PZ Cussons is confident of its full-year results

SOAP and shampoo maker PZ Cussons said it was on track to meet full-year forecasts, even though trading conditions in the UK remain tough.

The firm, owner of the Imperial Leather, Carex and original Source brands, said yesterday its results for the year to 31 May “are anticipated to be in line with expectations.”

PZ Cussons said new products had driven strong growth in the UK, but warned of a “worsening consumer outlook”.
