QUOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
“During the third quarter a number of new products reached stores, including constructed bras and boxer shorts, and the pace of product development remained high. The footwear operations licensed out at the beginning of the year are developing positively, and we feel that focusing the Group’s resources on our main area, underwear, is producing results. As a whole, the third quarter showed that the positive trend earlier in the year is continuing. We were able to report higher sales as well as improved income and favorable margins”, says Arthur Engel.
