FINNISH COMPETITION AUTHORITY PROPOSES A FINE ON THE IITTALA GROUP

The Finnish Competition Authority has proposed to the Market Court that a fine
of EUR 4 million should be imposed on Iittala Group Oy Ab due to violation of
the Finnish Competition Act. The Iittala Group, a Fiskars subsidiary, considers
as a starting point the proposal to be unfounded. No provision has been booked
for the proposed fine.

The Competition Authority argues that the Iittala Group violated the Finnish
Competition Act by applying resale price maintenance between 2005 and 2007. The
claimed violation occurred in practice before Fiskars acquired the Iittala Group
on 31 August 2007. The investigation by the Competition Authority started in
2006.
