The first quarter of 2009: Weak earnings after significant drop in volume

Norske Skog's earnings for the first quarter of 2009 are considerably lower than the earnings in the fourth quarter of 2008, but still somewhat better than for the first quarter of 2008. The result is significantly negatively impacted by the sharp drop in global demand for newsprint and magazine paper.
For more information, see attached press release and quarterly report.
