FISKARS TO STRENGTHEN ITS BUSINESS AREA MANAGEMENT

FISKARS TO STRENGTHEN ITS BUSINESS AREA MANAGEMENT

Fiskars Corporation is continuing the reorganization of the Group's management
structure to further improve operational efficiency and focus on branded
consumer goods in its three core businesses: Garden, Homeware, and Outdoor
Recreation.

The role of business area management will be strengthened, and regional
administration functions will be eliminated. The aim is to make Fiskars more
responsive to consumer needs within its business areas. Geographical areas will
remain the primary segments, as consumer preferences differ between EMEA and the
Americas.

Garden business area management in EMEA will be relocated from Belgium to
Finland, closer to the home market and the product development centre, which is
also located in Finland. The strong focus on Central and Western Europe will
continue.

The changes in operations in EMEA and the Americas will affect approximately 50
people. These one-time restructuring costs will be booked against the 2008
result, and these costs are expected to be saved through reduced operating costs
over the next 12 months.

APPOINTMENT OF NEW PRESIDENT, GARDEN, EMEA

Mr. Thomas Enckell has been appointed President, Garden, EMEA. Thomas Enckell is
currently responsible for the wholesale business in the Iittala Group, which
forms Fiskars' Homeware business area. He will report to Fiskars' President &
CEO, Kari Kauniskangas. Mr. Francis Kint, President, Garden, and Ms. Elly
Piccart, CFO, EMEA have decided to leave the company after a transition period.
