using distributable funds, the company's own series A and series K shares in
proportion to the total number of shares in each series provided that the number
of shares so acquired shall not exceed 2 619 712 shares in series A and 1 127 865
shares in series K. After the acquisition of the own shares, the nominal value of
all own shares held by the company and the votes carried by these shares may not
exceed five per cent (5%) of the company's total share capital or voting rights.

acquired shares.

The inner circle of the company referred to in Chapter 1 Section 4 of the
Companies Act owns all in all 60.7% of the company's all shares and 71.2% of the
voting rights. As it is the intention to acquire the own shares on the Helsinki
Stock Exchange without knowledge of the transferor, it will not be possible to
give exact information about the proportion of the shares and the voting rights
that the inner circle owns after the acquisition.

This authorization is proposed to remain in force for one year from the
resolution of the General Meeting.

The Board points out that the authorization to acquire own shares granted at the

Following this authorization, the number of shares covered is below five per cent
(5%) of the company's total share capital and the voting rights.

The Board shall be authorized to determine to whom and in what order the
company's own shares shall be conveyed. The Board may decide on the conveyance of
the shares otherwise than in proportion to the shareholders' pre-emptive
subscription rights. The Board has the right to use this authorization when there
are weighty reasons in order to ensure the preconditions of the group's
activities or to strengthen and develop the company's international and/or
domestic business, or as part of its management incentive system. The
authorization does not include the right to convey the shares to a person
belonging to the inner circle of the company referred to in Chapter 1, Section 4,
