OMHEX statement regarding decision by Stockholmsborsen's Disciplinary Committee


STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Nov. 17, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- In March this year OMHEX (formerly OM) announced a reorganization that involved a new way of working and resulted in redundancies. Stockholmsborsen investigated the information dissemination regarding the reorganization and deemed that OM had released information too late. The matter was considered to be minor, which is why Stockholmsborsen directed criticism against OM but did not submit the matter to Stockholmsborsen's disciplinary committee. Stockholmsborsen informed the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority as the matter involved a so called qualified owner of Stockholmsborsen. The Financial Supervisory Authority referred the matter to Stockholmsborsen's disciplinary committee.

Today, Stockholmsborsen's disciplinary committee resolved not to follow up with any disciplinary action or warning, as the breach is considered to be minor.

OMHEX's statement regarding the Disciplinary Committee's resolutions is: "It is good that the Disciplinary Committee has reviewed the matter and we are pleased that it has not resulted in any disciplinary consequences. Our continued ambition is to act as a role model regarding information dissemination amongst listed companies," said Anna Eriksson, VP Marketing & Communications, OMHEX.
