NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Inter Parfums, Inc. (NASDAQ GS:IPAR) today announced that its majority
owned Paris-based subsidiary, InterparfumsSA, has extended
its license agreement with Montblanc by five years. The original
agreement, signed in 2010, provided InterparfumsSA with the
exclusive worldwide license to create, produce and distribute perfumes
and ancillary products under the Montblanc brand through December 31,
2020. The new 10-year agreement, which goes into effect on January 1,
2016, extends the partnership through December 31, 2025 without any
material changes in operating conditions from the prior license.

Interparfums SA’s annual sales for Montblanc now exceed €80 million, a
400% increase in just 4 years. Montblanc fragrances have met with
enormous worldwide success, driven in particular by performances from
the Montblanc Legend and Montblanc Emblem lines.

Jérôme Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of Montblanc, commented, “We are
very proud to announce the extension of our partnership with
Interparfums. The remarkable successes achieved in the last few years,
the result of our close collaboration, have naturally led us to renew
our confidence in Interparfums for the next 10 years.”

Jean Madar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Inter Parfums, Inc.,
added, “Montblanc fragrances have met with growing success since the
signing of our first license agreement, first with the Montblanc
Legend
line and then the Montblanc Emblem line. The work
accomplished upstream by the Maison has contributed considerably to this
success, and has allowed us to build a lasting position in the universe
of men’s fragrances. We are very pleased that this new license agreement
will reinforce our long-term visibility, by notably setting the stage
for developing a product offering in the women’s fragrance universe.”
