FISCAL YEAR 2006 IN BRIEF
The business operations of Fiskars Corporation consists of the consumer goods
operations managed by Fiskars Brands, the boat and metal products operations at Inha
Works Ltd, and the Real Estate Group. In addition, Fiskars has a significant holding in
the associated company Wärtsilä.
During the fiscal year 2006, Fiskars acquired the Swedish Silva Group and divested its
Power Sentry operations in the United States. The Corporation is also completing the
large-scale reorganization of its US manufacturing operations.


REPORT BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS 2006

Net sales of Fiskars Corporation increased by 4.9% in the fiscal year and was EUR 534.9
million (509.9). A total of 47.7% (43.1) of net sales were generated in Europe, and 44.1%
(49.6) in the United States. The shift towards Europe was due to divestment and
acquisition transactions, general development of the market and, to a lesser extent, to
changes in currency exchange rates.

The costs of reorganizing the US operations of the Corporation's largest division, Fiskars
Brands, announced in the Fall of 2005, were booked and totaled EUR 50.3 million, in
accordance with the original plans.

The number of employees at the end of the year was 3,003 (3,220). The number of
employees decreased particularly in the US, where three production plants were closed
and two turned into predominantly packing and distribution centers. Outsourcing
increased, particularly in the United States, and the newly launched products have been
well received. Of the products for sale during early spring in 2007, however, a
considerable proportion has been manufactured using production capacity that has
subsequently been closed. The cost-effectiveness of outsourcing will not become visible
until after the first quarter.

The Corporation's operating profit was EUR 85.8 million (22.7). The reported non-
recurring costs related to the reorganization were at the estimated level, EUR 10.6 million
(39.7). Operating profit from wholly-owned operations before non-recurring items was
EUR 37.8 million (33.8). Comparable profitability measured in operating profit per
centage improved to 7.1% (6.6).

The Fiskars Corporation income from associate Wärtsilä results was EUR 58.6 million
(28.6).
The profit before taxes for the fiscal year was EUR 76.7 million (65.4). The profit for
2005 includes EUR 49.8 million in gains from the sale of Wärtsilä shares.

The Power Sentry operations divested during the fiscal year is now reported under
discontinued operations, separate from continuing operations, and the Income Statement
for 2005 has been adjusted accordingly.

The profit for the fiscal year was EUR 82.0 million (62.1). The earnings per share for the
parent company shareholders was EUR 1.06 (0.80).

OPERATIONS

FISKARS BRANDS, INC.

Structural changes
At the end of June, Fiskars Brands sold the Power Sentry division, which marketed
accessories for home appliances in the United States. The transaction was part of Fiskars
Brands' strategy of focusing on core operations. The division had its own brands, and
there was no significant operational connection to other operations of Fiskars Brands. Net
sales for the Power Sentry division in 2005 were EUR 41.9 million, the number of
employees 42, and the capital tied up in its operations was EUR 5.5 million. Gains from
the sale of the division, together with the accrued profits for the first half of the year,
EUR 15.2 million (3.9), is reported in discontinued operations. The Power Sentry
division was sold for cash ; the transaction was final, and at the end of the fiscal year
there were no open items relating to the sale.

The acquisition of the Swedish Silva Group was closed at the end of August 2006. The
transaction comprised Silva Sweden AB, its US subsidiary The Brunton Company; the
Group's European sales companies in the United Kingdom, France and Germany; and a
majority in a production company in China. The investment was EUR 25.6 million. The
Silva Group's annual net sales have been in excess of EUR 30 million. Silva and Brunton
have strengthened the Fiskars Outdoor Recreation division by extending its product range
to include, in particular, hiking products. The acquisition also brings Fiskars Brands new
customers and distribution channels, particularly in the European markets. The wide
product range of Silva and Brunton, including compasses, headlamps, and binoculars, are
well respected brandnames with a good reputation. The figures for the Silva Group have
been consolidated from the beginning of September.

The downsizing of the company's own manufacturing capacity, which was part of the
reorganization begun in the US in the Fall, 2005, has in practice been completed, with
non-recurring costs for the measures during the 2006 fiscal year totaling EUR 10.6
million (39.7). Of these, some EUR 3.8 million were costs related to the reduction of
personnel, with the remaining EUR 6.8 million being write-downs of fixed assets. The
effects of the streamlining measures will become evident gradually during the first half of
the year. As part of the reorganization scheme, Fiskars Brands discontinued
manufacturing and marketing garden hoses and floor mats, and the two plants used for
their manufacture were closed in the summer. The combined net sales of these operations
in 2005 was some EUR 21 million and they employed 130 people.

Fiskars Brands has outsourced the manufacturing in the US of most of its craft products
and a significant proportion of its garden tools. In future, the Craft and Garden divisions
will focus more on product development and marketing. In these product categories, one
plant has been closed down while two other factories have been converted into packaging
and distribution centers.

As a part of the streamlining of the Fiskars corporate structure, a holding company in
Sweden was liquidated at the end of the fiscal year; and Fiskars Brands Europe Aps,
which owns Fiskars Brands European subsidiaries, was transferred into direct ownership
by the parent company. At the end of the fiscal year, a sales company was founded in
Spain.

Fiskars Brands Operations
Fiskars Brands net sales grew by 3.8% and were EUR 489.9 million (472.0). In the main
market areas, sales in Europe totaled EUR 214.3 million (185.6), with EUR 233.5 million
(254.9) in the United States. The European share of sales increased, being 43.7% (39.3),
while the US share was 47.7% (54.0). The Silva Group's contribution to the increase of
net sales was EUR 12.5 million.

Fiskars Brands operating profit was EUR 21.1 million (-5.6). The non-recurring costs of
the reorganization project totaled EUR 10.6 million (39.7). Excluding the non-recurring
costs the operating profit was, as predicted, at last year's level at EUR 31.7 million
(34.1). Related to sales, the operating profit was EUR 4.3% (-1.2).

Competition in the Fiskars product categories continued to be keen. In the US and the
largest retail chains, there were some changes in the emphasis of product selection, not all
of which were favorable to Fiskars. The shelf space of everyday commodities and
perishables in the distribution channel is growing, while the space reserved for seasonal
consumer goods is being reduced.

More effort than in previous years was put into developing and marketing new products
during the fiscal year and marketing was brought closer to the consumers, particularly in
the crafts sector. The supply chain has changed and become more demanding, so more
was done to ensure the functionality of the supply chain while maintaining high quality.
The costs of these measures had an effect on  profitability during the fiscal year.

European markets developed favorably; more than 10% of the 16% increase in sales was
organic growth. Sales increased both in the traditionally strong market areas and in the
countries of eastern central Europe. The favorable development of sales also showed in
increased profitability. In other significant markets, such as Canada and Australia, sales
grew and profitability improved.

Of the EUR 37.5 million (24.1) capital expenditure made by Fiskars Brands, the
investment in the Silva Group was the largest at EUR 25.6 million. In 2005, some EUR
11.9 million were spent on acquisitions. The remaining capital expenditure was mostly in
tooling for new products, logistics centers, and the maintenance of production facilities.
Due to the fact that more and more of the manufacturing is subcontracted, Fiskars aims to
own the strategic tools and molds used in the manufacturing processes.

Research and development costs totaled EUR 5.5 million (4.9), which was some 1.1% of
net sales (1.0). Capitalized product development cost totaled EUR 0.4 million (0.5). The
most important new product innovations in garden tools were developed at the R&D unit
in Billnäs, Finland, whereas most of the product development work done in the US is for
new Craft and Outdoor Recreation products.

Fiskars Brands goodwill, which was increased by the acquisition of the Silva Group,
totaled EUR 22.4 million at the end of the fiscal year (12.8). Goodwill impairments tests
based on future cash flows are carried out annually for each of the cash generating units.
On the basis of the calculations, there was no need for impairment.  In 2005, the goodwill
of the Garden division in the US was impaired by EUR 19.7 million.

INHA WORKS
Net sales for Inha Works increased by 14.5%, totaling EUR 37.2 million (32.4). The
operating profit was EUR 3.7 million (3.5). Profitability was constrained by continued
sharp increase in the price of aluminum. The operating profit percentage was 9.9 (10.8).
The demand for boats continued to grow healthily in the main market areas and the
demand for Buster boats increased especially in Finland, Scandinavia, and Russia.

Production capacity was in full use throughout the year and the smaller boat models were
contact manufactured. A new boat model, the Buster X, was launched in the Fall and
sales got off to a good start. The new model has a variety of different layout options, and
in size it comes between the earlier Buster L and Buster XL models.

Buster boats celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2007.

The sales of other Inha Works products, hinges and forged products, continued
satisfactorily, as did the profitability of the operations.

During the year, capital expenditure of some EUR 1.2 million (3.4) was made, mostly in
developing production and tools for new boat models. Research and development costs
were EUR 0.6 million (0.5) or 1.6% of net sales (1.6). The costs were mostly related to
the development of the boat range.

REAL ESTATE GROUP
In addition to leasing real estate to corporate and external customers, the Real Estate
Group manages the Corporation's forests. The change in market value of biological assets
is reported in profits from operating activities. During the 2006 fiscal year, the price of
standing timber increased, whereas it had decreased during 2005. The value of standing
timber increased by EUR 4.8 million (-0.8) over the year. The net sales for the Real
Estate Group, of which the increase in the value of biological assets formed a significant
part, was EUR 10.3 million (8.9) and the operating profit was EUR 7.6 million (2.0).
Capital expenditure during the fiscal year totaled EUR 1.9 million (2.9).

ASSOCIATE WÄRTSILÄ
Income from Fiskars associate Wärtsilä was EUR 58.6 million (28.6). The considerable
increase was due both to the favorable development of Wärtsilä's operations and the non-
recurring gains the associated company made through transactions. The latter were
mostly gains from the sale of shares in Assa Abloy and Wärtsilä associate Ovako, their
contribution to Fiskars' share of the profits being EUR 28.6 million (1.9).

At the end of the fiscal year, Fiskars share of Wärtsilä capital was 16.55% (16.81) and its
share of the votes 30.44% (30.58). Wärtsilä's share capital and number of votes changed
during the year, as holders of Wärtsilä options exercised their right to acquire shares.
During the 2006 fiscal year, Fiskars did not trade in Wärtsilä stock; in 2005, selling
Wärtsilä shares generated a gain of EUR 49.8 million.

Wärtsilä paid Fiskars a total of EUR 47.5 million in dividends (17.1). The book value of
the Fiskars Wärtsilä holding at the end of the year was EUR 239.1 million (231.9), of
which EUR 37.7 million was goodwill (38.1). The equity of Fiskars Corporation includes
Fiskars' share of the  fair value reserve included in Wärtsilä's consolidated shareholders'
equity, totaling EUR 21.6 million at the end of the year (24.7). The market value of
Fiskars shares in Wärtsilä was EUR 645 million at the end of the year (394).


CORPORATE PROFIT AND TAXES
The operating profit of the Corporation, including Fiskars' income from associate
Wärtsilä, was EUR 85.8 million (22.7). Net financial costs were EUR 9.1 million (7.1)
and included investment income totaling EUR 0.8 million (2.5). Financial costs were at
the same level as in the previous fiscal year.

Profit after financial items was EUR 76.7 million (65.4).

Taxes on continuing operations for the fiscal year were EUR 9.8 million (7.3). The gain
from the sale of the Power Sentry division less the deferred tax assets are reported in
discontinued operations together with the accumulated pre-sale profit from the Power
Sentry operations. The income statement from the previous year was adjusted
accordingly.

Profit for the fiscal year was EUR 82.0 million (62.1). The share of new minority owners
in the profits was negligible.

Earnings per share were EUR 1.06 (0.80) and continuing operations represented EUR
0.86 of that (0.75).

BALANCE SHEET AND FINANCING
Cash flow from operations was EUR 99.0 million (58.6). Working capital decreased
compared to the previous financial year. Inventories decreased by EUR 7.6 million
despite that inventory tends to grow with a longer supply chain and supply periods.  The
inventory management process was improved during the fiscal year. The restructuring
costs influenced cash flow by EUR 3.8 million (1.0). Once again, dividends from
Wärtsilä totaling EUR 47.5 million (17.1) were an important source of corporate cash
flow.

Capital expenditure  totaled EUR 45.5 million (30.7). Of these, some EUR 26.0 million
(11.9) were acquisitions and at EUR 19.5 million (18.8) capital expenditure in non-
current assets was less than the depreciation. The investment cash flow was EUR 10.1
million (52.0) negative.

The Corporation's interest-bearing net debt decreased by EUR 38.1 million and was EUR
101.9 million (140.0) at the year end. The capital loan of EUR 45.1 million at the end of
2004 is reported in interest-bearing long-term liabilities.

The Corporation's liquidity remained good. Cash at the end of the year totaled EUR 44.9
million (21.7), in addition to which there are considerable unused credit limits at hand.

Consolidated shareholders' equity was EUR 421.8 million (402.7) at the end of the year.
Dividends paid during the year totaled EUR 57.1 million (22.8). The return on equity was
19.9% (16.8). The equity to assets ratio increased and was 60% (57). Net gearing
continued to decrease and was 24% (35).

Total assets were on the previous year's level at EUR 707.2 million (702.7). Non-current
assets amounted to EUR 460.0 million (458.5). Non-current tax assets decreased by EUR
13.6 million to EUR 30.4 million (44.0). Fiskars consolidated goodwill of EUR 22.4
million was entirely related to Fiskars Brands. All the biological assets of EUR 35.0
million (29.9) are in Finland. Investment properties comprise of buildings leased to
external parties by the Real Estate Group as well as those leased by Fiskars Brands in the
United States that were no longer used by the operating units. The fixed assets of the two
plants, closed down as part of the Fiskars Brands reorganization, have been sold during
the fiscal year. The fixed assets of the two factories changed into logistics centers bear a
book value of EUR 7.7 million,  the management's assessment is that there is no need for
a write-off.

PERSONNEL
Corporate personnel numbered 3,003 employees at the end of the fiscal year (3,220). The
comparable figure does not include the 42 people who worked in Power Sentry. Most of
the planned changes in personnel caused by the restructuring of manufacturing at Fiskars
Brands were realized during the 2006 year, decreasing the number of personnel by 400.
Acquisition of the Silva Group increased the corporate staff by 273. The number of
employees at the Billnäs plant in Finland decreased to 435 (529) while the number of
employees at Inha Works increased by 30 to a total of 301 (271). The average number of
employees was 3,167 (3,426), a decrease of 259.

During the fiscal year, a total of EUR 121.3 million (125.9) were paid in wages, salaries
and benefits.

CORPORATE MANAGEMENT
Mr. Heikki Allonen was CEO and President. Ms. Jutta Karlsson was appointed general
counsel for Fiskars Corporation and secretary to the Board on June 14, 2006. In 2006, the
Board of Directors defined the basis for a 3-year bonus program for the CEO. The
program is based on the development of the share price and it is capped.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
Fiskars complies with the administrative and corporate governance rules for stock
exchange listed entities published by the Helsinki Exchanges, the Central Chamber of
Commerce, and the Confederation of Finnish Industries, effective in 2004.

Fiskars also complies with the new insider rules of Financial Supervision and Helsinki
Exchanges adopted on January 1, 2006. The Corporation further applies internal insider
guidelines as adopted on July 1, 2006.

MANAGEMENT OF RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES
Fiskars most important operational risks relate to supply chain control, structural changes
in the retail business environment and also partly to the development of raw-material
prices. Supply chain control has been improved through increased quality control, close
ties with suppliers and control of immaterial rights. Structural changes in distribution
channels represents a risk mainly in the US. The impact of those changes is minimized
through flexibility in marketing and careful forecasting. Changes in the cost of raw
materials directly influences the cost of the company's own manufacturing processes and
indirectly outsourcing. The Corporation has not used raw-material derivative instruments,
but strives to make long-term contracts with key suppliers of raw materials. In order to
generate growth, the ability to produce innovative new products responding to the needs
of the customers is of particular importance.

The development of associate Wärtsilä's profitability has a significant impact on Fiskars'
results, with the associated company's ability to pay dividends influencing Fiskars' cash
flow. A significant decrease in Wärtsilä share prices might result in an impairment of the
Corporation's book value.

Fiskars hedges its financial risks in accordance with the practice approved by the
Corporation's Board of Directors. Investments are made only in solid financial
institutions and other low-risk companies or funds. Other receivables mainly consist of
trade receivables and are relatively widely spread geographically and between customers.
The credit ratings of major customers are generally high. No significant credit losses have
materialized during the fiscal year.

Insurance policies are used to cover property risks and significant operational risks. Other
risks associated with balance sheet values are estimated to be minor.

PURCHASE AND SALE OF OWN SHARES

The Board of Directors had an authorization to purchase and sell the Corporation's shares
until the Annual General Meeting on March 20, 2006, provided that the total nominal
value of such shares and the votes carried by them did not exceed five percent (5%) of
the share capital and the total votes in the company.

At the Annual General Meeting, the Board was authorized to purchase and sell the
Corporation's shares provided that the total number of such shares or of the votes carried
by them did not exceed ten percent (10%) of the share capital and the total votes in the
company. The Board did not exercise its authorization during the review period.

At December 31, 2006, the company held in total 127,512 of its own A-shares and 420
K-shares. The holding has not changed during the review period, and the number of
shares equals 0.2% of the entire share capital of the company and 0.03% of the votes.


ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2006

Fiskars Corporation Annual General Meeting held on March 20, 2006 decided to
distribute a dividend of EUR 0.45 per share of Series A, totaling EUR 24,667,641, and

number of the company's own shares at the Helsinki Exchanges in a proportion deviating
from the shareholders' existing proportionate holdings at share prices quoted on the
Helsinki Exchanges at the time of such acquisition or divestment, provided that the total
nominal value of such shares and the votes carried by them do not exceed ten percent
(10%) of the share capital and the total votes in the company, whereby the authorization
concerns a maximum of 5,494,449 of the company's own Series A shares and a
maximum of 2,256,570 of Series K. The authorization is valid for a period of one year
from March 20, 2006.


CONSTITUTIVE MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Convening after the Annual General Meeting, the Board elected Olli Riikkala its
Chairman, and Alexander Ehrnrooth and Paul Ehrnrooth as Vice Chairmen. The Board
appointed Gustaf Gripenberg Chairman of the Audit Committee and Alexander
Ehrnrooth, Paul Ehrnrooth, and Ilona Ervasti-Vaintola as its other members. The Board
appointed Olli Riikkala Chairman of the Compensation Committee and Kaj- Gustaf
Bergh and Karl Grotenfelt as its other members.

On October 4, 2006, the Chairman of the Board Olli Riikkala notified the company that
he would be on sick leave until the end of the year. At a meeting on October 5, 2006, the
Board elected Kaj-Gustaf Bergh its Chairman for the remainder of the fiscal year.

On December 13, 2006, the Board decided to create a Nomination Committee. Kaj-
Gustaf Bergh was elected Chairman of the Nomination Committee, and Alexander
Ehrnrooth and Paul Ehrnrooth its other members.


EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING

The Extraordinary General Meeting of Fiskars Corporation on December 12, 2006,
decided to distribute an extra dividend for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2005. An
extra dividend of EUR 0.30 per share of Series A, totaling EUR 16,445,094.00, and EUR
0.28 per share of Series K, totaling EUR 6,318,280.64 was distributed.

SHARES AND SHARE PRICES
At the end of the 2006 fiscal year, Fiskars Corporation's share capital totaled EUR
77,510,200 and there were no changes in the share capital or number of shares during the
year. The Corporation has two series of shares, the A Series and the K Series, both of
which are quoted on the Nordic List of the Helsinki Stock Exchange. The shares of Series
A have one vote per share and the shares of Series K have 20 votes per share. The
dividend per share paid out per share of Series A shall according to the Corporation's
Articles of Association be a minimum of 2% higher than the dividend paid per a share of
Series K.

On December 31, 2006, the number of shares of Series A was 54,944,492 while the
number of shares of Series K was 22,565,708, totaling 77,510,200 shares. The shares of
Series A had 54,944,492 votes and the shares of Series K had 451,314,160 votes, totaling
506,258,652 votes.

At the end of December, the price of Fiskars A shares on the Helsinki Stock Exchange
was EUR 12.29 (9.60 at the beginning of the year) and of K shares EUR 12.11 (9.90).
The market value of the Corporation's share capital increased by 26% during 2006 and
was EUR 947 million at the end of the year (750).


THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS' PROPOSAL FOR THE ANNUAL GENERAL
MEETING

According to the consolidated balance sheet on December 31, 2005, the distributable
equity amounts to 287,874,854.39  euro, of which 60,258,394.35  euro is profit from the
fiscal year.

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting of the shareholders
convening on March 21, 2007, that a dividend of 0.60 euro per outstanding share of
Series A and 0.58 euro per outstanding share of Series K be paid. Thus the dividend
distribution would be:
on 54,816,980 A shares, 0.60 euro per share, totaling	32,890,188.00euro
on 22,565,288 K shares, 0.58 euro per share, totaling	13,087,867.04 euro
Total dividend distribution				45,978,055.04 euro
Unused distributable funds of 241,896,799.35 euro remain in shareholders' equity.

Since the end of the 2006 fiscal year, no significant changes have occurred in the
Corporation's financial position. The Corporation's liquidity is strong and the proposed
distribution of equity does not in the Board's view endanger corporate liquidity.


OUTLOOK
The net sales and operating profit from Fiskars wholly-owned operations is expected to
be on last year's levels during the first few months of the year. Net sales will increase
slightly for the whole year and the result is expected to top the result for 2006 from the
spring onwards.
Once again, the associated company Wärtsilä forms an important part of the
Corporation's profit.
