  • Profit after tax for January-September 2011 was SEK 1 015 million (January-September 2010: SEK 528 million).
  • Earnings per share reached SEK 12.1 (6.3). Return on equity totalled 8.1 per cent (4.3).
  • Operating profit amounted to SEK 1 570 million (971). The improvement is explained by higher prices for newsprint and paperboard, while higher costs for wood and recovered paper had an adverse impact on the result.
  • Demand for both newsprint and paperboard in Europe weakened during the third quarter, and the market for sawn timber remained weak.
