MARTELA CORPORATION        STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 9 JAN 2019 AT  11.00 A.M.        
 
 
 
Martela Group lowers its revenue and operating result guidance for 2018. Revenue in the fourth quarter did not develop as previously estimated and this will impact negatively on the full year revenue and operating result. Revenue was mainly impacted by unclarity in the public sector in Finland because of the prolonged contract negotiations. Impact was materially shown in December sales, which traditionally has been stronger than in other months.
   

NEW GUIDANCE FOR 2018
 
Martela Group anticipates that its 2018 revenue and operating result will decrease compared to the previous year.
