COMMENT FROM THE PRESIDENT

“The first quarter of the year shared similarities with the end of 2009, with declining brand sales and consolidated revenue, but at the same time we are seeing positive signs. We have continued to improve in areas that we consider crucial to reaching our goal to be the best in the world in fashion underwear, including an increased number of new products, impactful campaigns and a new distributor in France”, said Arthur Engel.
