Unilever NV <UNA.AS> shareholders approved plans to end the Anglo-Dutch company's dual-headed corporate structure and form a London-based entity, which it says will make dealmaking simpler. Unilever wants to unify on Nov. 22, ending 90 years as a hybrid since Britain's soap-making Lever Brothers merged with Margarine Unie in the Netherlands. To go ahead the plan must also be approved by investors in Britain's Unilever Plc <ULVR.L>, who are due to vote on Oct. 12.
Alan Jope, the chief executive of Unilever <ULVR.L> <UNc.AS>, said on Monday the company would press on with plans to unify despite a Dutch opposition party proposal calling for an "exit tax" on the firm if it moves to a single British parent company and headquarters as planned. At a meeting at which holders of the company's Dutch shares are expected to approve unification, Jope repeated the tax proposal is at an early stage and Unilever believes it would violate international law. Unilever says the tax could cost it up to 11 billion euros and would be a reason to stop the unification.
Some of the world's biggest companies on Monday backed growing calls for governments to do more to reverse the accelerating destruction of the natural world and support broader efforts to fight climate change. More than 560 companies with combined revenues of $4 trillion including Walmart, Citigroup and Microsoft signed up to a statement calling for action over the next decade.
