PG is benefiting from ongoing initiatives to improve productivity. Also, it remains focused on product improvement as well as packaging and marketing initiatives, which drive top and bottom lines. As well, the company is on track with its cost-saving plans.
Procter & Gamble focuses on improving its
product portfolio through initiatives, which enable it to concentrate on its
fast-growing businesses. For this, the company relies on its strategy of
acquiring complementary businesses. It also follows a systematic divestiture plan
to streamline its portfolio. It has acquired a private company; This is L., that produces period
products with natural ingredients. This will aid in expanding its naturals
product range, which is a key focus area for most day-to-day consumer product
companies at present.
Some other recent acquisitions include the beauty brand, First Aid Beauty, the consumer health business of Germany-based Merck KGaA and Walker & Company Brands, all in 2018. These buyouts should bolster the company’s product portfolio in various categories. Simultaneously, it divested several assets over the years as part of the portfolio-reshaping plan.
These driving factors helped Procter & Gamble deliver robust first-quarter fiscal 2020 results, wherein its earnings and sales beat estimates for the fifth straight time. Both the top and bottom lines grew year over year. Strong organic sales growth, backed by higher shipment volume and favorable price/mix, boosted the top line.
All of the company’s segments contributed to organic sales growth.
YOU NEED TO BE IN TO PROFIT!
As a result of the strong recent quarter, P&G on Oct. 22 raised its outlook for all-in sales growth for fiscal 2020, which will run through June. In addition, core EPS growth of 5% to 10% is now projected, up from the previous guidance of 4% to 9%.
“In terms of predicting any kind of consumer acceleration or consumer slowdown, we aren’t in that business,” Moeller said during a conference call with market analysts. “There are many things that can affect consumer confidence that are things we wouldn’t even have the ability to anticipate today – certain geopolitical events, certain political developments within the country, et cetera. So, your guess is as good as ours in terms of what market growth does going forward.”
However, “we have seen no signs of weakness,” said Moeller, who in addition to being CFO is chief operating officer and vice chairman of P&G.
Regardless, P&G is “better positioned today for several reasons to deal with a downturn than we were, for example, in 2007-2008,” he said, referring to the Great Recession.
Also, P&G is much better positioned from a brand advantage standpoint, which Moeller described as “the products performing at noticeable levels of superiority in terms of meeting very important consumer needs and desires.”
As well, P&G has worked to broaden the availability of products at different price points and different pack sizes.
