Inter Parfums, Inc. reported net sales increased 12.3% to $121.1 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011, up from $107.8 million. Sales by U.S.-based operations were $14.6 million, down 8.2% from $15.9 million. Through the first half of 2011, net sales were $254.4 million or 12.0% ahead of $227.1 million in the first half of 2010.
“Although second quarter net sales by European-based operations were 16% ahead of last year, they fell short of expectations," said Russell Greenberg, executive vice president and CFO, Inter Parfums. "The comparable quarter increase in sales by European-based operations was, in great part, due to the commencement of prestige product distribution in the U.S. by our subsidiary, Interparfums Luxury Brands.”
