Unilever - Strong Growth Despite a Challenging Environment

Feb 04, 2010, 02:39 ET from Unilever Plc

LONDON, February 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The FMCG company Unilever has reported fourth quarter and full year figures for 2009 beating expectations on volume growth, margins and cash flow. Watch the CEO video interview on http://www.cantos.com/company/unilever.

CEO Paul Polman described the results as "good" and added that he was especially pleased that the company's share of the market was starting to grow again right across the board.

He pointed out the focus from here was to deliver consistent volume growth but remarked that the economic climate was still uncertain and that consumer confidence and employment levels were not likely to recover significantly in 2010. In spite of that he expected much of the future growth to come from the burgeoning emerging market where Unilever now conducts half of its business.
