PROPOSAL OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF TIETOENATOR CORPORATION TO THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING ON 29 MARCH 2000

PROPOSAL OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF TIETOENATOR CORPORATION TO THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING ON 29 MARCH 2000 The Board of Directors of TietoEnator will propose to the AGM that bonds with warrants be offered to employees of the Company, and that the Board of Directors be authorised to buy back Company shares, to issue shares etc, to donate to good causes and to sell shares in joint book-entry account. The Board of Directors of TietoEnator Corporation will propose to the Annual General Meeting that the following matters be decided: 1 Bonds with warrants to Group employees That a loan with option rights be raised in accordance with the enclosed attachment (bonds with warrants). The Board proposes to offer bonds with warrants for subscription by the personnel and about 100 managers of TietoEnator Corporation and its Group and majority-owned companies and by Company's wholly owned subsidiary. The warrants entitle personnel to subscribe total 3,700,000 shares by most, corresponding to 3,111,475,35 EUR increase in share capital by most. The Board proposes that shareholders' pre-emptive subscription rights be disapplied because the bonds with warrants forms part of the Company's employee incentive scheme. In the Board's opinion there exists a weighty financial reason for deviating from shareholders' pre-emptive subscription rights since the bonds with warrants is part of the Group's employee incentive scheme. The Board proposes that the subscription price be based on the market price of the share. The subscription price is the trading volume weighted average share price between 3 April 2000 and 28 April 2000 the aforementioned days included. Some of the persons entitled to subscribe for these shares are members of the Company's inner circle. The aggregate number of shares owned by such persons, as well as the shares subscribable under previously issued warrants in their possession, represent 0.17 % of the Company's total share capital and voting rights. Should such persons exercise all the warrants offered to them to subscribe for shares and should the rights issue in other respects be subscribed in full, the said holdings could rise to at most 0.29 % of the Company's share capital and the voting rights. The proposed bonds with warrants forms part of the Company's remuneration and incentive scheme and follows on from the convertible bonds offered to Company employees in 1989 and the bonds with warrants offered to Company employees in 1996, 1998 and 1999. 2 Board's authorization to purchase the Company's own shares That the Board of Directors be authorized for one year from the close of the Annual General Meeting, i.e. until 29 March 2001, to purchase the Company's own shares on the following terms and conditions: The Company's own shares shall be purchased in order to develop the Company's capital structure and to reduce its negative gearing (net borrowing in relation to shareholders' equity); Shares may be purchased to the extent that the total number of purchased shares, the total book counter value of the purchased shares, or the total number of votes carried by the shares after their purchase, does not exceed 5 % of the total number of shares, the Company's share capital or total number of votes respectively. The shares may be purchased by using only funds available for distribution. The purchase price will then reduce the Company's distributable funds; Since in practice it will be impossible to purchase shares from the Company's existing shareholders in proportion to their holdings, shares shall not be purchased in proportion to their holdings but shall be purchased through public trading on the Helsinki Exchanges; The shares will be purchased at the market price formed during public trading. The purchase price of the shares will be paid to the sellers within the payment period stipulated by the rules of the Helsinki Exchanges and the Finnish Central Securities Depository Ltd; The Company's share capital totals EUR 64,764,874.18 and there are altogether 77,014,923 shares. The shares have no nominal value. The book counter value of each share is approximately EUR 0.84. Based on the warrants attached to the bonds with warrants issued in 1996, the Company's share capital may be increased by at most 2,073,420 shares during the period of authorization. Should all the shares under these warrants be subscribed, the total number of shares may increase to at most 79,088,343. This means that at most 3,954,417 shares may be purchased under the authorization. The purchased shares would reduce the number of issued shares and the number of votes by at most 5 % of the Company's total number of shares and votes. Hence their purchase will have no material impact on the Company's ownership structure or voting power. The aggregate number of shares owned by persons belonging to the Company's inner circle, as well as the shares subscribable under previously issued warrants in their possession, represent 0.174 % of the Company's total share capital and such persons hold 0.174 % of the voting rights. Should their holdings remain unchanged, and should all the warrants attached to the 1996 bonds with warrants be exercised to subscribe for shares, and should the Company purchase the maximum amount of shares permitted by the authorization, i.e. 5 % of the total number of shares, the members of the Company's inner circle will own 0.169 % of the Company's share capital and they will hold 0.169 % of the votes carried by the shares before the Company purchases its own shares and 0.178 % after the purchase of own shares. 3 Board's authorization to issue shares etc. That the Board of Directors be authorized for one year from the close of the Annual General Meeting, i.e. until 29 March 2001, to decide: 1) to raise the Company's share capital through a rights issue in one or several installments, disapplying the pre-emptive subscription rights of shareholders and, if required, in exchange for consideration in kind or on other specific conditions or exercising the right of set-off, such that shares are offered for subscription at the Board's decision and at the price exceeding the book counter value of the share and on other terms and conditions decided by the Board. 2) to issue share options in one or several installments, disapplying the pre-emptive subscription rights of shareholders, such that the share options are offered for subscription on the terms and conditions decided by the Board. 3) to raise a convertible bond loan denominated in euro or another currency disapplying the pre-emptive subscription rights of shareholders and, if required, in exchange for consideration in kind, such that the convertible bonds is offered for subscription on the terms and conditions decided by the Board. Based on this authorization the share capital may be increased by at most 12,952,974.836 EUR. Subscription rights will be disapplied with the purpose of safeguarding the Company's ability to develop its operations, both in the domestic and in the international markets, in order to enable and to finance both the acquisition of companies and business operations and also other cooperative arrangements, or to create necessary incentive schemes to the Group's new personnel. Shareholders' pre-emptive rights with respect to share subscriptions, share options or convertible bonds may be disapplied based on the above mentioned grounds only if the Company has weighty financial reason for doing so. Such a decision may not be made in the interests of a person belonging to the Company's inner circle. Based on this authorization the Board may decided to raise the share capital by issuing new shares, share options or convertible bonds to the extent that the share capital increases and the votes carried by such th shares do not exceed one-fifth (1/5 ) of the Company's total issued share capital and aggregate number of votes carried by the shares at the time of the authorization and the Board's decision to raise the share capital or raise a loan. 4 Donations to good causes That the Board of Directors be authorized for one year from the close of the Annual General Meeting, i.e. until 29 March 2001, to donate amounts totalling at most 70,000 EUR to good causes. 5 Sale of shares in joint book-entry account That the Board of Directors be authorized to sell at most 32,520 shares on behalf of those shareholders who have not submitted their share certificates to the book-entry securities system for registration of ownership, and to take all requisite measures to implement this decision.

Should the event, referred to in Chapter 14, Section 19, of the Companies Act, arise whereby a shareholder holds more than 90 per cent of the shares in the Company as well as the voting rights, thus creating a right and obligation to redeem the outstanding shares, the holders of the share warrants will be given an opportunity to exercise their subscription rights during a period to be determined by the Board of Directors. Should the Company prior to the subscription period expiring under the share warrants change from a public limited company into private limited company, the holders of the share warrants will be given an opportunity to exercise their rights, during a period to be determined by the Board of Directors.

Should the number of the shares be changed so that the share capital shall remain unchanged, the subscription terms and conditions shall be amended so that the aggregate proportion of the shares to be subscribed for relative to all the shares in the Company and their aggregate subscription price will remain unchanged. 6 Settlement of disputes Any disputes related to this bond loan with share warrants shall be resolved through arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration of the Central Chamber of Commerce of Finland. 7 Miscellaneous The Board of Directors shall decide on other aspects related to the bond loan, share warrants and subscription and allocation there of.
