Restructuring provisions are primarily related to the cooperation negotiations conducted during 2009–2011 and 2013. A significant portion of the long-term personnel expense provisions in the Group's Finnish companies is made up of the employer's liability component within the unemployment insurance contribution towards the Unemployment Insurance Fund. Approximately 50% is expected to be realized during 2014, and another 50% in 2015–2016.
