Avon webcast and Q3 release postponed following Hurricane Sandy impact

- Last updated on GMT

Avon Products has made the decision to postpone its third quarter earnings release and webcast originally scheduled today, in light of Hurricane Sandy and its impact on New York City. 

The company is currently planning to hold the earnings webcast on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 8:30 AM Eastern time and will issue a confirmation of the date and time once the weather situation has stabilized.

Hurricane Sandy has swept through an 800 mile stretch across the East Coast affecting New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Vermont.

Flights have been grounded, towns flooded, and US President Barack Obama has declared a "major disaster" in New York state after Sandy smashed into the US East Coast, causing flooding and cutting power to millions.
