Order deadline for spring and summer 2008 was this week and Odd Molly has received binding orders for the first six months 2008 for approximately MSEK 125 compared to MSEK 48.5 for the first six months 2007. This is an increase with 158 per cent compared to the same period 2007.Odd Molly is growing on both established as well as new markets. The increase in sales is further an effect from both higher average orders and increased number of retailers.
The strongest growth and the highest volumes are reported from Sweden, Norway and Denmark. We are very proud that the two very important fashion countries Great Britain and Italy have more than doubled their order volumes for the first six months 2008.
USA increased the order volumes more than 60 per cent for spring and summer 2008. Odd Molly has opened an administrative office and a subsidiary in USA during summer 2007 to manage all sales in USA.
After order deadline Odd Molly only produces the quantity of each article that has been ordered. Due to this business model almost no inventory is built up and inventory risk is minimized.
The four largest countries Sweden, Norway, Denmark and USA represent two thirds of the total order value for the first six months 2008.
Odd Molly has a wide network of independent retailers worldwide which minimizes risk. We are proud of being represented at leading stores like for example Fred Segal in USA, Selfridges in London, Galleries Lafayette in Paris, NK in Sweden, Isetan in Tokyo and many more. Odd Molly products are also sold at chain stores and department stores like Nordstroms and Anthropologie in USA and El Corte Inglés in Portugal, one of our new markets .
