    "SOLID RESULTS" Q2 looking good

    - Strong A+ balance sheet allowed for issuance of USD 1.5 billion and
    GBP 0.35 billion of bonds at very competitive rates.

    Paul Polman, Chief Executive Officer: "First quarter results were
    solid given today's trading environment, with growth of 4.8% and
    underlying margins maintained, before dilution from disposals. We
    have made good progress implementing plans to reignite volume growth,
    building on existing strengths and correcting competitive gaps. We will
    further step up innovation and brand support from the second quarter
    and expect this to drive an improved volume performance. This will be
    achieved while protecting cash and margins for the year."
