SSAB has noted that information regarding the third quarter report leaked out before it had been made public. The company has therefore established an internal inquiry to investigate how the leak could have happened.

- ”We view what has happened extremely seriously. It is not acceptable that this sort of thing should occur,” says Helena Stålnert, Information Director at SSAB.

- ”If it proves to be the case that there are deficiencies in our system and routines, we will take all necessary measures to ensure that our information is released in a correct manner in the future.”

SSAB has maintained regular contact in the matter with the Stock Exchange’s monitoring unit.
