Nestlé Group (NSTR.L, NSRGY.PK) reported fiscal 2012 net profit of 10.6 billion Swiss francs; an increase of 1.1 billion francs from last year. Profit per share increased 12.2% to 3.33 francs. Underlying earnings per share in constant currencies were up 7.5%. Reported sales were up 10.2% to 92.2 billion francs. Organic growth was 5.9%, and was composed of 3.1% real internal growth and 2.8% pricing.
