Weaker-than-expected trend within RNB's JC and J-Store store concepts:
During the autumn 2007 season, RNB's JC and J-Store store concepts experienced a weaker-than-expected sales trend, noting a decrease of approximately 10% compared with the corresponding period in the preceding year.

The autumn 2007 collections did not satisfy customer expectations. Work on designing new concepts and concept expressions for JC and J-Store is under way and is expected to be completed in the next few months and be presented in time for the autumn 2008 collections.
