    Trian urges Procter & Gamble to take action to improve underperformance

    Activist investor Trian Fund Management said Thursday that Procter & Gamble Co. needs to take action to address the "root causes" of an inconsistent performance, that has kept its returns to shareholders at less than half its peers in the last 10 years. The fund, headed by investor Nelson Peltz, said underperformance includes the loss of market shares across many categories and excessive costs. "While P&G says it is addressing the underperformance issue, shareholders have heard similar promises in the past and results have not materially improved. Trian believes P&G can once again be a best-in-class performer but it must take decisive action that goes above and beyond what it has previously announced, including committing to significantly changing its overly complex organizational structure and slow moving and insular culture." Trian said adding Peltz to the board would help with accountability, creating a sense of urgency and better cost management. Trian owns about $3.3 billion of P&G stock. The shares were up 2.6% in premarket trade, after the company posted fourth-quarter earnings that were above Wall Street expectations.

    P&G expresses 'complete support' for current strategy after activist investor wages proxy battle

    Procter & Gamble Co. said Monday in a statement that its board of directors was "confident" that the changes being made at the struggling consumer products giant were having results, and expressed "complete support" for the current strategy and management team. The statement was in response to activist investor Trian Fund Management L.P.'s call to elect its CEO Nelson Peltz on P&G's board to help accelerate the company's turnaround. Trian is P&G's fifth-largest shareholder, with 36.7 million shares, or 1.4% of the shares outstanding, according to FactSet. Trian said P&G's results over the past decade have been disappointing, and that the recent $10 billion cost-cutting program has had "no discernible impact" on results. "While the board is always willing to consider new ideas that may help drive profitable growth and enhance shareholder value, the board notes that Trian has not provided any new or actionable ideas to drive additional value for P&G shareholders beyond the continued successful execution of the strategic plan that is in place," P&G said in its statement. P&G's stock rallied 0.7% in midday trade. It has gained 2.0% over the past 12 months, while the SPDR Consumer Staples Select Sector ETF has lost 1.6% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has climbed 17%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
