LVMH posts 23% profit growth amidst CN business disruptions

Lower revenues were seen in Asia due to lockdowns in China.

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton reported its group share of net profit rose 23% year-on-year to €6.532b in the first half of the year despite lower revenues in Asia. 

LVMH recorded sharp increases in Europe and the United States. It however saw a lower level of growth in Asia after it was dragged by its China market, resulting from new health restrictions in place.

“We approach the second half of the year with confidence, but given the current geopolitical and health situation, we will remain vigilant and count on the agility and talent of our teams to further strengthen our global leadership position in luxury goods in 2022,” Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, said.
