For the first half of 2008, L'Oréal posted sales of 8.65 billion euros, or $13.23 billion at average exchange in the period, a 1.6 percent rise or 5.3 percent gain in like-for-like terms versus first-half 2007. Excluding currency fluctuations, the revenues uptick came in at 7.1 percent in the period.
