QUOTE FROM THE CEO
“Against the backdrop of a weak retail market in Europe, we are pleased to have been able to increase our revenues and operating profit during the third quarter. The work with Björn Borg’s future growth areas is continuing and we are seeing them contribute more to the Group’s performance. This applies to our own operations in England, which are growing at a positive pace, and the sportswear product area within Björn Borg Sport. In addition, we have now started selling in China and will very shortly open our first store,” said CEO Arthur Engel.
