A former Procter & Gamble Co. employee and two other men entered guilty pleas in federal court in connection with the theft of more than $200,000 worth of Gillette razors that were sold on eBay. Joseph Evangelista, 63, who stole newly manufactured razor blades from the Gillette plant where he worked in South Boston, pleaded guilty to one count of causing the interstate transportation of stolen property. Robert Liberatore, 52, and Mark Girardin, 44, who sold the razors online in bulk quantities, each pleaded guilty to two counts of filing false tax returns.
P&G CEO David Taylor said in a letter mailed to shareholders Aug. 14 that the company’s improving performance is proof there’s no need to add Peltz to the board. On Feb. 15, P&G stock jumped by nearly 4 percent and set a new 52-week high on media reports that Trian Fund Management had acquired a large stake in P&G. Shares closed at $91.12 that day. Taylor wrote that P&G research suggested that adding Peltz to the board wouldn’t be in the best interest of other shareholders.
