Owing to the favourable development of earnings in the first half of the year, the company specifies its earnings estimate of consolidated profit before taxes for 2008. Profit before taxes is estimated to improve clearly in 2008. According to the company's previous estimate, the profit before taxes was estimated to improve in 2008.
 
The Forest Industry business group's favourable earnings development has continued after the first quarter also in April and May and orders received during the spring create a good work load for the rest of the year. For this reason, the Forest Industry business group's operating profit is expected to improve clearly in 2008.  According to the previous estimate, the operating profit was estimated to improve in 2008. The Forest Industry business group's favourable earnings development is due to effective capacity utilisation, successful completion of a number of major projects and the favourable demand situation in Latin America.
 
The earnings estimates of the Energy and Infrastructure & Environment business groups remain unchanged.
