Home cleaning products maker Clorox to exit Venezuela
56 minutes ago (Reuters)
Home cleaning products maker Clorox Co said it was discontinuing operations in Venezuela as the business was no longer viable and that it was looking to sell its assets there. Clorox said the operating restrictions imposed by the Venezuelan government, economic uncertainty and supply disruptions would have led to considerable operating losses for the foreseeable future. Venezuela devalued its currency bolivar last year, which forced a number of consumer goods companies such as Colgate-Palmolive Co and Avon Products Inc to slash product prices. Clorox said in June that the economic environment in Venezuela was worsening and the company was "considering all its options."
