LONDON — De Beers SA reported a 99 percent decline in first-half net profit Friday, hurt by what the diamond mining company called the “historically difficult trading conditions” that it faced at the start of the period.
In the six months to June 30, net profit fell to $3 million from $316 million in the same period last year, while total sales fell 54.2 percent to $1.71 billion from $3.74 billion during the same period last year.

"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)
