On a Pro Forma, XFX basis, our Company grew net sales 1.4% for 2016 and increased Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA 9.7% over last year. These promising results were achieved despite foreign currency and macroeconomic challenges, and while managing significant organizational change.”

Elizabeth Arden Pro Forma segment profit increased 46.3%, which offset profit decreases of 2.3% for the consumer segment and 3.4% for the professional segment.
The international business performed well in all segments on a Pro Forma basis, offsetting decreases across the board in North America. In addition, fourth quarter net sales increased to $800.7 million on an as reported basic compared to $521.9 million.
As reported net income for the year was a loss of $21.9 million and a loss of $36.5 million in the fourth quarter.

Our strategy to drive long-term growth continues to focus on strengthening our iconic brands, continuing to build distribution in high growth channels, accelerating innovation and enhancing our digital capabilities.”
