Unilever Pakistan Limited

Financial Results for the period January - September 2012

Turnover growth improved from 12% at the half year to 15% for the nine months. A 195 bps higher gross margin was achieved through better cost absorption and improved sales mix. Advertising and promotion spend was lower than the corresponding period last year in which we introduced five new brands and a number of fresh formats. Higher sales, improved mix from a broader portfolio and lower advertising expenditure resulted in Earnings Per Share growth of 49% in the nine months.
