PARIS — Hermès International said Tuesday it expected to post a record operating margin in 2012 after comfortably beating its target for annual sales growth, thanks to a surge in revenues in the fourth quarter.
The maker of Birkin bags and silk scarves said sales totaled 1.04 billion euros, or $1.35 billion, in the fourth quarter, up 22.5 percent versus 2011. This represented a rise of 18.5 percent at constant exchange rates.

"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.
