Unilever CEO sharply defends spending approach at investor event, Bloomberg says

Unilever CEO Paul Polman got testy with an analyst during an investor meeting in which he defended his approach to cost savings, margin improvement and sales growth amid the company's search for a new CEO, Bloomberg reports, citing the meeting. Following a question on whether the company may want to increase its brand-marketing spend at the expense of the margin, Polman said, "You've been telling us the margins were low for the first five years, and I've been telling you we have made investments to be able to get this company back on track and where it belongs to be. Here you are all saying 'I want shareholder value, I want to drive it,' and you're pissing it away by not even asking us to give it. To me, that's incomprehensible...We are not doing anything on the volume side differently because we are promising you the margin. The margin is entirely coming from what something that you should demand, but nobody is demanding, which is very amazing to me." Reference Link
