The company reported a 30% fall in quarterly profits in the quarter that ended on December 31. Net profits of Estee Lauder fell to $158 million from $224 million in the same period last year. The company sales have been hurt by strong dollar and weak consumer spending. Sales fell across all categories, with skin care sales down 7 percent, makeup down 12 percent and fragrance down 20 percent. The scenario is not expected to improve in the coming fiscal and the global economic slowdown would continue to hurt sales- a company report said.
