*) Comparable operating profit represents the underlying business performance by
excluding items affecting comparability. These are mainly caused by the
accounting effects from fair valuation of financial derivatives for future cash
flows where hedge accounting is not applied (IAS 39) or non-recurring items.

**) Total earnings per share in 2004 included a EUR 0.05 positive one-time
effect from a change in the Finnish tax rate from 29% to 26%.

2005 was an outstanding year for Fortum. Both the company’s operating results
and cash flow from operating activities improved. The key financial targets,
ROCE and ROE 12%, were exceeded. The balance sheet was further strengthened as
net debt decreased by EUR 1,937 million compared to year-end 2004, and Fortum’s
gearing stood at 43% at the year end. Net cash from operating activities
(continuing operations) increased to EUR 1,271 (1,232) million.

The comparable operating profits of all segments were higher than in 2004. The
Power Generation, Heat and Markets segments delivered substantially better
comparable operating profits. In Power Generation, the good results were mainly
due to successful hedging and improvement in spot prices. Heat segment was able
to improve its performance mainly due to improved cost efficiency through
improved fuel mix in Värme.

The achieved Nordic Generation power price was EUR 31.2 (29.2), up by 7% from
2004. The average spot price of electricity in Nord Pool, the Nordic power
exchange, was EUR 29.3 (28.9) per megawatt-hour (MWh), which was approximately
1% higher than in 2004.

The separation of the oil businesses and listing of Neste Oil was executed
successfully through a share dividend and a sale of shares in April 2005.

During 2005, Fortum strengthened its position in the Russian electricity
company, OAO Lenenergo and consequently increased its indirect ownership in the
regional power generation company of north-west Russia, Territorial Generation
Company 1 (TGC-1). As part of the major Russian power market reform, the
generation assets of Kolenergo, Lenenergo and Karelenergo are to be merged to
TGC-1. In November, Fortum agreed to acquire 24.83% of the shares in Kolenergo.

Fortum continued to expand its district heating business in Poland. In October,
Fortum signed an agreement to purchase the majority shareholding of MPEC
Wroclaw, the district heating company of the city of Wroclaw in Poland. In
December, Fortum acquired the majority shareholding of the district heating
company of the city of Plock.


Net sales and results

October-December

Group net sales stood at EUR 1,112 (EUR 1,084 million in October-December 2004)
million.

Group operating profit totalled EUR 474 (363) million. Comparable operating
profit increased by EUR 111 million to EUR 460 (349) million.

During the fourth quarter, the average price of electricity in Nord Pool was EUR
32.3 (27.6) per megawatt-hour, or 17% higher than during the corresponding
period in 2004. In Continental Europe, the spot price for electricity has been
higher than in Nord Pool, resulting in exports from the Nordic countries to
Germany.

The comparable operating profit of the Power Generation segment was higher than
last year, mainly due to Fortum's higher achieved Nordic Generation power price,
which increased by 10% to EUR 33.0 (30.1) per megawatt-hour.

The comparable operating profit of the Heat segment was better than last year.
This was mainly due to increased sales to business customers and better fuel mix
due to increased production with waste and bio-fuels.

The Distribution segment's result improvement in the fourth quarter is explained
mainly by a generally lower cost level thanks to efficiency improvements in the
business and by lower grid loss costs.
The Markets segment's operating profit increased from last year. This was mostly
due to increased sales and new product launches. Also costs related to
improvements in the quality of customer service were at a lower level than last
year.

The net amount of non-recurring items was EUR 10 (29) million, mainly consisting
of the gain from the sale of some building rights, reported in the Other
segment. The net amount of other items effecting comparability was EUR 4 (-15)
million, mainly consisting of accounting effects from IAS 39.

January-December

Group net sales stood at EUR 3,877 million (EUR 3,835 million in 2004). Higher
wholesale prices of electricity had a positive impact, whereas lower power
generation volumes decreased the net sales.

Group reported operating profit totalled EUR 1,347 (1,195) million. The
comparable operating profit stood at EUR 1,334 (1,148) million, an increase of
EUR 186 million over the 2004 figures.

The net amount of non-recurring items was EUR 30 (18) million, mainly consisting
of the gains from the sale of North Transgas Oy and some building rights. The
net amount of other items effecting comparability was EUR -17 (29) million,
mainly consisting of accounting effects from IAS 39.

In January-December, the average Nord Pool spot price was EUR 29.3 (28.9) per
megawatt-hour, or 1% higher than during in 2004.

The comparable operating profit of the Power Generation segment was higher,
mainly due to Fortum's 7% higher achieved Nordic Generation power price of EUR
31.2 (29.2) per megawatt-hour. The positive profit impact from the increased
amount of hydropower generation was offset by a lower amount of thermal power
generation. The low thermal power generation was caused by high CO2 -prices,
high coal and gas prices and good hydrological situation. However, Fortum
maintained the full readiness of its condensing power capacity throughout the
year.

The lost sales margin due to lower thermal generation was partly compensated by
the sale of CO2 emission allowances. The Power Generation segment's full year
comparable operating profit includes approximately EUR 25 million positive
impact from the sale of CO2 emission allowances. The gain on the sale of CO2 -
allowances was booked in the fourth quarter.

Reported operating profit of the Power Generation segment was also higher than
last year. The difference in reported and comparable operating profit was mainly
due to the accounting effects from IAS 39.

The Heat segment's net sales were higher than last year, mainly due to the
acquisitions in Poland. The Heat segment's power sales volume was lower than
last year, mainly due to the pulp and paper industry strike and lock-out in
Finland. Replacement of fossil fuels with bio-fuels and waste, and increased
sales to business customers, increased the comparable operating profit of the
Heat segment. The gain on the sale of the 50% stake in North Transgas Oy lifted
the reported operating profit for the segment.

The Distribution segment's net sales were at the same level as last year. The
segment's comparable operating profit was slightly higher than last year,
despite the EUR 11 million costs from the January storms in Sweden and Norway,
which were booked in the first-quarter earnings. The improvement in comparable
operating profit is explained mainly by the generally lower cost level thanks to
efficiency improvements in the business.

The Markets segment's net sales were slightly lower in 2005 than in 2004, mainly
due to the termination of some large long-term contracts at the end of 2004.
Markets has been able to slightly increase its total sales margin, due to
successful launches of new products and successful procurement of electricity
from Nord Pool. Markets' operations in Norway improved from last year. The
segment's operating profit for the full year 2005 was still affected by the
somewhat higher fixed cost base originating from actions to improve customer
service quality.

Profit before taxes was EUR 1,267 (962) million.

The Group's net financial expenses from continuing operations amounted to EUR
135 (245) million. The decrease in net financial expenses is mainly attributable
to lower net debt following the spin-off of the Oil businesses and positive
changes in the fair values of outstanding derivatives contracts. Net financial
expenses include a positive change of EUR 40 (-6) million in the fair values of
derivatives in accordance with IAS 39.
Net financial expenses in 2005 includes a one-time cost of EUR 15 million, due
to early prepayment of US private placements bonds originally issued in 1991 and
1992.. In 2004 the cost for a similar debt restructuring was EUR 10 million.

The share of profit of associates and joint ventures from continuing operations
was EUR 55 (12) million. The improvement is mainly explained by Hafslund's
increased effect.

Minority interests accounted for EUR 52 (33) million. The minority interests are
mostly attributable to Fortum Värme Holding, in which the City of Stockholm has
a 50% economic interest.

Taxes for the period totalled EUR 331 (259) million. The tax rate according to
the income statement was 26% (27%). In 2004, taxes for the period included a
decrease in deferred tax liabilities of EUR 43 million due to the change in the
Finnish corporate income tax rate from 29% to 26%. EUR 27 million of the
decrease in deferred tax liabilities relates to continuing operations

Total net profit for the period was EUR 1,410 (1,292) million. The net profit
from continuing operations was EUR 936 (703) million. Total Fortum earnings per
share were EUR 1.55 (1.48), and earnings per share from continuing operations
were EUR 1.01 (0.79). In 2004, total earnings per share included a positive
effect of EUR 0.05 from the corporate tax rate change in Finland. Return on
capital employed from continuing operations was 13.5% (11.4%) and return on
shareholders' equity was 18.7% (18.2%).


Market conditions

According to preliminary statistics, the Nordic countries consumed 391 (387)
terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity in 2005. This is 1% more than in 2004.

During the fourth quarter, the average spot price of electricity in Nord Pool
was EUR 32.3 (27.6) per megawatt-hour or 17% higher than during the
corresponding period in 2004. The corresponding price increase in electricity
sold by Fortum was 10%.

During 2005, the average spot price of electricity in Nord Pool was EUR 29.3
(28.9) per megawatt-hour (MWh), which was approximately 1% higher than in 2004.
The average monthly spot price varied from EUR 23 per megawatt-hour in January
to EUR 34 per megawatt-hour in December.

Starting in 2005, emissions trading has become an important new factor affecting
the wholesale price of electricity. The market price for CO2 emissions
allowances increased from around EUR 7 per tonne at the beginning of the year to
nearly EUR 30 per tonne by mid-July. Since mid-July, the price has remained at a
rather stable level of EUR 20-24 per tonne. At the end of the year, prices were
at the level of EUR 21-23 per tonne.

The emergence of the market for CO2 emissions allowances and a strengthening
hydrological situation have decreased thermal power generation and increased
hydro power generation in the Nordic countries compared to last year. Despite
the high Nordic hydro production, the Nordic water reservoirs have recovered
during the year. At the end of 2005, the Nordic water reservoirs were 7 TWh
above the average and 5 TWh above the corresponding level in 2004.

In Continental Europe, the spot price of electricity has been clearly higher
than in Nord Pool, resulting in exports from the Nordic countries to Germany.

Total power and heat generation figures

Fortum's total power generation during 2005 was 52.3 (55.5) TWh, of which 51.2
(54.4) TWh was in the Nordic countries. Fortum's Nordic generation is 13% (14%)
of the total Nordic electricity consumption.

At year end, Fortum's total power generating capacity was 11,281 (11,373) MW, of
which 11,136 (11,220) MW was in the Nordic countries.

During the past six years, the volume of Fortum’s CO2-free power generation has
increased from 29 TWh to 49 TWh. Its share was 93% (83%) of Fortum's power
generation in 2005.

The segment's power generation during the fourth quarter amounted to 12.8 (14.1)
TWh in the Nordic countries.

In 2005, the segment's power generation in the Nordic countries was 47.2 (49.8)
TWh, of which about 21.2 (19.1) TWh or 45% (38%) was hydropower-based, 25.8
(25.8) TWh or 55% (52%) nuclear power-based, and 0.2 (4.9) TWh or 0% (10%)
thermal power-based. The increase in hydro power generation was due to a
strengthened hydrological situation compared to the corresponding period last
year. The decrease in thermal power generation was due to lower power prices
during the first quarter and high fuel and CO2 allowance prices.

At year end, the segment’s power generation capacity totalled 10,003 (10,030)
MW, of which 9,863 (9,890) MW was in the Nordic countries and 140 (140) MW in
other countries.

*) For the Power Generation segment in the Nordic area, excluding pass-through
sales.

Fortum's average achieved Nordic Generation power price (excluding pass-through
items) in the fourth quarter was 10% higher than a year ago, mainly due to
improved hedging prices. In the fourth quarter, the average spot price of power
in Nord Pool was 17% higher than a year ago. During 2005, Fortum's achieved
Nordic Generation power price was 7% higher, the average spot price in Nord Pool
being 1% higher than in 2004. The related sales volume was 13.1 (14.4) TWh in
the fourth quarter and 48.1 (51.0) TWh for the year 2005.

During 2005, Fortum made small capacity increases both in hydro and nuclear
power generation according to its investment plan. Four hydropower plant
refurbishment projects were completed during the year.

Fortum began modernising Loviisa nuclear power plant automation in January 2005.
The project aims at extending the lifetime of the plant. All of the new
automation systems related to this project will be in use by 2014.

Fortum has strengthened its position in Russia. The regional power generation
company of north-west Russia, Territorial Generation Company 1 (TGC-1), started
its operations on the first of October. Fortum is an indirect owner of this
company through its 33.2% ownership of the outstanding voting shares in
Lenenergo. Fortum has three of the total 11 seats on the Board of Directors of
TGC-1. The final ownership structure of TGC-1 will be set up in connection with
the merger of the generation assets of Lenenergo, Karelenergo and Kolenergo into
TGC-1, scheduled for the end of 2006.

Fortum has made an agreement with the Russian companies RAO UES of Russia and
Kes-holding (IES, Integrated Energy Systems), aiming at developing a joint
operating model for improving the competitiveness of the territorial generation
companies. Additionally, Fortum signed a co-operation agreement with Interros, a
leading Russian investment company, concerning future expertise as well as
operation and maintenance services of the wholesale power companies acquired by
Interros.

In August, Fortum Service signed a 15-year operation and maintenance agreement
with Trianel Energie of Germany. The agreement covers the 800-MW combined cycle
gas turbine power plant in Hamm-Uentrop, Germany, which will be ready for
commercial use in September 2007.


Heat

The business area comprises heat generation and sales in the Nordic countries
and other parts of the Baltic Rim. Fortum is a leading heat producer in the
region. The segment also generates power in the combined heat and power plants
(CHP) and sells it to end-customers mainly by long-term contracts, as well as to
Nord Pool. The segment includes the Heat and Värme business units.

The segment’s heat sales during the fourth quarter amounted to 6.6 (6.9) TWh and
to 21.7 (21.8) TWh during the whole year. This shows the significance of the
first and last quarters of the year to the heat business.

Power generation at combined heat and power plants (CHP) was 1.3 (1.5) TWh
during the fourth quarter and 4.1 (4.8) TWh during 2005. The decrease was due to
the strike and lock-out in the Finnish paper industry during spring and summer
and also due to the lower thermal generation volumes stemming from higher fuel
and CO2 allowance prices.

In April, Fortum acquired UAB Suomijos Energija, a Lithuanian district heat
company with annual heat sales of 60 GWh and fuel sales 62 GWh. In May, Fortum
continued the restructuring of its gas assets and sold its 50% stake in North
Transgas Oy to OAO Gazprom.

In the fourth quarter, Fortum acquired two new district heating companies in
Poland. In October, Fortum signed an agreement to purchase the majority
shareholding of MPEC Wroclaw, the district heating company of the city of
Wroclaw with annual net sales of EUR 70 million and heat sales of 2,100 GWh. In
November, Fortum signed an acquisition agreement regarding the majority of the
district heating company of the city of Plock. The annual net sales of the
company are around EUR 13 million, with heat sales amounting to 500 GWh.
Following the acquisitions, Fortum is a majority owner in four heating companies
in Poland with aggregate net sales of close to EUR 130 million and annual heat
sales of 3,900 GWh.

The new waste fuel-based combined heat and power plant in Högdalen, Stockholm,
was inaugurated in October 2005.

During the fourth quarter, the volume of distribution and regional transmissions
totalled 6.6 (6.3) TWh and 5.0 (4.5) TWh, respectively.

For the whole year, the volumes of distribution and regional network
transmissions totalled 23.1 (22.7) TWh and 18.0 (17.8) TWh, respectively.
Electricity transmissions via the regional distribution network to customers
outside the Group totalled 14.8 (14.6) TWh in Sweden and 3.2 (3.2) TWh in
Finland.

The Energy Authority (EMI) in Sweden has performed supervision of 2003 year's
net prices on basis of the Nätnyttomodell. The authority notified 16 companies
in June and two companies in December of over debiting. All of these companies
have filed a complaint.

Fortum has three grid areas that are affected by the supervision of 2003 net
prices. A minor subsidiary of Fortum (Ekerö Energi) received a decision of over
debiting in 2003 and filed a complaint. Decisions on two other Fortum areas are
expected during the first quarter of 2006. Final court decisions on prices in
2003 are expected at during the third quarter of 2007, at the earliest.

In November, EMI published information on those companies that will be
supervised more closely for their 2004 net prices. Based on EMI's decision on
supervision, five Fortum areas exceeded the stipulated charge rate limit.
However, Fortum believes that the charge rate calculation concerning two of its
areas is not in compliance with EMI's own instructions. Fortum has applied for
withdrawal of the supervision decision for these two areas. If Fortum will
receive a decision of over debiting regarding the other three areas selected for
supervision of 2004 net prices, Fortum expects to appeal to court.

As a result of the January storms, a government bill for a functional demand
allowing no outages to exceed 24 hours starting in 2011 was passed by the
Swedish parliament in December. The law calls for compensation to customers for
outages exceeding 12 hours starting already in 2006.

The Fortum Reliability Programme to accelerate the reliability improvements in
electricity distribution networks was kicked off in September. In total, the
Distribution segment will invest around EUR 700 million during the next five
years. Of this amount, around EUR 200 million is for the Nordic-wide plan
especially focusing on upgrading reliability. The first scheduled phase of the
plan is three years long.

Fortum has launched a project to provide an Automatic Meter Management system to
all its Nordic customers. The system will be implemented in phases starting in
2006.

During the fourth quarter, Markets' electricity sales totalled 10.8 (11.9) TWh
with sales for the full year 2005 amounting to 40.2 (43.5) TWh. The decrease was
due to the termination of some large long-term contracts at the end of 2004.

Retail electricity prices on the Nordic market continued to increase also during
the last quarter of the year. The retail price development has followed the
wholesale price development. The retail prices at the end of the 2005 were at a
higher level compared to the end of 2004.

2005 was a good year with a positive net inflow of customers. The positive
development was based on successful marketing campaigns and new product launches
especially in the first half of the year. New products and services and the
introduction of customer guarantees have improved customer satisfaction.


Capital expenditures and investments in shares

Capital expenditures and investments in shares for continuing operations in 2005
totalled EUR 479 (514) million. Investments excluding acquisitions were EUR 346
(335) million.

During 2005, Fortum increased its ownership in OAO Lenenergo to 33.2% of the
outstanding voting shares as a result of the redemption of Lenenergo's own
shares relating to its reorganisation. Fortum secured four of the total 11 seats
on the Board of Directors of Lenenergo on 30 June.

In November, Fortum agreed to acquire 24.83% of the shares in the Russian
company Kolenergo and will obtain 23.33% of the voting shares of Kolenergo and
its incorporated companies. The transaction is estimated to take place during
the first quarter of 2006 after formal approval of the relevant authorities.

On 20 December, Fortum acquired 48.7 % of the share capital of the Polish
district heating company MPEC Wroclaw, which has annual heat sales of some 2100
GWh. By the end of the year, Fortum's holding in the company increased to 53.7%
of the share capital and 75.7% of the voting rights. Fortum also issued a public
tender offer for all currently publicly-traded shares in the company. In the
final closing of the public tender regarding the outstanding shares of MPEC
Wroclaw on 24 January 2006, Fortum reached over 90 % of the share capital of the
company.

The  transfer of 85 % of the shareholding of the Polish district heating company
PEC Plock to Fortum took place on 27 December.

Divestments during 2005 consisted of the sales of North Transgas Oy and some
building rights. The gains on these sales are included in nonrecurring items.


Group restructuring

In April 2005, Neste Oil was successfully separated by distributing 85% of its
shares as dividends to Fortum's shareholders and by selling the remaining 15% of
Neste Oil shares to institutional and individual investors. Neste Oil was
subsequently listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange on 18 April.


Financing

During the fourth quarter, Fortum’s financial position continued to improve and
net debt decreased by EUR 175 million. At year end, the interest-bearing net
debt stood at EUR 3.158 million (EUR 5.095 million), giving a total reduction in
net debt of EUR 1.937 million for the year. The gearing ratio was 43% (67%).

The Group’s net financial expenses for the fourth quarter were EUR 35 (78)
million and for the full year 2005 EUR 135 (245) million. The decrease in net
financial expenses is mainly attributable to lower net debt following the spin-
off of the oil businesses and positive changes in the fair values of outstanding
derivatives contracts. Net financial expenses for the fourth quarter includes a
positive change in fair values of derivatives of EUR 14 (- 9) million and the
full year 2005 includes a positive EUR 40 (-6) million change in the fair values
of derivatives in accordance with IAS 39.

Net financial expenses in the fourth quarter included a one-time cost of EUR 15
million due to early prepayment of US private placements bonds originally issued
in 1991 and 1992. In 2004 the cost for a similar debt restructuring was EUR 10
million.

At year end, the average interest rate of Fortum’s interest-bearing loans was
4%.

Group liquidity remained good. Year-end cash and marketable securities totalled
EUR 788 million. In addition, the Group had a total of EUR 1.314 million
available for drawings under committed credit facilities, such as the EUR 1.200

end, the number of employees totalled 8,955 (13,175), of which xxxxxx 8,769
(12,735) were permanent employees. The decreases are due to the separation of
Neste Oil. The number of employees in the parent company, Fortum Corporation, at
year end totalled 550 (619).


Events after the period under review

The Espoo City Council approved in its meeting on 16 January 2006 the agreement,
according to which Fortum acquires all the 5,351,859 E.ON Finland Oyj shares
held by the City of Espoo, corresponding to 34.2% of the shares and the voting
rights of the company. The agreement was signed on 18 January. The agreed
purchase price was EUR 68 per share, i.e. approximately EUR 364 million in
total. A prerequisite for the transaction to take effect is that the 10,246,565
E.ON Finland shares held by E.ON Nordic have been transferred to Fortum's
ownership.

On 2 February 2006, Fortum and E.ON Nordic signed an agreement on the
acquisition of E.ON Finland shares held by E.ON Nordic, subject to approval by
the Finnish Competition Authority. Fortum will pay around EUR 380 million for
this 65.56% stake in the company. In connection to the transaction, all related
outstanding issues between E.ON and Fortum have been settled. As a consequence,
Fortum will pay E.ON a total compensation of EUR 16 million. Fortum intends to
redeem the remaining 0.2% of shares currently owned by minority shareholders.

Fortum is participating in the fifth Finnish nuclear power plant with a share of
approximately 25%. In January, TVO, the company that is building and owns the
plant, informed that the reactor building civil works and the manufacture of
certain primary components are delayed as compared to the original schedule.
However, TVO still believes that the new power plant will generate power in
2009.

Fortum's affiliate OKG announced in January that it is going to increase the
capacity of the third unit of the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant from the
current 1,200 megawatts to 1,450 megawatts. OKG will implement and fund the
power increase and renovation investments through its own balance sheet, i.e.
the investment will not increase Fortum's capital expenditures. However, Fortum
may support OKG's financing through shareholder loans or guarantees. The
investment will be mainly realised in 2008. Fortum's share of ownership in the
Oskarshamn nuclear power plant entitles the company to a share of over 43% of
the production of the power plant, which Fortum buys at cost price. Fortum's
share of the power increase of the power plant's third unit is slightly over 100
megawatts.

At the end of January, Fortum agreed to sell its 40.67% ownership in Enprima Ltd
to Swedish ÅF Group.

Capital structure

Following the separation of the oil businesses Fortum's balance sheet has
strengthened significantly. At year end, the company's gearing stood at 43%.
Fortum wants to have a prudent and efficient capital structure which at the same
time allows the implementation of its strategy.

The company targets a capital structure where net debt to EBITDA ratio is in the
range of 3.0-3.5. In the medium term, allowing for the implementation of
strategy and the returns of capital announced today, Fortum expects to have a
net debt to EBITDA ratio around 3.0.

The definitions for calculating this target are included in the definitions of
key figures at the end of these statements.


Outlook

The key market driver influencing Fortum's business performance is the Nordic
wholesale price of electricity. Key drivers behind the market price development
are the Nordic hydrological situation, CO2 emissions allowance prices and fuel
prices. The Swedish krona exchange rate also affects Fortum's reported result,
as results generated by Fortum in Sweden are translated into euros.

According to general market information, electricity consumption in the Nordic
countries is predicted to increase by about 1% a year over the next few years.

At the end of January, the Nordic water reservoirs were about 5 TWh above the
average and 0.3 TWh above the corresponding level for 2005. At the end of
January, the market price for emissions allowances for 2006 ranged between EUR
26-27 per tonne of CO2. At the same time, the electricity forward price for 2007
was around EUR 40-41 per megawatt-hour and around EUR 38 per megawatt-hour for
2008.

The first and last quarters of the year are usually the strongest quarters for
the continuous operations of the power and heat businesses.

At the end of January, Fortum had hedged approximately 75% of its Nordic Power
Generation sales volume for the remainder of 2006 at approximately EUR 32 per
megawatt-hour. For the calendar year 2007, Fortum has hedged approximately 40%
of its Nordic Power Generation sales volume at approximately EUR 34 per megawatt-
hour. These hedge ratios may vary significantly depending on Fortum's actions on
the electricity derivatives markets. Hedge prices are also influenced by changes
in the SEK/EUR exchange rates, as part of the hedges are conducted in SEK.

Fortum's achieved Nordic Generation power price typically depends on e.g., hedge
ratio, hedge price, spot price, optimisation of Fortum's flexible production
portfolio even on hourly basis and currency changes. If Fortum would not hedge
any of its production volumes, a 1 EUR/MWh change would result in around EUR 50
million change in Fortum's operating profit.

Increases in nuclear and hydro power tax have been made in Sweden and Finland in
conjunction with the governments' 2006 budgets. These taxes will be an
additional cost element in nuclear and hydro power generation. Fortum estimates
that its additional generation costs due to these taxes will be approximately
EUR 60 million in 2006.

Following several years of positive development, Fortum's results in 2005 were
outstanding and its financial position improved significantly. With good growth
opportunities and favourable market fundamentals in the Nordic and Baltic Rim
area, Fortum is well positioned also for the future.


Dividend distribution proposal

The Group's distributable equity as of 31 December 2005 amounted to EUR 3,776
million. Parent company's distributable equity as of 31 December 2005 amounted
to EUR 2,561 million.

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that Fortum
Corporation pay a cash dividend of EUR 1.12 per share for 2005, totalling EUR
980 million based on the number of shares registered as of 31 December 2005. Of
this dividend, EUR 0.58 per share is attributable to the profit from the
continuing operations in 2005, and EUR 0.54 per share to the profit from
discontinued operations.


Proposal to authorise the Board of Directors to decide to repurchase Fortum
shares

The Board of Directors of Fortum Corporation proposes that the Annual General
Meeting of Shareholders on 16 March 2006 authorise the Board of Directors to
decide to repurchase the company’s own shares by using funds available for
distribution of profit. The authorisation is proposed to be valid for one year
from the date of the decision of the Annual General Meeting. The proposal is the
first step in a planned share repurchase programme targeting the repurchase of
Fortum shares by using funds in the maximum amount of EUR 1000 million during
the next three years.

The shares will be repurchased in order to develop the capital structure of the
company.

The maximum amount of shares to be repurchased is 35 million shares. In
addition, the amount of funds used for the repurchases may not exceed EUR 500
million. The proposed maximum amount of shares to be repurchased corresponds to
approximately four per cent of the share capital of the company and the total
voting rights.

The shares will be repurchased through public trading of the securities on the
Helsinki Stock Exchange at the market price of the shares at the time of the
repurchase. Shares repurchased by the company shall be invalidated. The
repurchase of the shares will reduce the company's distributable retained
earnings.

The repurchase will not have a material impact on the division of the ownership
of the shares and the voting rights.


The Annual General Meeting will be held on 16 March at 1:00 pm at the Finlandia
Hall in Helsinki.

1) The legal liability calculated according to the Nuclear Energy Act in Finland
is EUR 618 (596) million as of 31 December 2005 (and 2004 respectively)
Discounted liability in the balance sheet calculated according         
to IAS 37 is EUR 418 (401) million as of 31 December 2005.
The main reason for the difference in liability is that                
the legal liability is not allowed to discount to net
present value.

2) Fortum contributes to the Nuclear Waste Fund according to the           
legal liability. Fortum´s share of the nuclear waste fund as of 31
December 2005 is EUR 610 (581) million.
The value of the fund asset in the balance sheet is EUR 418 (401)      
million as of 31 December 2005 due to  IFRIC Interpretation 5,  which
states that it can not exceed the carrying value of the related liabilities.

3) At year end there is a difference between the legal liability and Fortum´s
share of the nuclear waste fund due to yearly revised calculation of the
liability.
The difference is due to timing of the annual calculation of           
the liability and will be paid during first quarter the following year.
Fortum has given real estate mortgages as security. The                
real estate mortgages are included in contingent liabilities.

This report has been prepared in accordance with IFRS. As of 2005 Fortum   
is applying International Financial reporting Standards (IFRS).
The most important changes for Fortum                                      
continuing operations are:

- Derivatives are being carried at fair value in the balance sheet. Fair
value changes effects the income statement if hedge accounting is not
applied. (IAS 39)

- Fortum´s part of the Finnish nuclear waste fund and the future        
liabilities for spent fuel and decomissioning regarding nuclear
production are disclosed gross in the balance sheet according to IFRIC 
Interpretation 5.

- The minority preference shares with option agreement in Nybroviken    
Kraft AB Group accounted for as minority interest under Finnish GAAP is
reclassified as interest-bearing liabilities under IFRS.

-The accounting of pension liabilities according to IAS 19 creates a   
change to Finnish GAAP, but impacts mainly 2004 since the accounting
treatment of the Finnish  TEL´s disability pension component changed during 
disability pension component changed during the year.

- The oil operations in Fortum are regarded as discontinued operations as of
March 31, 2005. Discontinued operations are disclosed on one line in
the income statement and shown separately in the cash-flow.               
2004 comparison financials are restated.
                                                                           
Fortum has in a press release on April 26, 2005, described the impact of   
the transition to IFRS on 2004 financial information. The document also
included restated quarterly information and reconciliations                
of equity and net profit between Finnish GAAP and IFRS.
The detailed accounting principles used can be found on the Fortum         
website: www.fortum.com/Investors/Financial Information
                                                                           
Emission allowances                                                        
                                                                           
As of January 1, 2005 Fortum implemented IFRIC interpretation 3 in         
accounting for CO2 emission allowances. In June 2005 the IASB decided to
withdraw IFRIC 3 with immediate effect.                                      
Following this decision, Fortum has changed accounting treatment for emission
allowances retroactively. Fortum accounts for the CO2 allowances
based on currently valid IFRS standards where purchased CO2 emission       
allowances are accounted for as intangible assets at cost, whereas CO2
emission allowances received free of charge are accounted for at nominal value.
A provision is recognised to cover the obligation to return emission
allowances and it is measured at its probable settlement amount. This means that
the effect in operating profit will reflect the difference between what has
been emitted and received emission allowances. This difference is          
valued at fair value or the value of the purchased allowances.
