Item 2.02     Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On October 19, 2021, Johnson & Johnson issued the attached press release announcing its sales and earnings for the third quarter ended October 3, 2021.

Item 7.01     Regulation FD Disclosure

Subsequent to the quarter, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary LTL Management LLC (LTL), a newly created and separate subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, that was established to hold and manage claims in the cosmetic talc litigation, has filed for voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This filing is intended to resolve all claims related to cosmetic talc in a manner that is equitable to all parties, including any current and future claimants. Johnson & Johnson and its other affiliates did not file for bankruptcy protection and will continue to operate their businesses as usual. To demonstrate its commitment to resolving the cosmetic talc cases and remove any financial objections to the process, Johnson & Johnson has agreed to provide funding to LTL for the payment of amounts the Bankruptcy Court determines are owed by LTL and will also establish a $2 billion trust in furtherance of this purpose. The $2 billion trust resulted in an incremental $1.4 billion litigation charge (recorded in Other income & expense) in the third fiscal quarter. While LTL pursues this equitable resolution, all pending cosmetic talc cases will be stayed. The press release further discussing this announcement is attached below as Exhibit 99.3.
Item 9.01    Financial Statements and Exhibits
