Estee Lauder Companies Inc.'s ELC Online subsidiary has agreed to outsource to Global Sports Inc. certain aspects of e-commerce for cosmetics retailer

Global Sports, King of Prussia, PA, will host and handle the technology platform supporting, plus fulfillment and customer service. It also will host the sites of Estee Lauder's Estee Lauder, Origins, M.A.C. and Bobbi Brown. and Estee Lauder brands will still control design, merchandising and marketing of the sites.

The company on April 30 said it would take charges of $57 million for goodwill write-off and restructuring, including severance to 33 employees and the closure of the San Francisco office. operations are now in New York.
