M-real price increase for white-top kraftliner

Press release 9.2.2007

Due to the increases in the production input costs, M-real has announced price
increase plans for white-top kraftliner in Europe. 

M-real is planning to raise its coated and uncoated Kemiart white-top
kraftliner prices by EUR 40/tonne. This increase concerns all European markets
effective 1st March. The company considers this move necessary to at least
partly cover the recent increases in variable production costs.
