This article reports on the financial performance of personal-care company Kimberly-Clark Corp. (K-C) in the U.S. for the third quarter of 1999. After struggling through two restructurings, 5,000 layoffs, and share losses of brands picked up in its 1995 acquisition of Scott Paper Co., the company has gained sales of 7% for the period. Production and distribution efficiencies have allowed K-C to plow cash back into advertising and product development at a faster rate than sales growth in previous quarters. The company's advertising and promotion spending was up 15.4% and research expenditures rose 14.8% in the third quarter.
