divided by total equity at the end of the period. Profit for
the period from discontinued operations has been subtracted
from total equity as at 31 December 2005.

The first quarter of 2006 was a good start to the year. The
company's financial performance improved clearly from one
year ago. Operating results in all segments excluding
Markets improved. Cash flow from operating activities was
strong. Due to the EUR 987 million dividend payment during
the first quarter, the company's net debt increased by EUR
742 million to EUR 3,900 million compared to year-end 2005.


Sales and results for continuing operations

January-March

Group sales stood at EUR 1,343 (1,133) million. The increase
in sales was mainly due to increased power consumption
caused by colder than average weather, higher wholesale
power prices, and higher heat sales, partly stemming from
acquired companies in Poland.

Group operating profit totalled EUR 472 (406) million.
Comparable operating profit increased by EUR 93 million to
EUR 486 (393) million. The difference in reported and
comparable operating profit was mainly due to the accounting
effects of IAS 39 in the Power Generation and Heat segments.

Fortum Generation's achieved Nordic power price was EUR 37.1
(31.6) per megawatt-hour, up by 17% from a year ago. The
average spot price of power in Nord Pool (the Nordic power
exchange) was EUR 45.4 (25.9) per megawatt-hour,
approximately 75% higher than a year ago. In Continental
Europe, the spot price for electricity was on average higher
than in Nord Pool, resulting in net exports from the Nordic
countries to Germany.

The comparable operating profit of the Power Generation
segment was higher than during the corresponding period last
year, despite increased taxes on nuclear capacity and hydro
property. The profit increase was mainly due to the higher
achieved power price.

The sales and the comparable operating profit of the Heat
segment improved due to much colder weather than in January-
March 2005, good availability of combined heat and power
(CHP) plants and the acquisitions of two district heating
companies in Poland at the end of 2005. The first quarter's
comparable operating profit of the Heat segment was EUR 19
million higher than last year.

The sales of the Distribution segment were higher, mainly
due to higher volumes. The Distribution segment's comparable
operating profit was higher than a year ago, mainly due to
costs caused by the storms in Sweden and Norway, which
affected the first quarter last year, and also due to higher
volumes.

The sales of the Markets segment were higher due to
increased electricity consumption, higher retail electricity
prices, increased number of customers and new large customer
agreements. The Markets segment reported a lower comparable
operating profit than last year. The main reason for the
lower profit in the segment was the inability to pass on
increasing electricity procurement costs to customers.

Profit before taxes was EUR 492 (386) million.

The Group's net financial expenses were lower than last year
and amounted to EUR 15 (35) million. The main reasons for
the decrease were lower net debt and lower interest rates
than during the corresponding period last year. The Group's
net financial expenses include a positive EUR 15 (11)
million change in the fair value of derivatives, which do
not qualify for hedge accounting under IAS 39.

The share of profit of associates and joint ventures
increased to EUR 35 (15) million. The biggest contributors
to the increase were Hafslund and Gasum.

Minority interests accounted for EUR 26 (25) million. The
minority interests are mainly attributable to Fortum Värme,
in which the City of Stockholm has a 50% economic interest.

Taxes for the period totalled EUR 120 (116) million. The tax
rate according to the income statement was 24.4% (26.1% for
the year 2005).

The profit for the period was EUR 372 (270) million.
Fortum's earnings per share were EUR 0.39 (0.28). Return on
capital employed was 15.0% (13.5% at year-end 2005) for the
last twelve months, and return on shareholders' equity was
16.0% (13.5% at year-end 2005) for the last twelve months.


Market conditions

According to preliminary statistics, the Nordic countries
consumed 121 (116) TWh of electricity during the first
quarter of the year, which was 4% more than during the
corresponding period of the previous year.

During the first quarter, the average spot price for
electricity in Nord Pool, the Nordic power exchange, was EUR
45.4 (25.9) per megawatt-hour, or 75% higher than during the
corresponding period in 2005.

The market price of emissions allowances for 2006 increased
from approximately EUR 22 per tonne of CO2 to approximately
EUR 27 per tonne of CO2 in January, at which level they
remained during the first quarter. This is significantly
higher than during the corresponding period in 2005 when the
emissions price was between EUR 7 and 15 per tonne of CO2.

The year started out with a 7 TWh surplus in the Nordic
water reservoirs. However, the first quarter was cold and
dry, and the Nordic hydro generation remained at a high
level. Thus, by the beginning of April, the Nordic water
reservoirs had decreased to about 4 TWh below the average.
They were at the same level as during the corresponding
period in 2005. However, snow levels are at a lower level
than last year.

In Continental Europe, the spot price of electricity was on
average higher than in Nord Pool, resulting in net exports
from the Nordic countries to Germany.


Total power and heat generation figures

Fortum's total power generation during the first quarter of
2006 was 15.3 (14.7) TWh, of which 15.0 (14.3) TWh was in
the Nordic countries. This represents approximately 12%
(12%) of the total Nordic electricity consumption.

Fortum's total power and heat generation figures are
presented below. In addition, the segment reviews include
the respective figures by segment.

In January-March, the segment's power generation in the
Nordic countries was 13.3 (12.8) TWh, of which about 5.8
(5.6) TWh or 43% (44%) was hydropower-based, 7.0 (7.0) TWh
or 53% (55%) nuclear power-based and 0.5 (0.2) TWh or 4%
(1%) thermal power-based. The increase in thermal power
generation was due to higher spot prices caused by colder
and dryer than average weather.

*) For the Power Generation segment in the Nordic area,
excluding pass-through sales.

In the first quarter, the average Nord Pool spot price was
75% higher than a year ago. Fortum Generation's average
achieved Nordic power price (excluding pass-through items)
in the first quarter was 17% higher than a year ago, mainly
due to improved hedging prices and higher spot prices. The
related sales volume was 13.6 (13.0) TWh for the first
quarter 2006.

The restrictions in Russian electricity exports to Finland
in January had a small effect on Fortum's imported
electricity. At the same time, Fortum increased its use of
thermal power plants.

In January, Fortum and the Russian Territorial Company No 9
(TGC-9) signed an agreement on conducting technical audits
and preparing proposals for improving the operational
efficiency of the power plants of TGC-9.

Fortum's affiliate OKG announced in January that it has
launched a project to increase the capacity of the third
unit of the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant from the current
1,200 megawatts to 1,450 megawatts. OKG will implement and
fund the power increase and renovation investments through
its own balance sheet. Fortum's ownership entitles it to a
share of over 43% of the production of the power plant,
which Fortum buys at cost price. Fortum's share of the power
increase of the power plant's third unit is slightly over
100 megawatts.

Heat

The business area comprises heat generation and sales in
the Nordic countries and other parts of the Baltic Rim.
Fortum is the leading heat producer in the Nordic
region. The segment also generates power in the combined
heat and power plants (CHP) and sells it to end-
customers mainly by long-term contracts, as well as to
Nord Pool. The segment includes business units Heat and Värme.

The segment's heat sales during the first quarter amounted
to 10.3 (8.6) TWh, most of which is generated in the Nordic
countries. In January-March, power sales at combined heat
and power plants (CHP) totalled 1.7 (1.6) TWh.

The volume increase in the segment was mainly the result of
much colder weather than in January-March 2005, good
availability of combined heat and power (CHP) plants and the
acquisitions of two district heating companies in Poland at
the end of 2005. In Sweden, there was good growth in volume
and in the number of new customers.

In January, Fortum's ownership of Fortum Wroclaw S.A. in
Poland increased to 90.2 percent of the share capital and to
94.4 percent of the voting rights. Fortum intends to de-list
the company from the Warsaw stock exchange.

TWh, respectively.

Electricity transmissions via the regional distribution
network to customers outside the Group totalled 4.5 (4.2)
TWh in Sweden and 0.9 (0.9) TWh in Finland.

The first quarter was characterised by favourable weather
conditions in Sweden and Norway. This resulted in higher
than usual distribution volumes and few weather-related
disturbances. In Sweden, the investments over the last years
to improve the reliability of Fortum's distribution networks
are starting to show effect.

In Sweden, a final decision on the supervision of the 2003
network tariffs is expected during the spring. Fortum areas
concerned are the western coast and Stockholm.

Fortum implemented customer guarantees in Norway from
January 1. Fortum is the only energy company in Norway to
give their customers a customer service guarantee. These
guarantees are already in place in Sweden and Finland.

During the first quarter, Markets' electricity sales
totalled 12.7 TWh. The increase of 0.8 TWh compared to the
corresponding period last year was mainly due to increased
electricity consumption for heating purposes, an increased
number of customers compared to the corresponding quarter a
year ago, and new large business customer agreements. During
the first quarter, the number of customers stayed at
approximately the same level as at year-end.

Retail electricity prices on the Nordic market during the
first quarter were generally higher than during the
corresponding period in the previous year. End consumer
prices have, so far, not fully followed the price increase
on the wholesale market (Nord Pool).


Capital expenditures and investments in shares

Capital expenditures and investments in shares for
continuing operations in January-March totalled EUR 114 (49)
million. Investments, excluding acquisitions, were EUR 71
(49) million.

In the final closing of the public tender regarding the
outstanding shares of MPEC Wroclaw on 24 January 2006,
Fortum's ownership reached 90.2 percent of the share capital
and 94.4 percent of the voting rights of the company. Fortum
intends to de-list the company from the Warsaw stock
exchange.

On 2 February 2006, E.ON Nordic AB and Fortum signed a
contract according to which Fortum is purchasing all the
shares of E.ON Finland Oyj owned by E.ON Nordic. When the
purchase takes effect, the contract regarding the shares of
E.ON Finland owned by the City of Espoo, signed by the City
of Espoo and Fortum on 18 January 2006, will also become
effective. With these share transactions Fortum will own a
number of shares entitling it to 99.8% of the share capital
and votes of E.ON Finland. The purchase requires the
approval of the Finnish Competition Authority. The Finnish
Competition Authority announced on 3 March 2006 that it
would continue its evaluation of the acquisition of shares
in E.ON Finland Oyj and that the further processing would
last a maximum of three months.


Financing

First quarter 2006 net debt increased by EUR 742 million to
EUR 3,900 million. The increase in net debt is primarily
linked to the EUR 987 million dividend payment on 2005
results paid in March 2006.

The net cash from operating activities was strong, amounting
to EUR 303 (62) million for the continuing activities.

The Group's net financial expenses were EUR 15 (35) million.
The main reasons for the decrease were lower net debt and
lower interest rates than for the corresponding period last
year. The Group's net financial expenses include a positive
EUR 15 (11) million change in the fair value of derivatives,
which do not qualify for hedge accounting under IAS 39.

Fortum Corporation’s long-term credit rating from Moody’s
and Standard and Poor's was A2 (stable) and A- (stable),
respectively.


Shares and share capital

During the first quarter, a total of 238.0 million Fortum
Corporation shares totalling EUR 4,614 million were traded.
Fortum's market capitalisation, calculated using the closing
quotation of the last trading day of the quarter, was EUR
18,354 million. The highest quotation of Fortum Corporation
shares on the Helsinki Stock Exchange in the first quarter
was EUR 21.50, the lowest EUR 15.71, and the average
quotation EUR 19.38. The closing quotation on the last
trading day of the quarter was EUR 20.82.

A total of 6,252,200 shares subscribed for based on the
share option schemes were entered into the trade register in
the first quarter of 2006. After these subscriptions,
Fortum's share capital is EUR 2,997,257,165 and the total
number of registered shares is 881,546,225.

At the end of the quarter, the Finnish state's holding in
Fortum was 51.1%. The proportion of international
shareholders stood at 34.0%.

The Board of Directors received an authorisation from the
General Meeting of Shareholders to acquire the company's own
shares. The maximum amount of shares to be repurchased is 35
million. In addition, the amount of funds used for the
possible repurchases may not exceed EUR 500 million.
Currently the Board of Directors has no unused
authorisations from the General Meeting of Shareholders to
issue convertible loans or bonds with warrants or issue new
shares.


Annual General Meeting

At the Annual General Meeting, held on 16 March 2006, a cash
dividend of EUR 1.12 (0.58) per share was approved. Of this
dividend, EUR 0.58 per share was attributable to the profit
from the continuing operations in 2005, and EUR 0.54 per
share to the profit from discontinued operations.

The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors
to decide on repurchasing the company’s own shares by using
funds available for distribution of profit. The
authorisation is valid for one year from the date of the
decision of the Annual General Meeting. The maximum amount
of shares to be repurchased is 35 million. In addition, the
amount of funds used for the repurchases may not exceed EUR
500 million.

The maximum amount of shares to be repurchased corresponds
to approximately four per cent of the share capital of the
company and the total voting rights.

The number of members on Fortum's Supervisory Board was
confirmed to be 11. The following persons were re-elected to
the Supervisory Board: Members of Parliament Lasse Hautala,
Rakel Hiltunen, Mikko Immonen, Timo Kalli, Kimmo Kiljunen,
Jari Koskinen and Ben Zyskowicz, second vice chairman of the
City Council Martti Alakoski and Industrial Counsellor Kimmo
Kalela. Member of Parliament Sirpa Paatero was elected as a
new member. Timo Kalli was elected as Chairman and Rakel
Hiltunen as Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board. The
Supervisory Board was elected for a term of office that
lasts until the end of the next Annual General Meeting.

The number of members on the Board of Directors was
confirmed to be seven. The following persons were re-elected
to the Board of Directors: Peter Fagernäs (Chairman),
Birgitta Kantola (Deputy Chairman), Birgitta Johansson-
Hedberg, Matti Lehti and Marianne Lie. Esko Aho and
Christian Ramm-Schmidt were elected as new members. The
Board of Directors was elected for a term of office that
lasts until the end of the next Annual General Meeting.

The Annual General Meeting elected Authorised Public
Accountant Deloitte & Touche Oy as auditor.


Group personnel

The average number of employees in the Group during the
period from January to March was 8,886 (13,135). The
decrease is due to the separation of Neste Oil. The number
of employees at the end of the period was 8,900 (8,731).

Events after the period under review

Fortum is participating in the fifth Finnish nuclear plant
with a share of approximately 25%. TVO, the company that is
building and owns the plant, has informed that the reactor
building civil works and the manufacture of certain primary
components are delayed by 8-9 months.

In January, Fortum signed an agreement on the sale of its
approximately 40% holding in Enprima Oy to the Swedish ÅF
Group. The deal was completed on April 24.


Outlook

The key market driver influencing Fortum's business
performance is the Nordic wholesale price of power. Key
drivers behind the wholesale price development are the
Nordic hydrological situation, CO2 emissions allowance
prices, fuel prices and the demand for electricity. The
Swedish krona exchange rate also affects Fortum's result as
results generated by Fortum in Sweden are translated to
euros.

According to general market information, electricity
consumption in the Nordic countries is predicted to increase
by about 1% a year over the next few years.

In mid-April, the Nordic water reservoirs were about 5 TWh
below the average and 2 TWh lower than at the same time in
2005. In mid-April, the market price for emissions
allowances for 2006 was around EUR 29-31 per tonne of CO2.
At the same time, the electricity price in the forward
market for the rest of 2006 was in the range of EUR 53-55
per megawatt-hour, around EUR 49-51 per megawatt-hour for
2007 and around EUR 47-49 per megawatt-hour for 2008.

At the beginning of April, Fortum had hedged approximately
80% of its Nordic Power Generation sales volume for the
remainder of 2006 at approximately EUR 33 per megawatt-hour.
For the calendar year 2007, Fortum has hedged approximately
55% of its Nordic Power Generation sales volume at
approximately EUR 37 per megawatt-hour. These hedge ratios
may vary significantly depending on Fortum's actions on the
electricity derivatives markets. Hedge prices are also
influenced by changes in the SEK/EUR exchange rates, as part
of the hedges are conducted in SEK.

Fortum Generation's achieved Nordic power price typically
depends on e.g. the hedge ratio, hedge price, spot price,
optimisation of Fortum's flexible production portfolio even
on an hourly basis, and currency changes. If Fortum would
not hedge any of its production volumes, a 1 EUR/MWh change
in the spot price would result in approximately a EUR 50
million change in Fortum's annual operating profit.

The first quarter of 2006 was a strong start to the year.
With good growth opportunities and favourable market
fundamentals, Fortum is well positioned also for the
remainder of 2006 and for 2007.

according to the Nuclear Energy Act 1)
Fortum´s share of reserves -618 -596 -610
in the Nuclear Waste Fund 2)
Difference covered by real 0 0 8
estate mortgages 3)


1) The legal liability calculated according to the Nuclear Energy Act in
Finland is EUR 618 (596) million as of 31 March 2006 (and 2005
respectively)
Discounted liability in the balance sheet calculated according to IAS
37 is EUR 421 (404) million as of 31 March 2006.
The main reason for the difference in liability is that the legal
liability is not allowed to discount to net present value.

2) Fortum contributes to the Nuclear Waste Fund according to the legal
liability. Fortum´s share of the nuclear waste fund as of 31 March 2006
is EUR 618 (596) million.

The value of the fund asset in the balance sheet is EUR 421 (404)
million as of 31 March 2006 due to IFRIC Interpretation 5, which states
that it can not exceed the carrying value of the related liabilities.

3) At year end there is a difference between the legal liability and
Fortum´s share of the nuclear waste fund due to yearly revised
calculation of the liability.
The difference is due to timing of the annual calculation of the
liability and will be paid during first quarter the following year.
Fortum has given real estate mortgages as security. The real estate
mortgages are included in contingent liabilities.
