AvestaPolarit to postpone publishing of Q3 interim report

AvestaPolarit to postpone publishing of Q3 interim report AvestaPolarit will publish its Q3 interim report one day later than earlier scheduled. Instead of publishing the report on Thursday, 24 October, the new publication date will be Friday, 25 October. This change is a direct consequence of the need to co-ordinate the release of AvestaPolarit's Q3 report with that of Outokumpu, which is due to be published on 25 October. Outokumpu currently owns 99.8% of the shares in AvestaPolarit.
