Executive Summary

Chinese cosmetics brand arriving in U.S. department stores within 18 to 24 months, distribution partner Coty says. In preparing for the rollout, Yue-Sai's 150 SKUs have been repackaged in red containers and will arrive at 800 department store points-of-sale in China in September. In addition, Yue-Sai Coty Blanc Whitening Line will be reintroduced in China with new white and pale gray packaging in August. Chinese personality Yue-Sai Kan entered into a joint venture agreement with Coty in 1996 to bring the top cosmetics brand to the U.S. market; the expansion is still pending. Yue-Sai beauty sales total $40 mil. to $45 mil. annually, according to industry sources
