In the third quarter of 2013, the Etam Group posted sales of €290.1 million, including a negative currency impact of €2.2 million mainly related to the depreciation of the yuan against the euro. Sales were down 1.1% compared with the third quarter of 2012. Like-for-like and at constant exchange rates, sales increased by 1.1%.

Over the first nine months of 2013, the Etam Group generated sales of €886.9 million, including a negative currency impact of €0.7 million mainly related to the depreciation of the yuan against the euro. Sales were up 0.1% compared with the first nine months of 2012. Like-for-like and at constant exchange rates, sales were up 1.3 %.
