Coty (NYSE: COTY), one of the world’s largest beauty companies with a portfolio of iconic brands across fragrance, color cosmetics, and skin and body care, is pleased to confirm that Chief Financial Officer Laurent Mercier will present at the 2023 Bank of America Consumer & Retail Conference on Wednesday, March 15 at 8:00 A.M. EST or 1:00 P.M. CET.
Coty will provide perspectives on the current beauty market, its financial progress and future growth opportunities. Coty will share that its fiscal Q3 core LFL sales growth is tracking at +10%, reflecting an acceleration from the +7% core LFL sales growth in Q2. As a result, Coty now expects its FY23 core LFL sales growth to be at the upper end of its prior guidance of 6-8% core LFL sales growth. Coty will reiterate its FY23 outlook, including its adjusted gross margin, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS guidance, as the company intends to reinvest incremental profit into its critical skincare initiatives and recent launches.
The presentation accompanying management's remarks will be available on Coty’s Investor Relations website, under Events and Presentations. A live webcast of the presentation will begin at 8:00 A.M. EST and a replay of Coty’s remarks will be available at investors.coty.com/news-events-and-presentations.
