LONDON — Unilever, parent of brands including Dove, Lux, and Vaseline, reported first-quarter sales sank 6.3 percent to 11.4 billion euros, or $15.62 billion, due to negative currency effects.
Ignoring currency, sales in the three months to March 31 were up 3.6 percent, with emerging markets growing 6.6 percent, buoyed by categories such as home care, personal care, and refreshment. Dollar figures have been converted at average exchange rates for the three months.
