Tod’s Group SpA on Thursday joined the list of luxury groups registering declining or slowing growth as the Italian firm reported a 26 percent drop in net profits in the first half to 56.1 million euros, or $76.9 million, as sales slowed due to a challenging environment in China, the continued rationalization of its Italian distribution network and the temporary closure in the U.S. of two key stores.
