Danone's Transformation Strategy Likely To Deliver 'Significant Cost Savings': Moody's
Danone's transformation strategy is likely to deliver 'significant' cost savings and boost sales, however it also carries a high execution risk, Moody's has said.
According to the ratings firm, the three-year strategy, which was announced last November, will require structural and cultural change, with high restructuring costs of €1.4 billion likely to curb cash flow generation.
Danone is targeting €1 billion of cost savings by 2023, with two-thirds of these savings set to be made by the end of 2022. It will seek to obtain €300 million in logistics efficiencies and €700 million in general and administrative costs, reducing its headcount in both local and global offices by between 1,500 and 2,000.
