Inter Parfums, Inc.

Guidance assumes the dollar remains at current levels.
Jean Madar, Chairman and CEO of Inter Parfums commented, “We are very optimistic about the future sales growth of our ongoing brand portfolio. Our guidance implies an approximate 16% sales increase in 2013 for these brands. Growth is expected from the continued strong sell-through of legacy fragrances for our largest brands, including Lanvin, Jimmy Choo and Montblanc. The coming year will also be one of our most ambitious for new product introductions with new women’s fragrance lines planned for Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and Van Cleef & Arpels. In addition, new fall 2013 initiatives are under development for the Boucheron, Balmain, Paul Smith, Repetto, Anna Sui and bebe brands.”
Mr. Madar concluded by saying, “We estimate that Inter Parfums will enter the new year with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of approximately $250 million. With our financial strength, creative talent, brand building expertise, and global distribution network, we are focused on exploring all opportunities to expand our portfolio by seeking to add new brands either on a proprietary basis or as a licensee.”
