Regulatory News:

Today, SCA (STO:SCAA)(STO:SCAB) presents its 2012 Annual Report and
Sustainability Report on www.sca.com. In recent years, SCA has transformed
into a leading, global hygiene and forest products company with a strong and
award-winning sustainability profile. In conjunction with this, SCA has
decided to modernize its logotype and unveil its look in connection with the
publication of the Annual Report.

For SCA, 2012 was an eventful year marked by change. During the year, SCA
carried out some of the largest business transactions in its history,
accelerating the Group’s transformation into a leading, global hygiene and
forest products company. The acquisition of Georgia-Pacific’s European tissue
operations and the sale of the packaging operations were finalized.

“The sale of the packaging operations represented a further step in our
journey of change and ensures reduced sensitivity to economic fluctuations and
financial opportunities to grow in the hygiene business. In 2012, we continued
to prioritize efficiency, innovation and growth and, despite a turbulent
global economy, we increased our sales and profits in 2012,” says Jan
Johansson, President and CEO, SCA.

In conjunction with the publication of the Annual Report and Sustainability
Report, SCA is launching an updated logotype featuring stronger, more distinct
colors and softer lines. The communication concept Care of life has been
written out to clarify and strengthen the message of how SCA as a company can
make a difference for people, nature and society.

“We have chosen to update the SCA logotype to include it in the transformation
of our company and to better reflect our business operations,” says Jan
Johansson.
