The net sales decline was driven by retail store closures as a result of the global spread of coronavirus that was partially offset by the tremendous acceleration online.

The Company reported net earnings of $0.68 billion, compared with net earnings of $1.79 billion last year.

Estée Lauder sees a net reduction in the range of up to 2,000 positions, primarily point of sale employees and related support staff in the areas that were the most disrupted, which is about 3% of its current workforce including temporary and part-time employees.

This reduction takes into account the elimination of some positions, retraining and redeployment of certain employees, and investment in new positions in key areas like online.
