Estee Lauder Companies (NYSE: EL) shares are trading lower after the company reported worse-than-expected fourth-quarter EPS and sales results.

“Through the Post-COVID Business Acceleration Program announced today, we are better aligning our brick-and-mortar footprint to improve productivity and invest for growth. We are well-positioned to drive growth as the market dynamics support it, yet remain equally mindful of the effects of COVID-19 on consumers, the retail sector and economics, in general, as well as geopolitical uncertainty," said Fabrizio Freda, President and Chief Executive Officer.
