    H&M Gets First Female CEO After Founding Family’s Missteps

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.Hennes & Mauritz AB appointed Helena Helmersson as the first female chief executive officer of the fast-fashion pioneer, taking over from founding family scion Karl-Johan Persson, who struggled to contain competition from cheaper rivals and online platforms that revolutionized shopping.Helmersson was previously head of operations, and Persson moves to the supervisory board after more than a decade, where he succeeds his father, Stefan Persson, as chairman. Stockholm-based H&M announced the changes as it reported quarterly earnings that beat analyst estimates, pushing the shares to their biggest gain in more than seven months.The stock move is a much-needed boost for investors who have watched H&M shares gain just 10% during Persson’s tenure, while rival Inditex, the owner of Zara, has surged almost fourfold in the period. Long the go-to place for Scandi-inspired, well-designed staples like blouses and jeans, H&M has ceded its pacemaker role to the likes of Primark that undercut it in price, or Internet specialists like Asos Plc and Zalando SE that promise instant gratification.Inditex also pioneered the concept of branching out into sub-brands for different tastes and budgets. H&M has emulated the idea with units including COS or Arket, which aim at a wide-ranging shopping experience, selling everything from clothing to make-up to home-decoration trinkets like candles and flower pots.When Persson, 44, took over in 2009, he was in his early 30s and had spent a few years on the company board, overseeing expansion, business development as well as brands and new business. At the time, H&M enjoyed major successes recruiting seasonal guest designers ranging from Karl Lagerfeld to Roberto Cavalli, collaborations that were huge hits because they offered luxury-fashion names at ultra-competitive prices.But the going got tougher over the years. Physical shops began looking outdated, the guest-designer concept was running out of force and acquisitions like Cheap Monday, the company’s first-ever, flopped. Moving into home decoration, a lucrative niche where Zara and more upmarket brands like Armani had long established themselves, proved hard, as was the shift to online. As a result, inventory built up, forcing the company into a series of missed targets and profit warnings in recent years.Family ControlThe Persson family retains outsize control over the company. Founded by Erling Persson in 1947, the family is by far the biggest shareholder and has steadily lifted its stake over the years, particularly after operational troubles depressed the stock. Stefan Persson, who took over from Erling, ran the business for more than a decade. He’s the richest Swede, and ranks 15th in Europe, with a net worth of about $19.7 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.Helmersson is herself a long-standing H&M employee. She started in 1997 as an economist in the company’s purchasing department, and did a five-year stint as sustainability manager. She’s been COO for just over a year.“I feel confident in handing over the CEO role to Helena, who is an experienced and great leader who embodies our values,” Persson said. “Helena will continue to work on the plan that we have adopted for 2020 and onwards.”Speaking in an interview, Helmersson said she wants to continue focusing on themes like digitization, sustainability and exploring new business models that may include second-hand clothing. “We have a fantastic advantage with our physical network, we need to see how we can develop that,” the new CEO said. “We have to look at the holistic growth picture.”The timing of the handover suggests H&M may be through the worst. The retailer said fewer markdowns contributed to an improvement in profit for the full year and in the fourth quarter, leading to a pretax profit of to 5.4 billion kronor ($561 million) in the three months through November, more than the 4.8 billion kronor that analysts had expected.Over the past year, shares in H&M have gained more than 35%, beating the OMX Stockholm index, which is up 19%. Of the 33 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg, seven recommend buying H&M stock, while the rest are advising clients to either hold on to the shares they have or sell.(Updates with comment from new CEO in 11th paragraph.)\--With assistance from Tom Keene and Francine Lacqua.To contact the reporters on this story: Anton Wilen in Stockholm at awilen@bloomberg.net;Benedikt Kammel in Berlin at bkammel@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Veronica Ek at vek@bloomberg.net, Thomas MulierFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    LIVE MARKETS-Utilities: flying like a FANG

    * Eyes on BoE meeting: rate cut hangs in balance Welcome to the home for real-time coverage of European equity markets brought to you by Reuters stocks reporters and anchored today by Danilo Masoni. Utilities aren't the sexiest industry on the market but over the last month or so they had returns similar to the high-flying FANGs on Wall Street, if not even higher. Surely, worries over economic growth are pushing investors into old-fashioned bond proxies but perhaps there more into it, as climate change fosters huge transformations in the industry and reshapes the whole economy.

There was no Fed change overnight to counter concerns over damage from the spreading new China virus and after a two-day bounce European shares are set to resume their slide from record levels. More Q4 earnings will also be on the radar and Deutsche Bank posting a larger-than-expected annual loss, its fifth in a row as Germany's top bank undergoes a costly overhaul, isn't exactly a good start to the day.

    From beer to beauty, sales of vegan products surging with UK consumers fuelling the rise

    From vegan burgers to vegan boots, the market for products using no animal products is surging, with climate-conscious consumers in Britain fuelling the global dash to cash in on a fast- expanding range of ethical merchandise. With the 25th annual World Vegan Month starting on Nov. 1, Britain has overtaken Germany to become the nation with the highest number of new vegan food products launched in a year, according to market research firm Mintel. About 16% of food products launched in 2018 had a vegan claim, up from 8% in 2015, with the sector growing about 30 percent in the year to 740 million pounds ($955 million), the firm said.

    UPDATE 2-Euro zone shares edge higher on rally in Airbus, luxury stocks

    Euro zone shares made small gains on Thursday after their worst sell-off in two months a day earlier, as a rebound in Airbus and spirits makers outweighed the latest round of weak economic data from the euro zone and the United States. The blue-chip and wider STOXX 600 pan-European indexes sank almost 3% on Wednesday after the World Trade Organization approved 10% U.S. tariffs on European-made Airbus planes and 25% duties on goods ranging from French wine to Scotch whisky.

    UPDATE 2-Ted Baker shares battered after CEO flags dire UK retail climate

    Shares in Ted Baker shed more than a third of their value on Thursday, after the British fashion retailer's second profit warning in four months on the back of what new boss Lindsay Page called the worst business conditions in decades. The warning underlines the challenges facing Page, who became chief executive officer in April, after misconduct allegations against Ted Baker founder and top shareholder Ray Kelvin. Ted Baker and other high-street retailers face several challenges: weak consumer demand brought on by political uncertainty related to Britain's departure from the European Union, heavy discounting and the shift to online shopping.
