Kotkamills Group Oyj


STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE


9 June 2016, at 9 am (CET + 1)


Kotkamills Group announced on May 18, 2016 that the start-up of the new board machine is estimated to take place during July 2016.

As the project has now progressed to the very advanced stage, the Company estimates the total costs of the Board Machine project to be ca. 170 MEUR instead of the earlier estimation of 155 MEUR. The difference is mainly coming from civil and piping works and the slightly delayed start-up date.

The company is financially prepared to cover the cost difference.
