Comment from the President

“Björn Borg continues to grow steadily – at a slower pace but with strong growth figures in several markets, not least
our newer markets, of which England is the most gratifying. Our largest market, the Netherlands, also continues to
report high growth. We are now taking another step to increase our international presence through a distribution
agreement in Canada, a new and exciting market for us,” says President Nils Vinberg.
