Henkel AG & Co. KGaA

Henkel: With record figures into the 125th business year
Sales up 12.5 percent to 12.8 billion euro
EBIT growth of 10.9 percent to 950 million euro (Part 2 of 4)

    In addition, the devaluation of the Turkish lira will reduce
operating profit (EBIT) by at least 10 million euro.
    
    Henkel expects an upturn in its businesses in the further course
of the year and anticipates a substantial earnings improvement from
operating activities and thus a continuation of the positive earnings
trend which goes back many years.
