Kristofer Tonström, CEO and President: Also in June, we hit the mark with our customer offering and organic sales increased by 5 per cent and 7 per cent in comparable units. Thus, we managed to maintain the positive sales trend from May. Especially, the development in Norway was positive, where the organic sales increase was 12 per cent. Typical seasonal products contributed positively, but above all the sales growth was the result of broad increases for many product categories. This gives us further confidence in our work to make our assortment even more relevant during all months of the year. Macro factors such as inflation and currency effects continue to affect our business and our work on reducing costs is, and will be, a prerequisite for being able to develop the assortment, maintain a high level of service and maintain our strong price position.
