This is a strategic choice to focus on continued growth of P&Gs tissue, towel and facial tissue businesses in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, led by billion dollar brands Bounty and Charmin, said David Taylor, president of P&Gs global tissue and towel business.

Procter & Gamble expects that employees at five manufacturing plants in Europe will become employees of SCA at the deal closing date, the time for which remains dependent on regulatory processes in Europe. The divestiture represents roughly 1% of P&Gs total sales.
