Item 8.01 Other Events.


Avon Products, Inc. (the “Company”), after suffering the cyber incident communicated on June 9, 2020, is planning to restart some of its affected systems in the impacted markets throughout the course of next week. Avon is continuing the investigation to determine the extent of the incident, including potential compromised personal data. Nevertheless, at this point it does not anticipate that credit card details were likely affected, as its main ecommerce website does not store that information.


This report contains forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are not historical fact, but rather reflect the wishes and expectations of management. Words such as "anticipate," "wish," "expect," "foresee," "intend," "plan," "predict," "project," "desire" and similar terms identify statements that necessarily involve known and unknown risks. Known risks include uncertainties that are not limited to the impact of price and product competitiveness, the acceptance of products by the market, the transitions of the Company’s products and those of its competitors, regulatory approval, currency fluctuations, supply and production difficulties, changes in product sales and complexity of IT systems restoration, among other risks. This report is updated up to the present date and Company does not undertake to update it in the event of new information and/or future events.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
