Overview

We function within the perfume enterprise, and manufacture, market and distribute a
big range of fragrances and perfume associated merchandise. We handle our enterprise
in two segments, European primarily based operations and United States primarily based operations.
Certain status perfume merchandise are produced and marketed by our European
operations via our 73% owned subsidiary in Paris, IPSA, which can be a
publicly traded firm as 27% of IPSA shares commerce on the NYSE Euronext.

We produce and distribute our European primarily based perfume merchandise primarily underneath
license agreements with model homeowners, and European primarily based perfume product gross sales
represented roughly 73% and 80% of internet gross sales for the three months ended
March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. We have constructed a portfolio of status
manufacturers, which embrace Boucheron, Coach, Jimmy Choo, Karl Lagerfeld, Kate Spade,
Lanvin, Moncler, Montblanc, S.T. Dupont, Rochas and Van Cleef & Arpels, whose
merchandise are distributed in over 120 nations world wide.

Through our United States operations, we additionally market perfume and perfume
associated merchandise. United States operations represented 27% and 20% of internet gross sales
for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. These
perfume merchandise are offered primarily pursuant to license or different agreements
with the homeowners of the Abercrombie & Fitch, Anna Sui, Ferragamo, Graff, GUESS,
Hollister, MCM, Oscar de la Renta and Ungaro manufacturers.

Quarterly gross sales fluctuations are influenced by the timing of recent product
launches in addition to the third and fourth quarter vacation season. In sure
markets the place we promote on to retailers, seasonality is extra evident. We
primarily promote on to retailers in France and the United States.

We develop our enterprise in two distinct methods. First, we develop by including new manufacturers
to our portfolio, both via new licenses or different preparations or out-right
acquisitions of manufacturers. Second, we develop via the introduction of recent merchandise
and by supporting new and established merchandise via promoting,
merchandising and sampling in addition to phasing out underperforming merchandise so we
can commit better sources to these merchandise with better potential. The
economics of growing, producing, launching and supporting merchandise affect
our gross sales and working efficiency every year. Our introduction of recent merchandise
could have some cannibalizing impact on gross sales of current merchandise, which we take
into consideration in our enterprise planning.

Our enterprise just isn’t capital intensive, and it is very important observe that we do
not personal manufacturing amenities. We act as a common contractor and supply our
wanted elements from our suppliers. These elements are obtained at certainly one of
our distribution facilities after which, primarily based upon manufacturing wants, the elements
are despatched to certainly one of a number of third occasion fillers, which manufacture the completed
product for us after which ship them to certainly one of our distribution facilities.

As with any world enterprise, many facets of our operations are topic to
influences exterior our management. We imagine we’ve a robust model portfolio with
world attain and potential. As a part of our technique, we plan to proceed to make
investments behind fast-growing markets and channels to develop market share.

Our reported internet gross sales are impacted by modifications in international foreign money change
charges. A robust U.S. greenback has a destructive influence on our internet gross sales. However,
earnings are positively affected by a robust greenback, as a result of nearly 50% of internet
gross sales of our European operations are denominated in U.S. {dollars}, whereas nearly
all prices of our European operations are incurred in euro. Conversely, a weak
U.S. greenback has a positive influence on our internet gross sales whereas gross margins are
negatively affected. We handle sure monetary exposures via a managed
program of danger administration that features using spinoff monetary
devices and primarily enter into international foreign money ahead change contracts
to scale back the results of fluctuating international foreign money change charges.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has negatively impacted our operations in each
Russia and Ukraine. Since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, we’ve been
following rules and sanctions which differ by nation. In fiscal 2021, our
operations in Ukraine and Russia accounted for roughly 4% of consolidated
internet gross sales. Future impacts on our enterprise, together with sanctions and
counter-sanctions, are troublesome to foretell as a result of excessive degree of uncertainty
as to how these developments will evolve.

We are monitoring the results of this battle, together with the dangers which will
have an effect on our enterprise, and anticipate that we are going to alter our plans accordingly because the
state of affairs progresses. We don’t anticipate any materials credit score losses as most of our
receivables on gross sales to Russia and Ukraine are lined by insurance coverage or are being
paid upfront.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the actions associated to Russia and
Ukraine didn’t have a fabric influence on our consolidated monetary statements.

additional unfold of the virus. In addition, worldwide air journey stays
curtailed in lots of jurisdictions attributable to each governmental restrictions and
client well being considerations. While COVID-19 has considerably restricted
worldwide journey within the near-term, we proceed to imagine that world journey
retail will as soon as once more be a development alternative for the long-term. Lastly, the
improved financial system has put important strains on our provide chain inflicting
disruptions affecting the procurement of elements, the flexibility to move
items, and associated price will increase. These disruptions have come at a time when
demand for our product strains has by no means been stronger or extra sustained. We have
been addressing this concern for the reason that starting of 2021, by ordering nicely in
advance of want and in bigger portions. Since 2021, we’ve strived to hold

when potential, manufacture merchandise nearer to the place they’re offered. We don’t
anticipate the availability chain bottlenecks to start lifting till later in 2022.

the truth that our distributors share our promoting obligations.

settlement for the creation, growth and distribution of fragrances and

elevated 16% from yr finish 2021. Although inventories embrace product wanted to
help new product launches, the general steadiness is decrease than historic ranges
due primarily to produce chain disruptions. We have been addressing this concern
for the reason that starting of 2021, by ordering nicely upfront of want and in bigger
portions. Since 2021, we’ve strived to hold extra stock total, supply
the identical elements from a number of suppliers and when potential, manufacture
merchandise nearer to the place they’re offered.

Cash flows utilized in investing actions in 2022 mirror purchases and gross sales of
short-term investments. These investments embrace certificates of deposit with
maturities better than three months. Approximately $47 million of such
