Stocks in this article: PG

The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) hosts its 2012 Analyst Meeting today in Cincinnati, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time. Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer Bob McDonald and members of the Company’s executive management team will provide a review of P&G’s recent results, fiscal year outlook and key growth and productivity improvement strategies.

Mr. McDonald will discuss P&G’s continued efforts to maintain momentum in developing markets, strengthen its core developed market business, build a strong innovation pipeline, and aggressively drive cost savings and productivity improvements. Commenting on these priorities at P&G’s recent annual shareholders meeting, McDonald said, “Our plan is decisive, simple and focused – grow our core and win with innovation fueled by productivity. We’re confident that our growth and productivity strategies will enable P&G to generate superior levels of shareholder return in both the short- and long-term.”

Financial Guidance and Share Repurchase Outlook

P&G will confirm its net sales, organic sales, all-in earnings per share and core earnings per share guidance for both the October – December quarter and fiscal year 2013. The Company issued its most recent, detailed guidance update on October 25, 2012, which is summarized in the attached exhibit.

P&G will increase its expected share repurchase outlook to $4 billion to $6 billion from its previous forecast of $4 billion. The Company will note that if cash results remain ahead of plan, as they were in its fiscal first quarter, there is an upside potential of $6 billion in share repurchase for the fiscal year.

Innovation Pipeline

P&G will discuss its portfolio of recent and near-term innovations, including Tide PODS, Downy Unstopables, ZzzQuil, Cascade Platinum, Crest Pro-Health for Life, Fusion and Mach3 Sensitive, Olay Fresh Effects, Pantene Expert Collection, Vidal Sassoon Pro Series, Illumina Color from Wella Professional and several new fine fragrance innovations on the Gucci, Hugo Boss and Dolce & Gabbana brands. In addition, the Company will discuss its efforts to strengthen its pipeline of discontinuous innovations – innovations that obsolete current products and create new categories and new brands.
