Executive Summary

ALBERTO-CULVER NET SALES UP 4.5% TO $445.4 MIL. in the first quarter of fiscal 1998 (ended Dec. 31) compared to sales of $426.1 mil. in the same quarter of FY 1997, Alberto-Culver announced Jan. 22. The company attributed a major portion of its growth to the Sally Beauty Company division, which reported a double-digit sales increase. Net earnings rose 17.4% to $19.7 mil. from $16.8 mil. in the year-ago quarter, excluding an after-tax gain of $9.8 mil. in FY 1997 related to an insurance payment following the crash of a corporate airplane. The "increases were achieved in a tough competitive environment and in the face of material impact from lower currency rates internationally," President and CEO Howard Bernick observed at a same-day annual shareholders meeting.
