Comment from the President
“Like many others in the industry, we experienced generally tougher market conditions during the first quarter. That is why we are especially pleased to report double-digit growth, although lower than before, and continued high profitability. We see this as proof that we are doing the right things – by building the brand and developing the business,” says President Nils Vinberg.
