    Italy fines Unilever for abuse of dominant position in ice cream

    Italy's antitrust agency said on Wednesday it had fined Unilever's (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS) Italian unit more than 60 million euros ($71 million) for abusing its dominant position in the country's ice cream market. It said Unilever had abused its position in single-wrapped so-called impulse ice creams, intended for immediate consumption, which it sells through its "Algida" brand. The local unit of the world's biggest ice cream maker said in a statement it rejected the agency's conclusion and would appeal.

    Buyout firm Platinum seeks parts of Unilever spreads business - sources

    Investment firm Platinum Equity is preparing a binding bid for part of Unilever's (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS) margarine and spreads business, sources familiar with the matter said, ahead of next week's deadline for final offers. Los Angeles-based Platinum wants the portion of Unilever's spreads business that covers developed markets such as Europe and the United States where demand has been falling but profit margins remain high, rather than the whole unit which includes emerging markets, the sources said. Unilever's banks Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs have asked bidders to submit final bids by Dec. 11 as the consumer giant wants to clinch a deal before the end of 2017, they said.

    Unilever CEO defends balance between growth, margin

    Under pressure to show he could speed up returns as a standalone company after rebuffing a $143 billion (£105.86 billion) bid, the maker of Dove soap and Magnum ice cream in April pledged to lift its operating margin to 20 percent by 2020. On Thursday evening, at the end of a two-day investor conference in New Jersey, Polman stressed that Unilever was not doing anything that would hurt volume growth, and that margin benefits were the result of prior investments. Polman said reductions in absolute marketing spending were due to efficiencies and criticised shareholders for pushing for margins but then changing their tune.

    Unilever touts new products, structure to fight rivals

    Anglo-Dutch consumer goods maker Unilever (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS) told investors on Wednesday that it expects new products and a leaner organisation to help win an intensifying battle to sell packaged goods around the world. The maker of Dove soap and Knorr soup, which is under huge shareholder pressure since rebuffing a $143 billion (£107 billion) takeover bid in February from Kraft-Heinz (KHC.O), posted an unexpected slowdown in sales last month, citing lost market share to smaller rivals. The company's 20 billion-euro-a-year personal care business, often seen as its most attractive, posted only 2.4 percent growth in the first nine months of the year, but the unit's president, Alan Jope, on Wednesday said it should be back above 4 percent soon.

    Anglo-Dutch Unilever favors single home, but delays choice

    Unilever (ULVR.L) favours creating a single corporate structure, but is delaying a choice between its British and Dutch bases, the consumer goods group said on Tuesday, in part because of the heightened political sensitivity of the decision due to Brexit. After rebuffing a $143 billion takeover offer from Kraft Heinz (KHC.O), Unilever said in April it would review its dual structure under which it is based and listed in both Britain and the Netherlands, aiming for a decision by the end of the year. A recent move by the Dutch government to scrap a tax on dividends was seen as an effort to keep the maker of Dove soap and Knorr soup in the Netherlands.
