Teen apparel maker American Eagle's quarterly profit nearly halves

Aug 23 (Reuters) - American Eagle Outfitters Inc reported a quarterly profit that nearly halved mainly due to restructuring charges.

Net income fell to $21.2 million, or 12 cents per share, in the quarter ended July 29, from $41.6 million, or 23 cents per share, a year earlier.

The company said it incurred $21 million related to restructuring charges on conversion of company-owned and operated stores in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and China to licensed partnerships.
