PARIS — PPR eked out a 1.7 percent gain in third-quarter sales to 4.94 billion euros, or $7.44 billion, with modest gains in luxury goods and at Puma offsetting weakness at its retail arm.
“Overall, PPR performed well in the difficult conditions we encountered in the third quarter,” Jean-François Palus, PPR’s chief financial officer, told a conference call Thursday. “We are very much focused on cost control and efficiency of operations in all our brands, including luxury brands.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
