Company Overview

Coty is a global beauty company that sells fragrances (40% of fiscal 2019 revenue), color cosmetics (26%), hair care (25%), and skin/body care (9%). The firm licenses brands such as Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Gucci, and Davidoff for its fragrance portfolio. Coty's most popular color cosmetic brands are CoverGirl, Max Factor, Rimmel, OPI, and Sally Hansen. In hair care, the firm touts the Wella and Clairol brands. Francois Coty founded the firm in 1904 and it remained private until its 2013 IPO. It had focused on prestige fragrances and nail salon brands until the 2016 acquisition of Procter & Gamble's beauty care business. This nearly doubled the firm's revenue base, and launched it into consumer cosmetics and professional hair care.
