BEIJING — Li Ning, China's homegrown sportswear giant, said Monday it narrowed its full–year losses and saw lower sales amid a restructuring overhaul to streamline its retail business.
The company posted a loss of 392 million renminbi, or $63.27 million at average exchange rates, compared with a loss of 1.98 billion renminbi, or $313.24 million, a year ago. Sales for the 12 months ended Dec. 31 declined 12.8 percent to 5.8 billion renminbi, or $936.12 million, as the company closed hundreds of stores and reduced inventory nationwide. All dollar figures are based on average exchange rates for the time periods to which they refer.

"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.
