Unicharm seen beating April-December estimates

TOKYO -- Unicharm likely topped its April-December earnings forecast on brisk sales of diapers in China, Southeast Asia and other foreign markets as well as premium offerings at home.

     Operating profit is seen at around 59 billion yen ($493 million) for the nine-month period, a short fiscal year resulting from a change in the accounting period. The figure beats its projection by 2.4 billion yen. Unicharm logged a 49.1 billion yen operating profit a year earlier.
