The Swedish consumer healthcare products group Wilh. Sonesson AB issued on Tuesday (25 April) its interim report for the first quarter, posting an operating result of SEK11.4m, as compared to SEK24.1m in the first quarter of 2005.

The net turnover amounted to SEK300.7m, as compared to SEK326.1m in the first quarter last year.

The decline in sales was due to the sale of the Naturapoteket chain. Excluding the effects of the sale the turnover improved by 7%.
