Agricultural trading group Louis Dreyfus Company B.V. managed to eke out a small increase in net profit in the first half of 2016 despite "erratic" market conditions and a tough economic backdrop taking their toll on sales. Louis Dreyfus, one of the traditional big four agricultural commodity traders, has been grappling with a period of ample supply, lower prices and slower economic growth that have cut margins, while also going through a leadership shake-up under main shareholder Margarita Louis-Dreyfus. The company said on Thursday that net income was $135 million compared with $130 million in the first half of 2015, while operating profit for its business segments fell to $546 million from $638 million as net sales dropped to $23.5 billion from $26.4 billion.
