Change in Ahlstrom-Munksjö Oyj's reporting practice


Ahlstrom-Munksjö has decided to change its financial reporting practice in respect of quarterly (Q1 and Q3) reports. Taking into account the pending redemption proceedings concerning the Company's shares and the Company's decision to apply for delisting of its shares, the Company will no longer publish interim reports prepared in accordance with IAS34 for first three (Q1) and first nine months (Q3) of the financial year. During the time the Company remains listed on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd and/or Nasdaq Stockholm Ltd it intends to publish financial information for said periods in the form of a shorter business review. As a consequence of the change in the reporting practice the Company will not publish an interim report for January-March 2021 on April 27, 2021 as previously announced.

The Company's parent company Spa Holdings 3 Oy is required to report consolidated financial information for the January-March 2021 period to its debt investors by the end of June 2021. The Company intends to publish a business review for January-March 2021 simultaneously with such consolidated reporting by its parent company, provided that the Company's shares are still listed at the time. The exact timing of the possible publication of the business review will be announced later.

As previously announced, the Company's Board of Directors has resolved to submit applications to Nasdaq Helsinki and to Nasdaq Stockholm for the termination of public trading and for the delisting of the Company's shares to become effective (i) in respect of the shares admitted to trading on the main market of Nasdaq Stockholm on or about  May 31, 2021, and (ii) in respect of the shares admitted to trading on the official list of Nasdaq Helsinki as soon as possible upon Spa Holdings 3 having gained title to all the shares in the Company in the pending redemption proceedings.
