Munksjö Oyj: Nomination Board appointed

Munksjö's Nomination Board has been appointed. The Nomination Board comprises
representatives of the three largest shareholders of the company and, in
addition, two expert members: the Chairman of the Board of Directors and a
person nominated by the Board of Directors.

The following three persons have been appointed as representatives in the
Nomination Board:
- Thomas Ahlström (Ahlström Capital Oy and others),
- Alexander Ehrnrooth (Viknum AB) and
- Mikko Mursula (Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company).

The Chairman of the Board of Directors Peter Seligson will, according to the
charter of the Nomination Board, act as an expert member of the Nomination
Board in addition to which the Board of Directors has elected Fredrik Cappelen
as the second expert member of the Nomination Board. The Nomination Board has
among its members elected Thomas Ahlström as Chairman.

The right to nominate the shareholder representatives lies with those three
shareholders whose share of all the voting rights in the company is on 31 May
preceding the next Annual General Meeting the largest on the basis of the
shareholders' register of Munksjö held by Euroclear Finland Euroclear Finland
Ltd and the register of shareholders held by Euroclear Sweden AB. The
Nomination Board has been appointed by one group of shareholders, as described
below, Viknum AB and Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company.

Holdings by a group of shareholders, who have agreed to nominate a joint
representative to the Nomination Board, are summed up when calculating the
share of all the voting rights, provided that the shareholders in question
present a joint written request to that effect together with a copy of such an
agreement to the Chairman of the Board no later than on 30 May preceding the
Annual General Meeting. Munksjö has been informed that such an agreement has
been made by AC Invest Five B.V. (a fully owned subsidiary of Ahlström Capital
Oy), Kai Nahi, Kasper Kylmälä, Michael Sumelius and Carl Ahlström.

The Nomination Board prepares proposals to the Annual General Meeting for the
election and remuneration of the members of the Board of Directors and the
remuneration of the members of the Board committees and the Nomination Board.
