FORTUM CORPORATION STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 4 AUGUST 2017 15:00 EEST


Fortum has today concluded the restructuring of its ownership in Hafslund
together with the City of Oslo, as originally announced on 26 April 2017.

Fortum has sold its 34.1% stake in Hafslund ASA to the City of Oslo and
acquired 100% of Hafslund’s Markets business area. Hafslund’s Heat business
area and the City of Oslo’s waste-to-energy company Klemetsrudanlegget AS (KEA)
have been combined into one company and Fortum has acquired 50% of the combined
company. In addition, Fortum has acquired 10% of Hafslund’s current Production
business area.

The combined net cash investment of the transactions, including dividend
received in May 2017, is expected to be approximately EUR 230 million. Fortum
expects to book a one-time tax-free sales gain in its third quarter 2017
results totalling approximately EUR 325 million, which corresponds to EUR 0.36
earnings per share.

Transaction costs of approximately EUR 5 million will be included in the result
for the third quarter of 2017.

Hafslund Markets will be a part of the Consumer Solutions division and will be
consolidated into Fortum Group from 1 August 2017. The combined company of
Hafslunds Heat business area and KEA will be consolidated with 50% minority
interest into the results of City Solutions from 1 August 2017. The Hafslund
Production business area will be treated as an associated company and reported
in the Generation segment.
