(Reuters) - VF Corp (VFC.N), one of the world’s biggest apparel makers, will spin off Lee and Wrangler jeans into a separate public company, it said on Monday, allowing it tampa bay rays cufflinks to focus on its more profitable Vans sneakers and The North Face outerwear businesses, Denims were responsible for more than half of VF’s overall profit in 2000, but have since been outpaced by skateboarder favorite Vans, which has driven much of VF’s recent growth, The spin-off, expected to be completed in the first half of 2019, will also give VF more flexibility to pursue acquisitions and explore new business areas..
However, investors reacted coolly to the news, with VF’s shares falling nearly 4 percent to $92.53 on Monday afternoon. The stock has risen roughly 20 percent year to date. While VF’s activity-based outdoor products business saw profit jump 15 percent in the year that ended in March, earnings from jeans slipped nearly 13 percent in the same period, as big outlets including Walmart Inc (WMT.N) turned to their own denim brands. “(Jeans) has been the weak link in the portfolio,” Jane Hali, head of investment research firm Jane Hali & Associates, said via email. “Now they can concentrate on the outdoor coalition and Vans, a much more unified and strong stable of brands.”.
The new VF, which already sold off apparel brand Nautica last tampa bay rays cufflinks year, will have annual revenue of more than $11 billion, compared to just over $2.5 billion for the jeans unit, which includes Wrangler, Lee, Rustler and Rock & Republic, The jeans company will focus on maintaining shareholders’ dividends, cutting debt and increasing sales in China and other Asian markets, Acquisitions of smaller firms are a longer-term possibility, VF said, However, the new spun-off retailer could face headwinds related to changing tastes - with some consumers souring on jeans - and U.S, negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement, said Ed Gribbin, U.S.-based CEO of apparel business and product development consulting firm Alvanon..
“If NAFTA were to go away, that would be a significant challenge for them in the denim business,” Gribbin said. The jeans division is heavily invested in Mexico. VF will shift base to Denver while the still-to-be-named jeans maker will move to the company’s traditional base in Greensboro, North Carolina and be led by Scott Baxter, currently president of VF’s Americas West group. Baxter led VF’s jeans business from 2011 to 2015. VF, which has a market value of about $38 billion, projected a 5-cent hit to current-quarter earnings per share due to the deal.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Independent music labels group Impala has called on EU antitrust regulators to block Sony Corp’s bid to become the world’s largest music publisher with its $2.3 billion offer for control of EMI, saying the combination would have too much market power, Sony announced the deal in tampa bay rays cufflinks May, the boldest strategy move by its new CEO Kenichiro Yoshida, which would give it rights to 2.1 million songs from artists such as Drake, Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams and Sia, The Japanese conglomerate, which currently owns a 30 percent stake in EMI, wants to buy Mubalada Investment Co’s 60 percent stake, Last month, it acquired the estate of Michael Jackson’s minority share of EMI..
The growing popularity of fixed-price music streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, SoundCloud and YouTube has boosted the industry. Sony’s control of EMI would give it the power to do what it wants, said Helen Smith, Impala’s executive chair. “The market needs big operators, but not when they are allowed to acquire so much power that they start to strangle it and squeeze out the independents who are the ones taking the risks,” she said, adding that 80 percent of new releases come from independent labels.
She said the deal tampa bay rays cufflinks would give Sony the clout to negotiate online rights for both its recording and publishing catalogs, promote its global repertoire both on radio and in playlists, and be better able to attract songwriters with better terms, There was also a risk that Sony might focus more on bigger-selling Anglo-American hits rather than local songs, Smith said, “Blocking seems to be the only outcome as it is difficult to see how remedies could help in this case,” she said, Impala plans to submit its comments to the European Commission this week..
