Hain Celestial’s 2nd Quarter Sales, Profits Increase, But Miss Forecasts

February 7, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Natural and organic food marketer Hain Celestial (Lake Success, N.Y.) posted second quarter profit of $47.1 million on sales of $775.2 million, a five percent increase over the same period last year. Second quarter profit was up 73 percent over the prior year period. But the results missed Wall Street estimates, sending shares on a downward slide, dropping 6.3 percent in morning trading. Nevertheless, CEO Irwin D. Simon said he was pleased with the financial performance and noted that the company continues to look for ways to simplify its brand portfolio and “reduce complexities.” Though net sales for Hain Pure Protein increased four percent to $159 million over the prior year period, the company said it is exploring the divestiture of the business.

New Tests For Skin Allergy, Eye Irritation Offer Alternatives To Animal Testing

November 28, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal has developed two ways to test compounds for skin allergy and eye irritation that can be used instead of animal testing. The two new alternatives have been adopted by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). U-SENS predicts the sensitizing potential of formulations, while HCE EIT can detect the eye irritation potential of chemicals. The U-SENS method for detecting and predicting a skin allergy is based on tests performed in vitro on human cells that express a specific marker of immunity. HCE EIT is based on a human cornea epithelium model reconstructed in vitro that faithfully reproduces human histological and morphological properties.  [ Image credit: © Univ. of Cincinnati  ]

Stagnant Indonesia Economy Could Drive Unilever To Tinker With Product Portfolio

November 2, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
A PT Unilever Indonesia executive said a stagnant business environment tends to increase the cost of living and push middle-class consumers toward smaller, cheaper products. More affluent consumers, however, continue to buy premium-priced goods. Consumer research in Indonesia shows that the composition of high-income, middle-income, and low-income consumers is now 10 percent-40 percent-50 percent, respectively. The middle-income segment could decline, however, if the stagnant environment persisted. Anticipating that, Unilever would “need to change our portfolio."  [ Image credit: © Unilever Indonesia   ]

FMCG Start-Ups In India Rely On Innovation, Pluck

October 13, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The biggest hurdles for India’s start-up FMCG companies as they battle industry giants for market share are capital, retail shelf space, distribution, and marketing. They sometimes make strides through pure luck, but innovation and persistence are the most reliable vehicles to success. In its early days RAW Pressery, for example, an online marketer of cold-pressed juices, adapted Mumbai’s dabbawala hot-lunch delivery system based on bicycles and rail transport to deliver its juice products. Dabbawalas were able to deliver 50,000 purchases in three hours. Four years later, the company’s fleet of 25 refrigerated vehicles delivers its own juices as well as products for other brands. The end result is that RAW Pressery and other aggressive start-ups are able to peel off market share from bigwigs like Unilever, Nestlé, and others.

Procter & Gamble Co.'s former CEO A.G. Lafley said shareholders should not elect activist investor Nelson Peltz to the company's board of directors.

Peltz, who has acquired $3.5-billion worth of stock in P&G, said he wants to cut the company's corporate employees by 90 percent. Peltz is the CEO of hedge fund company Trian Fund Management, which has a history of purchasing a large stake in a company, securing a board seat, and pushing for company reorganization in order to raise the stock price.

Unilever Joins Better Than Cash Alliance's Push For Digital Finance

September 26, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Unilever announced a collaboration with the UN-based group Better Than Cash Alliance, which promotes digital payment as a means of supporting women and smallholder farmers. Part of Unilever's Sustainable Living Plan, the consumer goods company's deal with the organization signals its commitment to move away from cash as a payment platform for its value chain. According to Better Than Cash Alliance, digital modes of repaying loans have enabled farmers to reduce payment losses and collections costs, as well as “improved transparency and efficiency.”

L’Oreal And Nestle To Face Ownership Options For French Cosmetics Group

September 22, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The death of heiress Liliane Bettencourt, whose family owns 33 percent of L’Oréal, will likely force key investors to address the company’s ownership structure. Nestlé SA, which owns 23 percent, agreed with the Bettencourts not to increase stakes in L’Oréal, but this agreement expires in six months.  Nestlé could then purchase a controlling share in L’Oréal but is more likely to sell its stake, a move that would force L’Oréal to accept wider (and potentially hostile) ownership or opt to invest further funds in the company, boosting earnings per share but reducing funds available for acquisitions.  For Nestlé, the resulting 24 billion euro windfall brings a dilemma. It could payout funds to appease shareholders and especially its activist investor, Third Point, or use the funds to double down on its currently lackluster food and nutrition business.

Skincare Products Get A New Lease On Life Around The Globe

September 8, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L'Oréal sees the skincare market reviving globally, especially in China, and that’s a “good phenomenon,” according to CEO Jean-Paul Agon. Skincare sales at the company are up by single-digit rates. Active Cosmetics was its second-biggest growth story in the first six months of the year, behind L’Oréal Luxe, which grew 15.4 percent. The consumer division, however, was its second-weakest in the first half of fiscal 2017, with sales up 3.8 percent to about $6.4 billion, hurt particularly by mass market makeup in the U.S. L'Oréal thinks the reasons might be “a certain transfer into higher-price items and maybe a reallocation of [consumer] spending" to different categories.

Americans Are Woefully Ignorant Of How To Properly Wash Their Faces

September 1, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
A national survey sponsored by L’Oréal’s CeraVe skincare brand found that 80 percent of Americans are not cleaning their faces properly, making mistakes like using bath wash or hand soap, water alone, or not washing at all. The survey of 1,000 adult Americans found that 60 percent feel uninformed about proper skin cleansing methods. Nearly two-thirds had no idea what ingredients to look for when purchasing a facial cleanser, and fewer than 10 percent had heard of the skin ingredients called ceramides – a key ingredient of the CeraVe line of products – that restore moisture and strengthen the skin barrier. A N.Y dermatologist said the results are “troubling” but not surprising. [ Image credit: © Dr. Cynthia Bailey  ]

Acquisitions, Divestitures, Keep L'Oréal Growing

September 1, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L'Oréal is rapidly gaining on household and personal products market leader Unilever in the international top 30 companies list compiled by Happi.com. Despite the company’s agreement to sell The Body Shop to Natura – “the best new owner we could imagine to nurture the brand,” said CEO Jean-Paul Agon – the company grew in size after acquiring CeraVe, AcneFree, and Ambi from Valeant for $1.3 billion. Last year, L'Oréal acquired IT Cosmetics for $1.2 billion and Atelier Cologne. The Active Cosmetics unit, parent of CeraVe and other product lines, saw sales rise 5.7 percent, driven by a 12 percent increase in La Roche-Posay sales. The division is also ramping up efforts to reduce skin cancer with an array of sun care products. [ Image credit: © L'Oréal  ]
