Q1 2018 Interim Report: Solid comparable growth, negative currency impact

"We achieved a solid 5% comparable net sales growth in Q1 and in emerging markets our comparable net sales growth was 8%. Currency headwinds were strong and they had a significant negative impact on reported net sales. In constant currencies our profitability was slightly ahead of previous year. During Q1 we were ramping up the new capacity in North America and the project is progressing according to our plan. Our high season is starting and we are confident about the growth momentum in our business.” CEO Jukka Moisio
