Consumer and health product firm Johnson & Johnson said Monday that it expects to take a charge of about USD 100 million in the first quarter due to Venezuela's currency devaluation.

J & J said that the charge is equivalent to about four cents per share and will not hit the company's estimated income in 2013 (USD 5.36-5.45 per share), Reuters informed.

Early in February, Venezuela devaluated the bolivar from VEB 4.30 to VEB 6.30 per US dollar. This is the country's fifth devaluation in 10 years.
