“Forbes had been estimating that her business, which has little overhead, was notching 44 percent net margins. But Coty’s filings indicate that Kylie’s profits are likely lower than we figured, since her EBITDA margin — which factors in some, but not all, of her expenses — is only around 25 percent,” the Forbes report read.
