Stockholm, Sweden, 20 February 2008 -- Global consumer goods and paper company SCA today increased its ownership in the Hong Kong-based tissue company Vinda from 14% to 19% of the shares.

Vinda, one of the leading brands with modern assets,is among the three largest companies within the fast growing tissue market in China.

On 29 March 2007, SCA initially acquired 20% of the shares in Vinda. This shareholding was later diluted to 14% when Vinda was listed through an IPO on the Hong Kong stock exchange in July 2007.
