Leading fashion chain Giordano International Ltd on Thursday posted a 9.5 per cent slide in full-year profit to HK$341 million (US$43.7m) from HK$377m in the year-ago period despite higher sales. The firm, famous for its jeans and khakis, said turnover rose 3.1 per cent to HK$3.59 billion from HK$3.48bn on the back of strong sales in China, Hong Kong and Singapore, but said its profit fell on provisions for the closure of its German operations.
