MILAN — Italian online fashion retailer Yoox Group SpA on Wednesday said first quarter net profits dropped slightly on the same period of 2013, to 1.1 million euros, or $1.45 million, from 1.2 million euros, or $1.57 million, mainly due to higher depreciation and amortization costs following investments in innovation, technology and in the firm’s distribution platform. Net revenues, at 110.4 million euros, or $145.73 million, jumped 21.4 percent following double-digit sales growth at the company’s multi- and mono-brand businesses as well as strong sales gains in all the firm’s geographic markets.
Dollar amounts have been converted at average exchange rates for the periods to which they refer.

"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.
