INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ OPINION

To the Supervisory Board of Arctic Paper S.A.

1. We have audited the attached consolidated financial statements of Arctic
Paper S.A. Group (‘the Group’), for which the holding company is Arctic Paper
S.A. (‘the Company‘) located in Poznań at Dąbrowskiego 334A, for the year ended
31 December 2013 containing the consolidated balance sheet as at 31 December
2013, the consolidated income statement, the consolidated statement of
comprehensive income, the consolidated statement of changes in equity, the
consolidated statement of cash flow for the period from 1 January 2013 to 31
December 2013 and the summary of significant accounting policies and other
explanatory notes (‘the attached consolidated financial statements’).

2. The truth and fairness[1] (http://#_ftn1) of the attached consolidated
financial statements, the preparation of the attached consolidated financial
statements in accordance with the required applicable accounting policies and
the proper maintenance of the consolidation documentation are the responsibility
of the Company’s Management Board. In addition, the Company’s Management Board
and Members of the Supervisory Board are required to ensure that the attached
consolidated financial statements and the Directors’ Report meet the
requirements of the Accounting Act dated 29 September 1994 (Journal of Laws
2013.330 with subsequent amendments – ‘the Accounting Act’). Our responsibility
was to audit the attached consolidated financial statements and to express an
opinion on whether, based on our audit, these financial statements comply, in
all material respects, with the required applicable accounting policies and
whether they truly and fairly[2] (http://#_ftn2) reflect, in all material
respects, the financial position and results of the operations of the Group.

3. We conducted our audit of the attached consolidated financial statements in
accordance with:

  · chapter 7 of the Accounting Act,
  · national auditing standards issued by the National Council of Statutory
Auditors,

in order to obtain reasonable assurance whether these financial statements are
free of material misstatement. In particular, the audit included examining, to a
large extent on a test basis, documentation supporting the amounts and
disclosures in the attached consolidated financial statements. The audit also
included assessing the accounting principles adopted and used and significant
estimates made by the Company’s Management Board, as well as evaluating the
overall presentation of the attached consolidated financial statements. We
believe our audit has provided a reasonable basis to express our opinion on the
attached consolidated financial statements treated as a whole.

4. In our opinion, the attached consolidated financial statements, in all
material respects:

  · present truly and fairly all information material for the assessment of the
results of the Group’s operations for the period from 1 January 2013 to 31
December 2013, as well as its financial position[3] (http://#_ftn3) as at 31
December 2013;
  · have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting
Standards as adopted by the EU;
  · are in respect of the form and content, in accordance with the legal
regulations governing the preparation of financial statements.

5. We have read the ‘Directors’ Report for the period from 1 January 2013 to 31
December 2013 and the rules of preparation of annual statements’ (‘the
Directors’ Report’) and concluded that the information derived from the attached
consolidated financial statements reconciles with these financial statements.
The information included in the Directors’ Report corresponds with the relevant
regulations of the Decree of the Minister of Finance dated 19 February 2009 on
current and periodic information published by issuers of securities and
conditions for recognition as equivalent the information required by laws of non
-EU member states (Journal of Laws 2009.33.259 with subsequent amendments).
