Research Report Kimberly Ross, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Avon Products is pleased to announce that the company has achieved increased financial flexibility. This was managed through its refinancing efforts which have improved their balance sheet. Avon has entered into a new four-year $1 billion unsecured Revolving Credit Facility Agreement, has issued $1.5 billion of unsecured notes generating net proceeds of $1.48 billion with maturities of 3,7,10 and 30 years, and repaying $1.9 billion of debt. The company expects interest expense in 2013 to increase approximately 10% as compared to 2012 as it extended its maturity profile and decreased reliance on floating rate debt.

Research Report "On the road with ON-Q: Post-Operative Pain Education Bus Tour", a nationwide campaign aimed at educating clinicians, administrators and other healthcare professionals about the importance of a post-operative pain management program has been initialized by I-Flow, a Kimberly-Clark Health Care Company. "For care providers, acute surgical pain management is an increasingly important issue, as the negative effects of powerful narcotics have become further realized," said Chris Barys, General Manager, I-Flow. "The goal of the mobile classroom is to give clinicians the education and resources they need to make the most optimal pain management decisions post-surgery, maintaining the patient's comfort and safety as the top priority." Powerful narcotics used to be the treatment of choice when it comes to post-surgical pain. This caused undesirable side-effects such as grogginess, immunosuppression, nausea and vomiting as well as the risk of addiction. By reducing the use of narcotics, with a pain pump, patients are more likely to experience better pain management and faster recovery times - patients typically go home an average of 1.1 days sooner than when treated with narcotics alone and hospitals realize additional cost savings.

Research Report Despite a slight decrease in net sales for 2012 Q4, Blyth has still managed to position itself for profitable growth. The sale of Sterno and its new, long-term understanding with ViSalus Founders to penetrate markets outside the U.S. has put the company in an advantage. "ViSalus's fourth quarter sales, at $127 million, represented 29% year-over-year sales growth," said Robert B. Goergen, Chairman of the Board and CEO for Blyth. "Moreover, its full year sales were $624 million versus $230 million in 2011. That ViSalus achieved such significant market penetration highlights the opportunity in opening additional markets outside of North America, beginning in 2013, following the lead of many global health and wellness competitors," he added. The company will also continue to invest in Candles & Home Décor and Catalog & Internet businesses in order to attain long-term sales and earnings growth.

Research Report The Estee Lauded Companies has been awarded the Point Inspiration Award by the Point Foundation - the nation's largest scholarship-granting organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGTBQ) students. "I'm deeply honored to accept the Point Inspiration Award on behalf of The Estee Lauder Companies," said Peter Lichtenthal, President, Bumble and bumble and Smashbox. "The Estee Lauder Companies has long fostered a culture of inclusion and diversity. We have supported many LGBTQ causes over the years, and our belief in Point Foundation, and the transformative help it provides to deserving scholars, is an important example of this commitment. Point provides LGBTQ scholars not only with funding, but with crucial mentoring services that work to ensure the scholar's success. I have found working with Point Foundation highly rewarding, first as co-chair of some of Point's 2012 events and recently as mentor to a Point Scholar."
