Pandora today releases a trading update for Q1 2021. The trading update is, as the previous trading updates this year, released as a press release, and not a company announcement, per instructions from NASDAQ Copenhagen.

Pandora has previously communicated that the company would, when relevant, release extraordinary trading updates due to the elevated uncertainty related to COVID-19. On average, around 30% of physical stores were temporarily closed due to COVID-19 throughout the first quarter, with around 35% of stores closed by the end of March.

In Q1 2021, revenue was DKK 4,500 million, corresponding to 13% revenue growth in local currency vs Q1 2020.
