PARIS — Hennes & Mauritz on Wednesday said improved weather conditions in May lifted second-quarter profits and sales, helping make up for tough sales in early spring.
The Swedish fast-fashion giant said second quarter profits after financial items improved 6 percent to 5.43 billion kronor, or $839.3 million, boosted by a 25 percent sales gain in May after adverse weather conditions hamstrung sales in March and April. Sales in the second quarter rose 7.8 percent to 21.61 billion kronor, or $3.34 billion.

"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)
