Mantan kepala Quaker Oats mengambil kendali di 3M

Morrison yang berusia 62 tahun, anggota dewan 3M, ditunjuk untuk sementara menggantikan James McNerney Jr., yang Kamis ditunjuk sebagai ketua dan CEO Boeing Co yang berbasis di Chicago.

Morrison bergabung dengan Quaker pada tahun 1997 setelah tiga tahun menduduki posisi puncak di Kraft Foods Co. Mantan pemegang saham Quaker memuji Morrison dengan memimpin perubahan haluan perusahaan yang menghasilkan penjualannya ke PepsiCo Inc. pada tahun 2000 dengan premi 120 persen.

Namun, dia belum terlibat dalam operasi sehari-hari perusahaan sejak mengundurkan diri dari PepsiCo pada tahun 2003.

Morrison, yang mengatakan tim pencari telah dibentuk untuk mempertimbangkan kandidat "dalam dan luar", berusaha meyakinkan Wall Street bahwa 3M akan terus melampaui ekspektasi pasar.

Dia berkata bahwa dia "yakin bahwa tim yang tepat dan rencana yang tepat telah siap untuk mewujudkan potensi kami."

Namun, saham 3M turun hampir 5 persen, atau $3,74, menjadi $72,30, di New York Stock Exchange setelah pengumuman kepergian McNerney.

Morrison juga merupakan anggota dewan Aon Corp., Illinois Tool Works Inc. dan Tribune Co., yang memiliki Chicago Tribune.


Fakta Sejarah Hitam yang Sedikit Diketahui: Sejarah Bibi Jemima

Pada tahun 1890, seorang mantan budak bernama Nancy Green dipekerjakan untuk menjadi juru bicara untuk Bibi Jemima produk makanan merek.

Nancy Green lahir dalam perbudakan pada tahun 1834 di Montgomery County, Kentucky. Pada tahun 1889 pencipta Bibi Jemima, Charles Rutt dan Charles Underwood, menjual perusahaan tersebut kepada R.T Davis, yang segera menemukan Nancy Green di Chicago. Pemilik sebelumnya sudah menyetujui 'tampilan' bandana dan celemeknya. Davis menggabungkan tampilan Bibi Jemima dengan nada catchy dari sirkuit Vaudeville untuk membuat merek Bibi Jemima.

Identitas Green pertama kali terungkap di Pameran Kolumbia Dunia pada tahun 1893. Ada begitu banyak orang yang tertarik dengan pameran Bibi Jemima, polisi dipanggil untuk mengendalikan massa. Green menyajikan panekuk untuk ribuan orang. Orang-orang menyukai kepribadiannya yang hangat dan sikapnya yang ramah, belum lagi masakannya. Green diberi penghargaan untuk kecakapan memainkan pertunjukan di eksposisi.

Atas dedikasinya, Bibi Jemima menerima 50.000 pesanan untuk pancake mix. Tidak hanya penjualan tepung melonjak, tetapi Green menerima kontrak seumur hidup untuk menjadi juru bicara. Dia adalah legenda hidup merek sampai dia meninggal dalam kecelakaan mobil pada bulan September 1923.

Setelah Green meninggal, pemilik Bibi Jemima, R.T. Davis, mengalami masalah keuangan dan merek tersebut dijual ke Quaker Oats dua tahun kemudian.

Adapun gambar Bibi Jemima, Nancy Green diikuti oleh Anna Robinson, yang gambarnya diubah menjadi potret yang dilukis pada kemasan campuran. Berikutnya adalah penyanyi dan aktris blues Chicago Edith Wilson. Dia adalah Bibi Jemima pertama yang muncul di iklan televisi.

Setelah Wilson ada Ethel Ernestine Harper, mantan guru sekolah dan aktris. Bibi Jemima keempat adalah Rosie Hall yang merupakan karyawan periklanan di Quaker Oats sampai dia menemukan kebutuhan mereka akan Bibi Jemima yang baru. Setelah dia meninggal, makam Hall dinyatakan sebagai landmark bersejarah.

Selanjutnya, ada Aylene Lewis. Dia membuat penampilan pertama Bibi Jemima pada tahun 1955 di restoran Bibi Jemima di Disneyland. Wanita terakhir yang diketahui muncul sebagai Bibi Jemima di depan umum adalah Ann Short Harrington. Harrington akan tampil di televisi sebagai juru bicara merek di wilayah New York.


Dewan 3M Terjebak Karena Kontrak CEO

Ini adalah Post-it note yang mendesak untuk 3M Co. : Putuskan siapa yang bertanggung jawab.

Para direktur konglomerat telah gagal menyepakati rencana suksesi, meskipun kontrak Ketua dan Kepala Eksekutif George Buckley akan berakhir dalam sebulan ketika ia berusia 65 tahun, usia pensiun yang biasa bagi para eksekutif puncak di pabrik kertas tempel. Beberapa direktur ingin memperpanjang kontrak Mr. Buckley, sementara yang lain tidak, kata seseorang yang mengetahui situasi tersebut.

Mr Buckley tidak ingin pergi karena "dia mencintai pekerjaannya", kata orang itu.

Direktur independen utama Vance D. Coffman dan Edward M. Liddy, mantan CEO Allstate Corp., termasuk di antara anggota dewan yang lebih memilih untuk memperpanjang kontrak Mr. Buckley, mungkin selama satu tahun, kata sumber tersebut.

Tetapi beberapa direktur—dipimpin oleh Robert S. Morrison, mantan CEO Quaker Oats Co.—lebih memilih mempromosikan Chief Operating Officer Inge Thulin menjadi CEO karena takut dia akan melompat jika kontrak Mr. Buckley diperbarui, menurut orang tersebut.

Tribune investor could be pivotal

John W. Rogers Jr., the founder, chairman and chief investment officer of mutual fund company Ariel Capital Management, is an avowed admirer of investing superstar Warren E. Buffett, who once described his average holding period for a stock as “forever.”

Patience is the prime virtue at Ariel, whose company slogan is “slow and steady” and whose “deep-value” investing style involves seeking out-of-favor companies in out-of-favor industries, buying stock at a bargain price and holding on until the rest of the market figures it out. Rogers, 48, had patience drilled into him on the basketball court, as team captain at Princeton University under legendary coach Pete Carril, who took a highly disciplined, grind-it-out approach to the game.

“It is uncanny how his investing style mirrored Pete Carril’s offense,” said Alexander Wolff, a writer at Sports Illustrated who was a year ahead of Rogers at Princeton. He recalled that Rogers “had a campus-wide rep as a precocious stock picker” even then.

But patience has its limits, and Ariel’s patience has been tested by one of its largest holdings, Tribune Co., parent of the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers broadcast properties including KTLA-TV Channel 5 and the Chicago Cubs baseball franchise.

Tribune’s stock has lost nearly half its value since the 2000 acquisition of The Times’ former parent, Times Mirror Co. The anemic performance has helped drag down Ariel’s recent results, in turn causing some big Ariel investors to pull their money out. As of last week, the flagship Ariel Fund ranked 308th out of 321 funds in its peer group, with a one-year total return of 10.3%, as compared with a peer average of 17.03%, according to fund tracker Lipper Inc.

Although Tribune is by no means the worst laggard in his portfolio, Rogers may be in a unique position to do something about that investment.

Rogers’ office on the 29th floor of the lakefront Aon Center here is a five-minute walk from Tribune’s headquarters in the iconic Tribune Tower downtown. In his business and civic roles, the lifelong Chicagoan has ties with Tribune management and its board. Ariel also has more than a casual connection to David Geffen, one of three Los Angeles billionaires who has voiced an interest in buying The Times.

In a recent interview, Rogers acknowledged that he has been working behind the scenes to keep information flowing.

Tribune is under intense pressure to boost its stock price -- the same kind of pressure experienced by Knight Ridder Inc., which was the nation’s second-largest newspaper chain before it was sold and broken up this year. Shareholder discontent at Tribune burst into public view in June when the Chandler family of Los Angeles, which controls a nearly 20% stake and three of 11 seats on its board, chastised management for a “failed strategy” and called for aggressive action, including putting the company up for sale.

Tribune Chairman and Chief Executive Dennis J. FitzSimons and the board have since taken some conciliatory steps, including restructuring two Tribune-Chandler partnerships last month in a way that removed them as an impediment to more radical moves, such as a spinoff of the company’s 25 TV stations or the sale of The Times, the Cubs or other properties. The board also named a special committee of seven independent directors -- excluding FitzSimons and the three Chandler representatives -- to oversee management’s campaign to pump more life into the stock.

FitzSimons, however, has said he wants to devise strategies for the whole company before considering sales of individual assets, specifically The Times. People who know the members of the management team believe that they would be loath to part with The Times, the Cubs or cable TV network Superstation WGN. The Chandlers have said little since their public outburst in June, but a minimalist, stay-the-course approach probably wouldn’t satisfy them.

If Tribune’s destiny came down to a proxy vote, FitzSimons could count on the management-controlled McCormick Tribune Foundation, which owns about 11% of the company’s stock, the second-biggest stake after the Chandlers’.

But other big shareholders haven’t shown their hands, including Rogers, a talented card player who has competed in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.

Ariel holds 14.9 million shares, or 6%, of Tribune stock, just behind Baltimore-based T. Rowe Price (15.6 million shares) as the company’s biggest institutional owner. But where Tribune is concerned, Ariel is better connected.

For example, Ariel does its banking with Northern Trust Corp., whose chairman, William A. Osborn, heads the Tribune board’s special committee. Both Osborn and Rogers are active in the Chicago Urban League and in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, of which Osborn is chairman and Rogers a life trustee.

As a director of McDonald’s Corp., Rogers serves with Enrique Hernandez Jr., chairman of Pasadena-based Inter-Con Security Systems Inc. and another member of the Tribune committee. A third committee member, former Quaker Oats Co. CEO Robert S. Morrison, sits with Rogers on the board of insurance giant Aon Corp.

Ariel’s connections don’t stop at the Tribune boardroom. Rogers’ protegee and a fellow Princeton alum, Ariel President Mellody L. Hobson, 37, is a director of DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., along with Geffen, the studio’s co-founder. When Hobson visits Los Angeles, she sometimes stays at Geffen’s house.

Rogers called Hobson’s ties with Geffen “an interesting coincidence” but cautioned against reading too much into it.

“As a major shareholder in a company like Tribune, we get calls from private equity firms and wealthy individuals,” Rogers said. “It’s part of our job to engage in conversations.”

Although he shrugged off the notion that Ariel has been a conduit between Geffen or other interested parties and Tribune, Rogers said: “As we gain insight and information as to how people view the company, it’s important to bring those questions up” to management. “We might say, ‘Have you thought of this? Have you thought of that? Here’s what one person thinks such-and-such an asset is worth.’ ”

In its public statements to date, Ariel has sounded a pro-management theme.

Ariel Vice Chairman Charles K. Bobrinskoy, 47, who was a longtime investment banker at Salomon Bros. before joining Ariel, issued an approving statement last month when the board revamped the Chandler partnerships and created the special committee: “Ariel has continuously expressed confidence that the strong board and management of Tribune would take steps to realize the intrinsic value of the company.”

Bobrinskoy, who grew up with Rogers in the city’s Hyde Park section and worked with him as a peanut vendor at White Sox games, said several months ago that Tribune could be worth as much as $46 a share. The company’s shares closed Friday at $32.31, down 60 cents.

Today, with Tribune potentially facing an auction, Ariel has backed away from naming a target price. Rogers said only that the stock “is selling at a significant discount.”

Though he has been circumspect about prescribing how to achieve maximum value, Rogers departs from FitzSimons by focusing on the assets that could be sold individually.

“Look at Food Network and CareerBuilder and the Cubs,” he said. “There’s a robust interest in individual entities.”

CareerBuilder.com, 42.5% owned by Tribune, has emerged as the leading Internet job-search site and the most coveted of the company’s digital properties. The Cubs, though barely profitable and lackluster on the field, could command $500 million in a sale, some analysts estimate.

The Cubs and The Times exemplify “trophy properties” that might attract community-spirited or ego-driven buyers who would pay more than what the usual cash-flow analysis might imply.

“Tribune has more trophies than most companies,” Rogers said.

Ariel has seldom turned confrontational with its portfolio companies. It was more in character for Rogers to declare himself “extremely disappointed” last August when Career Education Corp., one of Ariel’s worst-performing stocks and the subject of a federal investigation, came out with subpar quarterly earnings that again bashed it on Wall Street.

“One of the things we discuss with our own board is how activist to be,” Rogers said. Because of Ariel’s “very constructive, positive dialogue” with FitzSimons and his management team, he has not felt “any inclination to be negative.”

“I don’t think he’s there to rock the boat or upset management,” Jeff Tjornehoj, a senior research analyst at Lipper, said of Rogers. “If he thought they were heading in a really wrong direction, he’d just get out.”


Former Quaker Oats Chairman Gets More Responsibility in Pepsi Shuffle

PepsiCo Inc. said it is reorganizing some business units to integrate Quaker Oats Co., in a structure that expands the role of the chairman of the recently acquired food and beverage maker.

Robert Morrison, Quaker's chairman, chief executive and president, will assume oversight of PepsiCo's Tropicana juice unit while remaining in Chicago and continuing to oversee most of Quaker's businesses in North America. Production of other PepsiCo juice and juice-based products, such as its Dole and SoBe lines, will be consolidated and put under his watch.

Oversight of Quaker's international businesses will be transferred to other PepsiCo units, while Quaker snacks, such as grain and cereal bars, will become part of a new convenience-food unit within PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North American division.

The reorganization at the Purchase, N.Y., food and beverage company suggests that Mr. Morrison, who is now also a PepsiCo vice chairman, will play an even more active role in running the newly expanded company than had been expected. Credited with engineering a major turnaround of Quaker Oats, Mr. Morrison, 59 years old, had pledged when the deal with PepsiCo was announced in December to remain with the combined company, retaining responsibility for the Quaker businesses for 18 months.

But spokesmen for both PepsiCo and Quaker said his added responsibilities fit with PepsiCo's original plans to integrate businesses with similar production and distribution. Combining Tropicana with the Quaker businesses will allow PepsiCo to maximize efficiency by forming one sales organization for those units and using Quaker's extensive distribution system to more quickly expand availability of Tropicana products, they said.

THE GLYPHOSATE SAFETY SAGA

Glyphosate is a herbicide used to kill weeds which was first registered for use in the US in 1974.

It is marketed either as a salt or an amber-colored liquid with no smell.

Monsanto markets glyphosate as part of the pesticide Roundup.

Several studies found that high doses administered to laboratory animals caused cancer, although the evidence is 'limited' when it comes to humans.

In March 2015, the World Health Organizatrion ranked glyphosate a Group 2a carcinogen, a substance that probably causes cancer in people.

In 2017, California added glyphosate to its proposition 65 list, which requires Roundup to carry a warning label if sold in California.

Monsanto has vehemently denied that its product causes cancer and says and more than 800 studies that have established its safety.

Yet more than 4,000 plaintiffs have filed lawsuits - 800 over the past year - claiming Monsanto made them or members of their family sick.

In the testing, done by the Health Research Institute, glyphosate concentrations are measured in nanograms per gram, which are equal to parts per billion.

'I was extremely alarmed at the results and parents should be warned,' Dr Mason told campaign website Beyond GM.

Dr Mason worked for decades as an NHS anaesthetist and was assistant editor of the medical journal, Anaesthesia.

Dr Alexis Temkin, a toxicologist at the EWG who worked on the report, says finding the chemical in cereals is disconcerting.

'The report shows that breakfast cereals are not a place for pesticides linked to cancer,' Dr Temkin told Daily Mail Online.

'Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's safe or that it provides that extra level of protection for children.

'What we show here is that there are detectable levels in common foods that children exposed to every day. Over a long period of time, that can be dangerous.'

The UK does not grow genetically modified crops to feed to humans, but the US does, and the practise has led to a rise in the use of glyphosate.

The chemical is, however, sprayed on picked crops around the world to help dry them out, and is used as a weedkiller by landscapers.

Gardener Dewayne Johnson, 46, from California, successfully sued Monsanto, which makes weedkiller Roundup for $78million (£60m) after claiming their product gave him terminal cancer.

A jury decided it was the glyphosate in the weedkiller which had left him with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Weetabix declined to comment – Kellogg's and Quaker did not respond to requests.
