MILAN — Growth in all product categories, except watches, as well as booming sales in the U.S. and China helped Bulgari SpA trim losses in the first half to 7.7 million euros, or $10.2 million.
This compares with a net loss of 40.5 million euros, or $53.8 million, in the same period last year. The Rome-based company said its performance in the period ended June 30 was “negatively affected” by costs derived from exchange-rate hedging and, in particular, “from the unexpected strong rise” of the Swiss franc against the euro. Bulgari underscored that net profit in the second quarter totaled 600,000 euros, or $762,000.

"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.
