“The Group maintained sales momentum, and growth in the quarter was 16%, fuelled primarily by the Sports & Health segment, which grew by 26%, and Fashion, which saw a 23% rise in sales. In addition, Lekmer and Tretti displayed a continued healthy sales growth. Underlying cash flow from operations continued to improve during the quarter, amounting to SEK 72 million.

“All the measures and initiatives that have been implemented within Nelly.com over the past two years are gradually starting to produce results; growth has returned and the operating margin has improved, partly due to a logistics upgrade and a higher percentage of sales of private label products. Launches in France, Belgium and Poland, and NLY Man, are also progressing according to plan.
