    Luxury cosmetics and Chinese demand drive sales bounce at L'Oreal

    L'Oreal, the world's biggest cosmetics company, beat third quarter sales expectations on Thursday thanks to surging demand from Chinese consumers and strong appetite for Lancome and its other luxury brands. Robust revenue growth in L'Oreal's high-end skincare and make-up ranges helped offset a sluggish performance in its mass market products, echoing a mixed earnings season for rivals who compete in some of these areas, such as Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) . France's L'Oreal said demand from Chinese buyers - not just at home but in airport stores or other countries - had in particular driven growth, with younger consumers lapping up luxury products.

    Nestle targets profit margin to satisfy investor hunger

    LONDON/ZURICH, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Nestle (Swiss: NESN.VX - news) set a profit margin target for the first time on Tuesday, responding to an industry slowdown and pressure from activist investor Third Point for greater near-term returns from the world's largest packaged food company. While many multinationals turned to cost-cutting, inspired by industry-leading margins at Kraft-Heinz, Nestle and rival Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) had argued that cutting too deep to deliver margin growth is a short-term solution.

    Activist Loeb keeps up performance pressure on Nestle -source

    Activist investor Daniel Loeb is keeping up pressure on Nestle by sharing views with the company as part of a regular dialogue, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters. Nestle, Europe's most valuable public company, announced a 20 billion Swiss franc ($21 billion) share buyback programme last month coupled with a plan to increase leverage and prioritise acquisitions in high-growth areas as it battles slowing demand for packaged food. The move came just two days after the billionaire hedge fund manager urged Nestle to more aggressively improve returns as his Third Point fund revealed a $3.5 billion stake that made it Nestle's eighth-largest shareholder.

    ZURICH/LONDON, June 28 (Reuters) - Nestle's plan to shore up its capital structure, announced only days after being thrust into the spotlight by activist shareholder Third Point, was received by investors as a precursor to bigger changes under the company's new leadership. Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) in the world's largest foodmaker rose as much as 2 percent on Wednesday, close to the record high touched on Monday after the New York-based hedge fund disclosed a $3.5 billion stake and urged Nestle to buy back shares, set a target for margin growth and shed non-core assets including its stake in L'Oreal. It added that the measures were the result of a review instigated at the start of the year after Mark Schneider took over as chief executive.

    Nestle plans $20.8 bln share buyback amid Third Point pressure

    LONDON/ZURICH, June 27 (Reuters) - Nestle plans to buy back as much as 20 billion Swiss francs ($20.8 billion) worth of shares over three years, it said on Tuesday, days after U.S. activist shareholder Third Point LLC began a campaign to boost performance at the company. The New York-based hedge fund, controlled by billionaire investor Daniel Loeb, disclosed a $3.5 billion stake in the company late on Sunday when it started pushing for Nestle to more aggressively boost performance and buy back shares. Nestle, maker of Gerber baby food and Perrier water, said its announcement was the result of a review of its priorities that had begun in early 2017.

    Third Point leans on Dutch turnaround expert for Nestle push

    AMSTERDAM/LONDON, June 26 (Reuters) - When billionaire activist investor Daniel Loeb wanted to give his arguments against Nestle (Swiss: NESN.VX - news) 's performance greater credibility and heft, he turned to one of Europe's most experienced turnaround experts, Dutchman Jan Bennink. Loeb's fund, Third Point LLC, disclosed a $3.5 billion stake in the Swiss food group in a letter to its investors late on Sunday in which he said Nestle should boost margins, buy back shares and get rid of non-core businesses including a 23 percent stake in L'Oreal. "Jan has direct operating experience in four of Nestle's key categories: coffee, baby food, medical nutrition, and dairy, as well as an unimpeachable record of substantial shareholder value creation," Third Point said in its letter.
