The estimated lifespan of some of the first system implementations within Fiskars five year investment program in Europe have been reduced due to a re-evaluation of the program roadmap. Accordingly, Fiskars will recognize a non-recurring EUR 7.0 million write-down against the intangible assets in its result for the fourth quarter of 2014. The write down has no effect on the Group’s cash flow or outlook for the financial year 2014.
