solicitation or invitation of any offer to buy, acquire or subscribe
for, any securities or an inducement to enter into investment

contained in the actual notices to the extraordinary general meeting
of Munksjö and Ahlstrom, as applicable, the merger prospectus and the

on an independent analysis of the information contained therein. You

commitment or investment decision whatsoever. The information
contained in this release has not been independently verified. No
representation, warranty or undertaking, expressed or implied, is
made as to, and no reliance should be placed on, the fairness,
accuracy, completeness or correctness of the information or the

their respective affiliates, advisors or representatives or any other
person, shall have any liability whatsoever (in negligence or
otherwise) for any loss however arising from any use of this release

Each person must rely on their own examination and analysis of
Munksjö, Ahlstrom, their respective subsidiaries, their respective
securities and the Merger, including the merits and risks involved.

This release includes "forward-looking statements." These statements
may not be based on historical facts, but are statements about future
expectations. When used in this release, the words "aims,"
"anticipates," "assumes," "believes," "could," "estimates,"
"expects," "intends," "may," "plans," "should," "will," "would" and
similar expressions as they relate to Munksjö, Ahlstrom, the Merger
or the combination of the business operations of Munksjö and Ahlstrom
identify certain of these forward-looking statements. Other
forward-looking statements can be identified in the context in which
the statements are made. Forward-looking statements are set forth in
a number of places in this release, including wherever this release
include information on the future results, plans and expectations
with regard to the combined company's business, including its
strategic plans and plans on growth and profitability, and the
general economic conditions. These forward-looking statements are
based on present plans, estimates, projections and expectations and
are not guarantees of future performance. They are based on certain
expectations, which, even though they seem to be reasonable at
present, may turn out to be incorrect. Such forward-looking
statements are based on assumptions and are subject to various risks
and uncertainties. Shareholders should not rely on these
forward-looking statements. Numerous factors may cause the actual
results of operations or financial condition of the combined company
to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the
forward-looking statements. Neither Munksjö nor Ahlstrom, nor any of
their respective affiliates, advisors or representatives or any other
person undertakes any obligation to review or confirm or to release
publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect
events that occur or circumstances that arise after the date of this
release.

This release includes estimates relating to the cost synergy benefits
expected to arise from the Merger and the combination of the business
operations of Munksjö and Ahlstrom as well as the related integration
costs, which have been prepared by Munksjö and Ahlstrom and are based
on a number of assumptions and judgments. Such estimates present the
expected future impact of the Merger and the combination of the
business operations of Munksjö and Ahlstrom on the combined company's
business, financial condition and results of operations. The
assumptions relating to the estimated cost synergy benefits and
related integration costs are inherently uncertain and are subject to
a wide variety of significant business, economic, and competitive
risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual cost synergy
benefits from the Merger and the combination of the business
operations of Munksjö and Ahlstrom, if any, and related integration
costs to differ materially from the estimates in this release.
Further, there can be no certainty that the Merger will be completed
in the manner and timeframe described in this release, or at all.

Notice to Shareholders in the United States

The new shares in Munksjö have not been and will not be registered
under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities
Act") or under any of the applicable securities laws of any state or
other jurisdiction of the United States. The new shares in Munksjö
may not be offered or sold, directly or indirectly, in or into the
United States (as defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act),
unless registered under the Securities Act or pursuant to an
exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act
and in compliance with any applicable state securities laws of the
United States. The new shares in Munksjö will be offered in the
United States in reliance upon the exemption from the registration
requirements of the Securities Act provided by Rule 802 thereunder.

Munksjö and Ahlstrom are Finnish companies. Information distributed in
connection with the Merger and the related shareholder votes is
subject to disclosure requirements of Finland, which are different
from those of the United States. The financial information included
in this release has been prepared in accordance with accounting
standards in Finland, which may not be comparable to the financial
statements or financial information of United States companies.

It may be difficult for Ahlstrom's shareholders to enforce their
rights and any claim they may have arising under the U.S. federal
securities laws in respect of the Merger, since Munksjö and Ahlstrom
are located in non-U.S. jurisdictions, and all of their officers and
directors are residents of non-U.S. jurisdictions. Ahlstrom's
shareholders may not be able to sue Munksjö or Ahlstrom or their
officers or directors in a court in Finland for violations of the
U.S. securities laws. It may be difficult to compel Munksjö and
Ahlstrom and their affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court's
judgment.
