Newell Brands News:
Newell Brands Inc, the company that produces Sharpie markers, has forecasted annual sales and profit at the low end of its previous outlook. The announcement indicates that the company is facing challenges from the softer demand for its products and higher costs. While the supply chain issues are gradually easing, the Atlanta-based firm is still struggling with the elevated costs of raw materials, as well as slowing demand for its home and outdoor products such as containers and camping gear, following a pandemic-induced boom.
Newell’s projections for 2023 net sales and adjusted profit are expected to be at the lower end of its prior range of $8.4 billion to $8.6 billion and $0.95 to $1.08 per share, respectively. Additionally, the company forecasts second-quarter results below analysts’ estimates, with sales between $2.13 billion and $2.24 billion and profit between 10 cents and 18 cents per share. This is in contrast to analysts’ expectations of revenue of $2.2 billion and profit of 38 cents per share.
The challenges faced by Newell Brands are reflective of the wider struggles experienced by companies globally due to the ongoing pandemic. Supply chain disruptions, higher raw material costs, and softening demand have all impacted businesses across various sectors. The rise of e-commerce and changing consumer preferences are also playing a role in shaping the industry landscape.
