  • 11 Oct 16

Comforting H1 performance

  • 27 Jul 16

Wines & spirits outperformed with a 7% surge to reach €2,056m, boosted by the strong momentum in cognac and spirits (+13% in volume and +10% in value). The core business retreated slightly by 1% to €5,933m despite the good progression of the main brands. All other segments experienced healthy growth (4-5%) with a marked outperformance in perfumes and cosmetics displaying an organic growth of 8%. Watches showed a strong resilience compared to the market, growing at 4% to reach €1,609m. The operating profit remained flat at €2,959m, pulled down by the deteriorating profitability of fashion & leather products, the main contributor to margins, and selective retail. The latter reported a 5% dwindling operating profit to €410m while the core business posted 2% decrease to €1,630m. Wines & spirits impressed with a 17% surge in operating profit to reach €565m.
