Fortum estimates approx. EUR 700 million one-time negative impact on net profit due to planned closure of OKG nuclear units 1 and 2 in Sweden


OKG AB's Board of Directors has today decided to invite an Extraordinary
shareholders' meeting on 14 October 2015 in order to be able to make a decision
on the closing of the units 1 and 2 in Oskarshamn nuclear power plant in
Sweden. In OKG AB, E.ON is the majority owner and can decide on the closing of

For unit 1 the decision would mean that the unit would be taken out of
operation and transferred into service mode after the applied environmental

Fortum has evaluated the financial impact of the decision based on the
currently available information from OKG AB. Fortum estimates that the decision
will have a one-time negative impact of approximately EUR 700 million on its
third quarter 2015 net profit.

Fortum owns approximately 45.5% of the shares in OKG AB through its Swedish
subsidiaries. Karlstad municipality in Sweden is a shareholder in one of these
subsidiaries, which gives it an indirect ownership of approximately 2.1% of the
OKG shares. Excluding Karlstad municipality's interest, Fortum's ownership is
43.4%, which reflects the share of electricity produced that Fortum can sell
further to the market.

When all units were operating, Oskarshamn's three nuclear power units provided
approximately 10% of the Swedish electricity generation. The total production
capacity of the units is 2,511 megawatts (MW) of which Fortum's share is 1,090
MW. The biggest and newest unit 3, with capacity of 1,400 MW, will continue its
operation (Fortum's share 608 MW). Oskarhamn 1 was commissioned in 1972,
Oskarshamn 2 in 1974 and Oskarshamn 3 in 1985.
