The pandemic-induced demand translated into promising results for the company
One of the most known American personal care corporations, Kimberly-Clark, which manufactures mostly paper-based products, unveiled its Q4 earnings earlier today.
The Texas-based company reported an adjusted EPS of $1.69, topping the estimates by 9 cents. At the same time, it reported revenues of $4.84 billion, higher than the $4.73 billion anticipated.
