The subscription period for share warrants under the Management Share Option
Scheme 1999 ended on 1 October 2005.

The increase in the share capital resulting from the share subscriptions, a
total
of EUR 7,864,370, was entered in the Trade Register on 8 December 2005. After
this increase, Fortum Corporation's share capital is EUR 2,975,999,685 and the

According to the terms of subscription, the new shares subscribed for under the
Management Share Option Scheme 1999 will entitle to a dividend possibly paid by
the company for the financial period of 2005 and onwards. New shares subscribed
for via Share Option Schemes 2001A and 2002A for key employees will entitle to a

The intention is that the next time share subscriptions connected to Fortum
share
option schemes are registered will be approximately on 3 March 2006 when new
shares subscribed for by 23 February 2006 will be registered. New shares
subscribed for with share warrants by 23 February 2006 will entitle to a
dividend
possibly paid in spring 2006 by the company for the financial period of 2005.
Similarly, the holders of such new shares will be entitled to participate in the
spring 2006 shareholders´ meeting under the terms indicated in the notice to the
shareholders' meeting.

After the registration in March 2006, the intention is that the next time shares
subscribed for with share warrants are registered will be approximately on 8
June
2006. Shares registered on that date no longer entitle to a dividend possibly
paid for the financial period of 2005.

The subscription price for shares subscribed for under Fortum's share warrants
2001A and 2002A equals the nominal value of the share, i.e., EUR 3.40. Hence,
dividends distributed no longer lower the subscription price since the terms of
the option scheme state that the subscription price has to be at the minimum the
nominal value of the share.

New shares subscribed for with share warrants will be listed in the Helsinki
Stock Exchange along with old Fortum shares once the corresponding increase in
share capital has been registered.
