SEK 1,300m with full effect from 2015.
The total cost of the program is SEK 370m, of which SEK 250m is cash flow
impacting and SEK 120m comprises impairment losses. Of the total costs, SEK 175m
will be charged to profit for the fourth quarter and will be recognized as items
affecting comparability. The remaining SEK 195m will be charged to profit for
the first six months of 2013.
Actions include the previously announced closures of the sawmills in Vilhelmina
and Holmsund, and cutbacks at Ortviken paper mill, SCA Transforest’s terminals
in Sundsvall and Umeå, and at SCA’s R&D Center. About 200 positions are
affected, the majority of which have already been announced.
The program includes a structured plan to reduce fixed and variable costs,
income improvements by way of increased production and streamlining activities,
and a changed product and market mix. This will be achieved through improved raw
material yield at the sawmills, higher productivity in harvesting activities, an
increased share of value-added publication papers and a larger share of
container transportation.
NB:This information is such that SCA must disclose in accordance with the
Securities Markets Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act. The
information was submitted for publication on December 19, 2012, at 08.00 CET.
