Strategy and plans for future - In the future conditions of economic macro environment will have a substantial influence on the Company results mainly the general state of Polish and European economy affecting directly the sales of company products.

Although, there are some positive trends on the market they will not have pronounced effect on company activities because of its dependency on EURO exchange rate and monopolistic prices of forest raw material.

Because of sales dependency on exchange ratios the Company will flexibly react by increasing and decreasing export sales.

In the field of development the Company will continue to change its production structure from simple wood processing to further wood processing, broadening the products offer and specialization of individual plants.

Under suitable conditions the Company intends to modernize the sawmilling production lines in softwood and hardwood plants and increasing the production of hardwood glued boards, in following years, starting from 2007.
