CHINA: Coty Inc. and Kosé Corporation have entered into a licensing agreement to distribute and manufacture Rimmel products in China. In September 2006, Kosé began distributing Rimmel products in Japan.

“By commencing distribution in China, Coty is accelerating the global brand presence of Rimmel and simultaneously continuing the elevation of Coty’s global presence,” said Bernd Beetz, chief executive officer, Coty Inc. “We look forward to bringing Rimmel products to China as we focus on accelerating our business growth in Asia.”
