MILAN — Aeffe SpA said Wednesday that sales in 2013 declined 1.2 percent to 251.1 million euros, or $331.4 million, compared with 254.1 million euros, or $325.2 million, in 2012. At constant exchange, sales would have increased 1.2 percent, and, net of the effects of the already terminated licenses of Jean Paul Gaultier and Cacharel and the new license with Emanuel Ungaro, revenues would have gained 3.9 percent.
Aeffe controls the Moschino, Alberta Ferretti and Pollini brands, and produces and distributes collections for brands including Emanuel Ungaro and Cédric Charlier.
