PARIS — Robust gains in leather goods helped Hermès International post a 3.2 percent rise in first-quarter sales to 428.4 million euros, or $560.3 million.
At constant exchange rates, however, sales were down 4.7 percent. Revenues were pushed up by 33 million euros, or $43.2 million, as the U.S. dollar and Japanese yen appreciated against the euro. Dollar figures are converted from euros at average exchange rates.
