Financial statement as of 2008 The revenue of Active Group in 2008 was 1 8 00 000 PLN ( 4 00 000 EUR)‏ The profit of the company in 2008 was 150.000 PLN (3 3 .000 EUR)‏ These numbers are maybe not overwhelming, but we need to remember that this is our second year of operation, and we are still investing large amounts of revenues in stocks of new brands, marketing activities and sales expansion through new distribution channels. We expect that despite the economic crisis, Active Group will increase revenue and profit within next few years due to our long term investments.
  5. 5. Created by Active Group Company Ltd. For internal use only. Active Group – the first location As a location of the first store of Active Group, we chose Galeria Mokotów. Galeria Mokotów - located in one of Warsaw’s busiest business districts - is the most prestigious commercial center in Poland. It can be compared to La Rinascente in Milan or Galeria Lafayette in Paris. The commercial area of Galeria totals 60 000 m2. Among more than 250 stores, there are those of the most famous and desirable brands: Versace, Calvin Klein, Cacharel, Escada, Max Mara, Trussardi. The number of visitors in Galeria Mokotów exceeds 1 million customers every month.

The store was named „Salon Rosenthal”, due to Rosenthal being its main retail brand. In a short period of time, other prestigious brands such as Alessi, Goebel, Bernardaud, Robbe&Berking, Furstenberg, Kaiser, have been been added to the offer of Salon Rosenthal. The commercial area of the store is 110 m2.
  7. 7. Created by Active Group Company Ltd. For internal use only. Active Group – cooperation with Alessi In 2007 The Management Board decided to extend the range of Alessi products and devote 1/3 rd of the store’s commercial area to the brand. The name of the store was then changed to Salon Rosental/Alessi. This strategic movement had a huge influence on the increase of sales in the store. Not long afterwards, Active Group became the leader in sales of Alessi products in Poland in 2008. The financial results were appreciated by the Alessi Company and in 2008 the Company awarded the title of Shop in Shop to our store (the first in Poland).

At the end of 2008, Active Group launched the sales of another prestigious brand in Salon Rosenthal/Alessi – Wedgwood (the famous English porcelain). Active Group also opened a new distribution channel for the sale of business gifts – B2B. Now Active Group cooperates with large companies and media houses. This channel is very promising.
