Norske Skog: Norske Skog Walsum cuts production capacity

           Norske Skog: Norske Skog Walsum cuts production capacity

Norske Skog Walsum in Germany will permanently cease production at paper
machine PM4. The machine has an annual production capacity of 225 000 tonnes.
The shut down will take place in late December. Walsum's other paper machine,
PM10, will continue to produce LWC (Light Weighted Coated) paper, with an
annual production capacity of 200000 tonnes.

- Due to overcapacity in the market for CM (coated mechanical) magazine paper,
and unprofitable operations at the mill, we see no option but to shut down PM4
permanently. Despite considerable efforts from the employees to reduce costs,
the decision is unfortunately inevitable, says Sven Ombudstvedt, President and
CEO in Norske Skog.

Customers will receive deliveries from other Norske Skog mills and paper
machines. All existing supply commitments will be honoured.
