Stronger performance reflects continued effective execution against our strategy
Reported net sales (£6,421 million) and operating profit (£2,065 million) were up 14.5% and 28.0%
respectively, reflecting accelerated organic growth and favourable exchange
Organic growth, across all regions, with 1.8% volume growth and 4.4% net sales growth
Organic operating profit grew 4.4%, in line with top line growth, driven by gross margin improvement,
good progress on productivity offset by implementation costs and the profit on sale of the UB shares
in the prior period
Free cash flow continued to be strong at £1,084 million, increasing by £245 million compared to the
prior period with net cash from operating activities up £230 million to £1,267 million
Basic eps of 60.3 pence. Pre-exceptional eps was 62.0 pence, up 21%, as higher operating profit and
associate income along with favourable exchange more than offset the impact of disposals and a
higher tax rate
Interim dividend up 5% at 23.7 pence per share
