BERLIN — Second-quarter net profits at German cosmetics and household products company Henkel surged 257 percent to 150 million euros, or $204.3 million at average exchange, primarily because of restructuring charges that had affected the company’s net earnings in the year-ago period.
Earnings before interest and taxes rose 145 percent to 279 million euros, or $380 million. However, after adjusting for onetime gains and restructuring and other charges, EBIT decreased 17.2 percent to 308 million euros, or $419.5 million.

"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)
