FISKARS FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK CHANGED

FISKARS FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK CHANGED

The weakening of the consumer markets seen during the first months of the year
as well as a decrease in demand in both Europe and the US has continued during
the second quarter. Weakened consumer confidence is increasingly expressed in
cautious purchasing both among consumers and in the trade.

The full year operating profit for Fiskars Corporation, excluding income from
associate and the change in the value of standing timber, is expected to be
somewhat lower than the previous year's result.
(The previous Outlook published on May 8, 2008 was: “Full year operating profit,
excluding income from associate and change in the value of standing timber, is
expected to remain at a level of the previous year.”)
