Interim report Q1 2014

"We delivered a good start for the year with a solid 6% growth and slightly improved gross margin, driven by broad-based double-digit growth in several of our strategic growth areas. During the quarter we also faced quite some challenges, including a mild winter which impacted adversely especially cross-country skiing, however the Winter Sports Equipment business showed remarkable resilience and even good growth in parts of the portfolio." 
 
A conference call for investors and analysts will be held today, April 24 at 3:00 pm EET.


 

Swimming the Northwest Passage

The Northwest Passage, spanning 3,000km from Pond Inlet, Nunavut, to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories, was daunting enough when Roald Amundsen became the first person to unlock its secrets back in 1906.

In 2016, the all-female Team Sedna will do it a new way — swimming with snorkels. This summer the team will go for a proof of concept expedition, boarding a 116 trawler for a 15-day to connect with local communities, build team cohesion, test their gear, and prove they can manage the distance.
