did gillette lose sales

The news came from P&G CFO Jon Moeller in a conference presentation to financial analysts. Gillette’s parent company, Proctor & Gamble, says it will reduce the price of some of its shave products by up to 20%.

Price hikes contributed 3 percentage points to organic sales growth, a closely watched metric which excludes items like acquisitions, divestitures and currency effects. For the same period last year, P&G’s net income was $1.89 billion, or 72 cents per share. "P&G reported a net loss of about $5.24 billion – or $2.12 per share – for the quarter ended June 30, due to an $8 billion non-cash writedown of Gillette,” Reuters announced.

“Is this the best a man can get?” the commercial asked. REUTERS/John Sommers II/File Photo Industry experts interpreted the commercial, which debuted in January, as a bid by Gillette to attract more female consumers.Gillette debuted another commercial in May showing a transgender male adolescent learning how to shave.Media figures including Piers Morgan, Gov. Gillette Loses $8 Billion as Sales Drop Following Woke Commercials 44,076 Gillette/YouTube The charge was also driven by more competition over the past three years and a shrinking market for blades and razors as consumers in developed markets shave less frequently. The ad not only created a firestorm of controversy online, but it also helped cost the company billions of dollars. Net sales in the grooming business, which includes Gillette, have declined in 11 out of the last 12 quarters. P&G paid $57 billion in 2005 for Gillette, the world’s No.1 shaving brand that is more than a century old. Organic sales for all 10 of P&G’s global categories grew. The spot depicted scenes of bullying, sexual harassment, and mansplaining. Gillette has been forced to drop the price of its razors by about 15% over the past few years and is on the verge of losing master brand status. Gillette’s share of the U.S. men’s razors and blades market slipped in 2018 while that of Harry’s and Unilever grew, Euromonitor data showed. The company’s net sales rose 3.6% to $17.09 billion in the fourth quarter, beating analysts’ average estimate of $16.86 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
P&G has signaled to analysts for some time that it might write down Gillette, given the market’s issues; the charge is just an accounting expression of what we knew was happening to the business, Bernstein analyst Ali Dibadj said. Gillette experienced a whopping $8 billion write-down during its most recent quarter, the latest setback for the maker of razors and other personal grooming supplies.Parent company Procter & Gamble (P&G) blamed the loss on currency fluctuations as well as the continued “market contraction” of blades and razors, primarily in developed markets as men continue to grow out their facial hair.Gillette helped to drag P&G into the red for the fiscal fourth quarter, with a net loss of $5.24 billion for the consumer goods giant, compared to net income of $1.89 billion a year ago.Gillette generated heated social media pushback earlier this year after it debuted a series of commercials that While it has traditionally marketed its razors to men — “the best a man can get” — Gillette has been trying to reach new demographics in a bid to revive a flagging business that has seen a decline in demand for razors and blades.One such effort was a Gillette commercial spotlighting masculinity and the #MeToo movement.

But in the 2010s technology altered the way consumers purchased razors, and relaxed social norms prompted men to shave less often, according to a Euromonitor report.

Organic sales in P&G’s beauty business rose 8%, boosted by demand for its super-premium SK-II brand and Olay skin care products. “Expectations were creeping higher into the print, but P&G far exceeded even the most optimistic expectations,” Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog said, adding that P&G’s organic sales growth of 7% was its strongest in 13 years. Gillette's social justice moral preening just cost them $8 billion. Cincinnati-based P&G, which operates in 80 countries, sells Gillette razors, gels and foams worldwide and said the writedown was due primarily to currency fluctuations - enduring strength in the U.S. economy in recent years has strengthened the dollar. Gillette has seen consumer perceptions, including the key sales metric consideration, tumble in the UK in the wake of its ‘#metoo’ ad, despite the film not actually being aimed at the UK market. That would be $5.24 billion to be exact.
