P&G Set to Sell $12 Billion Worth of Its Beauty Brands to Coty

P&G Set to Sell $12 Billion Worth of Its Beauty Brands to Coty | beauty | Scoop.it

Leading consumer processed goods manufacturer Procter & Gamble is one step closer to a tax-free sale of some of its beauty brands valued at $12 billion. 

Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

Coty Inc., which owns popular fragrance brands like Calvin Klein and Marc Jacbos, has reportedly won the auction to acquire some of P&G’s hair care, fragrances, and cosmetics brands. If the deal goes through, it will rid P&G of popular brands like Wella and Clairol hair care brands, Gucci and Hugo Boss fragrance brands, and Max Factor and Cover Girl cosmetic brands. These are not necessarily loss-making or declining businesses, but P&G is selling them off because, according to the company, they do not conform to its core strengths. On the other hand, the acquisition of these brands will provide Coty an instant surge in its market share in the fragrances, hair care, and cosmetics businesses.

Chanel vend Bourjois au parfumeur américain Coty

Chanel vend Bourjois au parfumeur américain Coty | beauty | Scoop.it
Le parfumeur américain Coty a soumis une offre ferme pour l'acquisition de la marque de cosmétiques Bourjois. Chanel pourrait devenir actionnaire de Coty en cas de succès de l'opération.
Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

Coty Inc. et Chanel ont annoncé le 7 octobre que Coty a soumis une offre ferme pour l'acquisition de la marque de cosmétiques Bourjois Chanel en échange de 15 millions d'actions de catégorie A Coty. Chanel a accepté d'entrer en négociations exclusives.


 Bourjois a été fondée en 1863, par l'acteur français Joseph-Albert Ponsin, qui avait développé une ligne de produits cosmétiques pour ses collègues acteurs. Les produits cosmétiques Bourjois sont vendus par environ 23 000 points de vente dans plus de 50 pays à travers le monde, comme l'Europe occidentale, le Moyen-Orient et en Asie.


"Nous sommes impatients d'avoir la marque Bourjois dans le cadre de notre portefeuille de grands produits de beauté, ainsi que d'accueillir Chanel en tant qu'actionnaire Coty", a déclaré Bart Becht, président et chef de la direction intérimaire de Coty Inc. "Les marques Bourjois sont très complémentaires avec le portefeuille de produits cosmétiques de Coty", ajoute-t-il. "Nous sommes enthousiasmés par les possibilités que l'adhésion avec Coty pourrait présenter pour Bourjois," a déclaré Michael Rena, pour Chanel.

 

En 2013, la société Bourjois avait déclaré au greffe du tribunal de commerce un chiffre d'affaires de 260 millions d'euros, selon le site d'informations financières BVDinfo.com.

 

La santé financière actuelle de Chanel permet à l'entreprise d'envisager sereinement ce type d'acquisition: Challenges a eu accès récemment aux comptes de l'entreprises, lesquels indiquent que le résultat net 2012 ressort à 1,56 milliard de dollars pour un chiffre d’affaires de 6,3 milliards de dollars, soit une rentabilité impressionnante de 25%, et que la valorisation de l'entreprise a été multipliée par trois entre 2009 et 2012.

Il s'agit en quelque sorte d'un retour aux sources pour Coty, puisque ce parfumeur américain est d'origine française: le parfumeur François Coty avait fondé sa première usine en 1904 à Suresnes, avant de faire fortune et de mourir ruiné en 1934. Sa société deviendra ensuite américaine.

 

Le communiqué de presse des deux entreprises indique que "la proposition est soumise aux conditions de clôture habituelles, y compris les autorisations réglementaires. Les instances représentatives du personnel concerné seront consultés avant de conclure un accord définitif."

Purchase of Nocibé by Douglas Group finalised | beauty | Scoop.it

"German perfume and cosmetics chain extends its position in Europe"

Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

Douglas Holding has completed the purchase of Nocibé, a French perfume chain. According to information released by the company, Al Perfume France SAS took over the French perfume chain Nocibé according to plan. Al Perfume France is a company indirectly controlled by the shareholders of Douglas Holding. The transaction was approved by the French cartel authorities.

 

The Douglas Group is owned by Advent International and by its founders, the Kreke family; its aim is significantly to extend its position as the leading perfume and cosmetics chain in Europe with the take-over of Nocibé. The acquisition of Nocibé creates the largest perfume chain in France, with almost 600 branches. The combined company is the second largest in France when it comes to turnover.

 

"As specialised perfume chains, the two companies perfectly complement each other and will be offering future customers a clearly expanded product range with a number of exclusive fragrances and cosmetics products, an attractive range of own brands and extensive services," the company reported.

Premium Beauty News - Sensory 2014: emotion, the key factor of marketing success?

Premium Beauty News - Sensory 2014: emotion, the key factor of marketing success? | beauty | Scoop.it
Since it was created by the Cosmetic Valley, the Sensory congress has been considering emotions and the sensory from a global standpoint. For (...)
Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

“Emotions lie at the core of perception, communication, motivation and decision-making. They bear an influence on the sensory experience, and they promote action,” explained Arnaud Aubert, professor at the University of Tours, France. Emotional priming associated with sensory input thus seems to act on sensory feelings on a global level. “People who are made to see pleasant images such as baby faces for a few milliseconds will then pay increased attention to things,” specifies David Sander, Professor at the University of Geneva, Switzerland.

It has therefore become a strategic challenge to take consumers’ emotions into account. Several approaches seem possible, and everyone agrees with the fact that, as Arnaud Aubert states, “it is necessary to adopt a multidimensional approach with multidisciplinary research”

Europe looks stronger for L’Oréal, but strength of Euro leads to losses

Europe looks stronger for L’Oréal, but strength of Euro leads to losses | beauty | Scoop.it
L’Oréal has posted strong underling global results, with revenues in Western Europe also showing signs of recovery, but a strong Euro negates much of the gains.
Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

L’Oréal CEO Jean-Paul Agon pointed out that there were contrasts in the performance of the company’s four primary distribution channels – professional products, consumer products, luxe and active cosmetics.

The strongest performance came from the luxe division where revenues for the quarter were up by 7.5% to €1.44bn on particularly strong performances in the new markets, most notably in China.

However, growth was slowest in the professional products division, where sales grew by 2.2% for the quarter to reach €769.9m, where the company conceded that growth had been weaker than expected in the Asia Pacific region.

Euromonitor: UK is the “fastest growing luxury beauty market in Western Europe”

Euromonitor: UK is the “fastest growing luxury beauty market in Western Europe” | beauty | Scoop.it
Factors such as the Royal Wedding and Olympic fever greatly boosted prestige beauty spending in 2012, pushing if far above the regional average. Now, a Euromonitor report reveals how companies can take advantage of this trend.
Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

Especially in skin care, pharmacy brands and natural brands from mainland Europe, more companies have expanded to the UK. They are getting a lot of attention from retailers around the world and a lot more brands are now available. The North is also becoming a big driver of growth.

 

British luxury beauty grew by around 7% in 2012 to reach a value of €800, far higher than the regional average growth of 3%, driven largely by domestic demand. Companies such as Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols have introduced innovations such as limited editions and exclusive launches in prestige beauty stores, which have helped to drive growth.

 

Euromonitor’s research shows a bright future for the industry, revealing that UK beauty is expected to “add the most value” in the region to luxury beauty sales over the next five years, with an estimated CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 6% compared to an average of 2%.

Parfum masculin : Invictus, Paco Rabanne dans l'arène | beauty | Scoop.it

Après 1 Million il y a cinq ans, Paco Rabanne livre une nouvelle partition très attendue au rayon parfums masculins. Avec Invictus (invaincu en latin), la marque du groupe Puig investit le territoire du sport à sa manière : pas le sportif en pleine action, comme dans Allure Homme Sport de Chanel par exemple, mais le champion après l’effort qui reçoit son trophée.

Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

La fragrance, signée Véronique Nyberg d’IFF, est un bouquet frais très masculin où dominent un accord marin et de l’ambre gris pour un effet peau salée, charpenté par du bois de gaïac et du patchouli, sur un départ d’écorce de pamplemousse et de feuilles de laurier.

As an investigating magistrate hired by the Paris prosecutor’s office begins to look into Hermès’ complaints against LVMH, the French brand is holding its ground to not only prevent a silent takeover, but likely to please family stakeholders who do not wish to operate under the conglomerate. It seems that Hermès will continue to fight for its private status, rather than reap the potential benefits of being part of the group.

Coty Offers to Buy Chanel's Bourjois Cosmetics Brand

Coty Offers to Buy Chanel's Bourjois Cosmetics Brand | beauty | Scoop.it
The all-share proposal is valued at $239 million and would help Coty bolster its presence in Western Europe.
Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

Coty Inc. said on Tuesday that it had made a binding offer to buy the Bourjois cosmetics brand from Chanel for 15 million Coty shares, or about $239 million.

 

Chanel has agreed to enter into exclusive negotiations, the companies said in a statement.

 

Bart Becht, the chairman and interim chief executive of Coty, said the acquisition would help his company bolster its presence in Western Europe.

 

“We are looking forward to having the Bourjois brand as part of our portfolio of leading beauty products, as well as welcoming Chanel as a Coty shareholder,” Mr. Becht said in the statement. “Bourjois’ brands are highly complementary to Coty’s existing color cosmetics portfolio.”

 

Michael Rena, a Chanel representative, said: “We are excited about the potential opportunities that joining with Coty could present for Bourjois. Coty and Bourjois share a passion for color cosmetics and together they would have strong potential to further advance their leadership in this attractive global category. We intend to examine the offer in more detail and enter constructive talks with Coty.”

 

Bourjois was founded in 1863 by the French actor Joseph-Albert Ponsin, who developed a line of color cosmetics for his fellow actors, according to the statement.

Consumers Are Secure, Spending

Consumers Are Secure, Spending | beauty | Scoop.it

Nearly three out of every four consumers say they're spending as much or more than they expected on life's little extras—including hairstyling, manicures and pedicures, and fashion accessories, reports the latest American Express Spending & Saving Tracker released Sept. 23.

Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

Furthermore, 81% of employed Americans report that their jobs are more than or just as stable as one year ago—and 45% expect finances to change for the better in the next six months.

 

“As Americans feel more secure about their jobs and finances, they tend to spend more on personal items,” said David Rabkin, senior vice president of consumer lending products at American Express. “Our survey respondents report that they’re spending more or the same on some big-ticket items that they may have deferred during the last few years.”

 

With 2014 coming to a close, 62% of Americans say they’re planning to make large purchases before the end of the year; 42% of consumers report having already purchased big-ticket items this year.

 

Consumers have also encountered some unforeseen expenditures this year as reported by 47% of survey participants, with car trouble topping the list (46%), followed by healthcare (44%), home-related improvements and repairs (32%) and education (13%).

 

While Americans are buying more big-ticket items, they say they’ve also spent on smaller discretionary items, reportedly spending more than last year across a variety of categories, which they consider “selfie spends.” Overall, they have spent more on self-maintenance than previous years (34% vs. 27% in 2013), specifically making more purchases in health and fitness (24% vs. 20% in 2013) and grooming/hygiene (20% vs. 16% in 2013).

 

As a result of these increases in spending, piggy banks are feeling lighter this year as Americans report having saved less this year than last year ($7,153 vs. $9,944 at this time in 2013). As one might expect, consumers are still searching for deals with 85% saying they check for discounts at least once a week. The top ways in which they're looking for discounts and coupons include email promotions from retailers (19%); coupon aggregator sites (18%); group buying sites (18%); and social media (12%), among other resources (6%). In fact, 35% say they look for discounts once a day or more often.

Premium Beauty News - Russia: sales of cosmetics keep on fast-growth path | beauty | Scoop.it
While increasingly mature, the Russian perfumery and cosmetics market continues to record impressive growth figures, in particular when compared (...)
Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

In 2013, the Russian cosmetics and perfumery market grew by 11% and approached USD 15 billion (EUR 11,1 billion). Figures provided by Rosstat, the Russian Federation’s State Statistics Service draw a similar picture: sales of perfumery and cosmetic goods would have grown by 14.1% in 2013 versus 13.2% in 2012.

Such outcomes are really impressive particularly when compared with the European market where sales of cosmetic products showed a 0.8% drop in 2014. Figures in some individual EU member states are even worse: the Spanish and Greek markets declined by 3.6%, the Italian market by 1.2% and France by 0.4%, while Germany, the biggest market within the EU, has demonstrated a modest upturn of 0.6%.

LVMH gives a new dimension to its perfumes and cosmetics R&D

LVMH gives a new dimension to its perfumes and cosmetics R&D | beauty | Scoop.it

LVMH inaugurated last week its new R&D dedicated to perfumes and cosmetics. Named Helios, in reference to the sun that illuminates the atrium of the building and which is also a key element of skin research, this new campus will become the flagship of the group’s scientific research in cosmetology.

 

 

Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

Approximately 250 researchers today, nearly 300 in a near future, 1,200 new product formulas developed each year and a portfolio of 200 patents: LVMH Recherche is spearheading the development of the French luxury giant in the field of perfumes and cosmetics. The inauguration on November 18 of its new premises, located on the site of the Parfums Christian Dior plant, in Saint-Jean-de-Braye, near Orléans (France’s Cosmetic Valley), emphasises the importance of perfumes and cosmetics within the group’s global growth strategy.

 

With 55 hectares, the site of Parfums Christian Dior is one of the largest areas dedicated to perfumes and luxury cosmetics in France.

 

LVMH has invested over 30 million euros in the construction and development of this new centre, which is fully operational since the end of October. Over 20 key areas of expertise are gathered on the site, including molecular and cell biology, physical chemistry, ethnobotany, sensory analysis, formulation and histology, as well as safety and efficiency control, regulatory compliance, sensory evaluation and market trends monitoring, among others.

Beauty Business To See Ecommerce Rise 30%

Beauty Business To See Ecommerce Rise 30% | beauty | Scoop.it

One example of increased convenience is the auto-replenishment model, which encourages shoppers to subscribe to periodical auto-shipments of products.

 

 

Enoal Le Roc'h's insight:

According to estimates, 44% of the e-commerce sites offered auto-replenishment, this year, compared to just 22% in 2011. Yet the health of the beauty industry has perpetuated an "arms race" across both traditional media investment and digital channels.

 

Estée Lauder has made aggressive investments in its online division, while L’Oréal increased its domestic media budget to $1.5 billion last year, and has indicated that digital -- as a percentage of spend -- has grown double digits annually since 2010.

 

Procter & Gamble, whose beauty business has stalled, recently indicated that 25%-to-35% of its media budget is allocated to digital, and that it views investments online and a renewed focus on product innovation as key to turning the tide.
