Revenue increased by 14%, including a negative currency impact of 5% and a positive structural impact of 7%, reflecting notably the integration of Christian Dior Couture. All business groups recorded double-digit organic growth, with the exception of Wines and Spirits, whose progress was limited by supply constraints.
