Our profitability remained strong, with a record adjusted group net profit close to 3 billion euros and free cash flow at 2.4 billion euros.”

At the geographical level, the company said, both Asia Pacific and Latin America delivered growth of 10.3 percent at constant exchange and 12.7 percent, respectively, driven by China and Brazil. North America grew 5.9 percent in the fourth quarter, driven by both wholesale and retail, and EMEA rose 6.4 percent.

The company confirms its target of mid-single-digit annual revenue growth from 2022 to 2026 at constant exchange rates and expects to achieve an adjusted operating profit as a percentage of revenue in the range of 19 to 20 percent by the end of that period.

“We are confident that we will keep the pace and meet our long-term targets. After three years of strong results, the board of directors has unanimously agreed on the distribution of a dividend of 3.95 euros per share,” added Milleri and du Saillant.
