2007-12-19: SCA raises the value of its forest assets

SCA is raising the value of its forest assets by SEK 5,200 million to SEK 23,300 million based on sustained higher timber prices. SCA is also carrying out a number of measures to enhance competitiveness. The acquisition of Procter & Gamble’s European tissue operations this autumn generates significant synergies within sales and marketing, enabling an improved production structure amounting to a value of approximately SEK 700 million annually. In addition, a review has been carried out of tissue operations that are not directly affected by the acquisition from P&G and within other business areas. The review has led to the Group implementing efficiency enhancements and impairment of some non-current assets in conjunction with restructuring. The cost of all these measures will amount to SEK 4,900 million which will be booked in the fourth quarter. Of this amount, impairment charges account for SEK 3,700 million and net cash expenditure after some disposals for SEK 700 million. The improvement in operating profit will have full effect after three years when it will amount to approximately SEK 1,400 million per year, including synergies from the P&G acquisition.
