German household consumer products maker Henkel AG & Co KGaA (>> Henkel AG & Co KGaA) Friday reconfirmed its 2012 guidance and posted third-quarter revenue growth, as demand from emerging markets continues to support sales in all three business sectors.


-Sales rose 6.6% on the year in the third quarter of 2012 to EUR4.29 billion ($5.47 billion) with all three divisions contributing to positive growth to the figure.
