Fast Retailing, the corporate parent of Uniqlo, said Thursday it saw higher sales in the first nine months of the year but its profits slid substantially, due in part to a strong yen. The currency impact also prompted it to trim its full-year earnings forecast for the third time this year.
Asia's largest clothing retailer said net profit for the nine months through May slid 46.4 percent to 71 billion yen, or $617.7 million at average exchange for the period. Sales at the Japanese company grew 6.4 percent to 1.43 trillion yen, or $12.48 billion.

"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.
