ITEM 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On May 2, 2019, Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (the Company) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the Original Form 8-K) with a press release announcing its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, and providing additional information. The Company is amending the Original Form 8-K to correct information included under the headline FLAWLESS Acquisition in the press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to the Original Form 8-K. The impact of FLAWLESS on the Companys full year 2019 results compared to 2018 is expected to be: Net Sales (+200 bps), Gross Margin (+20 bps), Marketing (-10 bps), and SG&A (+50 bps), rather than SG&A (-50 bps) as reported in the press release. There are no other changes to the press release or to the Original Form 8-K.
This amendment to the Original Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements with respect to the impact of the FLAWLES Acquisition. These statements are based on assumptions that the Company believes are reasonable but may prove to be incorrect, and reflect the current intentions, plans, expectations and beliefs of the Company. In addition, these statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside the Companys control and could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause such differences include, without limitation, the integration of the FLAWLESS business with the Company, and the other factors discussed in Risk Factors in the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 and subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
