For the six months ended last Dec. 31, Visbilia posted a turnover of €13,522,000, up by 24 percent over the figure recorded for the same period of the previous year. The doubling of the group's sales force in Italy to a total of 43 sales agents by January 2007 contributed to the group's achievement. The Italian, Spanish and German subsidiaries all achieved double-digit growth, with Blumarine, Trussardi and Mandarina Duck coming out as the best-performing brands. A recent new line, Jeckerson, also scored well in Italy.
