Commenting on today’s announcement, Revlon President and Chief Executive Officer, Alan T.

We remain focused on building our strong brands by launching and appropriately supporting innovative new products and we are pleased with our new product launches so far this year.”

First Quarter 2012 Results

Net sales in the first quarter of 2012 were $330.7 million compared to $333.2 million in the first quarter of 2011. Excluding unfavorable foreign currency fluctuations of $4.0 million, net sales increased $1.5 million, or 0.5% compared to the first quarter of 2011. The first quarter of 2012 benefited from higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics and Revlon ColorSilk hair color, and the inclusion of the net sales of SinfulColors for a full quarter. These increases were partially offset by lower net sales of Almay color cosmetics and fragrances, as well as lower net sales in Venezuela due to the June 2011 fire at the Company’s local facility. In 2011, the results of operations from the SinfulColors acquisition were included in the consolidated financial statements commencing on the date of acquisition, March 17, 2011.
