April 19, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Asian-Americans spend more on skincare on average than other consumers around the world, and 70% more than the average American. They also spend more than the average consumer globally on perfume, cosmetics and hair care, according to research from LondonEconomic.com. Asian-Americans are choosing premium skincare products, such as face cream made with snail extract in South Korea and now available in the US. Average expenditure on health in the US is higher than in other countries, but although the US tops the list of the number of people undergoing cosmetic surgery, for either medical or aesthetic purposes, the percentage of the population choosing surgery is higher for South Korea. The US ranks highest for average expenditure by men and women on cosmetics, with Japan second, and it ranks top for usage, with Japan top in Asia. [ Image credit: Image Source ]

Unilever To Sell Its Margarine, Spreads Unit

April 6, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Like many big food companies, Unilever is struggling to keep with the times, and with evolving consumer tastes, preferences and health concerns. The latest manifestation of the strategic rethinking, revamping, cost-cutting process – spurred by the failed Kraft Heinz takeover bid in February – is its decision to sell its margarine and spreads business for a price upwards of $7.5 billion. In addition to cost cutting, the Anglo-Dutch multinational hopes to buttress returns by implementing a dividend boost and a share buyback. Unilever’s margarine and spread business includes familiar brands Country Crock and I Can’t Believe It’s not Butter. Other companies that have recently announced plans to divest or acquire businesses include Reckitt Benckiser, Danone SA, ConAgra Brands, Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc., and PepsiCo Inc.  [ Image credit: © Wikipedia  ]

Will Costco Put More Energy Into Online Bulk Sales?

April 5, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Costco has for the most part downplayed the e-commerce side of its business while emphasizing store traffic, impulse buying, and a “treasure hunt” atmosphere of constant churning of new products. It’s a strategy that continues to be profitable. But investors and analysts think it’s time the bulk-selling giant adapts to modern times. The logistical technology is certainly available, even for Costco-size shipments. A Costco spokesman says the company has been slow on the uptake “on purpose,” but acknowledges “there are things we can do or should be doing.” Now it may be getting tougher: carriers like UPS and FedEx Corp. are beginning to charge based on package size as well as weight.

FEATURE: Where Now For Unilever? We Lay Out Our Thoughts And Suggested Response To The Humbling Kraft Heinz Bid

April 2, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The unexpected and deeply unwelcome Kraft Heinz takeover bid shook  Unilever* to its core. Analysts and commentators expected 3G to use Kraft Heinz as a vehicle for further acquisitions in the food space as it pushed to aggressively cut costs across larger businesses, but Unilever was thought to be above the fray.  In a tacit admission of past failure, Unilever convened a hurried review of ways to boost its valuation and in coming days or weeks we’ll see what this holds. Meanwhile, we have clarified our own thinking about how Unilever should move forward as a vibrant independent company that quickly surfaces its underlying value. You can read a summary of our analysis here and contact us if you want further details.
 
*Disclosure: Unilever is a client of ours, as are most of the companies we list as acquisition targets. Also, our newsletters are read by recipients at all companies mentioned in this piece.

UAE's Market Beauty Keeps Growing Despite Global Slowdown

April 2, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
In the United Arab Emirates, consumers spent $247 per capita on cosmetics and personal care, according to Euromonitor International. Data from the market research firm revealed this figure is forecast to grow to $294 in 2020. According to Euromonitor International analyst Amna Abbas, the global economic slowdown “has made little impact” on the local beauty market. Other signs of the beauty market's resilience include the large increase in number of companies joining the Beautyworld Middle East trade show. Factors driving market growth include the growing popularity of social media, in particular, the Snapchat and Instagram platforms.

Australia's Advertising Standards Bureau has ruled against claims of improper advertising against Unilever's Lynx personal care brand and Magnum and Streets ice cream brands.
