  • P&G

kYrPoJnL_400x400Procter & Gamble Co. is planning to cut at least US$500 million from agency fees under a new drive to reduce the number of agencies it works with. P&G total spending on agency fees is estimated at around US$1 billion. The move comes as P&G's top-line results disappointed Wall Street, with organic revenue growth rising 1% last quarter, below the 2% projected by many analysts, and as P&G plans to step up its headcount reductions. By the end of the current fiscal year in June, P&G would hit the high end of its current plan to have reduced non-manufacturing headcount by 22% over two years. Now, it's stepping up planned job cuts to a 25% to 30% reduction by the end of next fiscal year, exclusive of the impact of divestitures.The firm has already announced divestitures include Iams, Duracell, DDF, the Ace bleach business overseas and a number of small fragrance brands, such as the Avril Lavigne license.
