FRANKFURT Aug 12 German consumer group Henkel's
Chief Executive Kasper Rorsted expects to start
feeling the impact of the Russia-Ukraine crisis in the second
half of the year.
"In the first half we didn't see a slowdown in Russia,
surprisingly. But we do expect a slowdown now," he told Reuters
Insider TV in an interview after Henkel reported quarterly
financial results on Tuesday.
But he said the company's 2014 outlook for high single-digit
percentage growth in adjusted earnings per preferred share was
not at risk due to the weaker prospects in eastern Europe.
