin.

-- Grooming net sales increased 11 percent to $8.3 billion in 2008. Net sales were up behind five percent volume growth, a seven percent favorable foreign exchange impact and a two percent positive pricing impact. Product mix had a negative three percent impact on net sales as positive product mix from growth on the premium-priced Fusion brand was more than offset by the impact of disproportionate growth in developing regions. Blades & Razors volume increased high-single digits behind double-digit growth in developing regions driven primarily by Fusion geographic expansion and the Prestobarba3 launch in Latin America. In developed regions, Blades & Razors volume was down low-single digits as strong growth on Fusion was more than offset by lower shipments on legacy systems. Fusion delivered more than $1 billion in net sales in 2008, making it the company's 24th billion-dollar brand and the fastest ever to reach this milestone. Braun volume was down mid-single digits primarily due to supply constraints at a contract manufacturer, the announced exit of certain home appliance businesses and the divestiture of the thermomete
