    OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2013) - The Clorox Company (NYSE: CLX) today reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013, which ended June 30. For the full fiscal year, the company delivered 3 percent sales growth, 80 basis points of gross margin expansion and $4.31 diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations. For the fourth quarter, the company reported a slight increase in sales, gross margin expansion of 130 basis points and $1.38 diluted EPS from continuing operations.

    "Clorox people around the world delivered solid results this fiscal year," said Chairman and CEO Don Knauss. "We grew sales in all four segments behind product innovation across multiple brands and delivered strong gross margin expansion."

Excluding the impact of foreign currencies, sales grew nearly 1.5 percent in the quarter. While sales results came in slightly lower than anticipated, I feel good about our plans to address the competitive pressures we're facing, including increased merchandising activity as well as product innovation scheduled to launch in fiscal year 2014."
