Business Description

Revlon, Inc. (and together with its subsidiaries, the "Company") conducts its business exclusively through its direct wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Revlon Consumer Products Corporation ("Products Corporation") and its subsidiaries. Revlon, Inc. is an indirect majority-owned subsidiary of MacAndrews & Forbes Incorporated (together with certain of its affiliates other than the Company, "MacAndrews & Forbes"), a corporation wholly-owned by Ronald O. Perelman.

The Company was founded over 80 years ago by Charles Revson, who revolutionized the cosmetics industry by introducing nail enamels matched to lipsticks in fashion colors. Today, the Company continues Revson's legacy by producing and marketing innovative products that address consumers' wants and needs for beauty and personal care products.

The Company currently operates in three segments: the consumer division (“Consumer”); the professional division (“Professional”); and Other. The Professional segment consists entirely of the business acquired pursuant to Products Corporation's October 9, 2013 acquisition of The Colomer Group Participations, S.L., a Spanish company now known as Beautyge Participations, S.L. ("Colomer," the "Colomer Acquisition" and the "Colomer Acquisition Date," respectively) The Other segment includes the business acquired pursuant to the Company's April 2015 acquisition of the CBBeauty Group and certain of its related entities (collectively "CBB" and, such transaction, the "CBB Acquisition").

The Company manufactures, markets and sells worldwide an extensive array of beauty and personal care products, including color cosmetics, hair color, hair care and hair treatments, as well as beauty tools, men's grooming products, anti-perspirant deodorants, fragrances, skincare and other beauty care products. The Company believes that its global brand name recognition, product quality, R&D, new product innovation and marketing experience have enabled it to create leading global consumer and professional brands.

The Company’s Consumer segment is comprised of products that are manufactured, marketed and sold in large volume retailers, chain drug and food stores, chemist shops, hypermarkets, general merchandise stores, the Internet/e-commerce, television shopping, department stores, one-stop shopping beauty retailers, specialty cosmetic stores and perfumeries in the U.S. and internationally under brands such as Revlon, Almay, SinfulColors and Pure Ice in cosmetics; Revlon ColorSilk in women’s hair color; Revlon in beauty tools; and Mitchum in anti-perspirant deodorants. The Consumer segment also includes a skincare line under the Natural Honey brand and hair color line under the Llongueras brand that are sold in large volume retailers and other retailers, primarily in Spain, which were acquired as part of the Colomer Acquisition.
The Company's Professional segment manufactures, markets and sells professional products primarily to hair and nail salons and professional salon distributors in the U.S. and internationally under brands such as Revlon Professional in hair color, hair care and hair treatments; CND in nail polishes and nail enhancements, including CND Shellac and CND Vinylux nail polishes; and American Crew in men’s grooming products. The Professional segment also includes a multi-cultural hair care line consisting of Creme of Nature hair care products, which are sold in both professional salons and in large volume retailers and other retailers, primarily in the U.S.

The Other segment includes the operating results of the CBB business and related purchase accounting for the CBB Acquisition. CBB develops, manufactures, markets and distributes fragrances and other beauty products under various celebrity, lifestyle and fashion brands licensed from third parties, principally through department stores and selective distribution in international territories. The results included within the Other segment are not material to the Company's consolidated results of operations.

The Company believes that it is an industry leader in the development of innovative and technologically-advanced cosmetics and beauty products. The Company's marketing and research and development groups identify consumer needs and shifts in consumer preferences in order to develop new products, introduce line extensions and promotions and redesign or reformulate existing products to satisfy consumers' needs and preferences. The Company's research and development group is comprised of departments specialized in the technologies critical to the Company's various product lines. The Company has a rigorous process for the continuous development and evaluation of new product concepts, led by executives in marketing, sales, research and development, and including input from operations, law and finance. This process has created a comprehensive, long-term portfolio strategy that is intended to optimize the Company's ability to regularly bring to market innovative new product offerings and to effectively manage the Company’s product portfolio.

The Company operates an extensive research and development facility in Edison, New Jersey for products within its Consumer segment. The Company has research facilities for its products within the Professional segment in the U.S. (in California and Florida), Spain and Mexico. The scientists at these various facilities are responsible for all of the Company’s new product research and development worldwide and performing research for new products, ideas, concepts and packaging. The Company’s package development and engineering function is also part of the greater research and development organization and fosters a strong synergy of package and formula development, which is integral to a product’s success. The research and development group performs extensive safety and quality testing on the Company’s products, including toxicology, microbiology, efficacy and package testing. Additionally, quality control testing is performed at each of the Company’s manufacturing facilities.

The Company markets extensive product lines covering a broad range of price points within large volume retailers in the U.S. and within large volume retailers and other retailers internationally.

The Company uses social media and other digital marketing, television, outdoor and print advertising and public relations, as well as point-of-sale merchandising, including displays and samples, coupons and other trial incentives. The Company's marketing is designed to emphasize a uniform global image for its portfolio of core brands. The Company coordinates its marketing and advertising campaigns, such as its Revlon Love Is On campaign, with in-store promotional and other marketing activities. The Company develops, jointly with retailers, customized, tailored point-of-purchase and other focused marketing programs.

The Company also uses cooperative advertising programs, Company-paid or Company-subsidized demonstrators, and coordinated in-store promotions and displays. Other marketing strategies, including trial-size products and couponing, are designed to introduce the Company's newest products to consumers and encourage trial and purchase in-store.

In the Professional segment, the Company also markets products through educational seminars on such products' application methods and consumer benefits. In addition, the Company uses professional trade advertising, social media and other digital marketing, displays and samples to communicate to professionals and consumers the quality and performance characteristics of its products. Additionally, in countries where the Professional segment has operations, the Company's direct sales force provides customers with point of sale communication and merchandising.

The Company believes that its presence in professional salons will provide benefits to its consumer products business as it will enable the Company to improve its anticipation of consumer trends in hair color, hair care, nail color, nail care and skin care, as these trends often appear first in salons. The Professional business also provides the Company with broader brand, geographic coverage and retail diversification beyond large volume retailers, among others. The Company also expects the Colomer Acquisition to continue to provide it with opportunities to achieve additional growth by leveraging the combined Company's enhanced innovation capability and know-how.

Additionally, the Company maintains separate websites, www.revlon.com, www.almay.com, www.revloncolorsilk.com, www.revlonprofessional.com, www.americancrew.com, www.cnd.com and www.mitchum.com, devoted to the Revlon, Almay, Revlon ColorSilk, Revlon Professional, American Crew, CND and Mitchum brands, respectively. Each of these websites feature product and promotional information for the brands and are updated regularly to stay current with the Company's new product launches and other marketing, advertising and promotional campaigns.
