Stora Enso's Non-Recurring Items In Fourth Quarter 2012

HELSINKI, Finland, Jan. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STORA ENSO OYJ STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 18 January 2013 at 9.00 EET Stora Enso will record non-recurring items (NRI) with a positive net impact of approximately EUR 110 million on operating profit, a positive impact of approximately EUR 11 million on financial items and a positive impact of approximately EUR 56 million on income tax in its fourth quarter 2012 results. The NRI will increase earnings per share by EUR 0.22. The NRI are:

  • a NRI with approximately EUR 65 million positive net impact on operating profit as a result of fixed asset impairment testing. The net impact comprises an impairment charge related to Renewable Packaging and reversal of an impairment charge related to Printing and Reading.
  • a NRI with approximately EUR 43 million negative impact on operating profit due to plans to restructure operations in all Business Areas, as announced on 23 October 2012. The NRI comprises a restructuring provision and a fixed asset and working capital write-down. The restructuring measures are planned to reduce annual costs by approximately EUR 36 million.
  • these above-mentioned two NRI will have a negative tax impact of approximately EUR 7 million.
  • a NRI with approximately EUR 18 million positive impact on operating profit due to pension adjustment in Finland. This NRI will be reported in the segment Other.
  • a NRI with approximately EUR 11 million positive impact on net financial items due to the transfer of the lease holding of paper machine (PM) 35 at NewPage Corporation's Stevens Point Mill. Stora Enso has been the guarantor of the PM 35 lease.
  • a NRI with approximately EUR 132 million positive impact due to a tax rate change in Sweden. In November 2012 the Swedish Parliament enacted a tax rate change from 26.3% to 22.0%. As a result, the Group income tax includes a benefit of approximately EUR 63 million due to the application of the new rate to Swedish deferred tax assets and liabilities. The Group's approximately EUR 69 million share of the effect of the new tax rate on the Group's equity accounted investment Bergvik Skog AB will be recognised in operating profit in the segment Other.
