RAPAPORT... Berkshire Hathaway, the conglomerate chaired by Warren Buffett, reported retail revenue increased 6 percent to $3.81 billion in the second quarter of 2016. Growth was driven by acquisitions of an automotive dealer and a motorcycle gear retailer, while the business unit also includes jewelry stores Borsheims, Helzberg and Ben Bridge.

Sales from Berkshire Hathaway’s consumer-product manufacturing businesses, including jewelry unit Richline Group, surged 19 percent to $2.85 billion. The increase was also attributed to growth at businesses other than jewelry. Berkshire Hathaway’s group revenue increased 6 percent to $54.46 billion and profit jumped 25 percent to $5 billion during the quarter.

During the first six months of the year, retail revenue surged 29 percent to $7.34 million and sales at the consumer-product manufacturing units increased 13 percent to $5.25 billion.
