CEO's comments : During the spring, the fashion market was slightly weaker than in previous quarters. Our ability to demonstrate continued steady development in such a market is highly encouraging and indicates that KappAhl has a strong offer that appeals to our customers. However, global uncertainty may lead to caution on the part of our customers.

This makes it difficult to assess the near future, at the same time as these conditions could also bring new business opportunities for operations of our type. We are also pleased to be able to state that growth from new stores will increase, as we now have contracts for 56 new stores.

KappAhl is a leading fashion chain with around 4,000 employees and nearly 300 stores in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Poland. KappAhl sells value-for-money fashion to a number of target groups - men, women and children - but focuses particularly on women between 30 and 50. All clothes are designed by in-house designers.
