Solidium’s Managing Director Kari Järvinen’s comments:

“Companies in Solidium’s portfolio have in general recovered well from the financial crisis. Value development of Solidium’s portfolio during the past half year period was good. The value of the company’s portfolio increased to 9,548 million euros and yield was 20.1 per cent. Solidium paid a dividend of 356 million euros to the State of Finland. We expect the dividend income to increase in spring 2011, which would enable us to pay increasing dividends to the State from the current financial year.”
