Stockholm, Sweden, 2013-05-17 11:45 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Stock Exchange Release


Munksjö Oyj's shareholders have today resolved to approve the partial demerger
concerning Ahlstrom Group's Label and Processing business in Brazil in
accordance with the demerger plan.

The Board of Directors of Munksjö Oyj and Ahlstrom Corporation have on 13 May,
2013 signed a new demerger plan, according to which all the assets and
liabilities that belong to Ahlstrom Group's Label and Processing business in
Brazil (Coated Specialties) will be transferred to Munksjö Oyj through a
partial demerger. The previous demerger plan concerning Coated Specialties has
been cancelled due to the fact that the conditions for implementing the
demerger will not be fulfilled prior to the expiration of the decision made by
Ahlstrom's Extraordinary General Meeting on 27 November, 2012.

Upon execution of the demerger concerning Coated Specialties, the shareholders
of Ahlstrom Corporation will receive as demerger consideration 0.265 new shares
in Munksjö Oyj for each share owned in Ahlstrom Corporation. The complete
demerger plan is attached to this Stock Exchange Release and it contains
information, among other things, on the demerger consideration to Ahlstrom
Corporation's shareholders, the planned time for execution of the demerger, the
division of the demerging company's assets and liabilities to the recipient
company and the conditions for the execution of the demerger. The demerger
concerning Coated Specialties is expected to take place by the end of 2013.

Additional information on the demerger will be available in the prospectus to
be published by Munksjö Oyj approximately one week before the Extraordinary
General Meeting of Ahlstrom Corporation on 4 July, 2013, convened to resolve on
the demerger.
