Overview
In the first nine months of the year uncertainty and customer
cautiousness characterized the demand for consumer packaging.
Although majority of the Group's segments are considered to be of a
defensive nature with mainly food and personal care related packaging
products, the Group net sales were not immune to the economic
downturn and declined during the reporting period. Additionally, the
divested units and discontinued operations had a negative impact on
sales.

Operating earnings for the reporting period continued well above the
corresponding period in 2008. In spite of lower sales, earnings
improved due to price and mix management as well as successful cost
containment. Profitability improved markedly in Rigid Consumer Goods
Plastics and North America segments. The earnings improvement
together with lower net financial items resulted in earnings per
share (EPS) more than doubling during the reporting period.

At EUR 167 million, free cash flow improved by EUR 100 million
compared to the previous year. Cash flow generation was good in all
segments, especially in Flexibles Global. Net debt reduced strongly.

During the reporting period the rigid plastic consumer goods
businesses in South America and in South Africa as well as the
expanded polystyrene packaging business in Australia were divested.
The strategic review of the remaining rigid plastic consumer goods
operations in Europe and Australia is ongoing.

Business review by segment
The current segment structure for financial reporting was adopted as
of January 1, 2009. The sales distribution by segment is the
following: Flexibles Global 22% (unchanged against same period in
2008), Films Global 8% (9%), North America 26% (22%), Rough Molded
Fiber Global 10% (9%), Foodservice Europe-Asia-Oceania 21%
(unchanged) and Rigid Consumer Goods Plastics 13% (17%).

Flexibles Global
Flexibles business is organized as a global segment. Flexibles are
used for consumer packaging of a wide range and variety of food,
personal and health care and other products.


EUR million        Q1-Q3 2009 Q1-Q3 2008 Q3 2009 Q3 2008
Net sales               354.1      380.5   114.8   125.3

EBIT margin %             6.0        4.1     6.6     3.1
RONA % (12m roll.)        1.4        3.7       -       -


In Europe sales recovery visible in the second quarter did not carry
on to the third quarter. In Asia-Oceania sales development continued
subdued due to soft and competitive market conditions. The
discontinued operations in North America had a negative impact on
sales.

Improved profitability reflects cost containment as well as
elimination of loss-making operations.

Films Global
Films business is organized as a global segment. Films are mainly
used for technical applications in the label, adhesive tape, hygiene
and health care industries, as well as building and construction,
automotive, packaging and graphic arts industries.


EUR million        Q1-Q3 2009 Q1-Q3 2008 Q3 2009 Q3 2008
Net sales               121.6      158.8    41.3    52.3

RONA % (12m roll.)       -1.0        5.9       -       -

* EBIT includes non-recurring charges of EUR 3.8 million in Q2 2009.

Sales within the segment suffered from weak demand of industrial
applications during the reporting period. The consumer related
products were more resilient to the economic downturn. In the third
quarter some recovery of orders was experienced.

Profitability reflects significant volume shortfall partially offset
by cost reduction efforts and better operational control.

The divestment of the release paper business and further focus on
release films in Forchheim, Germany, is expected to be completed by
the end of the first quarter 2010.

North America
The segment includes the Rigid and Molded Fiber business in North
America and Mexico. Rigid paper and plastic packaging, which serves
ice-cream and other consumer goods as well as foodservice markets, is
completed with Molded Fiber Chinet® disposable tableware products.


EUR million        Q1-Q3 2009 Q1-Q3 2008 Q3 2009 Q3 2008

RONA % (12m roll.)       14.3        7.9       -       -


Sales within the segment grew during the reporting period. However,
in constant currencies sales were below the level of the
corresponding period in 2008. In the third quarter sales were at
previous year's level in Frozen desserts and Retail, while declining
in Foodservice due to soft market conditions and product portfolio
optimization.

The improvement in profitability reflects strong market positions,
successful mix management and cost containment. In the third quarter
favorable currency translation impact diminished and raw material
costs increased.

The closure of the rigid plastics site in Phoenix, USA, was completed
in the third quarter 2009.

Rough Molded Fiber Global
The segment includes the Rough Molded Fiber business in Europe,
Oceania, Africa and South America. Rough molded fiber is used to make

In constant currencies sales growth was achieved in packaging
operations, i.e. excluding machine and waste paper trade businesses.
In the third quarter sales for egg packaging accelerated especially
in Europe and Africa.

The improvement in profitability reflects favorable sales development
and cost containment.

During the third quarter the production unit in Roodekoop, South
Africa, was sold to Polyoak Packaging (Pty) Ltd. The divested unit
made injection molded plastic packaging, had annual net sales of
approximately EUR 5 million and employed some 55 people. All South
African units are reported under Rough Molded Fiber Global segment.

Foodservice Europe-Asia-Oceania
Foodservice paper and plastic disposable tableware is supplied to
foodservice operators and fast food restaurants.

Overall sales within the segment declined during the reporting
period. In Oceania sales continued on a good level with robust growth
recorded in the third quarter.

Profitability reflects cost containment, successful price and mix
management as well as improved performance in Asia-Oceania.

The closure of the site in Balakong, Malaysia, was completed in the
third quarter 2009.

Rigid Consumer Goods Plastics
The segment includes the Rigid Consumer Goods Plastics business in
Europe and Oceania. Rigid plastic packaging serves the consumer goods
markets with fresh food, dairy, ice cream and edible fats packaging.

* EBIT includes non-recurring charges of EUR 6.8 million in Q2 2008
and EUR 0.1 million in Q3 2008.

Sales within the segment declined during the reporting period. The
divested units and discontinued operations had a negative impact on
sales.

Clear improvement in profitability reflects better operational
control and cost containment partially offset by increased pressure
on margins.

The strategic review of the remaining rigid plastic consumer goods
operations in Europe and Australia is ongoing.


Financial review
The Group EBIT for the reporting period was EUR 113 million (EUR 73
million), corresponding to an EBIT margin of 7.2% (4.3%). Excluding
non-recurring charges of EUR 4 million (EUR 7 million), the Group
EBIT for the reporting period was EUR 117 million (EUR 80 million),
corresponding to an EBIT margin of 7.4% (4.6%). In the third quarter,
the Group EBIT was EUR 39 million (EUR 26 million), corresponding to
an EBIT margin of 7.6% (4.5%).

The net financial items for the reporting period were EUR -21 million
(EUR -34 million) and for the third quarter EUR -6 million (EUR -14
million). Tax expense for the period was EUR 18 million (EUR 7
million) and for the third quarter EUR 7 million (EUR 2 million).

The result for the period was EUR 74 million (EUR 33 million) and EPS
attributable to equity holders of the parent company were EUR 0.65
(EUR 0.31). Correspondingly in the third quarter these were EUR 27
million (EUR 10 million) and EUR 0.23 (EUR 0.10). The average number
of outstanding shares used in the EPS calculations was 100,426,461
(unchanged) excluding 5,061,089 (unchanged) of the Company's own
shares.

Balance sheet and cash flow
Free cash flow for the reporting period was EUR 167 million (EUR 67
million), with the third quarter amounting to EUR 65 million (EUR -6
million). The improvement was due to prudent working capital
management, higher earnings and lower capital expenditure. While all
segments contributed with good cash flow generation, Flexibles Global
continued as most successful. Capital expenditure was EUR 32 million
(EUR 48 million), with the third quarter spending at EUR 14 million
(EUR 16 million).

Net debt was EUR 424 million (EUR 723 million) at the end of
September 2009. This corresponds to a gearing ratio of 0.58 (0.93).
Total assets on the balance sheet were EUR 1,837 million (EUR 2,197
million).


Personnel
The Group had 13,346 (14,794) employees at the end of September 2009.


Short-term risks and uncertainties
Volatile raw material and energy prices as well as movements in
currency translations are considered to be relevant short-term
business risks and uncertainties in the Group's operations. Material
changes in general economic conditions or in the financial markets
could have an adverse effect on the implementation of the Group's
strategy and on its business performance and earnings.


Outlook for 2009
Sales outlook for the remainder of 2009 remains uncertain, the
underlying earnings improvement is expected to continue.

Price and mix management, supply chain initiatives, control over
costs and capital spending, positive cash flow generation and net
debt reduction continue as key focus areas within the Group. Capital
expenditure in 2009 is expected to be clearly below EUR 100 million.

NOTES FOR THE INTERIM REPORT

Except for accounting policy changes listed below, the same
accounting policies have been applied in the interim financial
statements as in annual financial statements for 2008.

Changes in accounting principles

The Group has adopted the following IFRS standards and
interpretations considered applicable to Huhtamaki, with effect from
January 1, 2009:

- IAS 23 Borrowing cost. The amendment requires capitalization of
borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition,
construction or production of a qualifying asset as part of the cost
of asset.
- IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements -amendment. Amended
standard has changed the presentation of income statement and
statement of changes in shareholders' equity.
- IFRIC 13 Customer Loyalty Programmes. The interpretation addresses
the accounting by entities that operate customer loyalty programmes
with their customers.

These newly adopted standards have not had impact on the reported
results.

Segments

Segment information is presented according to the IFRS standards.
Items below EBIT - financial items and taxes - are not allocated to
