Coty Makes Paris Dual Listing Official – WWD

Coty is officially moving ahead with its dual listing plans on the Paris Stock Exchange.

The wonder company, whose brands include Covergirl, Lancaster and Kylie Cosmetics, announced the launch of a worldwide offering of 33 million shares of Coty’s outstanding Class A typical stock.

Coty has applied for the listing and trading of its Class A typical stock on the skilled segment of Euronext Paris. Investors will then have the choice to buy Coty shares either in euros for shares listed on Euronext Paris or dollars for shares listed on the Latest York Stock Exchange. The completion of the proposed offering is subject to a lot of conditions.

In an interview with WWD in May, Coty Inc chief executive officer Sue Y. Nabi explained why the corporate was mulling a dual listing.

“European investors wish to buy Coty stock. It’s so simple as this,” she said. “That is the correct moment to achieve this. Eleven quarters in line or ahead of expectation is a superb moment to begin this. I’d say that on the Paris Stock Exchange half of the market cap is made with beauty and luxury corporations, and we’re a beauty and luxury company.”

The news comes just days after Coty raised its full-year sales outlook because the fragrance effect shows no sign of slowing.

The wonder company, which holds the fragrance licenses for myriad brands reminiscent of Gucci and Hugo Boss, said that within the 4 weeks because it released its latest quarterly earnings it has seen strong momentum in beauty demand across key markets and categories, particularly in prestige fragrances as Burberry Goddess sets latest market records.

In consequence, Coty is now expecting core like-for-like sales growth of between 8 percent and 10 percent for fiscal 2024, up from its earlier guidance of 6 percent to eight percent.

At the identical time, Coty lifted its adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization forecast to between about $1.08 billion and $1.09 billion, from a spread of $1.07 billion to $1.08 billion.

Nevertheless, the corporate made no changes to its earnings per share forecast, which is anticipated to hit a spread of between 44 cents and 47 cents, below Wall Street estimates of 48 cents.
