External Business Partners,
Last week, P&G released earnings for the first quarter of the year, and I am proud to say we are off to a very strong start to the year! The results are a testament of our integrated strategy – a portfolio of high-performance Brand; Superiority in products, packages, consumer communication, retail execution and value; Productivity; Constructive disruption and a more Agile, Accountable and Empowered organization. Importantly, these results were possible thanks to your commitment to P&G’s business and operations. You enabled P&G to be a Force for Good and a Force for Growth by Protecting our Employees, Serving Consumers with health and hygiene products, and Supporting Communities. A big and heartfelt thank you.
I encourage you to review our press release for a detailed summary of our performance for the 1st quarter of FY20/21.
In order to maintain and accelerate the momentum of Q1 there are a few things I would like to draw your attention to:
I am energized by our Q1 results and FY guidance! I hope you share my enthusiasm for what we were able to do together while recognizing that we still have work to do and we will continue to face new challenges. Thanks for everything you have done and your continuous commitment to our business.
In closing, I ask you to protect each other. Be safe and healthy.
