Retail group Limited Brands does not see a successful pattern with taking US apparel brands overseas, said chairman and CEO Leslie H Wexner in a conference call this week.

Wexner, addressing analysts, said there were possible market opportunities internationally but there wasn't sufficient profit to allow global growth in the near future. 
"A lot of people have tried, and we're thinking about figuring it out," Wexner said, but pointed out the difficulties other companies have had expanding abroad.
