The Procter & Gamble Company Research Report

Reddot has named P&G's Braun CoolTec as recipient of this year's Product
Design Award. The Braun CoolTec shaver effortlessly combines functionality,
performance and aesthetics in one product. With this award, the new Braun
CoolTec joins an exclusive category of more than 250 Braun products that have
received leading international design awards throughout the past five decades.
The Braun CoolTec shaver combines a unique icy-blue color with a premium black
contrasting in parts of the body. The ergonomic body of the shaver and
intuitive handling via the icicle button activate the cooling feature, which
cools down the skin during the shaving process. This minimizes irritation and

Kimberly Ross, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Avon

Kimberly Clark Corp. Research Report

"On the road with ON-Q: Post-Operative Pain Education Bus Tour", a nationwide
campaign aimed at educating clinicians, administrators and other healthcare
professionals about the importance of a post-operative pain management program
has been initialized by I-Flow, a Kimberly-Clark Health Care Company. "For
care providers, acute surgical pain management is an increasingly important
issue, as the negative effects of powerful narcotics have become further
realized," said Chris Barys, General Manager, I-Flow. "The goal of the mobile
classroom is to give clinicians the education and resources they need to make
the most optimal pain management decisions post-surgery, maintaining the
patient's comfort and safety as the top priority." Powerful narcotics used to
be the treatment of choice when it comes to post-surgical pain. This caused
undesirable side-effects such as grogginess, immunosuppression, nausea and
vomiting as well as the risk of addiction. By reducing the use of narcotics,
with a pain pump, patients are more likely to experience better pain
management and faster recovery times - patients typically go home an average
of 1.1 days sooner than when treated with narcotics alone and hospitals
realize additional cost savings. The Full Research Report on Kimberly Clark

Blyth, Inc. Research Report

Despite a slight decrease in net sales for 2012 Q4, Blyth has still managed to
position itself for profitable growth. The sale of Sterno and its new,
long-term understanding with ViSalus Founders to penetrate markets outside the
U.S. has put the company in an advantage. "ViSalus's fourth quarter sales, at
$127 million, represented 29% year-over-year sales growth," said Robert B.
Goergen, Chairman of the Board and CEO for Blyth. "Moreover, its full year
sales were $624 million versus $230 million in 2011. That ViSalus achieved
such significant market penetration highlights the opportunity in opening
additional markets outside of North America, beginning in 2013, following the
lead of many global health and wellness competitors," he added. The company
will also continue to invest in Candles & Home Décor and Catalog & Internet
businesses in order to attain long-term sales and earnings growth. The Full

Estee Lauder Companies Inc. Research Report

The Estee Lauded Companies has been awarded the Point Inspiration Award by the
Point Foundation - the nation's largest scholarship-granting organization for
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGTBQ) students. "I'm deeply
honored to accept the Point Inspiration Award on behalf of The Estee Lauder
Companies," said Peter Lichtenthal, President, Bumble and bumble and Smashbox.

diversity. We have supported many LGBTQ causes over the years, and our belief
in Point Foundation, and the transformative help it provides to deserving
scholars, is an important example of this commitment. Point provides LGBTQ
scholars not only with funding, but with crucial mentoring services that work
to ensure the scholar's success. I have found working with Point Foundation
highly rewarding, first as co-chair of some of Point's 2012 events and
