L'Oreal: L'Oréal: News Release: "First-half 2014 results"

          L'Oreal: L'Oréal: News Release: "First-half 2014 results"  Clichy, July 31^st, 2014 at 6:00 pm                             First-half 2014 results                                A SOLID FIRST HALF                                                             GOOD OPERATING PROFITABILITY PROGRESSION                          GROWTH CONTRASTED BY DIVISION    oOperating profitability at 18.2% of sales, a profit of 2.029 billion euros   oSales: 11.17 billion euros  +3.8% like-for-like -1.5% based on reported figures    oVery strong performance continues at L'Oréal Luxe and Active Cosmetics     Division   oGradual improvement of the Professional Products Division   oConsumer Products Division held back by a sluggish market in the United     States    *Confidence in another year of sales and profit growth  Commenting on the  figures, Mr Jean-Paul  Agon, Chairman and  CEO of  L'Oréal,  said:  "A good progression in operating profitability was once again achieved in  the  first half,  at  18.2%  of  sales,  further  illustrating  the  robustness  of  L'Oréal's strong value-creating business model.  First-half sales showed  contrasts by  distribution channel.  L'Oréal Luxe  is  growing rapidly,  driven by  the vitality  of the  novel brands  Urban  Decay,  Kiehl's and Clarisonic and by the success of fragrances with Lancôme, "La  Vie  est Belle"  and  Giorgio Armani,  "Sì".  The Active  Cosmetics  Division  also  delivered a very good  performance thanks to La  Roche-Posay, which this  year  once again is growing very strongly, the continuing recovery of Vichy, and the roll-out of SkinCeuticals.  The Professional Products  Division is  confirming  its  gradual  improvement  across  all  its  brands.  The  Consumer   Products  Division's growth is held back by a sluggish American market and, to a certain extent, by a slowdown in the New Markets, but remains solid in Western Europe.  In an uncertain  economic and monetary  environment, we are  confident in  the  Group's ability  to once  again outperform  the  market in  2014 and  to  post  another  year  of  like-for-like  sales  growth,  improved  profitability  and  increased net earnings per share.  Following the finalisation  on July  8^th, 2014 of  the strategic  transaction  between L'Oréal and Nestlé, the Group will record this year a capital gain  of  more than 2 billion euros. The  cancellation of 48.5 million shares will  have  an accretive impact of more than 5% on  net earnings per share on a full  year  basis."  Note: The announcement  on February  11^th, 2014, of  the disposal  of 50%  of  Galderma leads  to  account  for  this business  in  accordance  with  IFRS  5  accounting rule  on  discontinued  operations.  In  accordance  with  IFRS  11  accounting rule,  Inneov has  been  consolidated under  the equity  method  of  January 1^st,  2014.  All  figures  for earlier  periods  have  been  restated  accordingly.    A - First-half 2014 sales  Like-for-like, i.e. based  on a  comparable structure  and identical  exchange  rates, the sales growth was +3.8%. The net impact of changes in consolidation was -0.2%. Currency fluctuations had a negative impact of -5.1%. If the exchange rates at June 30^th, 2014, i.e. €1 = $1.366,  are extrapolated up  to December 31^st,  the impact of  currency  fluctuations on sales would be approximately -3.5% for the whole of 2014. Growth at constant exchange rates was +3.6%. Based on reported figures, the Group's  sales at June 30^th, 2014 amounted  to  11.17 billion euros, a decrease of -1.5%.                Sales by operational Division and geographic Zone  The announcement on February 11^th, 2014,  of the disposal of 50% of  Galderma  leads to account for this business  in accordance with IFRS 5 accounting  rule  on discontinued operations. In accordance with IFRS 11 accounting rule, Inneov has been  consolidated under  the equity  method of  January 1^st,  2014.  All  figures for earlier periods have been restated accordingly.                        2^nd quarter 2014                1^st half 2014                                 Growth                          Growth                   €m    Like-for-like Reported    €m    Like-for-like Reported By operational Division Professional      769.9         +2.2%    -1.2%  1,505.1         +3.0%    -1.7% Products Consumer        2,722.6         +2.8%    -2.8%  5,481.5         +2.0%   - 4.2% Products L'Oréal Luxe    1,442.5         +7.5%    +2.7%  2,903.3         +7.4%    +2.7% Active            413.5         +7.4%    +2.4%    920.9         +8.1%    +3.2% Cosmetics Cosmetics       5,348.5         +4.3%    -0.8% 10,810.8         +4.0%    -1.5% Divisions total By geographic Zone Western Europe  1,961.0        +2.8%    +2.9%  3,980.9         +2.8%    +2.4% North America   1,327.1         +2.4%    -3.3%  2,622.3         +0.9%    -4.4% New Markets, of 2,060.4         +7.0%    -2.5%  4,207.6         +7.3%    -3.1% which: -Asia,       1,055.5                  +0.4%  2,221.9         +6.6%    -0.8% Pacific                         +6.3% -Latin         466.1         +7.6%    -7.8%    876.9         +7.8%    -8.9% America -Eastern       397.5         +5.9%    -6.4%    824.3         +6.1%    -6.2% Europe^(1) -Africa,       141.3        +14.0%    +7.9%    284.5        +14.5%    +9.3% Middle East^(1) Cosmetics       5,348.5         +4.3%    -0.8% 10,810.8         +4,0%    -1.5% Divisions total The Body Shop     187.4          0.0%    +0.3%    363.8         -1.7%    -1.4% Group total     5,536.0         +4.1%    -0.7% 11,174.6         +3.8%    -1.5%  (1) As of July 1^st, 2013,  Turkey and Israel, which were previously  included  in the Africa, Middle East Zone, were transferred to the Eastern Europe  Zone.  All figures for earlier periods have been restated to allow for this change.        1) Cosmetics sales      PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS  The Professional Products  Division has posted  growth of +3.0%  like-for-like  and -1.7% based on reported figures. The Division's growth was weaker in Asia, but has been confirmed in Western Europe and the United States.    oHaircare, driven by the new Biolage by Matrix, and hair colourants,     boosted by the further success of ODS^2 technology, are the main     contributors to growth. Styling is growing strongly, thanks to the     relaunch of TecniArt by L'Oréal Professionnel and Redken's styling range.        oThe return to growth in mature markets has been confirmed. The Division is     maintaining good momentum in the New Markets (excluding Japan), which are     still dynamic, especially in India, Russia and Brazil.      CONSUMER PRODUCTS  The Consumer  Products Division  recorded growth  of +2.0%  like-for-like  and  -4.2% based on reported figures.  Well-positioned to benefit from the  gradual  improvement in European markets, the Division was nevertheless held back by an American mass market that has been slow to pick up, and, to a certain  extent,  by slower growth of the market in the emerging countries.    oRecent launches, which have provided a strong boost in hair where the     Division is continuing to win market share, have been less effective in     facial skincare in the first part of the year. The Division is maintaining     its very good momentum in haircare, particularly in China, in Europe with     the launches of Fibralogy by L'Oréal Paris and Ultimate Blends by Garnier,     and in the United States with sustained growth on both L'Oréal Paris     Advanced Haircare and Garnier Fructis. In hair colourants, the roll-out of     Garnier Olia continues. In make-up, L'Oréal Paris is expanding well, and     is innovating with Butterfly and Miss Manga mascaras.        oAmongst the geographic Zones, North America has been held back by a     sluggish market and a high comparison base. The Division has posted solid     growth in Western Europe and Brazil. The Division continues to be dynamic     in Southern Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa, Middle East, where it is     gaining market share.      L'ORÉAL LUXE  The sales  of L'Oréal  Luxe grew  by +7.4%  like-for-like and  +2.7% based  on  reported figures at end-June. The Division is continuing to make strong market share gains.    oUrban Decay, the Californian L'Oréal Luxe brand, driven by its cult Naked     Palette product, is recording very strong growth, and the same is true of     the American alternative brands Kiehl's and Clarisonic. Giorgio Armani,     with its women's fragrance "Sì", Yves Saint Laurent, with its lip make-up,     and Ralph Lauren, thanks to its fragrances Polo Red and Midnight Romance,     are maintaining their dynamism. Lancôme's fragrance "La Vie est belle" is     now number one, both in the French market and in the five major European     markets combined, and the brand has successfully launched Visionnaire     Crème.        oThe Division is expanding in all its strategic categories and is gaining     market shares across all geographic Zones, particularly in the New     Markets, notably China, and in the United States and Western Europe.      ACTIVE COSMETICS  In the  first half,  the  Active Cosmetics  Division continued  its  sustained  growth at +8.1% like-for-like and +3.2% based on reported figures.    oThe first-half headline was the very good start made by sun protection,     both at Vichy (Capital Soleil) and at La Roche-Posay (Anthelios). Vichy is     maintaining its momentum with the launch of Aqualia Thermal and the     roll-out of Teint Idéal.     La Roche-Posay has posted once again double-digit growth on every     continent. Note the launch of Effaclar Duo[+], an anti-blemish corrective     skincare line that unclogs pores and targets marks. It is strengthening     the Effaclar franchise for acne-prone skin, one of the main reason of     dermatological consultations. Roger&Gallet successfully launched a new     fresh fragrance, Gingembre Rouge, in the second quarter.    oAll the geographic Zones are contributing to growth, with strong market     share gains in France, Russia, Brazil and China.    Multi-division summary by geographic Zone      WESTERN EUROPE  In Western  Europe,  the  Group  is maintaining  its  growth  trend  at  +2.8%  like-for-like  and  +2.4%  based  on  reported  figures.  All  the   Divisions  contributed to growth. The strong market share gains made by L'Oréal Luxe  and  the Active Cosmetics Division are worth noting. The Consumer Products Division is winning market share in haircare and hair colourants, and is continuing  to  prove dynamic with market share gains in Spain and Portugal.  NORTH AMERICA  In the first  half, L'Oréal  posted growth  of +0.9%  like-for-like and  -4.4%  based on  reported figures.The  Professional Products,  Active Cosmetics  and  L'Oréal Luxe Divisions are gaining market shares. Urban Decay is growing  very strongly, establishing itself  as the number  two  L'Oréal Luxe brand, after  Lancôme. In a sluggish  mass market environment  in  the first half of 2014, the Consumer  Products Division was faced with a  high  2013 comparison base.In  hair, L'Oréal  Paris Advanced  Haircare and  Garnier  Fructis are winning market share, while L'Oréal Paris make-up is strengthening its position thanks to the new Butterfly mascara.   NEW MARKETS    *Asia, Pacific: L'Oréal recorded growth of +6.6% like-for-like and -0.8%     based on reported figures. The market in this Zone is still dynamic,     despite a slight slowdown, and the Group is continuing to win market     share. The first half was marked by very good performances from the     Kiehl's, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, La Roche Posay and Clarisonic     brands. By country, India, Hong Kong and Australia are contributing     particularly strongly to this performance. Magic Holdings, the recent     acquisition in China, posted solid sales growth over the period.        *Latin America: In the first half, L'Oréal recorded growth of +7.8%     like-for-like and -8.9% based on reported figures. The growth of the     Consumer Products Division is being driven by the good performances of     Elsève and Maybelline. The three selective Divisions are performing well,     with double-digit growth for L'Oréal Luxe and the Active Cosmetics     Division. Growth is being driven by the success of L'Oréal Professionnel     hair colourants, sun protection in all the Active Cosmetics brands, and     fragrances at L'Oréal Luxe, such as "La Vie est Belle", Polo Red and "Sì".        *Eastern Europe: The Zone has posted growth of +6.1% like-for-like and     -6.2% based on reported figures. L'Oréal Luxe and the Professional     Products Division are proving highly dynamic in almost all countries in     this Zone. The Consumer Products Division is winning market share across     the Zone as a whole, reflecting the leadership now attained in hair     colourants and the strong dynamism of deodorants.        *Africa, Middle East: The Zone achieved growth of +14.5% like-for-like and     +9.3% based on reported figures, outperforming the market in the region.     The good growth figures in Egypt, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, and the     acceleration in Nigeria and South Africa, are worth noting.     Market share gains are also accelerating in fragrances for L'Oréal Luxe,     and in hair colourants and make-up for the Consumer Products Division. The     Active Cosmetics brands are also recording strong growth in the Middle     East.  2) The Body Shop sales  At end-June, The  Body Shop recorded  sales of -1.7%  like-for-like and  -1.4%  based on reported figures. Business in Europe, North America, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil, was driven by innovations. The strategic priority given  to  skincare is delivering, driving growth in this category. Asia is still  facing  challenges in certain markets, that are affecting performances. At June 30^th, 2014, The Body Shop  has 3,041 points of sale, including  those  of Emporio Body Store.  B - Important events during the period 04/01/14 to 06/30/14    oOn April 8^th, 2014, the acquisition of Magic Holdings was finalised. This     move marks L'Oréal's largest investment to date in the Chinese beauty     market.        oOn April 17^th, 2014, the Annual General Meeting of L'Oréal shareholders     renewed the tenure of Mr Jean-Paul Agon as Director. The Board of     Directors, which met at the end of the Annual General Meeting, decided to     renew the duties of Mr Jean-Paul Agon as Chairman and Chief Executive     Officer.        oOn April 30^th, 2014, the acquisition of the Decléor and Carita brands was     finalised.

C - First-half 2014 results  The half-year consolidated accounts have undergone a limited examination by the Statutory Auditors.  The announcement on February 11^th, 2014,  of the disposal of 50% of  Galderma  leads to account for this business  in accordance with IFRS 5 accounting  rule  on discontinued operations. In accordance with IFRS 11 accounting rule, Inneov has been  consolidated under  the equity  method of  January 1^st,  2014.  All  figures for earlier periods have been restated accordingly.  1) Operating profitability at 18.2% of sales Consolidated profit and loss account: from sales to operating profit.

Research and  Development expenses  have  increased from  3.2%  to 3.3%  as  a  percentage  of  sales.   This  increase  illustrates   the  Group's   constant  determination to support its Research and Innovation effort.  Advertising and promotion  expenses came out  at 29.3% of  sales, which is  70  basis points below the first-half 2013 level, as announced at the beginning of the year.  Selling, general and administrative expenses, at 21.1% of sales, have come  to  a higher level, by 50 basis points, compared to the first half of 2013.  Overall, the operating profit at 2,029  million euros, has grown by 0.2%,  and  amounts to 18.2% of sales. At constant exchange rates, operating profit growth would have been +4.5%.  2) Operating profit by operational Division  (2013 figures restated in accordance with IFRS 5 and IFRS 11 accounting rules)                              06/30/13          12/31/14          06/30/14                           €m    % of sales   €m      % of      €m      % of                                                      sales             sales By operational Division Professional Products     307.3      20.1%   609.5     20.5%   294.7     19.6% Consumer Products       1,190.2      20.8% 2,166.7     19.9% 1,157.2     21.1% L'Oréal Luxe              566.2      20.0% 1,174.2     20.0%   590.6     20.3% Active Cosmetics          247.1      27.7%   342.6     21.7%   259.5     28.2% Total Divisions         2,310.8      21.1% 4,293.0     20.2% 2,302.0     21.3% before non-allocated Non-allocated^(1)        -294.8      -2.7%  -604.5     -2.8%  -275.7     -2.6% Total Divisions         2,016.1      18.4% 3,688.5     17.3% 2,026.3     18.7% after non-allocated The Body Shop               9.8       2.7%    71.9     8.6 %     2.7      0.8% Group                   2,025.9     17.9 % 3,760.4    17.0 % 2,029.0     18.2%  (1) Non-allocated  expenses =  Central  Group expenses,  fundamental  research  expenses, stock option  and free  grant of shares  expenses and  miscellaneous  items. As a % of total Divisions sales.  With the exception of the Professional Products Division, whose  profitability  has declined from 20.1% to 19.6%,  the profitability of each of the  Divisions  has increased during the first half:  - The Consumer Products Division, from 20.8% to 21.1%, representing a rise  of  30 basis points.  - L'Oréal Luxe, from 20.0% to 20.3%, representing plus 30 basis points.  - And the  Active Cosmetics Division,  from 27.7%  to 28.2%, that  is plus  50  basis points.
