Supplementary business for consideration at the general meeting of Norske Skogindustrier ASA

A request has been received from the shareholder Third Avenue Management to consider the following proposal at the general meeting of Norske Skogindustrier ASA on 24 April 2008: Article 9 of the articles of association is repealed.
 
Article 9 in the existing articles of association for Norske Skogindustrier ASA: "Any amendments to the articles of association will be made by the general meeting. A valid resolution requires a three-fourths (3/4) majority of the votes cast, and these votes must represent three-fourths (3/4) of the share capital represented at the general meeting."
 
The proposal has been received by the deadline for requesting business to be taken under consideration at the general meeting, in accordance with Section 5-11 of the Public Limited Liability Companies Act. The matter will be taken under consideration as new business item 13 at the company's general meeting.
 
If the proposal is adopted, it will then be possible to make amendments to the articles of association with the majority requirement that follows from Section 5-18 of the Public Limited Liability Companies Act. A decision to amend the articles of association would in that case require the endorsement of 2/3 of the votes cast and 2/3 of the share capital which is represented at the general meeting.
 
A new notice of the general meeting will be sent to all shareholders. A PDF version of the new notice is enclosed with this message and is also available on the company's website: www.norskeskog.com.
