C&D personal care sales up

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Net sales in the firm's personal care segment rose 10.1% in first quarter 2009 (ended March 27), to $154 mil., largely on the entry of new products, Church & Dwight says in a May 5 earnings call. Personal care sales growth was slowed by the timing of new product launches, including SpinBrush Sonic toothbrushes and two Baby Orajel oral care products. Chairman and CEO James Craigie has said C&D is actively seeking personal care brand acquisitions (1"The Rose Sheet" Feb. 9, 2009, p. 6). Net revenues grew 5.1% to $580.9 mil. over the year-ago period and net income for the Princeton, N.J.-based consumer products company increased 11.4% to $62.6 mil. C&D estimates its full-year EPS at $3.30-$3.35, a 15% to 17% increase over fiscal 2008 results
