Matti Hyytiäinen, President and CEO of Etteplan Oyj, comments on the interim    
report as follows:                                                              

”Decline in demand for design services ceased in the end of the third quarter of
the year and stabilized on lower than usual level.                              

Our customers have reorganized their operations to ensure profitable business   
preconditions in the current market situation. For Etteplan this meant increased
market share as customers concentrated their design services procurement.       

During the third quarter we signed a number of new contracts in which the work  
will be done in our Chinese units. With this operating model we offer our       
customers significant cost savings in technical design and product information. 
                                                                                
During the period under review, a number of customers commenced preparatory     
measures to start new product development projects. Among medical technology    
equipment manufacturers' new product development projects commenced and it      
showed as an increase in the number of assignments. During the third quarter of 
the year tender activity in our delivery design services was more active        
compared to the beginning of the year.                                          

Measures, which we commenced during the spring, to adjust design capacity to the
current market situation as well as lightening of cost structure continued      
successfully. These development measures will be concluded during the last      
quarter of the year, and as a result of these measures our service ability and  
competitiveness will further improve. These measures will also positively affect
our current financial position.”

Incentive plan for key personnel                                                

The Etteplan Oyj Board of Directors decided on a share-based incentive plan for 
key personnel in March 2008. The plan includes three earnings periods: calendar 
years 2008, 2009 and 2010. The plan had a target group of 37 people in 2008. The
remuneration paid from the plan corresponds to the value of about 720,000       
Etteplan Oyj shares at maximum.                                                 

The Board of Directors of Etteplan Oyj has in its meeting held on February 11,  
2009 made a resolution upon disposal of company-held shares pursuant to the     
authorization granted to it by the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders' held 
on March 28, 2008. The authorization was renewed in the Annual General Meeting  
on March 26, 2009.                                                              

In accordance with the decision by the Board of Directors, Etteplan Oyj has, on 
April 30, 2009, disposed 41,177 company-held shares as the remuneration for the 
2008 earnings period for 36 employees who were part of share-based incentive    
plan in 2008. The price per share of the transferred shares was EUR 2.89, which 
was the volume weighted average quotation of Etteplan Oyj share on April 30,    
2009. Accordingly, the total transaction price of the transferred shares was EUR
119,001.53. In addition, a monetary part and capital transfer tax, totalling at 
EUR 180,723.97, were paid out of the plan. The remuneration earned in 2008 was  
paid on April 30, 2009.                                                         

Estimate of operating risks and uncertainty factors                             

Etteplan's financial results are exposed to number of strategic, operational and
financial risks. A detailed risk analysis can be found in Etteplan's annual     
report 2008.                                                                    

External risks                                                                  

During the period under review, economic development on the whole and           
unpredictable changes in customers' order books continued to be a significant   
risk. The customer related risks will continue to pose an increased risk for    
Etteplan's operations.                                                          

Internal risks                                                                  

Internally Etteplan does not foresee changes in its risk position compared to   
previously stated.                                                              

In addition to the write-down done during the review period, the current        
impairment test shows no reason for goodwill write-down.

General

The Etteplan Oyj Board of Directors approved the interim report for publication 
at its meeting of October 28, 2009.                                             

Basis for preparation                                                           

The interim report has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 (Interim         
Financial Reporting) and the preparation and accounting policies presented in   
the 2008 annual financial statements, but not all requirements of the IAS 34    
standard for interim financial reporting have been followed in the accounting.  
Revised IAS 1, Presentation of Financial Statements: Amendments have been made  
to the presentation of the income statement and statement of changes in equity. 

Monetary figures in the interim report are presented in thousands of euros. All 
figures in the tables have been rounded up or down, due to which the sums of    
figures may deviate from the sum totals presented.                              

In interim report the accounting principles used were the same as for the 2008  
annual financial statements. The annual financial statements are available at
