BERLIN — Adidas-Salomon AG saw net earnings grow 10 percent to $247.8 million and sales rise 7 percent to $7 billion in 2002, according to preliminary figures released last week.
Earnings for the Herzogenaurach, Germany-based active sportswear group came in at the top end of the group’s forecasted earnings range, and translated to $5.45 a share compared with $4.98 in 2001. Adidas-Salomon said the increase was driven by both higher sales and gross margin improvements, and added that the acquisition of the remaining shares of Adidas Italy also contributed to the strong earnings picture.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
