Newell Brands Inc

The Company is a global manufacturer and full-service marketer of name-brand consumer products serving the needs of volume purchasers, including department/specialty stores and warehouse clubs, home centers and hardware stores, and office superstores and contract stationers. The Company's basic business strategy is to merchandise a multi-product offering of everyday consumer products, backed by an obsession with customer service excellence and new product development, in order to achieve maximum results for its stockholders.

The Company is driving its strategy, the Growth Game Plan, into action and simplifying its structure through the execution of Project Renewal, making sharper portfolio choices and investing in new marketing and innovation to accelerate performance. In the Growth Game Plan operating model, the Company has reorganized around two core activity systems, Development and Delivery, supported by three business partnering functions, Human Resources, Finance/IT and Legal, and four winning capabilities in Design, Marketing & Insight, Supply Chain and Customer Development, all in service to drive accelerated performance in the Company’s five segments. The Company’s five business segments and the key brands included in each segment are as follows:

Writing: Sharpie®, Paper Mate®, Expo®, Prismacolor®, Parker®, Waterman® , Dymo® Office and Endicia®
Home Solutions: Rubbermaid®, Calphalon®, Levolor® and Goody®
Tools: Irwin®, Lenox®, hilmorTM and Dymo® Industrial
Commercial Products: Rubbermaid Commercial Products® and Rubbermaid® Healthcare
Baby & Parenting: Graco®, Aprica® and Teutonia®

 

The Company's six transformational strategic initiatives are as follows: Productivity, Streamlining, New Product Development, Marketing, Strategic Account Management, and Collaboration.

Productivity is the initiative to reduce the cost of manufacturing a product by at least five percent per year, every year in order to become the best cost supplier. Streamlining is the commitment to reduce non-value added costs and cut out excess layers. New Product Development represents the commitment to develop and introduce cutting-edge, innovative new products to the market and develop best-cost products to meet end-user needs. The Marketing initiative represents the Company's commitment to transform from a 'push' to 'pull' marketing organization, focusing on the end-user. The Strategic Account Management initiative represents the Company's program to allocate resources to those strategic retailers the Company believes will continue to grow in the future. Collaboration is the Company's initiative for the divisional operating units to work together and maximize economies of scale and the use of best practices.

Productivity

The Company's objective is to reduce the cost of manufacturing a product by at least five percent per year on an ongoing basis with the goal of becoming the best-cost supplier to our customers. To achieve productivity, the Company focuses on reducing purchasing costs, materials handling costs, manufacturing inefficiencies, and excess overhead costs to reduce the overall cost of manufacturing products.

The planned deployment of Newell Operational Excellence (NWL OPEX) throughout the Company's manufacturing network is aimed to deliver the Company's productivity targets. NWL OPEX is designed to be a methodical process focused on lean manufacturing which includes installing the right manufacturing and distribution metrics and driving improvements quarter after quarter. In addition to the cost reductions, other key components of NWL OPEX are improved quality and service levels and the reduction of inventory lead times.

Streamlining

The streamlining initiative represents the Company's commitment and focus on reducing non-value added activities and excess layers within the organization. The Company's goal is to use the savings generated from streamlining to fund marketing and other key initiatives, without increasing total expenses. The Company is vigilant in creating a leaner organization that is more flexible in its response time, both internally and externally.

New Product Development

The Company is determined to become the leader in introducing cutting-edge, innovative, and patented new products to the marketplace. The Company seeks to employ the best and brightest new product engineers in order to achieve this goal through the implementation and execution of a world-class product development process. The Company's intention is to become a 'new product machine' that will enhance the brand image and help secure additional store listings.

Marketing

The Company's objective is to develop long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with its customers and become their supplier of choice. To achieve this goal, the Company has a value-added marketing program that offers a family of leading brand name staple products, tailored sales programs, innovative merchandising support, in-store services and responsive top management.

The Company's marketing skills help customers stimulate store traffic and sales through timely advertising and innovative promotions. The Company also assists customers in differentiating their offerings by customizing products and packaging. Through self-selling packaging and displays that emphasize good-better-best value relationships, retail customers are encouraged to trade up to higher-value, best quality products.

The Company is also committed to selective media advertising, including national television advertising where appropriate, in order to increase brand awareness among end-users of the product.

Customer service also involves customer contact with top-level decision makers at the Company's divisions. As part of its decentralized structure, the Company's division presidents are the chief marketing officers of their product lines and communicate directly with customers. This structure permits early recognition of market trends and timely response to customer problems.

Phoenix Program

The marketing effort focuses largely on an extensive grass roots marketing campaign, highlighted by our Phoenix Program, which was introduced in 2001. This initiative is an action-oriented field sales force consisting of recent university graduates. The team works in the field, primarily within our Strategic Account structure, performing in-store product demonstrations, event marketing, on-shelf merchandising, interacting with the end-user, and maintaining an ongoing relationship with store personnel. This initiative allows the Company to enhance product placement and minimize stock outages and, together with the Strategic Account Management Program, to maximize shelf space potential.

Strategic Account Management

The Strategic Account Management Program is the Company's sales and marketing approach that focuses growth efforts on strategic accounts with high long-term growth potential. Separate sales organizations have been established to more effectively manage the relationship at the largest strategic accounts, specifically Wal'Mart, The Home Depot and Lowe's. As part of this program, the Company established President level positions to more effectively manage the relationships with these accounts. The program allows the Company to present these customers with 'one face' to enhance the Company's response time, understand the customer's needs and support the best possible customer relationship.

Collaboration

Collaboration represents the Company's focus to benefit from the sharing of best practices and the reduction of costs achieved through economies of scale. For example, functions, such as purchasing and distribution and transportation, have been centralized to increase buying power across the Company.

Additionally, certain administrative functions are centralized at the corporate level including cash management, accounting systems, capital expenditure approvals, order processing, billing, credit, accounts receivable, data processing operations and legal functions. Centralization concentrates technical expertise in one location, making it easier to observe overall business trends and manage the Company's businesses.

Centralization concentrates technical expertise in one location, making it easier to observe overall business trends and manage the Company's businesses.

Competition

The Company competes with numerous other manufacturers and distributors of consumer products, many of which are large and well-established. The Company's principal customers are large mass merchandisers, such as discount stores, home centers, warehouse clubs and office superstores. The rapid growth of these large mass merchandisers, together with changes in consumer shopping patterns, have contributed to a significant consolidation of the consumer products retail industry and the formation of dominant multi-category retailers, many of which have strong bargaining power with suppliers.

This environment significantly limits the Company's ability to recover cost increases through selling prices. Other trends among retailers are to foster high levels of competition among suppliers, to demand that manufacturers supply innovative new products and to require suppliers to maintain or reduce product prices and deliver products with shorter lead times. Another trend, in the absence of a strong new product development effort or strong end-user brands, is for the retailer to import generic products directly from foreign sources.

The combination of these market influences has created an intensely competitive environment in which the Company's principal customers continuously evaluate which product suppliers to use, resulting in pricing pressures and the need for strong end-user brands, the ongoing introduction of innovative new products and continuing improvements in customer service.

Newell Brands Inc

Chemicals, Plastics & Rubber Company Struggles in Challenging Business Environment

Lower demand has had a negative impact on Newell Brands Inc's financial performance in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2023, resulting in dwindling revenue and a greater deficit. The company managed to decrease its loss per share to $-0.21, compared to the previous quarter when it reported a loss of $-0.53 per share. Revenue dropped by -9.147% to $2.08 billion year on year.
In the same quarter a year ago, the company had a net deficit of $-272.000 million, but this has improved significantly to $-86.000 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2023. This positive trend can partly be attributed to the decrease in inventories, indicating a decline in future demand, and the decline in accounts receivable, which suggests slowing demand according to some analysts.
