RPT-Bang & Olufsen Q2 profit lags forecats

(Repeats to additional alert with no changes to text)

COPENHAGEN, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Danish luxury stereo and television maker Bang & Olufsen reported on Wednesday a smaller-than-expected second quarter pretax profit blaming the closure of underperforming stores in Europe that hurt results.

Pretax profit reached 23 million Danish crowns ($4.03 million) in B&O’s September to November quarter, missing an average 65.5 million crown forecast in a Reuters poll of analysts.

“As a consequence of the accelerated store closings, the acquisition of the master dealer operations in mid-China and Brazil and the continued macroeconomic headwind, we revise the revenue outlook to revenue exceeding the 2011/12 financial year revenue of DKK 3,008 million,” the company said in a statement.
