The British manufacturer of household chemicals and medical products, Reckitt Benckiser, following the results of 2018, reported on the fall of net profit by 65%, or 2.9 times, to 2 billion 160 million pounds sterling. Such a significant drop is explained by the fact that one-time income from the sale of RB Food business and income received as a result of the US tax reform were included in the profit indicator for 2017. The profit indicator, which does not take into account one-off factors, in 2018 grew by 4%. Revenue amounted to 12 billion 600 million pounds, an increase of 10%. Comparable sales have increased over the year by 3%.
