Update: Beiersdorf announced its full year profit, showing a rise of 15%, which was boosted by strong Nivea and Eucerin brand sales. Net profit for 2015 was $748.7 million, making sales 3% higher than the year before, when adjusted for currency effects.
The company showed positive sales growth in almost all regions, particularly Latin America, with organic sales expected to grow by 3-4% in 2015.
