Sales: $1.587 billion* for fiscal year ended Dec. 31.
Leadership: Ronald O. Perelman, chairman-CEO; George Fellows, chairman, Revlon N.A.; Howard Gittis, vice chairman.
U.S. ad spending: $46.5 million in 1993, according to Competitive Media Reporting.
Lead agency: Tarlow Advertising, New York.
Recent success: Recently improved share in key cosmetics categories thanks to new-product introductions, key executive recruitments and color cosmetics advertising that distinguishes Revlon from the competition.
Problem spots: $2.082 billion* in debt amassed by Revlon Consumer Products Corp. and holding company Revlon Worldwide Corp. leaving company highly leveraged; a changed outlook for company by Standard & Poor's Ratings Group because of disappointing financial performance; and a trademark infringement suit by Procter & Gamble Co. Revlon disputes validity of both actions. Another question mark: Revlon's standing in the cosmetics rotation lineup of major magazines due to a contretemps with Hearst Magazines.
