BOARD'S RESPONSE TO THE REQUEST TO CONSIDER EQUAL VOTING RIGHTS FOR SHARE SERIES

The Board of Directors of Fiskars Corporation has considered the request made by
a group of shareholders, representing more than 5 % but less than 10 % of votes 
of Fiskars shares, to investigate the possibility of introducing equal voting   
rights for the company's listed share series.                                   

Based on the above request the Board decided to investigate the matter.         

Fiskars has currently two share series, series A and series K. Both shares are  
traded on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd. An A-share has one vote as a K-share has 
twenty votes. The total number of shares is 77 510 200 which is divided into 54 
944 492 A-shares and 22 565 708 K-shares.
