2019 UNIVERSAL REGISTRATION DOCUMENT:
The 2019 Universal Registration Document was registered with the French Market Authorities on Tuesday 17 March 2020. It is available to the public under current regulatory conditions and may be consulted on the www.loreal-finance.com website (under Regulated Information / Universal Registration Document).
The Universal Registration Document comprises the annual financial report, an integrated report, the reports from the Auditors and their fees, the information required for the share buy-back programme and as well as a 2020 Outlook section.
The beginning of 2020 has been marked by the coronavirus epidemic (Covid-19) that will impact the beauty market in several geographic zones and Travel Retail for a period of time that is difficult to determine at this stage. Our first priority is the safety of our employees and we are taking all possible measures to protect those working in countries impacted by this epidemic.
The experience we have had with similar situations in the past (SARS, MERS, etcâ€¦) shows that after a period of disturbance, consumption resumes strongly.
At the time of filing this Universal Registration Document, assuming that this epidemic and consequent disturbance will not exceed a few months, and that it follows a similar pattern to previous cases, we are confident in our capacity this year again to outperform the beauty market and achieve another year of growth in both sales and profits.
