Apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch said net income rose in the fourth quarter as it opened stores abroad. Revenue in stores open at least one year, however, fell 4 percent.

The company said it earned $157.2 million, or $1.95 per share, during the period, compared to $45.8 million, or 52 cents, a year ago. Revenue rose 11 percent to $1.47 billion.
