ASPOCOMP GROUP PLC STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE September 28, 2006 at 2:15 PM
ASPOCOMP’S RECOVERY SLOWER THAN ANTICIPATED: WILL NOT REACH BREAK-EVEN IN 2006
The upturn of the Aspocomp Group’s profitability is taking place slower than
anticipated and contrary to earlier estimates, the profitability of the Group is
not expected to reach break-even by the end of the year. The result for the third
quarter of 2006 is anticipated to improve compared to the previous quarter and
the result for the last quarter to improve on the third quarter, but not to reach
break-even by the year end.
The full-year result is anticipated to be clearly unprofitable mainly due to the
Salo plant’s performance.
For further information, please contact Maija-Liisa Friman, CEO,
tel. +358 9 7597 0711.
