As announced in Björn Borg’s latest interim report, the operations in the Chinese market have not developed as expected and the company does not believe that the local partner can contribute to achieving the established goals. Against this background a decision has been made to discontinue Björn Borg’s operations in China in 2013.
The discontinuation is not expected to have any significant financial consequences for the Björn Borg Group beyond the operating losses already planned for the current year. As of 2014 the company no longer anticipates any expenses related to China.
