Sales development in September 2016
As previously communicated in the nine-month report on 30 September 2016, the unseasonably warm weather in
September had a very negative impact on the H&M group’s sales in the month of September. The group’s sales in
September increased by 1 percent including VAT in local currencies compared to the same month 2015.
The total number of stores amounted to 4,204 on 30 September 2016 compared to 3,733 on 30 September 2015.
Percentage sales development for the month of October will be published on 15 November 2016.
