Suominen continues efficiency-enhancement measures

Feb '08
For the last quarter of 2007, Suominen Corporation is writing off a total of EUR 8 million of the book values of its goodwill.

These write-offs relate to the Wet Wipes' and Nonwovens' business operations and have no effect on cash flow. The uncertainty relating to the amount and timing of future cash flows from these cash-generating units is estimated to have increased, which decreases the units' values in use.

Suominen continues its efficiency-enhancement programmes to generate cost savings, to continuously improve its operations and to increase sales based on its own product offering. In 2007, cost savings and efficiency-enhancement measures generated some EUR 4 million. In 2008, the aim is to achieve at least an equal result in efficiency-enhancement.

After the goodwill write-off, Suominen's operating profit and result after taxes for 2007 are negative. The comparable underlying operating profit improves, but the underlying result after taxes is negative. Suominen's goodwill after the write-off amounts to EUR 26 million.

Suominen Corporation is a company serving the consumer goods industry and retail trade chains. The main business areas are Wipes and Nonwovens, and Flexible Packaging.

Suominen Nonwovens develops and manufactures nonwoven roll goods for producers of wiping, hygiene and health care products.
