Inter Parfums, Inc. is raising its 2013 guidance and is now looking for net sales to come in at approximately $540 million resulting in net income attributable to Inter Parfums, Inc.

Discussing 2014, Jean Madar, chairman and CEO of Inter Parfums, commented, “We are looking for solid growth in both our European and US-based operations. Expectations remain high for our largest brands, Lanvin, Jimmy Choo and Montblanc. Also, new fragrances for Repetto and Boucheron begin rolling out this fall and we have major new product launches for Balmain and Karl Lagerfeld coming to market in 2014.”

On the subject of US-based operations, Madar noted, “In 2014, our sales should benefit from recently signed license agreements with Alfred Dunhill, Agent Provocateur and Shanghai Tang for which we have new product launches planned. We will also introduce fragrances for a number of our established brands, and reinvigorate existing lines with new packaging.”

Russell Greenberg, executive vice president and CFO, noted, “As a result of the current strong performance of our brands, we have raised our 2013 sales guidance to approximately $540 million. As we reported last month, during the second half of the year, we are investing heavily in promotion and advertising to bolster support for the aforementioned product launches and the continued worldwide development of our largest brands.”
