Quote from the CEO

“In summing up the second quarter there are several victories to celebrate with a big payoff from our focus on social media, where we are increasing awareness of our sportswear brand in Sweden and the Netherlands. We are strengthening our position in customer surveys on which underwear men prefer and we have successfully continued to establish performance underwear, i.e., functional underwear for both men and women. I can lastly add that our efforts in 2016 to improve deliveries and raise efficiencies have proven very successful. We are increasing delivery reliability at the same time that we reduced costs in the second quarter of 2017,” said CEO Henrik Bunge.
