The US group recorded losses valued in 294.2 million dollars in the previous fiscal year and sales stood at 2.56 billion dollars.
Revlon increased its losses. The US group of cosmetics closed fiscal year 2018 (ended on December 31) with 294.2 million dollars in the red, compared to 183.2 million dollar losses registered in 2017.
Between January and December of the previous year, the company placed its revenue at 2.56 billion dollars, which has meant a decline of 4.8% in comparison to 2.69 billion dollars that entered in 2017.
Revlon explained that these results are due to the drop in sales of all its business categories, except Elizabeth Arden, partly caused by the breaks in service levels, as well as the implementation of a new system of SAP (Systems Applications and Programs) in its offices in Oxford, North Carolina. On the other hand, the rise in losses is related to the re-acquisition of some rights connected to the brand Elizabeth Arden.
