BERLIN — Difficult market conditions, adverse currency effects and portfolio changes buffeted sales and EBIT before special items at The Metro Group in the first quarter but thanks to a lower tax rate, net profits almost quadrupled in the three-month period ending Dec. 31.


In final figures released Tuesday net profit at the German cash & carry, department store, hypermarket and electronics retail group surged to 514 million euros, or $699.6 million in the quarter, compared to 129 million euros,  or $167.3 million, for the period a year previously.
