Rottneros: Rottneros initiates investment program to increase capacity in both its mills, Vallvik Mill and Rottneros Mill.

The Rottneros Board has decided to make the first investments of 180 MSEK to
increase production capacity at both the Group mills, Vallvik Mill and
Rottneros Mill, to ensure continuous progress and growth.

This means that the new plan prepared by management, Agenda 500, starts
immediately. Agenda 500 is a long-term industrial plan to increase the
capacity of the Group through successive investments. Investments are made in
renewed production equipment and organization to increase capacity and
eliminate bottlenecks in the two mills.

The long-term objective is to expand Rottneros’ total capacity to reach a
business volume of at least 460,000 tons of pulp annually, compared to the
345,000 tonnes produced last year. The rate of the investments will be
determined by Rottneros’ ability to allocate the increased volumes in the
market.

The total framework amounts to around SEK 800 million for the whole Agenda 500
divided into SEK 400 million medium-term and SEK 400 million in the longer
term.

“We are very pleased with the positive development within Rottneros and the
implementation of Fokus 15. Agenda 500 builds on our successful focus on
high-quality pulp and we look to the future with great confidence”, says
Chairman Rune Ingvarsson.

Rottneros’ CEO Per Lundeen, who together with the management teams at the two
mills has developed Agenda 500, is convinced that the operations will gain
significantly from continued investment and development of the niche
strategy.

"The Vallvik Mill and Rottneros Mill produce high quality and specialized pulp
and they have been very successful with their market positioning towards more
and more specialty products. The success of our specialty products has
created resources and given us the courage to take this step and thus secure
the future of the Rottneros Group and the two mills." says Per Lundeen.
