Royal Philips Electronics NV said its second-quarter profit fell to 720 million euros (approx. US$1.14 billion), down from 1.57 billion euros in the same quarter last year. Sales rose 6% to 6.46 billion euros ($10.23 billion), driven by sales of lighting and televisions in emerging markets that were boosted by viewer interest in the Euro2008 football championship.
