ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Familiarity breeds ... profit
A single word can sum up the core of what Procter & Gamble (P&G) is all about—brands. Think of some of the most well-known household products out there: Tide, Crest, Gillette, Pantene, Pampers, Olay, Bounty, Oral B, Bounty Febreeze, Old Spice, Always, PuR. The list could go on, and on, and on, until we’d covered every one of the almost 300 brands under the P&G umbrella. Some of them (Crisco, Crest, Tide) are P&G inventions while others (Charmin, Gillette, Olay) have been acquired over the course of more than a century and a half of business. Of that number, an incredible 23 of P&G’s brands produce around $1 billion each per year in revenue. Waiting to bump the billion-dollar cadre ever higher, however, are some 20 further brands that each rake in more than $500 million annually and are being primed to make the push across the Rubicon. All of this is ample evidence, if any were required of a firm that has grown its net sales to $79 billion in 2009, that P&G is, in its own words (and capitalization), “Designed to Lead.” Indeed, P&G thrives on loyal customers and strives to put out products that merit devotion in 180 countries the world over. It is ranked No. 20 on the Fortune 500 in 2009 and is indexed in both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
