RAISIO GROUP TO ADOPT INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL REPORTING STANDARDS

Raisio Group plc Stock Exchange Release 22 April 2005 at 10.00 Finnish time
                           
RAISIO GROUP TO ADOPT INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL REPORTING STANDARDS
(IFRS)

Raisio adopted the International Financial Reporting Standards in
its consolidated financial accounting from the beginning of 2005.
The first interim report in conformance with the IFRS principles
will be published on 3 May 2005.

This release includes the income statements and the opening and
closing balance sheets for 2004 prepared according to IFRS
principles, quarterly figures, key notes to the financial
statements and key figures, as well as reconciliation on the
transition from Finnish accounting standards to IFRS-compliant
accounting. The cash flow statements do not differ significantly
in the Finnish and IFRS –based accounting. Thus, the cash flow
statements are not included in this release.

The major changes at Raisio, resulting from the adoption of the
IFRS, relate to pension arrangements, leasing contracts,
conversion of goodwill to currency and the cancellation of
goodwill amortisations.

Raisio Group's segment reporting corresponds to the earlier
reporting where business operations consist of two segments,
Raisio Nutrition and Raisio Life Sciences, and the support sector
other operations. The divestment of Raisio Chemicals and the
discontinuation of the grain starch business result in changes to
the presentation of the 2004 results and to the balance sheet of
31 March 2004. The balance sheet items of Raisio Chemicals were
entered as non-current assets available for sale and its
liabilities as liabilities related to these assets.

IFRS requires capitalisation of product development costs when
certain criteria are met. Raisio will continue its former practise
in the future and will not capitalise its product development
costs because any future returns to be obtained will not be
guaranteed until the products have been launched. Therefore IFRS-
based accounting will not bring any difference in the opening
balance sheet equity in this respect. Research and development
expenditure is reported on the basis of the income statement.

Raisio will apply the IFRS principles for financial instruments
from 1 January 2005.

Below is a description of the essential differences between the
Finnish and the International Financial Reporting Standards
affecting the financial statements of Raisio.

1. Pensions

In the Raisio financial statements, prepared according to the
Finnish Accounting Standards, pension costs have been included in
the consolidated financial statements in accordance with the
regulations of each location country. IFRS requires pension
arrangements to be divided into defined contribution and defined
benefit plans. In the defined benefit plans, assets and
liabilities are calculated by using actuarial calculation methods,
and the difference is entered in the opening balance sheet as
assets or liabilities. The disability portion of the Finnish
Employees' Pension Act (TEL) has been treated in the 2004 IFRS
financial statements as a defined benefit plan. It has been
calculated that this results in a liability of approximately EUR
4.3 million (the share of Raisio Chemicals being EUR 0.5 million)
in the opening balance sheet, with a negative impact of EUR 3.1
million on the shareholders' equity after deferred taxes. Due to
the regulatory changes made to the Employees' Pension Act, this
liability was reduced to EUR 0.7 million during the financial
year.

Raisio's foreign subsidiaries have not been stated to result in
pension liabilities in the opening balance sheet or reference data
due to defined benefit plans.

2. Financial leases

Raisio has some leasing contracts related to research and
production equipment, as well as data processing hardware and
software, which according to IFRS should be included in the
consolidated balance sheet, whilst according to the Finnish
Accounting Standards these are interpreted as agreements to be
excluded from the balance sheet. The most important of these was
the multinip calender acquired for the Raisio Chemicals Coating
Technology Center. The positive impact of these agreements on the
opening IFRS balance sheet equity is EUR 0.2 million. The opening
balance sheet included leasing assets to the value of EUR 8.0
million (the share of Raisio Chemicals being EUR 4.0 million) and
leasing debt to the value of EUR 7.6 million (the share of Raisio
Chemicals being EUR 3.9 million). Due to the divestment of Raisio
Chemicals, the value of financial leasing assets decreased to EUR
2.9 million and the leasing debt to EUR 2.8 million during the
financial year.

3. Goodwill write-downs

Raisio has made the impairments tests of goodwill and some assets
required by the IFRS in the opening balance sheet. On the basis of
these, the company has not recognised any impairment losses.
During the second quarter of 2004, in connection with the strategy
reassessment process, the company updated the business plans for
the various business areas and at the same time evaluated some
balance sheet items in light of the new strategy and the
prevailing return expectations. On 30 June 2004, write-downs
totalling EUR 26.1 million were made to goodwill in the
consolidated income statement prepared in accordance with the
Finnish Accounting Standards, the value of write-downs being EUR
26.4 million in accordance with the IFRS principles. In the
future, impairment tests will be performed regularly during the
third quarter.

4. Goodwill and amortisation

According to the principles of IFRS no amortisations are made to
the goodwill, which is the case in the financial statements
prepared according to the Finnish Accounting Standards, but
instead that the goodwill be tested annually. The cancellation of
amortisations improves the IFRS operating profit. The impact of
the cancellation of amortisations was EUR 1.3 million during the
first quarter (the share of Raisio Chemicals being EUR 0.5
million), EUR 0.8 million during the second quarter (the share of
Raisio Chemicals being EUR 0.4 million), EUR 0.3 million during
the third quarter and EUR 0.2 million during the fourth quarter,
i.e. a total of EUR 2.7 million in 2004.

Goodwill resulting from the acquisition of foreign subsidiaries
and associated companies will be treated in the IFRS financial
statements as assets of the foreign unit in question and stated in
the operating currency of the foreign unit in question, and will
always be converted according to the exchange rate on the date of
the financial statements. In the consolidated financial
statements, prepared according to the Finnish Accounting
Standards, Raisio's goodwill was entered in euros in connection
with the acquisition and was not included in the assets of the
foreign unit in question. Following the adoption of the IFRS
standards, the impact of this change on Raisio Group's
shareholders' equity was EUR –1.8 million.

5. Non-current assets available for sale

At the beginning of the first quarter of 2004, Raisio decided to
investigate the possibility of divesting Raisio Chemicals and
commenced negotiations with several chemical industry companies.
Following this decision, the Raisio Chemicals business operations
are presented in the 2004 IFRS financial statements as
discontinued operations from the first quarter of the financial
year.

In the income statement, the Raisio Chemicals’ result is presented
as discontinued operations. In the balance sheet, the balance
sheet items related to the operation in question are presented as
assets and liabilities available for sale. According to IFRS the
depreciations from assets available for sale are discontinued from
the moment that the classification as operations available for
sale has been made. In the financial statements, prepared
according to the Finnish Accounting Standards, depreciations stood
at EUR 4.5 million during the first quarter and EUR 3.8 million
during the second quarter, i.e. a total of EUR 8.2 million, which
are not entered in the IFRS financial statements. The increasing
effect on the deferred taxes of the income statement during the
first quarter is EUR 1.3 million and during the second quarter EUR
2.4 million.

The divestment of Raisio Chemicals was finalised on 2 June 2004.
The sales profit entered in the IFRS income statement is different
from that of the Finnish Accounting Standards, among other things
due to conversion differences and depreciations not carried out as
mentioned above. In the Finnish Accounting Standards, Raisio has
followed conversion differences of shareholders' equity for each
company and has adjusted the sales profit with the accrued
conversion differences. In the IFRS financial statements, the
conversion differences in the opening balance were considered to
be zero, and the sales profit for Raisio Chemicals is affected
only by the conversion differences of shareholders' equity accrued
during 2004 from the companies divested. The sales profit
according to the IFRS financial statements was EUR 227.2 million,
which is included in the result for discontinued operations
(according to the Finnish Accounting Standards, the sales profit
was EUR 223.1 million which was entered under other operating
income).

The grain starch business was discontinued on 31 August 2004. Its
results are also presented in the result for discontinued
operations in the 2004 IFRS financial statements.

6. Deferred tax liability and assets

Major deferred taxes caused by differences between company
bookkeeping and taxation have already been entered in the balance
sheet prepared according to the Finnish Accounting Standards.
Therefore, there are no major differences caused by deferred taxes
in the opening balance sheet other than those from the pension
liabilities made as IFRS entries. However, there are differences
caused by deferred taxes during the first quarter of 2004, when
the deferred taxes related to Raisio Chemicals' retained earnings
are entered in the IFRS financial statements, because the
divestment decision has been made. The effect of this entry on the
first and second quarter taxes is EUR 16.3 million.

No auditors’ report has been issued concerning this IFRS-release.
