Reckitt Benckiser's first-half results on track to meet goals
8 August 2012 17:37 in Consumer Healthcare News
Reckitt Benckiser has expressed satisfaction with its financial performance in the first half of 2012, after recording like-for-like growth of four percent during the period.
The company's net revenue during the six months totalled 4.67 billion pounds, with profit, income and earnings levels all increasing compared to the first half of 2011.
Its strong performance was driven by excellent results in emerging market areas and high demand for leading brands such as Dettol, Lysol and Finish, while it was also able to increase its brand equity investment.
Reckitt Benckiser expects to meet its growth targets for the full-year period, as its first-half margins were in line with expectations.
Rakesh Kapoor, chief executive officer at Reckitt Benckiser, said: "Six months into our purpose-driven strategy, Reckitt Benckiser has delivered revenue growth well ahead of our market."
In 2011, the company generated full-year sales of 9.46 billion pounds, which was up by 12 percent compared to its 2010 performance.
