Perlos Corporation's alleged security markets information offence to the Appeal
Court

The District Court of Helsinki has by its decision of 27 June 2008 dismissed the
charges for security markets information offence against Fortum Corporation's
CEO Mikael Lilius and three other members of the Board of Directors of Perlos
Corporation from years 2002-2003. The matter concerned the alleged delay in
releasing Perlos Corporation's profit warning in the turn of the year 2002-2003.
Lilius was a member of the Board of Directors of Perlos Corporation from the
year 1997 to 2003. The District Attorney has appealed against the judgment to
the Appeal Court.
