Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Other Events, Financial State


Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On October 24, 2013, Colgate-Palmolive Company (the "Company") issued a press release announcing its earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. This press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference in this Item 2.02.

The information in this Item 2.02 is being furnished and shall not be deemed "filed" for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information in this Item 2.02 shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1933, as amended.



Item 8.01. Other Events.

Given the growing importance of the Company's operations in emerging markets, effective with the quarter ended September 30, 2013, the Company is separately reporting financial information for its Asia and Africa/Eurasia operating segments. Previously, the financial information for these operating segments was aggregated into the Greater Asia/Africa reportable operating segment. This change has no impact on the Company's historical consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

For information purposes and to provide investors with historical information on a basis consistent with its new reporting structure, the Company has recast its historical geographic segment information to conform to the new reporting structure.

Attached as Exhibit 99.2 and incorporated by reference in this Item 8.01 are schedules containing segment information by operating segment for the years ended December 31, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008, the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 and the three months ended December 31, 2012.

As noted above, the segment change and supplemental disclosures discussed above have no impact on the Company's historical consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The recast financial information contained in Exhibit 99.2 does not represent a restatement of previously issued financial statements. The information in this Item 8.01, including Exhibit 99.2, should be read in conjunction with the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K for the years ended December 31, 2012, 2011 and 2010 and the Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013.
