TOKYO — Kao Corp. said Wednesday that its nine-month net profit fell slightly on costs related to a recent product recall at its Kanebo unit but operating profit and sales grew for the period.
Kao said net profit for the nine months ended Sept. 30 fell 0.5 percent to 39.55 billion yen, or $409.76 million at average exchange rates for the period, compared with restated results for the same period a year earlier. The company recently changed its fiscal year end from March 31 to December 31.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
