Solid update but probably not enough to save the reputations of the Chairman and Chief Executive. Still anticipating M & A activity here once the BREXIT fiasco resolves itself in one way or another.

I added on the dip, looked a solid update to me.

The very last development we want is an acquisition spree. In beauty they have bought multiple niche brands like dermalogica, which have struggled to grow. Trying to ignite some growth in this category would be a good place to start. Net debt is already over £20 Billion.

The recent newspaper column inches devoted to the Unilever vote story is overwhelming and almost universally hostile to the Board. As night follows day this will almost certainly put Unilever into play. Personally, I am not quite sure whether I prefer this prospect or a new board embarking on a potentially risky spending spree!

Amazon to double down on own label brands, reports this weekend. Not surprises there.

Amazing result. Retiring boss has lost all credabilty. It was all a reaction to US takeover attempt and wanting to retrench to Dutch jurisdiction that gives enhanced ( xenophobic ) protection from hostile takeover that may generate enhanced shareholder value. .

Great news for the UK stock market. Losing Unilever from the FTSE 100 would have been a regressive step. The Board needs to take a long hard look on why they were recommending something that wasn’t in the interests of shareholders as a whole. That’s Aviva and Unilever in a matter of months that have made enormous self inflicted errors of judgement.

There was no "Victory for Individual Shareholders". The majority of PIs are on platforms so will probably have counted for about 20 in total yes your nominee may be kind enough to aggregate all the votes for people responding on their platform but that was still only one holder, the nominee We were lucky, as individual shareholders we were disenfranchised and continue to be so.

I'm guessing BlackRock must have been against.

Pejaten - Thanks for the update, it's been 20 years since I looked out at the Blackfriars building from my bus on the way home to the country at the end of each week. You are absolutely right, this proposed move of HQ was never about headcount, it may have been about tax, or ego, but most likely 'takeover proofing' (Not sure if that is the correct terminolgy) Let us hope that this has shown that the board do listen to their shareholders (Well the larger ones anyway) The very best way to avoid an unwelcome takeover is surely to keep all your shareholders informed and updated in a regular way. There will always be the likes of Kraft lerking in the background but the ULVR board should not fear them if they are doing a good job and they keep talking to their shareholders. As many have said above it would be nice if the board could engage a bit more with all their small shareholders who do (In total) represent an important factor.

Ha ha. Actually UK head office is in Leatherhead, personally I doubt they will sell the HO. Must tell you that most employees whether European or not far prefer to be located in UK than the port city of Rotterdam, so I cannot see massive shifts to there. You can argue that this move was more around Paul Polman being Dutch, or his ego, to make UNILEVER takeover proof or to reduce tax besides the stated reasons. Do not think it was ever about reducing people even further than is being done already.

irenekent - London head office will have to stay but I'm betting it will be a lot smaller in future years. Probably sell that big office near Blackfriars and move out to Romford or some other less 'posh' place haha.

Polman's judgement is seriously called into question and indeed that of the rest of the board. I wonder if the Marmite will still go to Rotterdam with the rest of the food division; and what about the London head office?

irenekent - "hopefully the government will be forced to take speedy action to sort this mess out. One lives in hope." One does indeed 'live in hope' haha. I agree with you and others that this move is not good for UK shareholders and also agree that ALL small shareholders should have more of a voice on company boards. Just to clarify, I'm not happy about the ULVR proposals either. It just so happens that for various reasons I needed to move my ULVR holding into my ISA. I couldn't do all of that in one tax year and anyway I thought the share price would drop if the proposals were voted through. So I sold, the share price has dropped, and I'm sort of watching from the sidelines for now. It's beginning to look like the vote may go against the board, in which case (If I'm lucky) I may be able to buy back part of my holding in my ISA and even make a few quid haha.

The directors should withdraw this proposal before it goes to the ballot. It is pretty obvious that in the UK there is a wall of opposition to this which will not go away, even if the vote is won by the board. It appears that the directors thought they could take advantage of the arcane practises in the UK to win the vote without anyone realising what was happening. The government should immediately act to change the law and demand that the vote is cancelled until all shareholders can have a vote.
