The Company lowered its guidance for all-in sales and all-in earnings growth to reflect the increased impact from foreign exchange. P&G confirmed its prior outlook for organic sales growth and currency-neutral earnings per share growth.
P&G said it expects to incur one-time charges in the range of $230 million to $280 million after-tax, or $0.08 to $0.10 per share, based on its preliminary assessment of the impact of revaluing certain portions of the local Venezuelan balance sheet at the new exchange rate of 11.4 bolivares fuertes per U.S. dollar.
The Company now expects foreign exchange to reduce sales growth by two percent to three percent, which results in an adjusted guidance range for all-in sales growth of in-line to up two percent versus the prior year. This compares to a prior guidance range of one percent to two percent all-in sales growth.
