This increase exceeds the expectations of analysts who predicted a 5,1% rise and is explained by the resumption of factories in May after the government reduced the confinement caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The drop was justified by the closure of most stores due to the coronavirus pandemic. The sportswear company expects profits to recover in the third quarter.
This figure represents an increase of 50% in relation to the same period of the previous year. However, the effects of the pandemic were felt in the last quarter with falls of 88%, which meant a loss of 87,5 million euros.
The entity also announced that it will not make any changes to the interest rate, which will remain at 0,1%, while maintaining its 822 billion euro bond purchase program unchanged.
The highlight of the day goes to the Bank of England's monetary policy meeting, which analysts say should result in the maintenance of stimulus measures and the key interest rate at 0,1%.
At the close of the session, the S&P 500 rises 0,64%, to 3,327.77 points, the technological Nasdaq values 0,52 to 10,998.40 points, and the industrial Dow Jones grows 1,45%, to 27,217.99 points.
