  • 1 min read
LASSILA & TIKANOJA PLC   Stock exchange release   18 October 2010 4.40 pm       


The full-year operating profit excluding non-recurring items is estimated to be 
slightly lower than in the previous year. Previously the company estimated that 
the full-year financial performance will remain at the same level as in 2009.   

Full-year net sales are estimated to remain at the 2009 level as estimated      

The performance is burdened by the increase in the costs generated by the       
introduction of renewed production line in Kerava recycling plant and the weak  
demand for wood-based biofuels.                                                 

Lassila & Tikanoja's operating profit excluding non-recurring items for the     
third quarter was EUR 16.8 million (Q3/2009: EUR 16.6 million).                 

Interim report for the period 1 January - 30 September 2010 will be released on 
26 October at 8.00 am.
