On January 26, 2021, L’Occitane, Inc. filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey. The case is pending before the Honorable Michael B. Kaplan. The filing does not include the L’OCCITANE en Provence brand or any operations outside the U.S.; parent company L’Occitane International S.A. (Group); or any other Group subsidiaries, including ELEMIS and LimeLife.


The Company commenced this process to further accelerate a store footprint optimization plan that is part of a retail transformation already well underway to best position its business for the future. This initiative will allow the Company to create a sustainable U.S. store platform for the long term. The Company has ample liquidity to support ongoing operations across all channels and fulfill commitments to its valued employees, customers, and suppliers in the ordinary course during the process.


L’OCCITANE en Provence boutiques are open, and the Company looks forward to providing customers with the same extraordinary beauty experience, both in-store and online
