Marketing Changes Ahead?: Berkshire Hathaway to buy Duracell from P&G


Subject: traditional, digital, social media, acquisitions

Company: Duracell   

Opportunity: Fours months after announcing its intention to Duracell. Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett’s conglomerate holding company based in Omaha, Neb., has agreed to acquire the battery company for a reported $4.7 billion (that’s billion with a “b”).  The deal, which is expected to close in the second half of 2015, is the first of many for P&G. 

Additional Insight

Media Spend: Duracell spent $49.5 million on measured media in 2013, according to Kantar Media. Broadcast ads accounted for $30.2 million, while the battery company only spent $11.5 million on digital ads. Note that the third largest spned area for Duracell was on Hispanic media – $7.3 million.

New Agency: The acquisition comes about fourth months after Duracell hired MDC’s here).

Competition: Duracell leads the consumer battery market share at 39.5% after powering past leading rival expanding a restructuring plan geared towards saving $300 million.

P&G Consolidation: The company estimates it will divest itself of half its brands (research here), leaving only 70 or 80 for P&G to focus on. Buffett said in a statement that he had “always been impressed by Duracell” and that the company would fit well within Berkshire Hathaway, which already owns other consumer brands with household names, such as Fruit of the Loom, Geico Insurance and Helzberg Diamonds.
