Portfolio strategy

“IC Group’s mission is to create shareholder value through long-term and active ownership of Premium brands within the fashion industry.

By means of our simple Group structure, we create the most optimum framework for our Group Premium brands to exploit their potentials of continued growth and international expansion.”

Premium focused strategy

IC Group creates value through active ownership of brands in the Premium segment. We focus on this market segment as it has historically been characterized by strong growth rates and solid earnings. Furthermore, this segment is characterized by a high degree of internationalization which also forms the strategic target of the Group Premium brands.

As a Group, we hold strong competences within this segment in which we have succeeded in operating and developing brands. Historically, we have generated solid revenue growth and high earnings.

Group structure

All of the Group Premium brands are operated as independent business units with clearly defined strategic plans, and they are responsible of their respective earnings development.

Furthermore, the Group structure comprises central functions which are shared by all Group Premium brands. These infrastructure functions count Sourcing, Logistics, IT and Financial Shared Services. The overall target of these functions is to deliver costefficient and price-competitive services supporting the operations of each Premium brand.

Long-term ambitions for growth and earnings

The ambition of the Group Premium brands is to continue generating revenue growth, and thereby also for the Group as a whole. Concurrently with the expected higher revenue, it is also our ambition to improve the EBIT margin.
