Suominen's net sales and financial performance from January to September        
improved on the previous year.                                                  

The outlook for the remainder of the year: Net sales are expected to grow on    
2006. Suominen's operating profit is expected to increase on the previous year, 
and result for the financial year is expected to be positive.                   


GROUP FINANCIAL RESULTS                                                         

Suominen Corporation's net sales for the third quarter totalled EUR 55.7 million
(51.4), up 8 per cent on the figure for the corresponding period in 2006. The   
volume of sales grew in all units. Operating profit was EUR 0.5 million (0.3),  
profit before taxes EUR -0.5 million (-0.7) and profit after taxes EUR -0.3     
million (-0.4).                                                                 

Net sales for the nine-month period totalled EUR 161.2 million (148.4), an      
increase of 9 per cent on the previous year. Operating profit was EUR 2.2       
million (0.4), profit before taxes EUR -0.6 million (-2.5) and profit after     
taxes EUR -0.4 million (-1.7).                                                  

The rise in raw material prices, which has continued all year, accelerated at   
the end of the period under review, and the delay in transferring the rises in  
the sales prices had a negative impact on performance. The Wipes and Nonwovens  
business area did not achieve the targets set for production efficiency during  
the reporting period.                                                           


COST SAVING AND OPERATIONAL ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMME                               

Suominen's ‘Stairs to Top' enhancement programme is to develop operations and   
improve efficiency on a continuous basis, and to increase sales. The impact of  
its cost saving and enhancement measures yielded some EUR +3 million during the 
period under review. The programme proceeded as planned in terms of cost        
savings, but the improvement of efficiency progressed more slowly than planned  
during the period under review.                                                 


FINANCING                                                                       

Interest-bearing liabilities totalled EUR 97.3 million, i.e. EUR 7.9 million    
more than at the beginning of the year. Liabilities include capital loans of EUR
2 million. Net financial expenses were EUR 2.9 million (2.9) or 1.8 per cent    
(1.9) of net sales. A total of EUR 5.5 million was tied up in working capital in
the cash flow statement mainly due to increase in trade receivables. The equity 
ratio was 30.4 per cent (32.5), and the gearing ratio (ratio of interest-bearing
net liabilities to shareholders' equity) was 170.6 per cent (158.2). Cash flow  
from operations was EUR 0.15 per share (0.32).                                  


INVESTMENTS                                                                     

The Company's gross investments in production totalled EUR 9.6 million (2.2).   
Planned depreciation amounted to EUR 10.4 million (11.0). Wet Wipes accounted   
for EUR 2.3 million, Nonwovens EUR 1.5 million and Flexible Packaging EUR 5.8   
million of total investments. The investments focussed on the extension of      
Flexible Packaging's production facilities in Poland, and production efficiency 
and maintenance in all units.                                                   


SEGMENT RESULTS                                                                 

During the period under review, net sales of the Wipes and Nonwovens business   
area totalled EUR 103.5 million, an increase of 12 per cent on the corresponding
period in 2006. Sales of Nonwovens increased substantially thanks to strong     
demand, while internal deliveries were reduced. The Wipes and Nonwovens business
area recorded an operating profit of EUR 0.4 million (-0.8).                    

Net sales of Wet Wipes totalled EUR 51.3 million. Sales volumes increased, while
sales prices fell and net sales remained on the level of 2006. Deliveries to    
brand owners increased. Sales to retailers decreased on the previous year, and  
the planned sales volume was not achieved. The production efficiency of the     
production lines improved on the previous year, but the number of personnel was 
planned for a higher production volume. Deliveries have increased since the     
assortment re-launches implemented by customers in late summer. The investment  
in automation of warehouse handling was completed as planned. The business model
of the unit will be revised to make its product range and product concepts even 
more customer- and consumer-oriented. The aim is to increase sales and improve  
profitability. Therefore, a Director of New Business Development and Marketing  
was appointed for the Wipes and Nonwovens business area. The new Director is    
responsible for steering the development of new business and innovations.       

Net sales of Nonwovens increased by 19 per cent to EUR 58.4 million thanks to   
increased sales of hydroentangled material. Deliveries to the US market remained
brisk and increased on the previous year, whereas sales to Europe decreased.    
However, the focus of deliveries is expected to shift back to Europe during the 
end of the year. Sales of thermally bonded nonwovens remained at the same level 
as in 2006. Average sales prices rose slightly, but the rise only partly        
compensated for the increases in raw material prices. The prices of both        
oil-based raw materials and viscose have been clearly rising during the year.   
The efficiency of operations has been negatively affected by problems relating  
to production, and the efficiency-enhancement measures are being implemented at 
a slower pace than originally planned. The new power plant for process heat has 
reduced energy costs. The investment project to improve the efficiency of       
operations and treatment of process waters will be started by the end of the    
year. The unit's new Production Director started in this position in September. 

Net sales of Flexible Packaging totalled EUR 58.1 million, an increase of 4 per 
cent on the previous year. Flexible Packaging generated an operating profit of  
EUR 2.2 million (1.8). The increase in net sales was due to higher sales        
volumes. The volume increase was most clearly visible in carrier bags and       
special products. Growth in hygiene product packaging and food packaging was    
more moderate. In food packaging, the sales of printed labels for PET bottles   
increased. The prices for plastic raw materials have risen by nearly one fifth  
during the nine-month period. Due to the delay in sales price increases, it was 
possible to transfer only part of the higher raw material costs to the sales    
prices during the period under review. The new printing machine at the Polish   
plant started up as planned, and the plant premises are currently being         
expanded. Sales of flexible packaging in Eastern Europe and Russia increased    
substantially on the previous year. Efficiency-enhancement measures have        
focussed on improving the efficiency of printing and converting. The number of  
personnel at the Swedish plant will be reduced by the end of the year.          


SHARE CAPITAL AND SHARES                                                        

Share trading and price                                                         

The number of Suominen Corporation's shares traded on the OMX Nordic Exchange   
Helsinki from 1 January to 30 September 2007 was 6,090,526 or 25.7 per cent of  
the shares included in the Company's share capital. The trading price varied    
from EUR 2.97 to EUR 3.79. The final trading price was EUR 3.28. The Company's  
market capitalisation was EUR 77.7 million on 30 September 2007.                


Share capital                                                                   

The registered number of issued shares of Suominen totals 23,720,112 shares or  
EUR 11,860,056. There were no changes in share capital during the period under  
review.                                                                         


The Company's own shares                                                        

On 1 January 2007, the Company held 51,121 of its own shares, with an           
acquisition value of EUR 3.19 per share.                                        

The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on 29 March 2007 authorised the 
Board of Directors to decide on the acquisition of a maximum of 1,186,000 of the
Company's own shares. The authorisation will be valid for 18 months after the   
decision of the General Meeting. The repurchased shares will be used as payment 
in business acquisitions or other arrangements in the Company's business, to    
finance investments, to implement incentive programmes, will be held by the     
Company, or will be otherwise conveyed or cancelled. The Company's own shares   
will be repurchased otherwise than in proportion to the holdings of the         
shareholders by using non-restricted equity through public trading on the       
Helsinki Stock Exchange at the market price prevailing at the time of           
acquisition.                                                                    

The General Meeting also authorised the Board of Directors to decide on the     
conveyance of a maximum of 1,237,000 of the Company's own shares. The           
authorisation will be valid for 18 months after the end of the General Meeting. 
Within the authorisation the Company has conveyed 14,778 of its own shares as   
emoluments to the Board of Directors in the period under review. The price of   
the conveyed shares was EUR 3.45 per share.                                     

During the period under review, the Board of Directors did not exercise its     
authorities to buy the Company's own shares. On 30 September 2007, Suominen     
Corporation held a total of 36,343 of its own shares, accounting for 0.0 per    
cent of the share capital and votes.                                            


Stock options 2006 and 2007                                                     

Under stock option plan 2006, a maximum of 300,000 stock options shall be issued
to the President and CEO of Suominen Corporation as specified by the Board of   
Directors. Each stock option entitles its holder to subscribe for one Suominen  
Corporation's share with an equivalent book value of EUR 0.50. The Board of     
Directors decided to issue 100,000 stock options according to the 2006B stock   
option plan. The share subscription price for the stock options is the trade    
volume-weighted average price of the Company share on the Helsinki Stock        
Exchange in May 2007 or EUR 3.44. The subscription period for the 2006B stock   
options is from 2 May 2009 to 30 October 2010.                                  

Under stock option plan 2007, a maximum of 200,000 stock options shall be issued
to the Executive Team of Suominen Corporation as specified by the Board of      
Directors. Each stock option entitles its holder to subscribe for one Suominen  
Corporation's share with an equivalent book value of EUR 0.50. The Board of
Directors decided to issue 80,000 stock options according to the 2007A stock 
option plan. The share subscription price for the stock options is the trade    
volume-weighted average price of the Company share on the Helsinki Stock        
Exchange in May 2007 or EUR 3.44. The subscription period for the 2007A stock   
options is from 2 May 2009 to 30 October 2010.                                  

As the registered number of Suominen's issued shares totals 23,720,112, the     
number of shares may rise to a maximum of 24,220,112 after stock option         
subscriptions.                                                                  


Other authorisation for the board of directors                                  

The Board of Directors is not currently authorised to issue shares, convertible 
bonds or bonds with warrants.                                                   


Notifications of changes in holdings                                            

On 2 May 2007, Sampo Life Insurance Company reported that its holding in the    
share capital and voting rights of Suominen Corporation had decreased to 3.04   
per cent.                                                                       


EVENTS AFTER THE REPORTING PERIOD                                               

Pekka Rautala, Vice President and General Manager of the Wet Wipes business     
unit, resigned and left Suominen after the period under review. His duties will 
be carried out by the President and CEO of Suominen Corporation until further   
notice.                                                                         


OUTLOOK                                                                         

Net sales for 2007 are expected to improve on the previous year. Suominen's and 
particularly Wet Wipes' net sales in the fourth quarter are expected to be      
higher than those of the previous quarters. The recent sharp rise in raw        
material prices is expected to have peaked for the time being. Suominen's       
operating profit is expected to increase on the previous year and result for the
financial year is expected to be positive.                                      

The estimate on sales growth is based on forecasts given by customers and on our
own forecasts. Factors improving Suominen's profitability include cost saving   
and operational enhancement programmes as well as growth in sales, whereas      
increases in raw material prices will weaken profitability.                     

Expanding operations in Poland, in particular, is expected to increase          
investments to a level of EUR 12 million in 2007.                               


NEAR-FUTURE UNCERTAINTIES                                                       

Uncertainties affecting Suominen's business are described in the report by the  
Board of Directors for 2006. The estimate on the development of Suominen's net  
sales is partly based on forecasts and delivery plans received from customers.  
Changes in the forecasts and plans due to changes in the market situation or    
customers' stocks may result in net sales that differ from the forecasted       
amount. Rapid fluctuations in raw material prices may affect Suominen's margins.
Uncertainty relating to prices has increased not only in oil-based raw materials
but also in other raw materials.                                                

The sensitivity of Suominen's goodwill to changes in the business environment is
described in the notes to the financial statements for 2006. The annual testing 
of goodwill according to IAS 36 standard will be based on the strategy and      
budget, and it will be done by the end of the year. Indications of potential    
impairment could arise before that if long-term interest rates rise or if there 
are unfavourable changes in the sales volumes of Wet Wipes.                     


SUOMINEN CORPORATION CONSOLIDATED 1 JANUARY - 30 SEPTEMBER 2007 (IFRS)          

This interim report has been prepared in compliance with IAS 34 Interim         
Financial Reporting. Principles for preparing the interim report are the same as
those used for preparing the financial statements for 2006, and this interim    
report should be read parallel to the financial statements for 2006. Amendments 
to and interpretations of published accounting standards and new accounting     
standards that came into effect on 1 January 2007 are presented in the financial
statements for 2006. Suominen has adopted the IFRS 7 Financial Instruments:     
Disclosures standard, which came into effect on 1 January 2007, and the         
amendments to IAS 1 relating to it. The Company also complies with the          
interpretation of IFRIC 10 Interim Financial Reporting and Impairment, which    
prohibits, for example, the reversal of impairment losses recognised for        
goodwill during previous interim periods. In its principles for preparing the   
financial statements, Suominen has not applied any changes allowed by the       
published new standards and interpretations prior to their official             
introduction. The most important reform known concerns segment reporting; the   
standard on which is expected to enter into force on 1 January 2009.            

The figures in this interim report have not been audited.
