German sports equipment manufacturer Adidas announced on Thursday that it had reached an agreement to sell its problem subsidiary Reebok for 2.1 billion euros to the American company Authentic Brands Group (ABG).

Reebok

The sum will be paid largely in cash and the transaction should be completed in the first quarter of 2022, after the approval of the competent authorities, the German group said in a statement.

At the beginning of August, the group had indicated that it was in the process of finalizing the sale of its subsidiary, which had already left the scope of activity since the start of 2021. “We have always appreciated Reebok and are grateful for the contributions of the brand and its teams. to our company, “said Kasper Rorsted, president of Adidas, quoted in a statement.

The group now intends to focus on strengthening the Adidas brand, he recalled. “It is an honor to be entrusted with the continuation of the legacy of Reebok,” commented Jamie Salter, founder and president of ABG, which manages the fashion brands JCPenney, Forever21 and Brooks Brothers in particular.

Adidas had acquired Reebok for 3.1 billion euros in 2006 with the aim of getting closer to its great American rival Nike.

Since its takeover by the German group, Reebok, specializing in women’s sportswear, has always been considered a problem child within the equipment manufacturer, regularly fueling rumors about a possible sale.

The brand was only worth 803 million euros on the group’s balance sheet after several accounting write-downs at the end of 2020. Reebok’s turnover had further increased by 2% in 2019, to 1.75 billion euros, a small part of the 23.6 billion euros of the entire Adidas group.

The sale of Reebok will have no impact on Adidas’ financial forecasts for the current year, the German group also said. At the beginning of August, the equipment manufacturer had raised its annual forecasts despite supply difficulties, especially in Vietnam and a good second quarter. From April to June, net profit group share stood at 397 million euros, against a loss of 295 million euros a year earlier, in the midst of the first wave of Covid-19

The Herzogenaurach (south) group is now targeting 20% ??annual sales growth and net profit between 1.4 and 1.5 billion euros.

London, August 12, 2021 (AFP) – British online clothing chain Boohoo has announced a five-year investment plan to create 5,000 jobs in the UK to meet growing demand.

Boohoo Group Karen Millen brand – Karen Millen/Boohoo Group

The company, created 15 years ago and headquartered in Manchester (northern England), plans to invest Ł 500 million in the country, according to a statement. This money will go towards opening additional warehouses and new IT systems, so that we can serve more customers more quickly.

The company also achieves around half of its sales abroad, particularly the United States and Australia. “The investments we are planning will help us to continue to grow, to increase the number of customers,” said John Lyttle, Managing Director. ?The growth of the company over the past 15 years has been phenomenal,? but ?it has not been without challenges,? he admits.

Boohoo’s image has been tarnished since last year by a scandal over deplorable working conditions at suppliers. In addition to press information, the association for the defense of workers’ rights Labor Behind the Label had denounced the working conditions with suppliers in England, in particular a level of wages well below the legal minimums.

The company commissioned a report in the wake that found no evidence that Boohoo had committed any crimes, but felt the group had turned a blind eye to the practices of its suppliers. In December, the daily The Guardian made new revelations, accusing Boohoo of selling items made in Pakistan by underpaid workers.

The group had appealed in November to a former judge to guarantee its good practices with the mission of supervising the improvements made in the choice of its suppliers and the respect of ethical rules in its supply chain.

Boohoo, which reaped the full benefits of the online shopping boom with the pandemic, has bought out bankrupt UK retail brands, such as the Debenhams department store and several from the fallen Arcadia clothing empire.

Tommy Hilfiger is never behind when it comes to launching innovative collaborations. Launched this August 12, this new line with Romeo Hunte shows that some are not idle while the small world of fashion is twiddling its thumbs in the Hamptons or going on parties in the Mediterranean.

TommyXRomeo

Soberly titled TommyXRomeo, this new collection embodies the encounter between the universe of the iconic American designer with Romeo Hunte and mixes the influences of their two neighborhoods: the BCBG style of Manhattan and the typical street-style of Brooklyn.

The result ? A vibrant, powerful and very intuitive collection that truly reveals the best of these two talents: a world-renowned industry veteran and the future darling of American fashion.

Romeo Hunte started making headlines when he was still a teenager, refusing a scholarship to the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). This university course would have seemed logical for a young man who learned to sew with his grandmother at the age of 13. From an early age, he reassembled his mother’s vintage clothes into new pieces. This is the story told by this first TommyXRomeo capsule, available this August 12.

Romeo Hunte studied fashion as a personal shopper before joining Prada’s marketing department. Tommy Hilfiger, on the other hand, did not go to the most famous fashion universities, but like Romeo Hunte has a sure instinct for business. At 20, he opened his first boutique with British-hippie-chic influences, called People’s Place and located in his provincial town of Elmira. It was in 1971.

Their partnership translates into canary yellow woven-pattern down jackets, bright orange military-inspired sleeveless jackets, shoulder straps, striking button-down shirts with multiple stripe patterns, and trendy, unstructured trench coats. Two accessories also seem destined for global success: ankle boots inspired by hiking shoes for the modern dandies and lace-up ankle boots with gabardine and denim heels for the elegant ones with strong character.

The duo started working on this capsule in January 2021. The complete collection was therefore carried out during the pandemic, but the two acolytes had already done a dress rehearsal two years before, with a collection of Romeo Hunte sold by Tommy Hilfiger. Given the success encountered, this collaboration was obviously the logical next step.

Along with launching his own brand, Romeo Hunte himself has become a much sought-after stylist and has already dressed celebrities like Beyoncé and Zendaya. He also signed a breathtaking Disco collection with Tommy, unveiled in March 2019 during an explosive show at Paris fashion week.

Tommy Hilfiger is probably the most respected living designer in the black American community. An entire generation of hip-hop, soul and rap legends have worn his designs, and the entrepreneur has signed multiple collaborations with artists of color over his long career. European journalists who rub shoulders with Tommy in New York are always pleasantly surprised at how popular he is with people of color of different generations.

This collaboration with TommyXRomeo is in line with this and is part of Tommy Hilfiger’s People’s Place program, created to allow young designers from discriminated ethnic communities to increase their visibility behind the scenes and on the front of the stage.

Tommy turned 70 in the spring, and Romeo is exactly half his age. We met the two men via video conference from the south of France to Tommy Hilfiger’s headquarters on Madison Avenue.

FashionNetwork.com: How did you meet?

Tommy Hilfiger : We got to know each other through a mutual friend over five years ago and I was immediately impressed with Romeo’s abilities. I began to accompany him informally, then officially. Already at the time, I really liked his work, his aesthetics and his passion and I found him to be very talented.

FNW: Romeo, what made you want to work with Tommy?

Romeo Hunte: It goes back to my childhood. I really liked Tommy’s collections, I admired his chic clothes and I started to make them my own and make them my own. But it wasn’t just the clothes that I liked: that’s what Tommy stands for, he understands it’s not just about clothes. It is an industry that represents something. Like me, he’s self-taught, and his advice on how to manage my career has been more than invaluable.

FNW: Romeo, how did this collection start?

RH : She started off really well, with the idea of ??grabbing something old and making something new. The fact that Tommy is such an iconic brand makes this concept even more powerful. By browsing the archives of the brand’s jackets and coats, I was able to tackle icons such as the trench coat, the perfecto or the blazer. I added mixtures of materials and hybrid ideas to give them new life.

I took a lot of Tommy’s pieces that I wore in the 1990s and refreshed them. Rather, I was interested in the fit, silhouette and merging of details, like drawstrings on a blazer or designing multiple ways to wear the trench coat. I wanted to reinvent the shape of a classic puffer jacket, or add embossed details. I even invented a hybrid accessory from Timberland.

FNW: Tommy, why was it so important to make this project part of the People’s Place program?

TH : We want to give a chance to emerging talents who do not necessarily have this possibility usually. We use our resources to open doors for them and guide them as they build their own brands.

FNW: What is the difference with your previous collaborations with Gigi Hadid, Lewis Hamilton and Zendaya?

TH: These collections were collaborations with celebrities. Here I am working with a real designer who has his own brand, which is still at an early stage of development. I use all my experience and my resources to support it and help it develop.

FNW: You or PVH [le propriétaire de Tommy Hilfiger] are you considering investing in Romeo Hunte?

TH : PVH is not investing in new brands at this time. But who knows what the future holds? Either way, Romeo might be in LVMH’s sights one of these days. He could take over the head of Louis Vuitton when Virgil Abloh retires!

FNW: Romeo, where exactly are you from in Brooklyn?

RH : From Flatbush. This is where I grew up and it’s a very varied culture, you really see everything. I’m still in Brooklyn today. Biggie [Smalls] came from this neighborhood and he’s one of the greatest rappers in the world. And Tommy has worked with legends like Missy Elliott or Beyoncé, so it’s really great to be a part of that too.

FN W: Did you cut out archive pieces like you did with your mom’s clothes when you were a teenager?

RH : What I really want is to explore and have fun with fashion. It has always been my passion, like at the very beginning, when I used mixtures of materials. Now, this is what we would call upcycling. So I guess that’s my common thread, from my mom to Tommy!

FNW: How would you define Romeo Hunte’s DNA?

RH : For women, it’s classic, but street and chic. For men, it’s classic, street and swag.

FNW: What would you like people to think when they see the clothes in the collection?

TH : I think they’re going to see that there are plenty of new, unreleased pieces and the quality is great. We are really delighted with these so bright colors. Selfridges is setting up a boutique in the boutique, and we think this collection has it all in London. The launch will be in a limited edition, and we think everything will be sold out in a weekend. Then there will be a break followed by a surprise.

FNW: Tommy, why is it so important for you to work with people of color?

TH: You have known me for years, and our brand has always bet on diversity and promote equality. Last year, with the Black Lives Matter movement, other brands realized they needed to be more inclusive and open. In addition, this project gives us a new platform within the framework of People’s Place. It’s a real collaboration, and we are proud of it.

The panoramic terrace of Cima Tofana

Reachable until 19 September starting from the center of Cortina thanks to Tofana – Freccia nel Cielo, Cima Tofana is the only Dolomite peak accessible by cable car. Do not miss the exhibition “Per Aspera ad Astra”
Cima Tofana is the only Dolomite peak accessible by cable car, the well-known Freccia nel Cielo which starts right from the center of Cortina d’Ampezzo. A majestic panoramic terrace from which to admire the Cortina basin and the Dolomite peaks stands on Cima Tofana (3,244 m) which can be reached directly from the town center thanks to the Tofana – Freccia nel Cielo lifts. It is certainly the point of arrival and departure of some of the most beautiful excursions and via ferratas in the Dolomites, and allows even the less experienced to reach the summit of Tofana di Mezzo, the third highest in the Dolomites, in just 10 minutes’ walk from the station of arrival of the cable car.
Being one of the symbolic places in the history of Ampezzo mountaineering, Cima Tofana hosts the photographic exhibition “Per Aspera ad Astra” set up inside the arrival station until 19 September: an exhibition dedicated to the birth of the Cortina Alpine Guides, that this year celebrates 150 years of a history that began with the appointment of Francesco Lacedelli, ?Checo da Meleres? to accompany the famous Austrian mountaineer Paul Grohmann as a guide to discover the Dolomites and the Tofana di Mezzo on 20 August 1863.

It is a privileged point of view that allows you to enjoy a 360 ° view of the Dolomites even comfortably “lying down”, relaxing in the sun, between its panoramic terrace and the Cima Tofana Bar: a meeting and refreshment place that thanks to a functional wi-fi network can also become an unusual and spectacular location for smart working at high altitude.

Via Eötvös Dimai © Alberto de Giuli

cortina d’Ampezzo celebrates mountaineering and the legendary mountain guides, group of Squirrels, actually born in 1863 with a series of events held throughout the summer.
The language of art was chosen to tell, through a light installation, the great enterprises that led Cortina d’Ampezzo and its Dolomites World Heritage Site to write the story of man’s love / reverence towards the discovery of Mountain.
The classic route Dimai on Punta FIames (m. 2240) turns 120 this year, and symbolically lights up after sunset, for the whole month of August, to shine like a comet on the Queen of the Dolomites.
A story made up of images and words, conducted by the protagonists of mountaineering in the Ampezzo valley, the Cortina Alpine Guides Group, and hosted by the Municipality of Cortina d’Ampezzo, through the intervention of the Mayor Gianpietro Ghedina:

Giampiero Ghedina

«It is precisely mountaineering that has made our wonderful Dolomites famous all over the world. Thanks also to the enterprises of the Alpine Guides, who have become a real institution of the locality. And which today accompany, with great competence and passion, the lovers of our majestic peaks to discover their beauties, even the most hidden ».

August 8, 2021 was the 120th anniversary of the first ascent, via ?Eötvös / Dimai? carried out by the baronesses Rolanda and Ilona Eötvös, led by the famous alpine guides of the time: Antonio Dimai, Agostino Verzi and Giovanni Siorpaes. The sisters Rolanda and Ilona Eötvös were two Hungarian nobles, daughters of Baron Roland, eminent scientist and passionate mountaineer. From their father they certainly inherited the passion for mountaineering and over the years they have completed, always accompanied by mountain guides, numerous first ascents in the Dolomites. The classic itinerary that climbs the south face of the Tofana is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful routes in the Dolomites in a majestic and evocative environment.

Although not difficult (from 3 to 4 grade with some passages of 4+) it has a development of more than 1000 meters with a vertical drop of about 800 meters. From the mountaineering point of view, the route should not be underestimated, it is in fact very long and not easy to identify in case of limited visibility. Good training and a sense of direction are two fundamental characteristics to access this itinerary.
Since 1800, the Ampezzo Alpine Guides have been the undisputed architects of mountaineering enterprises both on their home mountains and outside their own valley, in even very distant Alpine areas. Simple and valiant men, they were faithful companions of the first great pioneers of mountaineering; from Paul Grohman onwards, generations of mountain guides have written the history of mountaineering in Cortina, giving prestige and notoriety to the entire valley.

It can be said, with good reason, that mountaineering was the first great engine for the birth of tourism in Cortina d’Ampezzo.

To describe the beauty and the historical richness of the city of Isfahan, in the center of the country, the Iranians do not show much modesty. «Esfahan, nesf-e jahan! », they say in Persian. Which means : ?Isfahan, half the world! “ To discover this jewel of the Middle East, which became the capital of Persia at the end of the 16th centurye century under the reign of Shah Abbas, belonging to the Safavid dynasty, there is nothing better than taking a stroll from the great Naghsh-e Jahan square (“ the image of the world »), Now called Imam Khomeini.

Around its huge rectangular basin, four buildings: the entrance to the historic Isfahan bazaar, Ali Qapu’s palace and the two mosques of Imam and Sheikh Lotfollah, which symbolize Islam and especially Shiism, which has become the official religion under the Safavids. After the Iranian revolution, in 1979, the frescoes on the walls of Ali Qapu’s palace, deemed ?anti-Islamic?, were destroyed. On summer evenings, a little before nightfall and as the temperature drops, the inhabitants of Isfahan, these great picnic enthusiasts, storm the grass around the large pool. The more adventurous go around the square in horse-drawn carriages.

The royal road to the afterlife

After Naghsh-e Jahan Square, direction Chehel Sotoun Palace, « forty columns » in Persian. This name refers to the twenty columns of the building adding to their reflection in the large basin that borders it. Dating from the reign of the Safavid king Shah Abbas II (XVIIe century), this palace was the place where the coronation ceremonies of kings and the reception of foreign guests were organized.

On Naghsh-e Jahan Square.

Leaving Chehel Sotoun, you have to walk a few hundred meters on the busy Chahar Bagh Avenue (« four gardens ?) to discover another palace with a breathtaking garden, named Hacht-Behecht,? the eight paradises ?in Persian. Also dating from the Safavid dynasty, it is built according to an octagonal plan and consists of eight large rooms.

?In Chahar Bagh now reigns an unprecedented joy. Here, Iranians from all walks of life mix together, living together with tolerance. »Ali Khodayi, Iranian writer

His garden, like that of Chehel Sotoun, is « the perfect Iranian garden par excellence, explains Iranian Ayda Alehashemi, architect and landscape designer in Paris. The gardens represent the paradise that the Iranians are trying to build on Earth. The exemplary garden is surrounded by walls separating it from the outside world, from here below, but also from the devils. From a practical point of view, these walls protect it from the harsh climate of the Iranian desert plateau, sandstorms, winds coming from the desert and aggressive heat waves. Another feature of these gardens is that they all have a central axis, connecting the entrance to the palace. This movement consisting of starting from here below to reach the hereafter, of walking a path to become a master after having been a disciple, also constitutes our conception of the world. ”

A few hours have passed since the discovery of the body of the priest Olivier Maire, found murdered in his room, in Saint-Laurent-sur-Sčvre (Vendée), on August 9. And already, social networks are on fire: the alleged assassin, who surrendered to the gendarmes, is none other than the arsonist of Nantes cathedral in 2020, a Rwandan in an irregular situation placed under judicial control, and taken in by the missionary brothers from Montfort when he left the psychiatric hospital on July 29.

As soon as the information appeared, Gérald Darmanin, Minister of the Interior, and Marine Le Pen, president of the National Rally (RN), started the controversy on Twitter. Political reactions follow one another. The news channels run in a loop. A voice is missing, however. That of the deputy prosecutor of the Republic of La Roche-sur-Yon, in charge of the investigation opened for intentional homicide. However, the court switchboard is saturated with calls from journalists.

Alone at the helm in the heart of summer

?While the politicians are all going to comment, that the controversy mounts, the prosecution refuses to answer the phone and? will send a press release at the end of the day ?. When will justice understand the value of communicating? “, gets angry, on Twitter, Cécile Ollivier, head of the police-justice department of BFM-TV.

Faced with media pressure and the insistence of the Ministry of Justice, Deputy Prosecutor Yannick Le Goater, alone at the helm in the middle of the summer, finally held a press conference at the end of the afternoon. All organized in a hurry, in the tiny poorly lit premises of the Mortagne-sur-Sčvres gendarmerie.

?It’s always the same scenario. The prosecutor’s phone explodes under calls from journalists, the police can no longer reach him, and in the end, it harms the investigation. »A ministry adviser

It is to deal with this kind of emergency that the Ministry of Justice is preparing to provide magistrates with crisis communication advisers. A call for tenders was launched on July 26, to which agencies have one month to respond. In its order, Place Vendôme specifies that the consultants must be reachable within an hour and deploy to the courts of appeal and provincial prosecutors for seventy-two hours to “Strategic consulting services and the implementation of crisis communication”, including logistical support for a press conference.

Nirmal Purja, the first man in history to have climbed the K2 in the winter months, will be a cortina d’Ampezzo to talk about his extraordinary feat which, in January, together with a team of nine other Nepalese companions, took him to the top.
The event is scheduled in Cortina on 27 August at 6.15 pm in Piazza Angelo Dibona, e represents the first public release of Nirmal Purja after reaching the second highest peak in the world. During the talk, the great Nepalese climber, in addition to telling unpublished details of his feat, will retrace the salient moments of his career, which began in 2012 and which saw him climb all fourteen 8000m mountains in the record time of 189 days, in the ‘scope of the ?Project Possible 14 × 7?.

The choice to carry out this special event in Cortina is not accidental: the well-known locality of the Belluno Alps was the birthplace in 1925 in Lino Lacedelli, one of the greatest mountaineers ever, who together with Achille Compagnoni was the first man to conquer K2 in 1954.
The event on 27 August is sponsored by the Municipality of Cortina d’Ampezzo and bears the organizational signature of SCARPA, a leading Italian company in the production of mountain footwear and outdoor activities, which accompanied him to the roof of the world: the climber for reaching the top of K2 in fact used the Phantom 8000 HD, an extremely technical boot completely made in Italy and designed specifically for high altitude, one of the flagship products of the Asolo brand.

Great mountaineering expeditions are part of our history – underlines Sandro Parisotto, president of Scarpa – and K2, with its 8609 meters, represents one of the most legendary peaks. Passion, love for the mountains and teamwork are the values ??that our company has always pursued, sharing them with the most important climbers. Having contributed to the epic feat of Nirmal Purja and his team is a source of immense satisfaction for us and we are equally happy that this extraordinary athlete can now bear his testimony in Cortina ».

The promotional project presented in June concerning the cooperation between Switzerland Tourism and Michelle Hunziker. The popular presenter traveled to Switzerland as the new ambassador of Swiss tourism to Italy. She left full of enthusiasm to tell Italians about the care of the territory and the love for what is authentic that distinguishes her country of origin and also to dispel some prejudices. «Switzerland is small but incredibly varied, in terms of landscapes, habits, geographical situations. In a few kilometers the landscapes, the cantons and even the spoken language change. There are many proposals for every type of holiday – explains Michelle – This first trip was a real discovery for me! I had not yet had the opportunity to travel aboard the Glacier Express and the Gotthard Panorama Express, to visit Lucerne or to get to know the unexpected face of Ticino and St. Moritz ».

The choice of the stages followed the trend of Swisstainable, the Swiss Tourism manifesto dedicated to sustainable tourism, which underlines how green travel is not only a necessity to protect the environment but also a form of enrichment because it allows you to discover a territory with more awareness, fullness and intensity. The sustainability it is declined in various aspects in Swiss.

Switzerland is known not only for its spectacular mountains, wild gorges, forests but also for being the water reserve of Europe with its 1,500 lakes and 61,000 km of waterways. Water in its variants, lakes, rivers and glaciers, indelibly shapes the landscape and the tourist offer, as Michelle Hunziker has had the opportunity to verify. Another highlight is the public transport network so widespread that you can do without the car and so scenographic as to be a real attraction for visitors.

The stages of the first tour touched St. Moritz, an exciting ride on the Glacier Express, back Fürstenau, a few km from Chur, where in the Schloss Schauenstein, an 18th century manor house, the chef Andreas Caminada, three Michelin stars.
Then the timeless charm of Lucerne, climbing later on the Gotthard Panorama Express at a time of Canton Ticino via Gottardo, to explore Lugano and its lake, Bellinzona e Arona where Michelle Hunziker’s visit ended in anticipation of the next winter adventure ad Andermatt.

The promotional project presented in June concerning the cooperation between Switzerland Tourism and Michelle Hunziker. The popular presenter traveled to Switzerland as the new ambassador of Swiss tourism to Italy. She left full of enthusiasm to tell Italians about the care of the territory and the love for what is authentic that distinguishes her country of origin and also to dispel some prejudices. «Switzerland is small but incredibly varied, in terms of landscapes, habits, geographical situations. In a few kilometers the landscapes, the cantons and even the spoken language change.

[content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

In the first half of 2021, the Calida group saw its turnover increase by 30.2% compared to the same period in 2019 to reach 154 million Swiss francs (approximately 143 million euros). The group, which owns the eponymous brand, Aubade, Lafuma Furniture and the Millet Mountain Group outdoor brand of brands, has thus achieved a higher level of sales than before the coronavirus pandemic. The biggest contribution to this performance came from the Calida underwear brand.

The group will focus on its lingerie business – Aubade

We were able to capitalize on the momentum recorded in the second half of 2020 and put it to profit for an extremely satisfactory half-year result. Thanks to our strong brands which can count on a clientele loyal, we have achieved higher turnover levels group-wide than before the pandemic. Thanks to our etrade setting established and developed very early on, we were able to respond effectively and at any time on demande always increasing“, explained in a statement Timo Schmidt-Eisenhart, CEO of the Calida group.

At the brand level, Calida contributed the most to the group’s results with sales of 68 million Swiss francs (around 63 million euros), up 23.8%, followed by Lafuma Mobilier with 45.3 million euros. Swiss francs (+ 29.4%) and Aubade with 32.5 million Swiss francs (+ 35.6%), notably driven by growth of more than 60% in its e-commerce activity.

The company says it has been able to more than compensate for lost sales due to regional store closures by successfully expanding its online business. The group claims a sales growth of 46.3% in digital. This means that Calida now achieves 28.8% (26.2% the previous year) of its online sales, all brands combined.

“Thanks to our e-commerce business, which we established and developed at an early stage, we were able to cope effectively and at all times with the continuing increase in demand,” says Timo Schmidt-Eisenhart.

The group specifies that Calida is also the largest contributor of profits with more than 19 million Swiss francs over the period, followed by Lafuma Immobilier (15.9 million) and Aubade (9.7 million). The activities of the Millet Mountain Group brought in 3.9 million Swiss francs and sales of both Millet and Lafuma have, according to the group, recorded an increase over the half year compared to last year. But the pole is definitely no longer part of the group’s projects, which has decided to focus its activity on underwear and lingerie.

“The proceeds from the sale of the Lafuma and Millet outdoor brands can be used in the future both to invest in the organic and external growth of the main segment and to further develop online activities”, explains the group. Timo Schmidt-Eisenhart, who has managed Calida since April, is in charge of this disposal project.

For the second half of the year, the group, due to the uncertain evolution of the pandemic, remains cautious about forecasts. Calida will present its long-term goals in detail at an Investor Day in the last quarter of this year.
