STOCKMANN GROUP'S REVENUE IN NOVEMBER 2010

In November, the Stockmann Group's revenue (exclusive of VAT) exclusive of Hobby Hall's discontinued operations abroad amounted to EUR 153.8 million, up 10.1 per cent. In the Nordic market there was one trading day less than in November 2009.

Since the beginning of 2010, Hobby Hall has been a part of the Department Store Division. The Department Store Division's revenue includes Hobby Hall's figures, and the comparison figures have been adjusted accordingly. The Department Store Division's revenue increased by 12.3 per cent, up 3.0 per cent in Finland and up 48.7 per cent abroad. Strikes by Itella's (former Finland Post) sorting and delivery staff disturbed the Department Store Division's distance retailing business in November. Stockmann Nevsky Centre was opened in St Petersburg on 12 November and it contributed to a very good sales development in Russia, where the Department Store Division's euro-denominated revenue increased by 70 per cent.

Lindex's euro-denominated revenue increased by 8.3 per cent, down 0.5 per cent in Finland and up 9.5 per cent abroad. Development in the new markets in Russia and the Czech Republic continued to be strong.

Seppälä's revenue increased by 0.2 per cent. Revenue was slightly down (-2.4 per cent) in Finland and up 6.2 per cent abroad. Sales increased in all Baltic countries as well as in Russia and Ukraine.
