Helen Of Troy Reports Net Sales Revenue Rose Slightly In 4Q Of FY 2016

April 28, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Helen of Troy reported net sales revenue rose 2.1 percent to $385.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, compared with the same quarter of the previous year. Gross profit margin decreased 1.7 percentage points to 42.0 percent, compared with 43.7 percent for the same period in the previous year. According to the company, the decrease in consolidated gross profit margin was mainly due to a non-cash impairment charge of $9.1 million recorded to reflect the company's inventory in Venezuela. Operating income declined from $49 million for the same period in the previous year to this year's $16 million, due to Venezuelan currency re-measurement charges of $18.7 million; impact of a $17.8 million patent litigation charge; negative impact of foreign currency fluctuations; and a non-cash impairment charge of $3 million related to a trademark in the beauty business.

Procter & Gamble's Latest $10-Billion Cost-Cutting Move Fails To Impress Investors

April 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Co.’s chief executive officer David Taylor said his company plans to implement another $10-billion cost-cutting program during the next five years.

Wall Street investors and analysts, however, are expressing doubts about the latest cost-cutting plan of the company. P&G’s failure to provide details about the plan is part of the reasons for the company’s failure to fully convince investors about its ability to implement more cost-cutting moves.
