PRINCETON, New Jersey , January 4, 2012 (press release) – Church & Dwight Co., Inc. is exploring strategic options for its Specialty Chemical business in Brazil.

Due to the limited anticipated future profitability of this business, the Company will incur a non-cash charge to earnings of approximately $0.10 per share in the fourth quarter of 2011, reflecting the establishment of a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets.

Aside from the $0.10 charge, the Company remains confident in its previously announced full year earnings per share estimate for 2011.

Church & Dwight Co., Inc. manufactures and markets a wide range of personal care, household and specialty products under the Arm & Hammer brand name and other well-known trademarks.
