PARIS -- December 18, 2012

LVMH regrets to announce that Jordi Constans is leaving Louis Vuitton where he
has been CEO.

This sudden departure is due to the discovery of a significant health issue
which requires that Mr Constans focus on this priority.

Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, said:
“During his time with Louis Vuitton Jordi Constans has shown remarkable
leadership which has earned him the respect of the entire team. He understood
perfectly the opportunities for this iconic brand. On behalf of the entire
group I wish Jordi a full recovery.”
