Fiskars to sell the Brunton business to Fenix Outdoor

Fiskars is to focus on its Gerber brand in its US-based Outdoor operations and  
sell the Brunton business, specialized in camping equipment, to Fenix Outdoor AB
(publ) of Sweden. The transaction will not have a material impact on Fiskars'
net sales or operating profit for 2009.                                         

In line with its strategy, Fiskars wants to focus on clearly defined business   
areas and premium brands in these areas, and Brunton's portfolio of backpacking 
and camping products does not represent a core business for the company.        

Brunton is based in Riverton, Wyoming and had sales of under EUR 10 million in  
2008. It currently employs some 40 people.                                      

Following the divestment, Fiskars' Outdoor business area will comprise the      
Gerber, Silva, and Buster brands and concentrate on multi-tools, knives,        
compasses, mobile lighting, pedometers, and aluminum boats. Outdoor recorded net
sales of EUR 145 million in 2008, when it employed approximately 700 people     
(including Brunton sales and personnel).
