The company´s sales

Mr Webber and his staff are in the meeting room. He is talking to them about the company´s sales in the last six months.

Good morning. Well… we have met this morning to talk about the company´s sales from july to December.

As the bar chart shows, we had a succesful sale in july due to our latest product launched during that month: Goddess of Beauty. Then, we suffered a Sharp fall in August and september, followed by a slight increase in October and November. But, unfortunately –if you look at the bar chart- there has been a dramatic decrease in December.

In spite of these results, don´t forget that we have become one of the world´s leading companies in cosmetic during the last twenty years; and I am sure we will be able to find new ideas to improve the earnings and to get, in short, a steady rise.
