Hermès reports solid performance
From January to September 2023, the French-based luxury group’s revenue reached 10.1 billion euros, increasing from the 8.6 billion euros recorded in the same period of last year
In the first nine months of the year, Hermès posted a revenue of 10.06 billion euros, up by 22% at constant exchange rates and by 17% at current exchange rates, on a comparable basis to the same months of 2022.  In the third quarter alone, sales grew by 16% at constant exchange rates, totalling 3.37 billion euros, as compared to the prior year’s period.

“The solid performance in the third quarter reflects the desirability of our collections all over the world, with still a sustained momentum in Asia and in the Americas. More than ever, in an uncertain global environment, we are reinforcing our investments and our teams to support growth”, commented Axel Dumas, Executive Chairman of the group.
