Consolidated revenue for the Hermès Group reached 3,805 million euros in the first quarter of 2024, up 13% at constant currency and 13% at current exchange due to robust growth across all geographic regions.

The group affirms an aggressive target for revenue growth at constant exchange rates in the medium term, notwithstanding global economic, geopolitical, and monetary concerns.

“The solid sales growth in the first quarter of 2024 reflects the loyalty of our clients worldwide, the strength of the group’s artisanal model, and the desirability of our creations in a more complex environment,” stated Hermès executive chairman Axel Dumas in response to the company’s first-quarter performance.

Twenty percent more people were purchasing leather goods and saddlery, sixteen percent more people were purchasing ready-to-wear and accessories, eight percent more people were purchasing silk and textiles, and four percent more people were purchasing perfumes and cosmetics.
