我想,我大概腦袋一踫上枕頭就睡著了——就像迷迷糊糊地沉進一股黑 黝黝的深沉的潮水,沉啊,沉啊,一直深深地沉入平時永遠無法探到的自我 解脫的底層。然後,過了很久,才開始做了個夢。這個夢也不知道是怎麼開 頭的。我只記得,我又站在一個房間里,我想,是康多爾的候診室吧,突然 間又開始傳來這可怕的聲音,幾天來這木頭的聲音一直在我太陽穴里直敲, 這陣有節奏的拐杖的聲音,這可怕的篤、篤、篤、篤聲。起先這聲音很遠, 仿佛是從大街上傳來,然後近了一些,篤、篤、篤、篤,現在已經很近了, 而且來勢很猛,篤,篤、篤、篤,最後近得可怕,就打在門上,我從夢中怵 然驚醒,直跳起來。 身體病弱,卻是個烈性女子。她明確表示,僅僅為了她傾心相愛的人,她才 願意接受治療。倘若霍夫米勒並不愛她,她覺得生不如死,寧可立即結束生 命,了此殘生。霍夫米勒明知艾迪特並無痊愈的希望,如果他出于俠義精神 繼續對她表示同情,就得承擔責任,作出犧牲,不顧伙伴和家人的議論訕笑, 接受她的愛情,同意這門婚事。倘若拒不接受她的愛情就不啻宣判她的死刑。 艾迪特的生死取決于霍夫米勒向她表示的同情究屬何種性質。由此便導出全 書的悲劇結尾。插妹妹a片96 他說這番話的聲音完全和過去不一樣,仿佛是個成年人的聲音似的。眼不用播放器的成人片在线观看 個和我談過話的人。明天他將是惟一的一個知道全部真情的人。我挺直身子, 把兩個鞋後跟使勁一並,抬起肩膀,向後轉。 這句話不由自主地刺進了我的心里。怎麼辦,要是康多爾中午沒回家? 或者回家大晚,來不及趕去乘下午那趟火車?那麼一切豈不全部白費!那她 就在那兒等了又等。露台上那個駭人的景象立刻又像閃電似的在我腦子里出 現︰她雙手緊緊地抓住欄桿,向下凝望,接著她已經俯身向著深淵!我的天 啊,她必須及時知道我是多麼悔恨我的背叛行為!趁她還沒有絕望、在那可 怕的事情說不定會發生之前,她必須及時知道我的悔恨!最好我在下一站就 給她去個電報,用幾句話堅定她的信心,以防康多爾還沒有通知她。啪啪啪 我推門進去,從大門口我就看見,大家還都坐在我們的老位置上,費倫 茨、約茨西、施泰因許貝伯爵、團隊軍醫,這幫人一個下拉。不過,為什麼 約茨西抬起頭來瞪著我,顯出深感意外的神情,為什麼他悄悄地用胳臂時捅 了一下他旁邊那人,為什麼大家都這樣目光專注地盯著我看?為什麼驟然間 談話戛然而止?剛才他們不是還在激烈討論,七嘴八舌,嚷得很歡,連我在 門口都听見了他們的爭吵。可是現在,他們一看見我,都默不作聲地坐在那 兒,不知怎地還顯出一副尷尬的樣子。一定發生什麼事情了。

Today, Unilever announced its results for the first half of 2019, which show underlying sales growth of 3.3%, led by our emerging market business which grew 6.2%.

  • Underlying sales grew 3.3% with volume 1.2% and price 2.1%
  • Emerging markets underlying sales growth 6.2% with volume 2.5% and price 3.6%
  • Turnover decreased 0.9% driven by the sale of our spreads business, partially offset by a 1.1% currency benefit
  • Underlying operating margin increased 50bps with 30bps from gross margin
  • Operating margin increased by 40bps
  • Underlying earnings per share increased 5.0%, with constant EPS up 3.0%

Commenting on the results, CEO Alan Jope says: “We have delivered consistent growth within our guided range for 2019, led by our emerging markets. Accelerating growth remains our top priority and we continue to evolve our portfolio and seek out fast growth channel and geographical opportunities, as well as address those performance hotspots where growth is falling short of our aspirations.

“For the full year, we continue to expect underlying sales growth to be in the lower half of our multi-year 3-5% range, an improvement in underlying operating margin that keeps us on track for the 2020 target and another year of strong free cash flow. Our sustainable business model and portfolio of purpose-led brands are key to delivering superior long-term financial performance.”

Our markets

Growth in our markets was mixed. Market growth in Europe and North America was held back by the impact of weather on ice cream sales. In the emerging markets we continued to see good momentum particularly in China and South East Asia. India saw strong market growth, though it moderated, as expected. Argentina remains hyperinflationary and high levels of pricing continue to weigh on consumer demand.

Unilever overall performance

Underlying sales grew 3.3% with 1.2% from volume and 2.1% from price. Emerging markets grew 6.2%, led by Asia/AMET/RUB, which saw broad-based geographic growth, whilst developed markets were weaker.

In the second quarter, we estimate the 2018 truckers’ strike in Brazil increased USG by 100bps. Second quarter growth was suppressed by around 50bps due to weak ice cream performance; a result of poorer weather, particularly in Europe following two years of very strong summers. 80bps of Argentina price growth in the quarter was excluded from USG due to hyperinflationary status.

Turnover in the first half decreased 0.9% driven by the sale of the spreads business, partially offset by a currency benefit of 1.1%.

Underlying operating margin improved by 50bps. Gross margin was up 30bps, helped by efficiencies from our 5S programme. Overheads had an adverse impact on underlying operating margin of 10bps. Our change programmes have helped to address stranded costs following the disposal of spreads and we continue to invest in the ongoing digital transformation of our business. Brand and marketing investment decreased compared to the prior year, as we continued to deliver zero-based budgeting savings ahead of target, with an increased focus on digital spend. More than two thirds of savings have been reinvested, largely behind innovations and new brand launches.

Beauty & Personal Care

Underlying sales in our Beauty & Personal Care division grew 3.3%.

Deodorants performed well, supported by our Rexona Clinical and Dove Zero aluminium ranges, alongside the extension of Love, Beauty & Planet. New formats continued to drive sales in skin cleansing, including the incremental launch of Dove bath bombs as well as Dove foaming handwash. Good performance in skin care was supported by on-trend innovations including Pond’s InstaBright Glow cream. Hair care saw only modest growth for the first half, with a challenging second quarter particularly in the US. Oral care returned to growth in the second quarter, helped by innovations such as Closeup natural whitening toothpaste and Signal White Now. Our prestige brands, including Dermalogica, Hourglass and REN, saw double digit growth overall, and we announced the acquisitions of Garancia and Tatcha, which are not yet included in USG.

Underlying operating margin in Beauty & Personal Care increased by 100bps, driven by efficiency programmes in brand and marketing investment.

Home Care

Underlying sales in our Home Care division grew 7.4%.

Fabric solutions performed strongly, benefiting from premiumisation and the execution of our strategy to move consumers into products with additional consumer benefits, including Omo Perfect Wash in Brazil. China saw good performance from the relaunch of Omo while in India Surf excel continued to grow double digit. Seventh Generation continues to be rolled out in Europe and North Asia, building on the naturals trend. Home and hygiene grew well, supported by double digit growth from Sunlight, and we launched innovations such as the Cif Cleaner Choices range with natural cleaning ingredients. In Indonesia we used our Home Care brands to run the mosque cleaning programme during Ramadan, an example of purpose-led growth. Good growth in fabric sensations was supported by the launch of a redesigned Comfort core range, focusing on clothes care, as well as a natural variants range. The life essentials category was flat.

Underlying operating margin in Home Care increased by 120bps, with improvements in gross margin, as well as efficiencies in brand and marketing investment and overheads.

Foods & Refreshment

Underlying sales in our Food & Refreshment division grew 1.3%.

In tea, sales declined with volumes impacted by weak consumer demand in developed markets. This was partially offset by black tea in emerging markets and our fruit, herbal and green tea ranges, including Pukka’s premium herbal offering. Sales in dressings were flat with volumes slightly down as competitive intensity remained high. Despite poorer weather in the second quarter compared to the previous two years, ice cream grew slightly over the half. We saw good ice cream performance in Asia/AMET/RUB and from innovations such as Magnum White Chocolate and Cookies. Savoury performance was helped by the launch of new snack pot variants meeting the trend towards convenience. The introduction of Hellmann’s Burger and Spicy Dipping sauces continue to broaden the brand beyond core mayonnaise, and Sir Kensington’s performed well.

Underlying operating margin in Foods & Refreshment decreased by 40bps, as a result of an adverse impact on overheads related to the disposal of our spreads business.
