The sales of Clorox Co. surged 27% in the three months through September. This comes as consumers stocked up on cleaning products during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Fox Business, the company reported fiscal first-quarter sales of $1.92 billion. It surpassed the $1.75 billion that analysts surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting.

“We delivered another quarter of outstanding results to have a strong start to the fiscal year, with broad-based strength across our portfolio, driving double-digit sales growth in all reportable segments,” said CEO Linda Rendle in a statement.

“Clorox just reported its best quarter since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic,” Barclays analysts say. This says a lot, “given how strong demand has been for its products throughout,” the analysts wrote in a note, as reported by Financial Buzz.

Financial Buzz added that net profit was up 104% – amounting to $415 Million, or an adjusted $3.22 a share.
