BERLIN — Henkel AG saw its first-quarter adjusted net income for the period advance 13 percent to 427 million euros, or $563.9 million, with growth in the firm's laundry/home care and beauty care divisions countering a slightly diminished performance by its adhesives sector.
The Düsseldorf-based company saw its adjusted operating profit for the quarter grow 8.9 percent to 600 million euros, or $792.4 million. The adjusted figure accounts for one-time charges/gains, and restructuring charges.
All dollar figures are calculated at average exchange rates for the three month period ended March 31.
