RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS has entered into an agreement with Åhléns AB to divest RNB’s stores at NK Stockholm and NK Gothenburg. The divestment provides RNB with the possibility to focus time and resources on the remaining core operations – Polarn O. Pyret, JC and Brothers & Sisters – while considerably strengthening the company’s financial position. The purchase consideration amounts to SEK 440 M on a debt-free basis and is to be paid in cash.

February 6, 2009 – JC, Brothers and Sisters removes products made of down
As a consequence of information given concerning the cruel plucking of down from living geese in the investigative TV program Kalla Fakta the other day RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS have analysed the assortment of down both for own- and external brands.
Polarn O. Pyret do not have any products made of down in its assortment.
During the Autumn 2008 and Winter 2009, JC have had a down jacket under private label. We have received information from our supplier that the down used in the jacket comes from not living animals. However with respect for the great uncertainty presented in the program regarding the valid ness for these guarantees and certificates we have decided to terminate the selling of the product until we receive reliable guarantees of origin and methods of production.
Brothers and Sisters do not have any products made of down under private label in the assortment and have decided to refrain from the selling of down products until reliable guarantees regarding country of origin and method of production is available.
The business area Departments Stores today have a number of external brands that do sell products made of down. We have started to contact our suppliers in this matter and specifically to receive a validation of origin and insight into production.
February 2, 2009 - Production of down – Kalla Fakta
On Sunday, February 1, the investigative TV program Kalla Fakta contained a feature depicting the plucking of down from living geese for the manufacture of products made of down. The plucking of down from living animals, which entails very painful treatment of the geese, is not permissible in Europe.
During the autumn, JC sold down jackets that were manufactured in China. Due to this, we have contacted the supplier concerned and asked where the down for these products originated. According to the information received from our supplier, the down used in JC’s jackets is produced in China and comes from animals that had been destroyed prior to being used in meat production.
With respect to our external brands, we will urge suppliers to ascertain the origins of any down contents and how the down was produced.
The treatment of animals in the manner depicted in the Kalla Fakta program is not compatible with RNB’s animal care policy (read more under Our Responsibility) and we will be following up any new information on the matter with our suppliers.

POWER OF ATTORNEY
Regarding recent news in Australian media concerning RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS and mulesing ban.
We have not been persuaded by any animal rights group to boycott Australian wool.
We have been listening to what several organisations, animal welfare expertise, media and companies from many parts of the world have had to say in the matter and our conclusion is not to boycott any country.
RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS thoroughly disapproves of all types of unethical and cruel treatment of animals at every level of our purchasing chain. Accordingly, we are completely opposed to traditional and routine use of mulesing without pain relief in order to prevent flystrike on merino sheep in Australia.
RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS demands that the Australian wool industry comply with its commitment to phase out mulesing by 2010. Until 2010, RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS will steer the purchasing of wool required for its own production to suppliers that can offer alternatives that are currently superior to mulesing without pain relief.
The compulsory redemption process has been completed
The compulsory redemption process for the 1.5% of the shares outstanding in JC has now been completed in the arbitration board in Stockholm. The ruling becomes legally effective at the end of April and the average share price for JC shares outstanding is set at SEK 46.98. Payment will be made during May.
Entire report on the first quarter 2007/2008
RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS released its entire report on the first quarter of the 2007/2008 fiscal year on Tuesday, January 29 at 7 a.m.

Profit warning and change in management within JC, J-store
On January 16, through a press release, RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS announced weaker-than-expected performance within the company’s store concepts JC and J-Store. The JC and J-Store concepts showed a weaker-than-expected sales trend during the autumn, with sales declining by approximately 10% compared with the year-earlier period. President and CEO of RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS, Mikael Solberg, has been appointed acting President of JC, succeeding Cecilia Tufvesson Marlow, who has decided to leave the company.
The company estimates that the negative impact of the declining sales on earnings amounted to approximately SEK 20 M.
RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS’ net sales in the first quarter of the 2007/2008 fiscal year amounted to SEK 923.7 M (889.8) and operating profit for the quarter amounted to SEK 81.5 M (86.8).
Europe’s 500 Award Certificate
RNB RETAIL AND BRANDS is proud to be one of the 500 fastest-growing companies in Europe. We received this recognition due to our sharp increase in sales as well as for creating job opportunities. The criteria for the award is an increase in sales as well as the number of employees of at least 30 percent during the most recent three-year period.
