The brand Tiger of Sweden reported higher revenue and the brand Peak Performance suffered a revenue setback as expected.

• Revenue from the Mid Market segment suffered a setback of 15% to DKK 668 million (DKK 783 million) which was driven by a revenue consolidation of the core markets. The Mid Market segment consequently reported an operating loss of DKK 3 million (loss of DKK 3 million). The brands Jackpot and Cotton field are loss-making while the remaining
Mid Market brands are generating profit.
• Revenue from the Fast Fashion segment increased by 15% to DKK 231 million (DKK 201 million) and at the same time the Fast Fashion operating profit rose by DKK 19 million to DKK 22 million. The EBIT margin was thus 9.1% (1.1%).

• Order intake for the spring collection 2013 in respect of the Fast Fashion segment has been completed satisfactorily and an increase of 1% or DKK 7 million has been recorded. An unchanged level was expected for this segment.
The smaller summer collection is expected to record a total setback of 10%. The total order intake for H1 2012/13 recorded an increase of 2% for the Premium segment, a reduction of 13% for the Mid Market segment and the Fast Fashion segment is expected to record an increase of 11%.
• The brand portfolio has been changed from 11 brands to 3 clearly defined business segments. The restructurering is expected to reduce the Group’s complexity significantly. The responsibilities of the Group Management are changed in order to reflect the new organisation.
