Technical mistake in distribution of the Interim Report

Archive 14.8.1997 0:00 EEST

The premature disclosure of UPM-Kymmene´s results in today´s Helsingin Sanomat was a consequence of a technical mistake in the distribution chain. According to an investigation carried out by UPM-Kymmene a few Interim Reports were delivered by human mistake to the city center area of Helsinki on Wednesday evening after the trading in the Helsinki Stock Exchange had been closed. The deliveries were meant to be distributed this morning after the UPM-Kymmene Interim Report was released at 8.00 a.m. Finnish time.
