U.K. home retailer Argos taps American know-how

BY HBSDEALER Staff

According to an article in the Evening Standard, a former Sears and Best Buy executive will lead the multi-channel, 750-store Argos. 

John Walden is taking over on a mission described as a turn-around effort and an uphill battle. He replaces Sara Weller, who last year left the top spot at Argus, a division of Home Retail.

Home Retail’s CEO Terry Duddy said "We look forward to John bringing a valuable, fresh perspective to the future development of Argos.

Waden’s career includes duty with Best Buy and Sears, as well as online grocer Peapod. He most recently was CEO of Activeion Clean Technologies.

Arthur Blank makes a gift to golf

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Home Depot founder Arthur M. Blank, now the owner of the PGA Tour Superstores chain of golf shops, will donate $1 million to The First Tee youth development program.

“My family and our business associates are proud to partner with The First Tee to impact the lives of young people by building character and instilling honesty, integrity, sportsmanship and other life-enhancing values,” said Blank, who arranged the gift through The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. “At the same time, PGA TOUR Superstore is pleased to expand The First Tee’s reach in the communities we serve.”

The First Tee Campaign for 10 Million Young People launched in July 2011. The goal of the Campaign is to raise $100 million by the end of 2012 to enable the organization to reach 10 million new young people by 2017.

The donation will enhance The First Tee’s ability to expand its programs to additional locations, including elementary schools and youth organizations, and train more adults as coaches, mentors and leaders in the program, according to First Tee.

SWK shows double-digit growth

BY Ken Clark

Stanley Black & Decker’s fourth quarter and full year benefited from sales volume and the impact of acquisitions.

Fourth-quarter sales for one of the nation’s iconic tool brands increased 17% to $2.8 billion, with the company’s construction and DIY business (CDIY) showing organic growth of 8%.

The company’s fourth-quarter gains were attributable to volume (up 5%), price (up 1%) and the impact of acquisitions (11%).

“As we look back on 2011, we are proud of all we accomplished in the face of a choppy and unpredictable global macroeconomic backdrop," said Stanley Black & Decker’s president and CEO, John F. Lundgren.

Earnings for the fourth quarter were $165.3 million, up from $137.8 million in the fourth quarter last year. 

For the full year, Stanley’s sales increased 12% to $10.4 billion. Net earnings increased to $674.6 million, up from $198.2 million in 2010.

The CDIY segment is expected to produce low single-digit organic revenue growth in 2012. While weakness is expected in Europe, modest growth in North America and strength in Latin America and Asia are expected, the company said.

So what is "organic growth" anyway? Stanley, Black&Decker made money in the 4th quarter by promoting a large line of Christmas presents, which is fine, good for them, but that is it.
