previously owned by Progift Oy. For the financial year ended on 31 December
2007, Ibero Liikelahjat Oy, a company selling and marketing business and
advertising gifts, posted net sales of EUR 3.3 million, an operating profit of
EUR 0.5 million and a net profit of EUR 0.4 million. The company’s balance sheet

million. The company’s showroom, operating facilities and warehouse are located
in Pitäjänmäki, Helsinki. Ibero Liikelahjat Oy employs 12 people, five of which
are sales professionals.

The basic acquisition price of the acquired shares is EUR 700,000 and 100,000
shares of Wulff-Group. A targeted new issue of shares to the seller party will
be realised during 2008. The new shares will have a so-called lock-up condition

an independent unit in its own business premises. Tanu Rautio will continue as
the Managing Director of Ibero Liikelahjat Oy.

Wulff-Group’s CEO Heikki Vienola: ”Ibero is a strong and well-known brand in
Finland. The acquisition will strengthen our business and advertising gift sales
and our position in the corporate promotional products market. I believe that
together with Ibero’s 12 experts we will form the top Finnish team in the
business. I feel that corporate image products are a strongly growing business
area in which it is profitable for us to invest. Customising products for the
businesses’ internal and external use increases constantly. Business gifts are
considered nowadays as a part of overall communication and their utilization in
the companies is growing. Ibero has a functional concept and a solid foothold
especially in the Helsinki metro area. The acquisition will have a positive
impact on the Wulff Group’s earnings per share already in 2008.”

Wulff-Group Plc is an office products market leader in Finland. It sells and
markets office supplies, computer accessories, corporate image products,
ergonomic products, and trade fair and event marketing services. Wulff’s
long-term objective is to become also the Nordic market leader in its sector.
The Group has more than 70,000 customers and more than 400 employees, of which
nearly 70% are sales personnel. Wulff-Group recorded in 2007 net sales of EUR
74.1 million, operating profit of EUR 5.4 million, and net profit of EUR 3.0
million. The completed acquisition of Ibero Liikelahjat Oy is part of Wulff’s
growth strategy, a key part of which are corporate acquisitions.
