Stora Enso Seeks to End Registration of its Securities on the New York Stock Exchange
Helsinki, Finland, 07 January 2008 -- On 07 January 2008, Stora Enso filed a Form 15F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to deregister from the New York Stock Exchange and terminate reporting obligations.

The action follows the decision of Stora Enso's board of directors on 07 December 2007 to delist Stora Enso's American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) from the New York Stock Exchange and deregister and terminate its reporting obligations under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) for both its ADRs and its registered debt securities.

The deregistration and termination of reporting obligations is expected to take effect in April 2008.

In addition, on 19 December 2007, Stora Enso filed a Form 25 with the SEC, pursuant to which the last day of trading of Stora Enso's ADRs on the New York Stock Exchange was 28 December 2007.

Following the delisting, Stora Enso is maintaining an ADR facility. Its ADRs are traded over-the-counter (OTC) in the United States in the International OTCQX. Stora Enso's ordinary shares will continue to trade on the OMX Nordic Exchanges in Helsinki and Stockholm.

This notice is being published pursuant to the requirements of Rule 12h-6(h) of the Exchange Act to alert U.S. investors who have purchased Stora Enso's ADRs about Stora Enso's intended exit from the Exchange Act registration and reporting system.

Upon the filing of Form 15F, Stora Enso's reporting obligations under the Exchange Act are immediately suspended and the deregistration will become effective 90 days later, unless Form 15F is withdrawn by Stora Enso before then or the SEC delays the deregistration process. Stora Enso reserves the right to withdraw the Form 15F for any reason before its effectiveness.

Stora Enso will continue to publish its Annual Report and Accounts and other documents and communications in accordance with Exchange Act Rule 12g3-2(b) in English on its website (www.storaenso.com).
