Jewelers Mutual® Group Celebrates 110 Years

Jewelers Mutual® Group, the insurance and business solutions provider dedicated to the jewelry industry, is celebrating its 110th anniversary this month by reaffirming its commitment to the industry and its customers.

In 1913, a group of jewelers banded together because they couldn’t find insurance for their jewelry stores. Over the years, Jewelers Mutual continued to expand its protection offerings to include jewelry consumers, while bringing even more solutions to jewelers to help enable their growth. Today, the company continues to elevate the industry with programs that progressively move it forward. Jewelers Mutual’s recent establishment of the Jewelry Industry Council, the Conversations leadership event, and a multitude of innovative initiatives fuel new products and insurtech solutions to meet customers’ needs better than ever before.

“Jewelers Mutual has proven to be the consistent, dependable company that its more than one million customers throughout the U.S. and Canada depend on,” said Scott Murphy, Jewelers Mutual President and Chief Executive Officer. “The responsibility that comes from serving our growing customer base is significant, and we are more focused than ever on being there for them in the ways they need us to be, both now and for the future.”

Over the past several years, Jewelers Mutual has launched numerous technology advancements for both jewelry businesses and jewelry customers, including its marketplace technology platform which has become a one-stop destination for thousands of jewelers to improve the way they do business—from shipping to appraisal solutions and more. Exploring each facet of the industry, the company continues to uncover new opportunities such as Internet of Things loss prevention technology and meaningful insurtech offerings, like its one-of-a-kind Luxsurance® program, that transforms customer experiences.

“As we look to the future, we are excited about the possibilities and are dedicated to delivering the best possible service and solutions to our customers,” said Murphy. “After 110 years, we are just getting started.”

With an expanded portfolio beyond insurance, Jewelers Mutual is well-positioned to shape and strengthen the jewelry industry for the next 110 years.

Resideo, ADI Report Record 2022 Net Revenues

Resideo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: REZI) and its distribution division ADI have both reported positive revenues for their Q4 2022 and full fiscal year 2022, despite suffering from supply chain woes. Citing economic uncertainty ahead, the company has announced it will make a 5% workforce reduction.

For the full year 2022 ended on December 31, 2022, Resideo had record net revenue of $6.37 billion, up 9% from $5.85 billion in 2021. Resideo’s products and solutions side of its business represented $2.78 billion of the total revenue (up 13%), while the global distribution side of its business (ADI) accounted for $3.59 billion (up 6%) of the full-year revenue. Narrowing it down to just Q4, the company had net revenue of $1.56 billion, up 7%. The company’s gross profit margin was 27.6%.

“Across the organization the team continued to deliver for customers in the face of the dynamic supply chain environment and challenging macro-economic backdrop,” commented Jay Geldmacher, Resideo’s President and CEO. “Feedback from customers and our data indicate our competitive positioning remains strong across the majority of our key markets. This is evident in the results both ADI and Products and Solutions delivered in 2022, with record revenue and expanding profitability even as residential market growth began to slow in the second half of the year. We remain focused on executing on the substantial long-term opportunity to improve margins and drive higher profitability through product innovation, cost optimization, and manufacturing efficiency initiatives.”

Resideo Cost Reduction Actions Underway

“Given elevated near-term uncertainty around the macro-economic environment and the residential market outlook, we have taken action to reduce costs,” says Geldmacher. “This includes headcount reductions, scaling back certain investment initiatives, and further rationalizing corporate spending. We have also begun the manufacturing optimization work delayed due to supply chain challenges. These actions will position us to better respond to market fluctuations while continuing to support our customers and invest in key innovation and profit enhancement initiatives.”

Resideo has initiated cost reduction actions that are expected to result in an approximate 5% decrease in its global workforce and approximately $70 million of annualized savings once fully implemented, which is expected to be within the next 12 to 24 months.

According to the company, the key initiatives will include right-sizing the business, simplifying the organizational structure, optimizing manufacturing, and rationalizing corporate spending. These cost reduction measures are expected to improve the focus of operational resources on advancing strategic initiatives and better position Resideo to scale with future growth.

The restructuring is already underway, with the company incurring $35 million in restructuring and impairment expenses related to these costs reduction actions in the fourth quarter of 2022. Cash costs associated with these actions are expected to be approximately $25 million and paid throughout 2023.
