Global exporter Li & Fung Ltd's first-half net profit halved as price deflation and competition affected its main U.S. market, while the weak Chinese currency continued to hit its trading business. The Hong Kong-based company, which grew to prominence by making clothing and toys for Western retailers, said on Thursday its net profit for January-June plunged 51 percent to $72 million from $149 million a year earlier, its lowest half-yearly profit since 2004. The exporter, which supplies to firms such as Kohl's Corp and Wal-Mart Stores Inc, said core operating profit fell 14 percent to $156 million from $182 million.
