Hermes reports Q4 and 2013 sales growth

The group sees rise in consolidated sales and continued momentum in fragrance

In 2013, Hermès group's consolidated revenue totalled €3,754.8m, a 13.0% rise at constant exchange rates. After adjusting for the negative impact of currencies, primarily due to the weakness of the Yen, the rise is 7.8%. In the fourth quarter, growth remained strong (+11.0% at constant exchange rates) despite a particularly high basis for comparison.

Perfumes (+15%) confirmed their momentum in 2013. The new fragrance for women Jour d'Hermès was warmly welcomed whilst Terre d'Hermès continued its growth and established its position as a classic male fragrance.
