The white-hot nail-care category added a glossy finish to Revlon Inc.’s fourth quarter, in which sales rose 8.8 percent.
The mass-market beauty firm’s net income for the quarter ended Dec. 31 was $46.5 million, or 89 cents a diluted share, compared with $36.4 million, or 70 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. The company’s net sales in the quarter were $391.3 million, compared to $359.8 million in the year-ago period, driven in part by Revlon cosmetics, SinfulColors nail polishes and the inclusion of the Pure Ice nail color brand, which the company acquired in July. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation, sales rose 9.3 percent.
