First Look: P&G’s 2019 Annual Report

Released today as an online interactive experience, P&G’s 2019 Annual Report tells the story of how, as previously announced, we achieved the following during fiscal year 2019:

P&G built sales, market share and profit margin momentum throughout fiscal 2019, finishing the year with the strongest organic sales growth in over a decade.

We continued our unparalleled track record of cash returned to shareowners, returning $12.5 billion of cash through a combination of share repurchases and dividends, increasing the dividend for the 63rd consecutive year, and paying a dividend for 129 consecutive years.

We continued to drive our focus on specific choices that win the hearts of shoppers—supported by a strong commitment to corporate citizenship, which is woven into the everyday rhythm of our business.

P&G Citizenship areas

We could not have achieved this without the roughly 97,000 P&G employees around the world who keep these 5 simple strategies central to their everyday work:

  1. Focus on a portfolio of 10 categories comprised of daily-use products where performance drives brand choice.
