Quote from the CEO

“In the second quarter we again saw that anything is possible, and at the same time that the Swedish national football squad showed that the team is stronger than the individual, our Swedish stores increased their revenues by 15 percent compared with the previous year. It had been some time since we had such strong growth for comparable stores. We also set a new record: Our gross margin has never been higher at nearly 60 percent,” said CEO Henrik Bunge
