Newman Enterprises is a worldwide conglomerate founded by Victor Newman in 1980. In 2013, it became known as Newman-Chancellor Industries, following the death of Katherine Chancellor and the merger of Newman Enterprises and Chancellor Industries until Chancellor Industries was sold to Jill Abbott and Cane Ashby in 2015. After that, it was briefly known as Newman-Abbott Enterprises following a merger with Jabot Cosmetics, until the merger was undone and the two companies separated, making it Newman Enterprises once again.

Newman Enterprises[edit]

Newman Enterprises was a worldwide conglomerate founded in 1980 by Victor Newman, following his departure from Chancellor Industries. The company operated with three divisions: Real Estate, Cosmetics and Venture Capital; and numerous subsidiaries. Throughout the company's history, its main rival has been Jabot Cosmetics.

For years, Newman's chief rival in the cosmetics industry was Jabot Cosmetics but after it went public Victor bought up most of the stock and acquired the company. For years Victor was chairman of the board and CEO with Jack Abbott, Brad Carlton, Jill Foster Abbott, Ashley Abbott, and Neil Winters all serving as underlings. Jack, Brad, and Neil served as coCEO but only short term as Victor always intended to pass Newman Enterprises on to his children. This caused longtime employee Neil Winters to resign and become CEO of Chancellor Industries.

For years Victor as chairman and CEO ruthlessly ran Newman Enterprises and made it one of the largest and most successful conglomerates in the world. Both Victoria and Nicholas worked their way up at Newman Enterprises to eventually become board members and CEO's respectively. After the death of Victor's ex-wife Hope Wilson Victor invited his younger son Victor Adam Newman, Jr. to come work at Newman Enterprises. Adam was a Harvard-educated Wall Street stockbroker and inherited much of Victor's business savvy but his ambition and jealousy put him at odds with Victor and his siblings but Adam served briefly as chairman of the board and CEO and managed to retain a seat on the board after Newman Enterprises went public.

For years Newman Enterprises was a private company but after his daughters Victoria and Abby and eldest son Nicholas successfully sued Victor for $1.5 billion Victor took the company public. Despite this Victor forgave his children and they have returned to work at Newman Enterprises.

Since the lawsuit, there have been many changes in Newman Enterprises in terms of CEO. When Victor was jailed, Adam Newman took on the roll of CEO, but Victor later returned. A few months later, Victor disappeared because of mental health issues, and his then-wife, Sharon Newman took over the role of CEO out of revenge towards the Newmans, mainly Victor, Nicholas, Victoria, Abby, Adam and Nikki. A court ruling made Victoria Newman acting CEO while Sharon underwent court ordered psychological evaluation, but the decision was reversed soon after. Sharon's tenure as CEO saw stocks at Newman plummet, but her term ended once Victor returned alive retaking control of his company. Due to the plummet in stocks, Tucker McCall conspired with Jack Abbott in a hostile takeover to control Newman Enterprises. They purchased significant stock. With Tucker's support, Jack was successful in his bid to become CEO. Jack fired Victor, Victoria, and Nicholas as he planned to change the face of the company by renaming it "Abbott Enterprises". Jack became addicted to painkillers but covered-up with help from Adam Newman.

Jack resigned as CEO and Adam convinced the board to appoint him CEO. Victor began plotting a takeover but when Adam was shot defending Victor they agreed to work together. Adam raises enough money from an anonymous source to buy out the remaining stockholders and the Newmans retake complete control of Newman Enterprises. Victor discovers that Adam's secret investor that allowed the Newmans to retake control of Newman Enterprises was Jack Abbott; this causes a rift between Victor and Adam in which Adam signs over his shares in the company to Victor. Upon the death of Victor's close friend Katherine Chancellor, Victor inherits majority ownership of Chancellor Industries and immediately plans a merger between Chancellor Industries and Newman Enterprises with Victoria heading the project. The new company emerged with the name Newman-Chancellor Industries.

The Newman ranch[edit]

"The Newman Ranch at 421 Larkspur Trail, Highway B, on the outskirts of Genoa City, has born witness to quite a lot of drama since Victor bought the property more than 30 years ago. In addition to the many romantic candlelit dinners and holiday celebrations, there's been the basement imprisonment of Michael Scott (the lover of Victor's first wife, Julia), several life-threatening events – including Nikki being shot by Veronica Landers – and Adam's haunting of Ashley. Most memorably, of course, Victor changed Nikki's life forever when he invited her to live at the ranch. "You were going to make a lady out of me," she remembered, tearfully surveying what remained of her beloved home after the recent devastating fire. Victor's reply: "It's a building. The memories we have are in our hearts. Always will be." And so they will be in ours!"[15]

The Young and the Restless' official website on the Newman ranch following it being torched by Sharon Newman

Victor and his wife at the time, Julia Newman, bought the Newman ranch from Katherine Chancellor in 1980. According to Jamey Giddens of Daytime Confidential, it is one of the show's most "iconic sets".[16] In October 2012, during a mental breakdown, Sharon Newman drank at the Newman ranch. She ended up setting the curtains at the ranch on fire, burning down the mainhouse completely. Adam Newman took her away into hiding immediately.[17][18]
