BERLIN — First-quarter profits at Symrise AG rose 7 percent to 46 million euros, or $60.8 million, due to solid developments in emerging markets and strong performances in established ones, including those touched by the euro crisis, the company said.
"Once again, we enjoyed robust growth — growing faster than the market," said Heinz-Jürgen Bertram, Symrise's chief executive officer. "With the acquisition of the U.S. fragrance manufacturer Belmay, we took another strategic step towards further expanding our product portfolio and market presence in North America. We are therefore confident for the upcoming months of 2013.”

"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.
