LONDON — While net profits at French Connection quadrupled to 1.6 million pounds, or $3.2 million at current exchange, in the financial year ended Jan. 31, compared to a profit of 400,000 pounds, or $808,700 in the previous year, a tough retail environment caused the British retailer’s pre-tax profits to take a 22.5 percent dive. 

The rise in net profit was entirely due to the absence of a one-off tax charge that the company paid in 2007, which negatively affected its profits last year, the company said Wednesday.
