Financial report summary

Risks
  • Increasing dependence on key retailers in Developed Markets and the emergence of new sales channels may adversely affect our business.
  • Intense competition for sales of our products, changes in consumer purchasing patterns and the inability to innovate or market our products effectively could have an adverse effect on our financial results.
  • Our international operations are subject to foreign market risks, including changes in foreign currency exchange rates, currency restrictions and political, social and economic instability, which may adversely affect our financial results.
  • Damage to the reputation of Kimberly-Clark or to one or more of our brands could adversely affect our business.
  • If our information technology systems suffer interruptions, failures or breaches, or we fail to comply with data privacy or similar regulations, our business operations could be disrupted and we could face financial and reputational damage.
  • Significant increases in prices for raw materials, energy, transportation or other necessary supplies or services, without corresponding increases in our selling prices, could adversely affect our financial results.
  • There is no guarantee that our ongoing efforts to reduce costs will be successful.
  • Government regulations and enforcement, and potential litigation, could have an adverse effect on our financial results.
  • New or revised tax regulations could have an adverse effect on our financial results.
  • We may divest or acquire product lines or businesses, which could impact our results.
Management Discussion
  • •Net sales of $5.0 billion increased 8 percent compared to the year-ago period, including organic sales growth of 11 percent. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates reduced sales by 2 percent and business exits in conjunction with the 2018 Global Restructuring Program reduced sales slightly.
  • •Operating profit was $904 in 2020 and $655 in 2019. Net Income Attributable to Kimberly-Clark Corporation was $660 in 2020 compared to $454 in 2019, and diluted earnings per share were $1.92 in 2020 compared to $1.31 in 2019. Results in 2020 and 2019 include charges related to the 2018 Global Restructuring Program.
  • Over the past few months, we have seen the profound impact that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on human health, the global economy and society at large. Kimberly-Clark has been actively addressing the COVID-19 situation and its
