LVMH's Rockstar H1 result helped by Champagne Sales - Dom Pérignon 2013
LVMH have announced yet another very successful H1 report, and once again, the Champagne and Wine business outperforms. H1 saw organic revenue growth of 5% YoY which is impressive given H2 last year boasted organic growth of 33% YoY. H1 23 Earnings growth was equally impressive at 7% YoY as margins continue to improve. The strong result was driven by Europe and Japan with margin improvements due to a firm price increase policy.
This result echoes the strong Champagne export data highlighted by the Comité de Champagne in January. We continue to see the global demand for Champagne increase and with a number of challenging harvests in 2016, 2019 and 2021, and expect demand for Champagne to outstrip supply for quite sometime.
China is currently #14 biggest importer of Champagne ahead of Denmark. The report shows China’s Champagne demand still lagging its potential however we expect this to be a massive price catalyst for the region in the mid to long term.
LVMH managed to increase margins despite inflationary pressure. This shows fine wine’s and Champagne’s inherent inflation hedging characteristics. The continued strong performance of LVMH’s Champagne division coupled with growing Champagne demand and supply constraints further strengthens Champagne’s investment case.
