10. Proposal by the State of Finland to appoint a Nomination Committee

The State of Finland represented by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, proposes
that the Annual General Meeting resolve to appoint a Nomination Committee to
prepare proposals concerning Board members and their remuneration for the
following Annual General Meeting. The Nomination Committee will consist of the
Chairman of the Board of Directors, acting as an expert member, and the
representatives of the three main shareholders. The three shareholders whose
share of the total votes of all the shares of the company is largest on the 1st
of November preceding the Annual General Meeting will have the right to appoint
the members representing the shareholders. Should a shareholder not wish to use
its right to nominate, this right will be passed on to the next biggest
shareholder. The largest shareholders will be determined on the basis of the
ownership information registered in the book-entry system. In case an owner is
required under the Securities Markets Act to report certain changes in ownership
(when flagging by shareholder is required), for example when the ownership is
distributed among various funds, the ownership will be counted as one holding,
if the owner informs the Board in writing of this request no later than on 31
October 2007.

The Nomination Committee will be convened by the Chairman of the Board of
Directors, and the Committee will choose a chairman from among its own members.

The Committee shall give its proposal to the Board of Directors of the company
at the latest by the 1st of February preceding the Annual General Meeting.
