As a result, group sales fell in the quarter but the company managed to post bottom line growth of 2% as a result of operating leverage and financial efficiencies. The group declared a 6% increase in the dividend.

The period also saw the significant push by the company to rebalance its portfolio with the proposed asset swap with Novartis.
