Kristofer Tonström, CEO and President: After a somewhat weaker start of the month, we managed to finish the month stronger and increase sales by a total of nine per cent in December. Organic sales growth was six per cent while online sales increased by 26 per cent. Customer traffic to our stores was limited by restrictions in all sales markets, especially in Norway and Finland, and we continue to mitigate the volatile situation in the world around us by working with what we can influence ourselves. During the period, we saw that the good capacity of our logistics system benefitted our online sales and that increased campaign intensity and marketing contributed to sales growth.
