Sales development, September

Press Release

Turnover for the H&M Group increased in September 2005 by
7 per cent compared with the corresponding period last year.

The unusually warm weather in September, above all in Continental
Europe, has had a negative effect on sales of outdoor and heavy knitted
garments. This has been particularly noticeable in Germany, Austria and
Switzerland.
Sales on the Scandinavian markets have however been good.


Sales increase per month in per cent excluding currency rate changes:
