Beiersdorf Raises 2012 Targets Again

The company expects full-year growth of “well over” 4 percent.

BERLIN — Beiersdorf AG has raised its sales targets again, saying it anticipates full-year growth of “well over” 4 percent for 2012. 

In a short statement released by the Hamburg-based consumer goods and adhesives maker on Tuesday, its chief executive officer Stefan F. Heidenreich said, “We are satisfied with the way our fiscal year has gone so far.”

In early November, Beiersdorf, which manufactures brands such as Nivea, Eucerin, La Prairie and Tesa, raised its 2012 projections to 3 percent to 4 percent growth. The new guidance applies to both total group and consumer division sales, the company said.
