    Inflation Is Back—and Unilever, Nestlé Are Taking Advantage

    Two of the world’s largest consumer-goods companies, Unilever PLC and Nestlé SA, reported stronger sales as a wave of inflation in many markets emboldened them to raise prices. Unilever, the maker of Hellmann’s mayonnaise and Dove soap, on Thursday said third-quarter sales climbed 3.8% on an underlying basis, with prices up 1.4%. Nestlé, which makes Kit Kat chocolate and Nescafe coffee, reported organic sales up 2.9% for the quarter, saying prices grew by 0.9%.

    Price increases underpin sales growth at Nestle, Unilever

    Nestle (NESN.S) and Unilever (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS), two of the world's biggest consumer goods makers, both reported a pick-up in quarterly sales on Thursday after getting higher prices for their products. This is a change from earlier this year, when pricing was steady and the likes of Unilever and Nestle had to rely almost entirely on selling more goods to drive revenue growth. Unilever -- the Anglo-Dutch maker of Dove soap which dropped plans to move to the Netherlands this month after British investors rebelled - said it expects more price rises to come through in the fourth quarter, which could weigh on demand.

    Unilever third-quarter sales growth picks up with prices

    Unilever, which dropped plans to move to the Netherlands this month after British investors rebelled, reported a pick-up in third-quarter sales on Thursday, as it was able to pass on higher commodity costs to consumers. The Anglo-Dutch maker of Dove soap and Ben & Jerry's ice cream did not give an update on its thinking about simplifying its dual-headed structure beyond saying it would take time to fully digest shareholder feedback after the backlash against the Netherlands move. Unilever said underlying sales rose 3.8 percent in the third quarter.

The figure strips out Argentina, which accounts for about 2 per cent of sales, because inflation there would have skewed the data.

    Unilever to engage more with shareholders

    Unilever will engage more with its shareholders and has learned lessons from investors' opposition to the consumer goods group's pay policy, a company executive said on Tuesday in response to questions from a British parliamentary committee. Unilever, Britain's third largest company by value, has faced two investor revolts this year, calling into question how closely the maker of Marmite and Dove soap listens to the concerns of its shareholders. The compensation plan was opposed by more than a third of Unilever's UK shareholders in May, though it passed by a majority.

    A Unilever executive defended the company's executive pay policy on Tuesday, but said the consumer goods company had learned lessons from the substantial minority opposition the policy attracted earlier this year. Peter Newhouse, executive vice president for reward at Unilever, told the British parliament's Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee that the company was engaging with shareholders now and planning meetings for the second half of October. Newhouse appeared as a witness as part of the committee's inquiry on executive pay and measures being taken to tackle excessive boardroom pay awards.

    In haste to go Dutch, Unilever misjudged concerns in Brexit-bound UK

    Unilever's reputation for valuing all stakeholders rather than just shareholders boosted its corporate governance credentials, but landed the consumer goods firm in trouble when it tried to move its headquarters from London. A growing list of British institutional refuseniks and the prospect of a retail investor rebellion in the context of Britain's planned exit from the European Union prompted the company to reverse course and ditch the plan on Friday, three weeks before it was to be voted on. Interviews with UK shareholders, advisors and analysts paint a picture of Unilever (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS) as either miscalculating the level of dissent to becoming a single corporate entity headquartered in the Netherlands, or dismissing it in the interests of a broader vision they were convinced was right.

    [$$] Unilever Drops Plan to Leave London Amid Shareholder Revolt

    Unilever PLC on Friday abandoned its plan to ditch its London headquarters in favor of the Netherlands after facing mounting opposition from some of its largest investors. The move would have cost Unilever its place in the U.K.’s FTSE 100 index, forcing some investors to sell. The reversal represents a surprise capitulation for departing Chief Executive Paul Polman, who made the consolidation effort his swan song.

    Unilever drops Dutch headquarters move after British investors rebel

    Unilever (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS) executives scrapped plans to move the company headquarters to the Netherlands on Friday in the face of a shareholder revolt, keeping one of Britain's most valuable businesses in London ahead of Brexit. The climbdown came just three weeks before planned votes on the proposal and is a victory for shareholders who opposed a change which would have removed the maker of Marmite, Dove soap and Ben & Jerry's ice cream from the benchmark FTSE 100 index (.FTSE). Unilever's board, led by Chairman Marijn Dekkers and fellow Dutchman Paul Polman, the chief executive, agreed to scrap the plan during a call early on Friday after it became clear that it could fall short of the approval needed, a source familiar with the matter said.

    Abandoned by Unilever, Dutch prime minister forced to reconsider tax plan

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his government would reconsider plans to scrap its dividend tax in a major political climbdown only hours after Unilever (ULVR.L) dropped plans to move its headquarters to the Netherlands. Rutte, who had argued that getting rid of the 15 percent withholding tax on dividends was vital for the country's business climate, said his government must reconsider its entire package of tax reforms. "We didn't decide to scrap the dividend tax for just one company, but the fact that such a large company that had decided to come to the Netherlands has withdrawn its plan is very relevant," he told reporters in The Hague.
