Beiersdorf, the maker of Nivea and other skin care brands, is buying U.S. sun care brand Coppertone from Bayer for $550 million to strengthen its position in North America, the German consumer goods firm said on Monday. Beiersdorf said in a statement that Coppertone had sales of around $213 million in 2018. "We are convinced that Coppertone and its team will add complementary expertise to our leading brand portfolio and significantly strengthen our position particularly in the U.S.," said Beiersdorf chief executive Stefan de Loecker.

NEW YORK, May 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Nielsen (NLSN) announced the renewal and expansion of its analytic relationship with Beiersdorf U.S., a trusted global leader within the skin care category.

German consumer goods firm Beiersdorf reported a recovery in sales of its Nivea skin cream and its premium La Prairie brand in the first quarter after a new chief executive pledged more investment to fight niche brands. Beiersdorf shares rose more than 3 percent after the group said on Tuesday that first-quarter sales came in at 1.947 billion euros (£1.7 billion), a rise of 6 percent after stripping out currency effects and acquisitions. Mass-market labels like Nivea have struggled in recent years amid the rise of small, disruptive brands like Canada's The Ordinary, and as consumers favoured more natural ingredients and premium products.
European shares fell in early deals on Wednesday, snapping a three-day winning streak amid growing India-Pakistan tensions, and a warning from Beiersdorf hammered consumer staples stocks while Air France-KLM and Marks & Spencer sank. The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed down 0.3 percent, having touched its highest level since the beginning of October on Tuesday.
Beiersdorf is the latest consumer goods company to reset profit expectations for 2019 after German rival Henkel and Colgate-Palmolive last month, and following Kraft Heinz's writedown last week. "The consumer goods industry... is in turmoil," new Beiersdorf CEO Stefan De Loecker, who took over on Jan. 1, said in a presentation to analysts.
European shares fell in early deals on Wednesday, snapping a three-day winning streak amid growing Indian-Pakistani tensions, and a warning from Beiersdorf hammered consumer staples stocks while Air France-KLM and Marks and Spencer sank. Investors were still awaiting fresh news on China-U.S. trade talks, but sentiment overall was gloomy with a growing confrontation between India and Pakistan rattling confidence in assets considered risky. "Geopolitical tensions between Pakistan and India have strongly impacted equities from Tokyo to London today, with investors fearing a further escalation," said Pierre Veyret, analyst at ActivTrades.
Nivea skin cream maker Beiersdorf will make additional investment of up to 80 million euros ($91 million) a year in its consumer business to counter a forecast drop in sales growth, the German company said on Tuesday. New CEO Stefan De Loecker, who took the reins on Jan. 1, last month promised strategic steps to deliver sustainable growth after reporting slower sales in the fourth quarter of 2018. "Our entire business model needs timely adaptation due to new market realities and fast-changing technology developments," De Loecker said ahead of 2018 results to be published on Wednesday.
