PARIS Hennes & Mauritz AB said net profits rose 7 percent to 16.9 billion Swedish kronor, or $2.49 billion, in its fiscal year 2012.

The results, included in the Swedish retailer’s just-released annual report, were burdened by its ambitious investment strategy as well as negative currency translations.

Sales including VAT increased 8 percent to 141 billion Swedish kronor, or $20.8 billion, with the United States, Canada, China and Russia being H&M’s strongest markets.
