QUOTE FROM THE CEO
“This year’s first quarter was mixed. We saw increases in revenue, gross profit margin and operating margin, mainly because of shipment delays from the previous quarter until the first quarter of 2014. Better profitability in the Swedish wholesaling operations and a strong performance by our operations in England and Finland contributed positively at the same time that sales of our spring and summer collections decreased compared with the previous year,” said Henrik Fischer, Acting CEO.
