MILAN — The international financial crisis and heavy investment hurt Giorgio Armani SpA’s bottom line in 2008, and it is expected to see a further decline this year.
The company reported a 41.4 percent drop in net profits last year, to 128.1 million euros, or $188.3 million, from 218.7 million euros, or $299.6 million, the previous year. Consolidated revenues in 2008 rose 1.5 percent to 1.62 billion euros, or $2.38 billion. At constant exchange, the sales increase stood at 2.4 percent.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
