Rainbow Quiz - Identify the personality - Week 53

Here is the next weekly "Rainbow" quiz , where I would be giving 7 clues (Hence the name Rainbow) about a personality/business. Try to discover the person/company in the least number of clues . You can either leave the answer as a comment / email me . Feedback/ suggestions welcome. Googling is not preferred but then its just for fun and so go ahead if you need to.

Rainbow quiz completed a year last week. So thought of doing something different. This week's quiz is on a Company rather than a personality. "X" is a household name across the globe. Should be easy to guess.

clue # 1 : This company was established in 1865 as a wood-pulp mill .

clue # 2 : The company got its name from a River & town ( that still exists today) to where it relocated its business.

clue # 3 : "X" plays a very large role in the economy of its country of origin.It accounts for about a third of the market capitalization of the domestic Stock Exchange .

clue # 4 : In 2006, "X" generated revenues that for the first time exceeded the national budget of its country of origin.

clue # 5 : In 2006, "X" and Siemens AG announced the merger of their network equipment businesses to create one of the world's largest network firms.

clue # 6 : "X" is listed as the 5th most valuable global brand in BusinessWeek's Best Global Brands list of 2007 (1st non-US company).

clue # 7 : It is the 20th most admirable company worldwide in Fortune's World's Most Admired Companies list of 2007 and is a Fortune 500 company .
