Wilh. Wilhelmsen ASA

CORRECTION: Wilh. Wilhelmsen fourth quarter and...

This is a correction of the announcement from 07:52 11.02.2010 CET. Reason for
the correction:

(Lysaker, 11 February 2010) On the road to recovery

The  Wilh. Wilhelmsen group posted an  operating profit of USD 240.8 million for
2009, compared  with USD  351.6 million in  2008 (figures for  the corresponding
period  hereafter  in  brackets).  Total  income  amounted  to  USD 2 572.6 (USD
3 434.2 million).

"2009  was an extra-ordinary year, especially in our shipping segment," comments
Ingar  Skaug,  group  CEO  at  Wilh.  Wilhelmsen.  "While EUKOR Car Carriers and
American  Roll-on Roll-off Carrier delivered solid results, Wallenius Wilhelmsen
Logistics  (WWL)  experienced  a  substantial  drop  in volumes and unfavourable
changes in cargo composition and trades."

"However,  the last two  quarters of 2009 showed  signs of recovery," says Skaug
when  commenting on figures for the fourth quarter. The operating profit for the
group  in the fourth  quarter totalled USD  78.3 million (USD 134.0 million) and
the  total income was  USD 727.7 million (USD  853.4 million), up from USD 47.8
million and USD 604.9 million respectively in the third quarter.

"The  improvement in demand for ocean transportation in WWL is still weaker than
we  would like to see, but we have taken three vessels out of layup and see this
as a sign of the market gradually picking up. We experienced a continued rebound
in cargo volumes, primarily cars, equivalent with a 25% increase in cubic metres
from the third to the fourth quarter," says Skaug.

Results  from the logistics segment was hit  by the slide in cargo flows handled
by WWL, but partly offset by strong performance of other logistics activities in
the group.

The  group's maritime  services segment  has a  strong market  position securing
stable sales volumes of consumables and service to the merchant fleet. "We see a
decline  in deliveries  to newbuilds  at yards  and deferrals  in the repair and
retrofit  market, but the  merchant fleet activity  level is still very strong,"
says Skaug.

Summing  up  the  year  and  looking  into  2010, Skaug  says:  "We  have  had a
challenging  year, but  the signals  from the  markets are  now positive. With a
flexible  business model and  a diversified portfolio  we are certain that 2010
will bring several interesting opportunities."

The board proposes a payment of NOK 2 per share in the second quarter of 2010.

For  2010, the WW ASA board  expects all operating companies  in the WW group to
perform  in  line  with  or  better  than  2009. WWL  has a significant recovery
