Judgements passed today by Helsinki Court of Appeal dismiss all claims for damages in connection with the discontinued tobacco business of Amer Sports Corporation. The Court of Appeal also ordered the claimants to reimburse Amer Sports Corporation for all legal costs, as claimed by the company. The Court of Appeal did not amend the judgements passed in the matter by Helsinki District Court in 2008, where all claims made by the claimants had also been dismissed.

The judgements passed by the Court of Appeal concerned claims for damages brought by two private individuals in spring 2005, whereby they claimed damages and legal costs jointly and severally from Amer Sports Corporation and its subsidiary Amerintie 1 Oy (previously Amer-Tupakka Oy) and another tobacco manufacturer.

Amer Sports Corporation divested the tobacco business in March 2004.
