BERLIN — Portfolio changes, currency effects and a soft Christmas business negatively impacted Metro Group's first-quarter sales.
In preliminary figures released today, the German cash & carry, department store, hypermarket and electronics retail group reported a group sales decline of 3.3 percent to 18.7 billion euros, or $25.45 billion, for the three months ended Dec. 31.
Dollar figures are converted from the euro at an average exchange rate for the period 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.
