Classification of Recolor Oy out of "held for sale and discontinued operations"

The Company was not able to complete the divestiture of Company-owned assets such as shares of Recolor Oy in the past twelve months after best efforts by the management. In addition, the recent restructure of the Company's main operating subsidiary also hinders the Company's ability to continue to pursue the divestiture. Therefore, the associated assets and liabilities and the net income within Recolor Oy, previously presented as held for sale and attributable as discontinued operations in the consolidated financial statements, have been classified back to normal continuing operations. The comparative figures have been reclassified to reflect these changes.
