EVERGREEN FORESTS LIMITED RESULTS REFLECT FOREST VALUATION REDUCTION

Evergreen Forests Limited announced today an unaudited after tax loss of $8.341m (2003 loss $13.151m) for the half year to 31st December 2004. The previously announced valuation write-down of its forests accounted for $14.590m (after tax $9.775m).

Chairman Peter Wilson said there had been no relief from the impacts of strong currency and high shipping costs.

Mr Wilson also said that the review of the asset sale and recapitalisation options available to the company, being conducted by Forsyth Barr Investment Banking, was progressing well, and that the Board expected to be communicating with shareholders in due course.
