In the Annual Report, President and CEO of SCA Jan Johansson had the following
comments:

“In 2013, we strengthened our position as a leading global hygiene and forest
products company and displayed a strong performance in terms of our strategic
priorities: growth, innovation and efficiency. We became the majority
shareholder in the Chinese tissue company Vinda during the year. Our extensive
efficiency programs delivered according to plan and we can reflect back on a
year of favorable sales growth and improved profitability.”

He continued:

“Innovation and sustainability drive SCA’s business and, during the year, SCA
launched some 30 innovations. One example is TENA Identifi, a system that makes
it possible to analyze and customize incontinence solutions for nursing homes at
an individual level. Innovation and sustainability are tightly interlinked
insofar as they function as each other’s drivers,” says Jan Johansson.
