Avon Job Cuts
March 15, 2016 by staff
Avon Job Cuts, Cosmetics maker Avon will cut about 2,500 jobs worldwide and shift its corporate headquarters to the UK as part of its three-year turnaround plan.
Avon shares were up nearly 4 percent at $4.55 in extended trading after the announcement on Monday.
The company sold most of its North American business to Cerberus Capital, its biggest investor, after four years of falling sales.
Avon said it expected to record $60 million in pre-tax charges related to job cuts in the first quarter.
The company, which has 28,300 employees, said the transition of its headquarters would occur over time.
In January, Avon had outlined plans to cut $350 million in costs over the next three years, invest in technology and tap social media to revive sales.
However, a bigger-than-expected fall in fourth-quarter sales indicated that the company had failed to revive demand for its cosmetics in key markets.
“We believe that there is still much more that needs to be done to improve the business as outlined in our December 3 letter,” shareholder Barington Capital said in a statement.
In December, investors led by Barington proposed a restructuring of Avon, and said they had lost confidence in the makeup brand’s leadership.
