Estée Lauder's FY fragrance sales soar 9%

Aug '05
Skin care products manufacturer and marketer The Estée Lauder Companies Inc reported net sales for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2005 of $6.34 billion, a 9% increase over the $5.79 billion reported in the prior year. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, net sales rose 7% for the year.

- EPS from continuing operations, before special tax charge, up 17% to $1.90 for full year; up 36% to $.42 for fourth quarter

- Company provides fiscal 2006 expectations

- Makeup net sales for the year rose 13%

- Fragrance sales rose 9%

- Hair care was up 2%

- Net sales of skin care products for the year increased 10% to $2.35 billion

- Operating income improved in skin care, makeup and fragrance due to the net sales growth

For the full fiscal year 2005, the Company reported net earnings from continuing operations of $406.1 million, up 8% from $375.4 million last year. Diluted earnings per common share from continuing operations for the year rose 10% to $1.78 from $1.62 reported in the prior year. Fiscal year 2005 results included a special tax charge related to the Company's intention to repatriate, in fiscal 2006, $500 million of extraordinary intercompany dividends under the provisions of The American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (the "AJCA").

This action resulted in an incremental tax charge, recorded in the fourth quarter, of $27.5 million, or $.12 per diluted share. Excluding the special tax charge, net earnings from continuing operations for fiscal year 2005 increased 16% to $433.6 million, and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 17% to $1.90. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures for fiscal 2005 can be found on page 8 of this press release.
