Coty Prepared For Possibility That COVID-19 Revenue Recovery Could Be Years Away

Executive Summary

The beauty giant says it is selling its Professional Beauty and retail hair-care businesses to global investment firm KKR and targeting $700m in cost reductions over the next two and a half years. Coty already was in transformation mode prior to COVID-19, which drove a 23% decline in its third-quarter net sales, and it does not expect revenue levels to normalize anytime soon.
