The organic growth amounted to 11%. Both business areas have good growth, with the Retail business area slightly stronger and especially within the sport sector, where the European championship in football made a positive contribution.

The group companies that are selling hard giveaways on the Swedish market DJ Frantextil and Sagaform, together with the group's production unit in Denmark, have been and still are under restructuring. This has now started giving results for Sagaform and Dahetra who are showing a positive development. DJ Frantextil however has not yet shown any positive development.

The sales growth was good in all regions, especially in the Nordic countries with an increase of 14%. The American units, particularly Orrefors Kosta Boda and Cutter & Buck, have been affected negatively by the weaker economic situation in the USA. Cutter & Buck sales within the golf sector are unchanged while the Promo business area is lower.
