(Bloomberg) -- Shopify Inc. reported fourth-quarter revenue that topped analysts’ estimates and gave an optimistic forecast for this year, boosted by holiday shopping and add-on services such as payment and marketing tools. The shares surged the most in almost four years.Sales grew by 47% to $505.2 million in the quarter, Ottawa-based Shopify said in a statement Wednesday. Analysts expected $481.6 million, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. For 2020, Shopify said it sees revenue of $2.13 billion to $2.16 billion, compared with analysts’ projection for $2.12 billion.The key metric of gross merchandise volume, which represents the value of all goods sold on the platform, increased 47% from a year earlier. Over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday holiday weekend, merchants on Shopify’s platform, which now number more than 1 million, made more than $2.9 billion in sales, up from $1.8 billion a year earlier, according to the company.The New York-listed shares jumped as much as 15.5% at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, to a new record of $569.10.The stock has risen more than 70% from November, boosted by the pace of revenue growth and amid optimism for a fulfillment center plan announced last year. Shopify said in June that it will invest $1 billion in facilities over five years to help merchants on its platform deliver products quickly and easily, following a path blazed by Amazon.com Inc. A few months later, Shopify made its biggest acquisition yet, paying $450 million for 6 River Systems, a warehouse robotics company.Shopify helps businesses open their own digital stores across multiple channels, including social media, through its platform. The company also provides point-of-sale services in brick-and-mortar stores, competing with Square Inc.The company also swung to a profit in the fourth quarter, reporting $771 million, compared with a loss of $1.5 billion a year earlier. Profit excluding some costs was 43 cents a share in the quarter, beating analysts’ projection for 24 cents.“Shopify’s 4Q 2019 performance was impressive in our view,” said Anthony Chukumba, an analyst at Loop Capital Markets, in a note following the results. “We were particularly encouraged by the gross merchandise volume (GMV) growth, which further demonstrates how Shopify is ‘democratizing commerce’ and providing value to its merchants.”Besides fulfillment centers, the company has rolled out tools such as chat and email, as well as video and 3D modeling for products to help merchants improve marketing and build direct relationships with buyers. Such investments combined with the company’s push to capture international markets could prevent any significant margin expansion in 2020, said Anurag Rana, a senior analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence, in a Feb. 5 note.Chief Financial Officer Amy Shapero acknowledged on an earnings call that 2020 is “clearly a year of heavy investment” for Shopify, but the company expects to see strong growth from the resulting increase in clients and gross merchandise volume, she added.Shopify said it expects an operating loss in the range of $324 million to $344 million in 2020.While it mainly caters to small and medium businesses, Shopify also counts high-profile brands such as Gatorade, Aerosoles, Victoria Beckham Beauty, Heineken, and SpaceX. Shopify Plus, a segment geared toward companies with high sales volumes, has been key to attracting such larger brands. Shopify Plus contributed 27% of the company’s overall monthly recurring revenue, compared with 25.4% in the same quarter last year.To contact the reporter on this story: Nikitha Sattiraju in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Molly Schuetz at firstname.lastname@example.org, Jacqueline ThorpeFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.Heineken NV’s chief executive officer is leaving on a high note, reporting further gains for the brewer’s namesake brand a day after announcing plans to step down.CEO Jean-Francois van Boxmeer will hand the baton to Dolf van den Brink, 46, who leads the Dutch company’s Asia-Pacific operations, in June. The world’s second-largest brewer on Wednesday reported earnings that beat analyst estimates, driven by the green-labeled flagship brand.Van Boxmeer, 58, has been CEO for almost 15 years, during which he has overseen 30 billion euros ($33 billion) worth of acquisitions. Those deals have turned the company into the world’s No. 2 brewer, after Anheuser-Busch InBev NV.Full-year adjusted net income reached 2.52 billion euros ($2.8 billion), driven by sales in Asia. The brewer’s namesake brand had its fastest shipment growth in more than a decade. The shares rose as much as 4.6%.The incoming CEO has been with the Dutch brewer for more than two decades. His choice doesn’t come as a surprise, said analyst Jos Versteeg at InsingerGilissen Bankiers, as Heineken had sufficient internal candidates and Asia has been growing in importance for the brewer.Van den Brink’s appointment “indicates that there are no major changes in the pipeline,” he said. “Shareholders buy Heineken for security. It is a very well-run company where no crazy things happen.”Sales from Asia Pacific rose 12%, more than twice as fast as any other region.The company said its president for Europe, Stefan Orlowski, is leaving to pursue “private entrepreneurial interests.” He was seen as a likely CEO candidate, having run a business that’s the source of almost half of Heineken’s sales. Previously he was in charge of the Americas.Namesake StrengthHeineken has been depending more on the strong performance of its namesake brand lately as consumers move from low-end beers to international premium alternatives in developing economies. In the key market of Vietnam, the company has been hit by concern over the effect of a new drunken-driving law.Brazil is now the largest market for the Heineken brand, after the company bought Kirin’s business in that country and managed to turn it around. The brand had double-digit growth in 40 countries.Van Boxmeer’s global push culminated with a $3.1 billion purchase of a 40% stake in China’s largest beer maker in 2018. The deal with the brewer of the Snow brand helped the Dutch company to expand in a heated lager market that’s dominated by local labels.The departing CEO joined the company as a management trainee in 1984. He was named to the board of Heineken Holding NV, the vehicle through which the Heineken family controls the brewer.“I wrote 15 pages of a book that’s 154 pages,” the CEO said in a phone interview. He said that he had no regrets other than wishing he had acted faster on gender balance in a “very male” brewing industry.(Updates with shares in fourth paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: Thomas Buckley in London at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Eric Pfanner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Thomas Mulier, Neil CallananFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Heineken , the world's second largest brewer, forecast lower barley and aluminium costs would help to boost profits this year, when its long-serving chief executive will step down. Shares in the maker of Heineken, Europe's top-selling lager, as well as Tiger, Sol and Strongbow cider, jumped more than 6% in early Wednesday trading as investors cheered solid fourth-quarter results, led by growth in Vietnam, Cambodia and Brazil. Along with a more moderate increase in input costs, that should result in a mid-single digit percentage rise in operating profit in 2020, it added, while saying it was too early to assess the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on its business.

(Bloomberg) -- The milk float, a home-delivery service that evolved from horse-drawn carriages to early electric vehicles, belongs firmly in the past. Or does it?A little known Amsterdam-based online grocery company had revived the concept, but with a modern flourish.Picnic BV has a concept dubbed “Milkman 2.0” to deliver groceries using electric vehicles, focusing on less food waste and fewer food miles traveled. The company buys and delivers locally, with its vans going no faster that 50 kilometers per hour.“Our aim is create a sustainable infrastructure for food delivery,” Joris Beckers, the company’s 53-year-old co-founder, said in a phone interview.Founded in 2015, Picnic has unleashed a fleet of 1,000 electric vans on to the streets of the Netherlands and Germany and plans to add “hundreds more” by the end of 2020. The company says the delivery vehicle it has designed and produced is fully electric and “has no small particle emissions and prevents traffic due to its slim design.”Wealthy BackersBacked by investors including the investment arm of the entrepreneurial Fentener van Vlissingen family, the company raised 250 million euros ($278 million) in a new round of funding in November.Other backers include De Hoge Dennen Capital, the De Rijke family and Hoyberg, the investment arm of the Hoyer family, which is a shareholder of Heineken NV.“We are high growth, high risk, but in it for the long-term,” Beckers said.The company will use the cash to continue its growth and build a “robotised fulfilment center” for online groceries in Utrecht, Holland. The center will aim to process around 150,000 orders every week, it says.Building InfrastructureThe grocery-delivery market is intensely competitive, and Picnic’s concept is not entirely original. In the U.K., Ocado is among online supermarkets with no stores that delivers from its warehouses. In Germany, there’s Bringmeister.Picnic says it has a 5% market share in the most mature cities in which it is active. The grocery market in the Netherlands totals 40 billion euros and in Germany it’s 175 billion euros, according to the company.This year was a record for Picnic, which added almost 300,000 new customers in the Netherlands and Germany. Picnic’s annual revenue currently stands at about 300 million euros, but the company has its sights set on bigger things.A law graduate and a biking enthusiast, Beckers, who said at a Shop Talk Europe conference in 2017 that he “stumbled into the internet world around about 1999, when Amazon was still a little bookstore,” doesn’t want Picnic to stop at groceries.“Food is our entry point but we’re building an e-commerce infrastructure,” he said.For instance, the company is operating a number of pilot projects with fashion retailers including Zalando SE to allow customers to send their returns back via Picnic.“We are disrupting and significantly improving the e-commerce experience,” Beckers said.To contact the reporter on this story: Sarah Syed in London at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Vidya RootFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
