The Parent company Cloetta AB (publ.) has, according to the Swedish Securities Market Act, to publish a half-yearly report covering the period of September 1, 2011 to February 29, 2012. The reason is the change of the financial year for the company. Therefore, this report mainly covers the activities included in the head office functions, and not the consolidated activities of the Group. The Cloetta Group will publish consolidated financial statements for the first calendar quarter, covering the period January 1 to March 31, 2012, on May 16, 2012.
