Decimal Points?[edit]

The page shows the Operating Income as €5.263 million. With the decimal point interpreted in American style, as the other numbers given are. this would be absurd. The current (at this writing) Operating Income of LVMH is 7 220 (that is, 7 thousand millions, or 7 billion) for 2012 from http://www.4-traders.com/LVMH-4669/financials/ I'm guessing it's a typo, that 5 thousand millions (that is, 5 billion) was meant, but the ambiguity between Brit and Yank "billion" and american and european decimal points (inverting the sense of period and comma for decimal point and thousands separator) made it inconspicuous. I guess I should make the edit myself since I found a citation, but blah. Probably just a typo, but it's egregious; 5 million operating income on 30 billion in sales? whatever. Some finance geek can fix it up. Pete St.John (talk) 00:52, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

what the heck is with the abbreviation?[edit]

ok how the heck can LVMH be an abbreviation for something that doesn't even go in that order? this is stupid — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.74.198.180 (talk) 19:50, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
