While we continue to make steady progress on the strategic transformation of the company – which focuses P&G on about a dozen core categories and 70 to 80 brands, on leading brand growth, on accelerating meaningful product innovation and increasing productivity savings – the considerable business portfolio, product innovation, and productivity progress was not enough to overcome foreign exchange.”
