Mammut Sports Group, the leading outdoor brand from Switzerland, reports a decrease in sales of 10.1 percent for the first six months of the current year and reached total sales of 85.4 million Swiss francs (€75.1m-$107.3m). In local currencies and disregarding the divestment of the Toko wax brand last year, sales would have been more or less stable. Among other negative factors, the Swiss company suffered from the hefty evolution of the local currency and from the weak winter season since early January. Mammut's parent, Conzzeta, increased its total net sales by 8.1 percent (and 19.2 percent in local currencies) to CHF 512.1 million (€450.3m-$643.8m); operating profit almost doubled to CHF 28.6 million (€25.2m-$36.0m).
