Unilever has just acquired Alberto Culver, and according to Euromonitor International’s Beauty & Personal Care Industry Analyst Oru Mohiuddin, some analysts are asking why Unilever has made this move when the company had previously stated it wants to focus on emerging markets. According to Mohiuddin, the benefits of Unilever’s acquisition of Alberto-Culver are as follows:
Mohiuddin continues the discussion by stating that Unilever did not pay too much for Alberto-Culver. The price tag was large, but the global potential of the newly acquired brands are immensely beneficial to Unilever.
Lastly, it is expected that L’Oreal and Procter and Gamble will be going shopping for new acquisitions in response to Unilever’s move. Beiersdorf, the company behind the Nivea brand, could be next as a potential acquisition target.
