PARIS, Jan 20 (AFP) - The French consumer products group Bic posted Thursday 2004 sales of EUR 1.386 billion (USD 1.8 billion), an increase of 1.9 percent from the previous year.

Bic said in a statement that "growth in operating profit would be greater than that of sales."

Sales in the fourth quarter of 2004 came to EUR 340.9 million, an increase of 3.4 percent from the same period one year earlier.

The company, which makes throwaway consumer items such as ballpoint pens, razors and cigarette lighters, is to release full results on March 3.
