New York, NY, November 1, 2017 -

The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. (NYSE: EL) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended September 30, 2017.  The Company achieved net sales of $3.27 billion, an increase of 14%, compared with $2.87 billion in the prior-year quarter.  Incremental sales from the Company’s recent acquisitions of Too Faced and BECCA contributed approximately 4 percentage points of the reported sales growth.  Net earnings rose 45% to $427 million, compared with $294 million last year.  Diluted net earnings per common share increased 44% to $1.14, compared with $.79 reported in the prior year.  The fiscal 2018 first quarter also includes the impact of the adoption of a new accounting pronouncement for share-based compensation, which added $.06 to diluted earnings per share.  See note C on page 11.

“Our online and travel retail channels and most luxury and mid-sized brands posted double-digit sales gains.  In addition, we saw encouraging signs of improvement in some U.S. prestige department stores, and our targeted expansion into more specialty-multi doors to reach new consumers continued to help us gain share.  Sales growth in the Estée Lauder brand continued to accelerate, generating double-digit gains in the quarter.  Our earnings per share reflected the strong sales gains combined with our success in leveraging those sales through cost saving initiatives, efficiencies and continued financial discipline.

 

“For the full fiscal year, our forecast reflects strong programs supported by focused advertising and marketing spending and sustained investments to further build capabilities for the long term.  With this strong start to fiscal 2018 and our confidence in the potential for our business, we are raising our full-year constant currency sales growth forecast to between 8% and 9% and increasing our
