Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC said on Thursday that its performance since July 27--when it published first-half results--has been in line with management expectations.
The London-listed consumer-goods company, which houses Dettol, Harpic and Durex among its brands, said that it continues to be confident in delivering like-for=like revenue growth of between 0% to 2% for 2021. It added that it expects adjusted operating profit margins of between 22.7% and 23.2% for the year.
"The disposal of IFCN China was completed on 9 September and, as previously stated, our guidance excludes the contribution of this business for the entirety of the year," the company said.
