Kimberly-Clark Backs Outlook, Raises Cost-Cut Goal

Monday, 22 Mar 2010 09:02 AM

The maker of Kleenex and Huggies reiterated its full-year adjusted profit forecast and expects to save more money through cost-cutting than initially anticipated.

Kimberly-Clark Corp. says it still sees 2010 adjusted earnings between $4.80 and $5 per share. Analysts predict a profit of $4.87 per share.

The consumer products maker also says its cost reduction program will likely result in savings of $400 million to $450 million for 2008 through 2010. It previously anticipated savings of $350 million to $450 million.

Long term, Kimberly-Clark, based in Dallas, expects earnings-per-share growth in the mid- to high-single digits through 2015 and a sales increase of 3 percent to 5 percent.
