The statement on the Official Roma Website states:

“In consideration of the serious defects found in the technical material and the line of clothing produced by BASIC ITALIA S.p.A. for the 2012/13 season, the A.S. Roma S.p.A. board of directors has decided to cancel the contract with the technical sponsor with immediate effect due to BASIC ITALIA’s non-performance of contractual obligations. The board of directors reserve the right to pursue A.S. Roma’s best interests through the appropriate channels. The A.S. Roma team will continue to wear the technical material with the Kappa brand until the end of the current season“

    Pardon my french but… Kappa should be called Krappa, their kits are fucking shite… As a fulham fan we had to put up with these crap kits for 3 seasons… was a nightmare, stupid sizing, material, feel etc… shirts only fitted ok if you were an athlete, not the typical football fan… surprised the company is still in business…
