to the annual general meeting of shareholders by the Supervisory Board shall in
addition to the financial statements and the auditor's report refer also to the
operating and financial review, and that Section 14 of the Articles of
Association is amended so that the notice convening a general meeting of
shareholders shall be delivered no more than three months and no less than three
weeks before the general meeting of shareholders, however, at least nine days
before the record date of the general meeting of shareholders, as defined in the
Chapter 4, Section 2, Subsection 2 of the Companies Act.

Shareholders' Nomination Committee

The Annual General Meeting resolved 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
representatives of the three main shareholders and, in addition, as expert
member the chairman of the Board of Directors. The three shareholders whose
shares represent the largest number of the votes of all shares in the company on
the 1st day 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 so requests by notifying the Board of Directors in
writing no later than on 29 October 2010.

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 1 February preceding the Annual General Meeting.

The proposal by The Finnish Shareholders Association to dissolve the Supervisory
Board was not accepted.
