(Reuters) - Procter & Gamble Co <PG.N>, the world's largest household products maker, reported a higher than expected quarterly profit on Wednesday, helped by an increase in home care products sales and better cost control.
But net sales were unchanged at $20.6 billion, disappointing investors looking for stronger growth. Organic sales, which exclude the impact of divestitures and acquisitions, rose 3 percent.
