Need to attract remaining households

Because the listing fees per retailer are contingent on the fail of the launch, they are not included in an initial estimate.
Advertising and capital costs may serve as a setback initially, however, in keeping align with P&G's purpose, we believe that it is a must that we aggressively defend P&G against major competitive challenges despite short-term profit consequences.
