I am pleased to report strong performance with all financial KPIs ahead of our medium-term expectations. After separating from GSK in 2022, Haleon is now on a journey to become more agile and consumer focused with a leading portfolio. During 2023, we examined our processes to ensure that they were fit for purpose and restructured where necessary.

Key performance indicators

We have several enterprise metrics monitoring performance across the business, from which we select our key performance indicators.


Financial


Organic revenue growth1,2

Measures the strength of our existing portfolio.

Adjusted operating profit1

Our adjusted operating profit is an important indicator of the strength of our business model.

Free cash flow1
 

Provides the business with capacity to invest in the business, pay down debt and make shareholder returns.

Net debt/Adjusted EBITDA1

Reducing our leverage strengthens our balance sheet and maintains our Investment-Grade credit rating.

Business gained/maintained shared

The attractiveness of our products is key for all our stakeholders, giving them confidence in our ability to increase household penetration and capitalise on new and emerging opportunities.

1 Organic revenue growth, adjusted operating profit, free cash flow and net debt are non-IFRS measures. Definitions and calculations of non-IFRS measures can be found from page 43 of the 2023 Annual Report and Form 20-F.

2 Haleon portfolio revenue growth in 2020 and 2021 was 4.9% and 3.9% respectively which illustrates the performance of the brands that make up the portfolio at the time of the demerger.

3 The reporting period runs from 1 December 2022 to 30 November 2023. Carbon offsets account for 25% of our market based Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions. Calculated in accordance with methodology and data improvements, and updated carbon emissions factors for our 2020 baseline, hence the 2022 result differs from the value disclosed in the 2022 Annual Report and Form 20-F.

4 Reporting period runs from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023. Recycle-ready means packaging that has been developed to be compatible with a targeted existing or emerging recycling infrastructure. By recycling infrastructure, we mean the state-of-the-art technology and operations capable of achieving efficient collection, sorting and processing into recycled material feedstocks.
