The Düsseldorf-based maker of Schwarzkopf, Persil and Loctite registered a rise in adjusted operating profit (EBIT) of 2.1 percent. After allowing for one-off gains, one-off charges and restructuring charges, the EBIT amounted to 674 million euros, or $924 million. 

All dollar figures are calculated at average exchange rate for the period.
