Extraordinary general meeting

The corporate assembly of Norske Skog has decided to hold an extraordinary general meeting in the company's offices on Thursday 10 January 2008 at 1400 hrs.
The occasion is the Norske Skog shareholder Unionen AS having requested an extraordinary general meeting in Norske Skogindustrier ASA. On 11 December 2007, Unionen AS submitted a disclosure of interest notification to the Oslo Stock Exchange, in which it emerges that the company owns 5.78 per cent of the shares in Norske Skogindustrier ASA. Pursuant to Section 5-7 of the Public Limited Liability Companies Act, a minimum share ownership of 5 per cent in the company is required to demand an extraordinary general meeting.
Norske Skog will shortly send an agenda for the general meeting to the Oslo Stock Exchange.
