Comment from the President

“Developments during the first quarter show that despite a continued weak and uncertain market we see interest in the brand. At the same time we were positively affected by strong currency effects this quarter. In the strategic review we conducted this spring, we saw strong opportunities for our new vision: ‘to become the champion of fashion underwear.’ We will achieve this by being creative and innovative in terms of our range of underwear, but also by contributing to the profitability for our distributors and retailers,” says President Arthur Engel.
