Modern name, purpose, and visual identity mark inspiring next chapter for maker of iconic, trusted brands, including Tylenol, Neutrogena, Listerine, and Band-Aid Brand

Johnson & Johnson (the "Company") (NYSE: JNJ) today took another step forward in establishing two independent, market-leading companies with the announcement of Kenvue as the name for the planned New Consumer Health Company. The new corporate brand comes to life through a compelling purpose, and a timeless visual brand.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220928005340/en/

Kenvue (pronounced ken·view), is inspired by two powerful ideas: "ken" meaning knowledge, an English word primarily used in Scotland, and "vue," referencing sight. With rich knowledge of human needs and deep consumer insights, Kenvue will deliver meaningful, personal health solutions.

"Unveiling the Kenvue brand is a defining moment for our stakeholders and an important part of the planned separation," said Thibaut Mongon, CEO Designate, Kenvue, the planned New Consumer Health Company. "We breathe life into some of the world's most iconic and beloved brands every day, so we harnessed that same expertise, love, and energy into developing our new corporate identity."

Kenvue's purpose, Realize the Extraordinary Power of Everyday Care , will guide the company's actions and long-term aspirations, from strategy to talent philosophy, and more.

"We believe that daily self-care rituals add up over time and have a profound cumulative impact on your wellbeing. This is the extraordinary power of everyday care. And our work is to put that power into the hands of consumers around the world," Mongon adds.

Along with the name and purpose, Kenvue's visual identity represents the company's timelessness, while allowing space for its iconic brands to also have a home. The new logo centers on the "K" symbol, embodying the company's strengths – the geometry of the rectangle representing scientific precision and the round edges evoking the warmth of care. The corporate name is depicted in a distinctive logotype in a rich green. This strong, distinctive color works in harmony with the multicolored palette of the company's portfolio of well-known brands.

Joaquin Duato, Chief Executive Officer of Johnson & Johnson adds, "Today's announcement is another milestone for the Consumer Health business. Kenvue is poised to thrive as a standalone company with a leading portfolio of brands consumers love and trust. I'm confident in this team and excited to see what the future holds."

Kenvue Post-Separation: A Leading Global Consumer Health Company with Iconic Brands and Commitment to Continued Innovation

Kenvue will become a standalone leading global consumer health company in 2023, subject to legal requirements including consultation with works councils and employee representatives, as required. Kenvue will continue to touch the lives of over one billion consumers worldwide every day through its iconic portfolio of beloved brands such as AVEENO®, BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages, LISTERINE®, NEUTROGENA®, TYLENOL®, JOHNSON'S® and DR. CI:LABO®, and will continue its longstanding legacy of innovation.

Usage of the new company logo and corporate brand identity will be effective upon completion of the planned separation. More information regarding Kenvue, including the company's board of directors and financial transaction information will be available at a later date.

The Consumer Health segment generated revenue of $14.6 billion in Full-Year 2021 and, following the planned separation, Kenvue would generate sales in over 100 countries, driven by world-class innovation capabilities and demonstrated business momentum.

In recent years, Johnson & Johnson has focused the Consumer Health business and advanced its innovation, enabling it to reach more consumers with products that truly make a difference in peoples' lives, while simultaneously expanding margins and delivering healthy financial results. These actions have bolstered positions in Self Care, Skin Health and Essential Health.
