Kristofer Tonström, CEO and President: Total sales in April increased by 17 per cent compared with the previous year. Our customer offering during the month was well received, for example our focus on our range of solar cell lighting was very successful. In addition, we have continued to invest in campaigns and marketing to drive growth and see good results from this work, not least in the Finnish market. Just as in March, the comparative figures for our online sales in April are characterised by the fact that large parts of the Norwegian store network were closed last year due to restrictions. In total, our online sales decreased by 29 per cent.
