By Conor Humphries. DUBLIN | Tue May 21, 2013 11:40am BST. DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland said on Tuesday it was not to blame for Apple Inc's low global tax payments after the U.S.
The drop in Marks and Spencers' profits - which mark the company's worst performance since 2009 - is being blamed on poor clothing sales.
UK fashion brand Burberry has reported a larger-than-expected rise in annual profits, helped by a strong performance in Asia. Pre-tax profits rose by a better-than-expected 14% to �428m ($652m).
Vodafone has recorded its first ever fall in annual revenues as the recession in southern Europe caused its takings there to dip by almost 17%.
