Chicago-based Sara Lee said Tuesday (8 August) that net sales for fiscal 2006 US$15.9bn, a decrease of 1% from 2005's result. For the fourth quarter, net sales were $4.1bn, up 2% from $4bn reported for the comparable period of last year. The results lead the company to concede that its $672m year-long restructuring programme will not produce the 12% profit margin by 2010 that chairman and chief executive Brenda Barnes had promised.
