States, while  Europe  demonstrates  good  resistance  despite  a  challenging 
economic environment.

The Wines & Spirits  business group recorded organic  revenue growth of 7%  in 
the first quarter of 2013. Champagne
was notably robust  in Asia, which  compensated for softer  demand in  Europe. 
Hennessy cognac continued its excellent momentum, with a solid performance  in 
the United  States  and  rapid  growth  in  China.  Other  spirits,  including 
Glenmorangie and Belvedere, experienced a good start to the year.



The Fashion & Leather Goods business group recorded organic revenue growth  of 
3% in the first quarter of 2013. With a strategy founded on the innovation and
quality of its products  and their distribution,  Louis Vuitton continued  its 
progress. Louis  Vuitton  relies  on  its  incomparable  know-how  to  further 
strengthen its product lines in order to offer its clients the highest quality
and best  service. Fendi  benefited  from continued  developments in  fur  and 
leather and pursues its  program of enlarging its  store network. Céline  made 
excellent progress in its  own stores. The other  brands continued to  develop 
well.

In Perfumes & Cosmetics, organic revenue growth was 5% in the first quarter of
2013. Christian Dior recorded further solid  growth thanks to the vitality  of 
its perfumes and, in particular, the continued strength of J'adore, Miss  Dior 
and Dior Homme. The new lipstick Dior Addict and the premium skincare Prestige
also contributed to the brand's growth. Guerlain continued to benefit from the
strong momentum  of La  Petite Robe  Noire  and the  success of  its  high-end 
skincare Orchidée Impériale. Givenchy rolled out its fragrance Gentlemen Only,
with Simon Baker as its muse. Benefit and Fresh continued to strengthen  their 
positions thanks to their strongly innovative products.

The Watches and Jewellery business group recorded organic revenue growth of 2%
in first quarter 2013, on  top of a strong performance  in the same period  in 
2012. This  performance  was  achieved  in a  context  of  prudent  buying  by 
multi-brand retailers.  TAG  Heuer's first  quarter  was marked  by  the  50th 
anniversary of its Carrera line and the new partnership with McLaren which was
announced at the Geneva Motor Show. Hublot and Zenith also had a good start to
the year. In jewelry, Bulgari confirmed  the success of its Serpenti line  and 
recorded strong revenue growth in its own stores.

In Selective  Retailing, organic  revenue growth  stood at  17% in  the  first 
quarter of 2013. DFS recorded an excellent performance driven by the continued
growth in  Asian  tourism  despite  a decline  in  expenditure  from  Japanese 
tourists resulting from the weaker Yen. Sephora gained market share in all its
regions and continued to expand its global store network with, in  particular, 
the opening  in Shanghai  of its  largest store  in China.  Online sales  also 
experienced rapid growth during the period.

In an  economic  environment which  remains  uncertain in  Europe,  LVMH  will 
continue to focus its efforts on developing its brands, will maintain a strict
control over  costs  and will  target  its  investments on  the  quality,  the 
excellence and  the innovation  of its  products and  their distribution.  The 
Group  will  rely  on  the  talent  and  the  motivation  of  its  teams,  the 
diversification of its  businesses and  the good geographical  balance of  its 
revenues to increase, once  again in 2013, its  leadership of the global  high 
quality goods market.
