STORA ENSO OYJ Stock Exchange Announcement 23 September 2003 at 10.00
Stora Enso's closed period two weeks
Stora Enso has changed the duration of its closed period to two
weeks. Stora Enso will therefore not comment or meet capital
market representatives or the media for two weeks prior to the
date when the results of a reporting period are announced. Until
now the closed period started immediately when a reporting
period ended and lasted until the results were announced.
This definition of the closed period will also from now define
the blocking period applied to permanent insiders and the
Company as purchaser of its own shares.
Stora Enso's closed period before announcement of the third
quarter results will start on Thursday 9 October 2003.
