“We have ended another quarter of strange trading. The quarter started in the same way Q3 ended. There was a very warm weather in Europe, which meant that a major part of the seasonal sales was lost. It is obvious that the trading in the industry was driven by large inventories in the retail part of the business, general liquidity problem, and heavy discounts again. As usual Christmas sales were hurt by people shopping on discount during Black Friday and Cyber-Monday,” said Martin Nordin, executive chairman.
