It happened today. Unilever announced that they have found a new CEO, in anticipation to the foreseen retirement of the current CEO at the end of this year.
In a financial market that was in decline, Unilever was one of the few stocks that climbed 1,23 euros more than 6%. When we multiply this with the number of outstanding shares of the company, we get the value of (about) 3 billion euros.
3 billion of euros is the value of this message. A simple anatomy could look like this.
– The value of a new CEO (60%). People think that a new manager on the steering wheel of a company is able to do what a predecessor could not achieve.
– A possible change of direction (40%). The new CEO comes from another company. In this case the expected change is more profound than if the CEO would come from within the company. It will constitute a change of directions, culture perhaps. Added to this could be the fact that the new CEO comes from the competition, Nestle.
