Headline: Beiersdorf resolves additional measures to implement its Consumer 
Business Strategy 2015 
 
Beiersdorf resolves additional measures to implement its Consumer Business 
Strategy 2015 
 
The Executive Board of Beiersdorf Aktiengesellschaft today resolved 
measures to strengthen the company's regional focus, based on its Consumer 
Business Strategy 2015 ('Focus on Skin Care. Closer to Markets'); these 
were approved by the Supervisory Board at its meeting today. The aim is to 
simplify and optimize the company's structures and processes and align them 
with a stronger role for the regions and clearly defined responsibilities 
for the headquarters and affiliates. 
 
From today's perspective, Beiersdorf is forecasting potential annual 
savings of approximately EUR90 million starting in fiscal year 
2014; 
savings of approximately EUR25 million are already expected to be generated 
in 2012 and of approximately EUR75 million in 2013. The company is 
budgeting for a total extraordinary expense of approximately EUR265 
million, the bulk of which will be incurred in 2011. This expense also 
includes impairment losses of approximately EUR140 million on intangible 
assets relating to the Chinese hair care business, due to the revision of 
business structures in China. Up to 1,000 employees worldwide, including up 
to 230 in Germany, may be affected by the measures. 
 
The operating EBIT margin for the Beiersdorf Group as a whole and for the 
Consumer business segment in fiscal 2011 will be unchanged in each case at 
10-11%; the tesa business segment is not affected by the measures. 
 
The measures are designed to improve the company's earnings power and 
increase its competitive ability in the medium term.
