On December 5, 2023, P&G disclosed in a filing with the SEC that the Company will incur up to $2.5B in charges related to its 2005 acquisition of Gillette and restructuring of operations in several markets.
P&G further advised that it anticipates a $1B after-tax non-cash impairment charge during the quarter to adjusts the carrying value of the Gillette indefinite-lived intangible asset acquired as part of its Gillette acquisition, to fair value. According to P&G, the impairment charge arises from:
  • reduction in the estimated fair value of the Gillette indefinite-lived intangible asset due to a higher discount rate,
  • weakening of several currencies relative to the U.S. dollar and
  • the impact of the restructuring program described above.
P&G further advised that future adverse changes in the business or macroeconomic environment may trigger a further impairment charge.
On this news, $PG fell 3.49% and lost over $12.47 billion of its market capitalization, seriously damaging shareholders.
