Nordea Pankki Suomi Oyj owns now 1,909,483 SRV Group Plc’s shares, and its portion of ownership of shares and voting rights in SRV Group Plc is 5.19%, i.e. has exceeded 1/20.

Moreover, Nordea Pankki Suomi Oyj has sold to Nordea Bank AB (publ) forward contracts concerning the shares (1,909,483 shares), which will mature on 15. April 2011.
