Jun 07, 2010, 11:29 ET from Hadera Paper Ltd

HADERA, Israel, June 7, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hadera Paper Ltd. (AMEX: AIP) announced that a petition was filed against Hogla-Kimberly LTD (H-K), an affiliated company (49.9%) and against another competitor company (the "Competitor"), for the approval of a class action.

According to the petition, the Competitor and H-K has misled the public by presenting plastic bags as oxo biodegradable and therefore environmentally friendly, while the products are breaking down into fragments.

The plaintiff estimates the scope of the petition, if approved as class action, to be approximately NIS 111 million. At this early stage H-K is examining the petition and is not able to assess its chances and its influences.
