Alan Jope: Chief Executive Officer statement














"We have delivered a good quarter against strong comparators, with
underlying sales growth of 2.5%. The combination of our strategic
choices and focus on operational excellence continue to drive
competitive growth. Underlying sales growth is now at 4.4% for the
year to date and we are confident that we will be well within our
multi-year framework of 3-5% for the full year.








Our strategic choices are having a positive impact on our growth
and business momentum

















Priority markets: we have delivered good growth
across our three priority markets of the US, China and India. South
East Asia continues to be impacted by Covid-19, and was the main
source of volume decline in the quarter





















Channel: ecommerce grew 38% and is now 12% of our
sales





















Portfolio: our high-growth new businesses,
Prestige Beauty and Functional Nutrition, each grew double digit
and we completed the acquisition of digitally-native skin care
brand Paula's Choice



















Brands and innovation: our focus on impactful
innovation has led to a step up on measured product superiority and
average innovation project size

























Organisation and culture: our organisational
agility has allowed us to take rapid pricing actions in
response to unprecedented cost
inflation






















Cost inflation remains at strongly elevated levels, and this will
continue into next year. We have and will continue to respond
across our categories and markets, taking appropriate pricing
action and implementing a range of productivity measures to offset
increased costs. We continue to expect that we will deliver in line
with our margin guidance of around flat for the full
year."

Our markets:


The operating
environment across our markets remains volatile, and restrictions
on daily life continue around the world to varying degrees,
impacting channel dynamics, sales mix and consumer
behaviour.









In India as Covid-19 cases reduced and restrictions eased the
operating environment improved. In China normalisation has
continued, however overall the market remains below pre-Covid-19
levels. Markets are growing in Latin America, driven by
price.








North America and Europe markets declined against a high base in
the prior year driven by demand for in-home food and hygiene
products. Conditions across South East Asia continue to be
challenging, with the quarter impacted by lockdown restrictions in
the region.









Unilever overall performance:


Underlying sales growth was 2.5% with price
of 4.1%, which is a step up from the first half of the year as we
take pricing action to offset rising commodity and other input
costs.









Our three priority markets of the US, India and China each grew
strongly. In the US our food solutions, functional nutrition and
Prestige Beauty businesses all contributed to growth, whilst
in-home food and ice cream declined. We are continuing to see a
trend of increased eating away from home and greater offline
shopping. China grew high single digit led by volume with broad
based growth across divisions. India grew double digit as the
country continued to recover from Covid-19 related
impacts.








Latin America grew high single digit with strong price and a small
decline on volume. Price increases have been taken in response to
rising input costs. South East Asian markets were significantly
impacted by rising Covid-19 cases and related restrictions, and
were the main source of overall volume decline. Europe grew, with
price of 2.1%, although volume declined partly due to a strong
prior year comparator in Home Care. Ecommerce grew 38% and is now
12% of our sales.









Prestige Beauty and functional nutrition are delivering good
growth. Underlying sales in functional nutrition grew double digit
in the third quarter with vitamins, minerals and supplements
brand


OLLY


, growing strongly. Prestige Beauty had a strong
quarter growing double digit with the return to stores
continuing.









Turnover increased 4.0%. There was a positive impact of 1.6% from
acquisitions net of disposals and a negative impact of 0.1% from
currency-related items.








We completed the operational separation of our tea business on 1
October 2021. We are focused on the next stage for this business
which is expected to be either an IPO, sale or
partnership.








Beauty & Personal Care




Beauty & Personal Care underlying sales grew 2.6%, with
negative 1.3% from volume and 3.9% from price.









Skin care grew high single digit, with double digit growth from
our


Vaseline


brand, and deodorants grew mid-single digit.
While skin cleansing saw a step up in pricing, underlying sales
declined overall as we lapped significantly increased demand in the
prior year related to Covid-19. Hair care grew low single digit,
with mid-single digit price growth and negative volumes.
Our


Dove


hair therapy innovation in North America,
which applies state-of-the-art skin care ingredients to hair,
continued to perform well. Oral care declined amidst challenging
market conditions in South East Asia. Our Prestige Beauty brands
grew double digit and vegan brand


Hourglass


launched its new customisable, refillable
Curator eyeshadow palettes. We increased pricing in response to
commodity inflation across categories and
regions.













Home Care




Home Care underlying sales grew 1.4%, with negative 3.2% from
volume and 4.8% from price.









Within fabric care, fabric cleaning grew low-single digit, with
mid-single digit underlying price growth and negative volumes.
Growth was driven by South Asia and strong price action in Latin
America. Volume declined in Europe due to a strong prior year
comparator, and in South East Asia as Covid-19 restrictions were
imposed. In Brazil growth was supported by the rollout of our
"tougher on stains, kinder to the planet" plant-based innovation
under the


Omo


brand. Low single digit growth in fabric
enhancers was driven by ongoing market development in South Asia
and our


Comfort


fragrance boosters continued to perform well
in China. We lapped high demand for household cleaners during
the prior year resulting in high single digit decline in home and
hygiene, although we continue to trade ahead of pre-pandemic
levels. We took pricing action across the portfolio in response to
commodity inflation, particularly in Latin America, South Asia and
Turkey.









Foods & Refreshment




Foods & Refreshment underlying sales grew 3.0%, with negative
0.8% from volume and 3.8% from price.









Out of home ice cream grew with Asia and Europe both growing well
as countries re-opened, although ongoing travel restrictions and
poor weather in Europe means turnover has not yet recovered to 2019
levels. In-home ice cream declined as we lapped very strong growth
in the prior period.


Cornetto


grew double digit supported by the launch
of


Cornetto


Rose, the first ever rose shaped creamy ice
cream.














Food solutions grew double digit with China and markets across
Europe and Latin America delivering sales above 2019 levels.
Consumer demand for in-home food remained strong, although sales in
the third quarter were slightly down as we lapped a strong prior
period of growth.


Knorr


and


Hellmann's


both grew mid-single digit supported by
superior product performance and investments in sustainable
packaging.













We have continued to take pricing action across foods and ice cream
in response to commodity inflation.












Tea grew slightly led by pricing in India and Turkey.

Asia/AMET/RUB




Underlying sales grew 2.3% with 4.2% from price and volume decline
of 1.9% heavily impacted by South East Asian markets. India grew
double digit, balanced between volume and price. We have continued
to price in India in the third quarter to counter rising input
costs. In China high single digit volume-led growth was broad based
across divisions, with food service continuing to trade above 2019
levels. In Turkey double digit growth continued with price and
volume both positive. South East Asian markets declined in the
quarter as many Covid-19 restrictions were reimposed following high
case rates. Indonesia continues to be a challenging market with
strong competition.








The Americas




Underlying sales growth in North America was 2.0% with negative
0.9% from volume and 2.9% from price. As we lapped a period of very
high demand for in-home food and hygiene products in the prior
year, volumes declined slightly. Our Prestige Beauty and food
solutions businesses each grew double digit. We took pricing action
in response to commodity inflation.








Latin America grew 8.7% with positive pricing of 9.1%, and a slight
volume decline of 0.4%. In response to high commodity inflation
combined with currency devaluation, we delivered double digit
underlying price growth in Brazil and volume declined. Mexico and
Argentina grew both price and volume.








Europe




Underlying sales grew 0.3% with price of 2.1% and volume declined
1.8%. Pricing actions are being taken in countries across Europe.
Volume decline was led by Home Care which was lapping high single
digit growth in the third quarter of 2020. Italy grew with a good
performance in ice cream after a decline in the prior year and the
Netherlands also grew, with foods and Home Care delivering
mid-single digit growth. The UK declined low single digit as we
lapped strong growth in the third quarter of 2020, particularly in
Foods & Refreshment. Germany declined mid-single digit, with a
slow ice cream quarter due to poor weather and a declining Beauty
& Personal Care market.


















COMPETITION INVESTIGATIONS










As previously disclosed, Unilever is involved in a number of
ongoing investigations and cases by national competition
authorities, including those within Italy, France, Greece, South
Africa and Turkey. These proceedings and investigations are at
various stages and concern a variety of product markets. Where
appropriate, provisions are made and contingent liabilities
disclosed in relation to such matters.








Ongoing compliance with competition laws is of key importance to
Unilever. It is Unilever's policy to co-operate fully with
competition authorities whenever questions or issues arise. In
addition the Group continues to reinforce and enhance its internal
competition law training and compliance programme on an ongoing
basis.

Turnover growth is made up of distinct individual growth components
namely underlying sales, currency impact, acquisitions and
disposals. Turnover growth is arrived at by multiplying these
individual components on a compounded basis as there is a currency
impact on each of the other components. Accordingly, turnover
growth is more than just the sum of the individual
components.

.











In our financial reporting we use certain measures that are not
defined by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) such as
IFRS. We believe this information, along with comparable GAAP
measurements, is useful to investors because it provides a basis
for measuring our operating performance, and our ability to retire
debt and invest in new business opportunities. Our management uses
these financial measures, along with the most directly comparable
GAAP financial measures, in evaluating our operating performance
and value creation. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be
considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial
information presented in compliance with GAAP. Wherever appropriate
and practical, we provide reconciliations to relevant GAAP
measures. The non-GAAP measures used in this announcement are
underlying sales growth, underlying volume growth and underlying
price growth (see below).








Underlying sales growth (USG)




Underlying sales growth (USG) refers to the increase in turnover
for the period, excluding any change in turnover resulting from
acquisitions, disposals, changes in currency and price growth in
excess of 26% in hyperinflationary economies. Inflation of 26% per
year compounded over three years is one of the key indicators
within IAS 29 to assess whether an economy is deemed to be
hyperinflationary. We believe this measure provides valuable
additional information on the underlying sales performance of the
business and is a key measure used internally. The impact of
acquisitions and disposals is excluded from USG for a period of 12
calendar months from the applicable closing date. Turnover from
acquired brands that are launched in countries where they were not
previously sold is included in USG as such turnover is more
attributable to our existing sales and distribution network than
the acquisition itself. The reconciliation of changes in the GAAP
measure turnover to USG is provided on pages 5 and 6.








Underlying price growth (UPG)




Underlying price growth (UPG) is part of USG and means, for the
applicable period, the increase in turnover attributable to changes
in prices during the period. UPG therefore excludes the impact to
USG due to (i) the volume of products sold; and (ii) the
composition of products sold during the period. In determining
changes in price we exclude the impact of price growth in excess of
26% per year in hyperinflationary economies as explained in USG
above. The measures and the related turnover GAAP measure are set
out on pages 5 and 6.








Underlying volume growth (UVG)




Underlying volume growth (UVG) is part of USG and means, for the
applicable period, the increase in turnover in such period
calculated as the sum of (i) the increase in turnover attributable
to the volume of products sold; and (ii) the increase in turnover
attributable to the composition of products sold during such
period. UVG therefore excludes any impact on USG due to changes in
prices. The measures and the related turnover GAAP measure are set
out on pages 5 and 6.

current Covid-19 pandemic. These forward-looking statements speak
only as of the date of this document. Except as required by any
applicable law or regulation, the Group expressly disclaims any
obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or
revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to
