MILAN — Costs related to its initial public offering dented Brunello Cucinelli SpA’s net profits, causing them to drop to 7.6 million euros, or $9.8 million, in the first half from 8.8 million euros, or $12.7 million, in the corresponding period last year.
However, “normalized” net profits, which do not include the non-recurring expenses incurred for the IPO, gained 35.1 percent to 11.9 million euros, or $15.3 million, in the period ended June 30, compared with 2011. The company went public on the Italian Stock Exchange on April 27.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
