Unilever’s Volume Beats Estimates, Aided by Europe

Unilever, the world’s second-biggest consumer products maker, reported third-quarter volume growth that beat estimates as customers bought more deodorants and ice cream in western Europe.

So-called underlying volume grew 4.8 percent, the London- and Rotterdam-based company said today in a statement. That compares with the 4.4 percent median estimate of seven analysts surveyed by Bloomberg News. The shares rose as much as 5.1 percent in Amsterdam trading.
