    COMMENT FROM THE PRESIDENT
    “A continued focus on our main area, underwear, stood out during the second quarter, which included the successful launch of our Kids collections for boys and girls and several successful product promotions. The trend has improved compared with the first quarter, and we were able to increase our sales and gross margin, while at the same time strengthening earnings. A solution is now in place for our British operations, where we are taking over ourselves to further develop this market. At the same time we are starting cooperations in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland,” says Arthur Engel.
