According to the intercorporate vice president at Prada, Armando Branchini, things are looking up for the company, and this loan will help them boast sales now that they are peaking:

"Prada is currently undergoing a very positive sales growth, and I believe that by 2013 the return of the company's retail investment will outdo this loan, especially with today's cost of money".

The company are hoping to expand by opening a possible 30 new stores in the future, an incentive which has already begun in Europe with the launch of new stores in Frankfurt, Prague, Berlin and Lisbon. They hope to also branch out into the Asia-Pacific region in hopes of boasting their sales further.
