PARIS — With days to go until the Summer Olympics kickoff, Adidas AG said Tuesday that second-quarter earnings rose 12 percent, while sales advanced 5 percent.
For the quarter ended June 30, the world’s second-largest sporting goods maker after Nike saw its earnings increase to 116 million euros, or $181.3 million at average exchange for the period, thanks to higher operating profits plus a lower tax rate.
