We improved our operational performance from a year ago and Fortum's comparable operating profit increased clearly in the last quarter of the year. Thanks to successful and consistent hedging, Fortum's achieved power price in Power Division clearly exceeded the Nord Pool system average in 2009. However, there was a disappointment in the Power Division as well: nuclear volumes were clearly below normal as the planned schedules of upgrade projects were exceeded at co-owned nuclear plants in Sweden. In total, Fortum lost approximately 4 terawatt-hours (TWh) of nuclear volume in Sweden during 2009 due to the unplanned outages. I am especially delighted that the Markets business area has turned positive. Our restructuring and cost savings actions have proven a success. The Russia Division is on track to reach the targeted EUR 100 million efficiency improvements in 2011. This is no small achievement, bearing in mind difficult economic conditions. Furthermore, the market price for power has been increasing from quarter to another during 2009, indicating that the worst is likely to be over also in Russian economy. Power sector reform in Russia progressed as planned: The share of wholesale power sold on the competitive market in Russia was increased from 30% to 50% at the beginning of July 2009. The share increased further to 60% from the beginning of 2010. The overall Nordic power consumption decreased about 5% in 2009. The colder than usual weather and the pick-up in industrial activity improved the power demand outlook towards the end of the year. We currently expect Nordic demand for power to recover back to the 2008 level by 2012-2014. I want to express my gratitude to all Fortum's employees on continued good work. We all have shown that we can do a lot to improve our performance. I believe that the ongoing work to improve efficiency, accountability and simplicity in our operations will create a good platform for the future." Financial results October-December Group sales were EUR 1,563 (1,602) million. Group operating profit totalled EUR 522 (611) million. Comparable operating profit totalled EUR 570 (508) million. The fourth-quarter reported operating profit was affected by negative mark-to-market accounting effects (IAS 39) from the decrease in the value of Fortum's power derivatives portfolio and in the value of the currency derivatives used for hedging the power derivatives portfolio. The difference between nonrecurring items, mark-to-market effects and nuclear fund adjustments between the fourth quarters of 2009 and 2008 was EUR -151 million, explaining the decline in the fourth quarter reported operating profit. The fourth-quarter net profit decreased EUR 176 million from a year ago. Earnings per share were EUR 0.46 (0.64), 28% lower than in the fourth quarter of last year. The decline stems from lower reported operating profit in 2009 and from the positive one-time tax effects booked mainly in the fourth-quarter results in 2008.

Group operating profit totalled EUR 1,782 (1,963) million. Comparable operating profit totalled EUR 1,888 (1,845) million. The difference in nonrecurring items, mark-to-market effects and nuclear fund adjustments between 2009 and 2008 was EUR -224 million, explaining the decline in the reported operating profit. The average SEK rate in 2009 decreased by approximately 9% compared to 2008. The translation effect caused by the lower average SEK rate was approximately EUR -96 million in Fortum's 2009 comparable operating profit compared to last year. The share of profits/losses of associates and joint ventures was EUR 21 million, EUR 105 million lower than in the previous year. This was mainly due to the lower contribution from Hafslund ASA. Hafslund's effect was EUR 52 million of the decrease. Fortum's liquidity remained strong. Liquid funds at the end of the year 2009 amounted to EUR 890 million and undrawn committed credit facilities were approximately EUR 2.9 billion. The Group's net financial expenses decreased to EUR 167 (239) million. The decrease is attributable to lower interest expenses. The change in fair value of financial instruments was EUR -1 (-11) million. Profit before taxes was EUR 1,636 (1,850) million. Taxes for the period totalled EUR 285 (254) million. The tax rate according to the income statement was 17.4% (13.7%). The profit for the period was EUR 1,351 (1,596) million. Fortum's earnings per share were EUR 1.48 (1.74). As reported a year ago, the 2008 net earnings included EUR 184 million from one-time tax effects and non-recurring sales gains, mostly booked into the fourth-quarter results in 2008. Non-controlling (minority) interests accounted for EUR 39 (54) million. These are mainly attributable to Fortum Värme Holding AB, in which the city of Stockholm has a 50% economic interest. Return on capital employed was 12.1% for the year (15.0%), and return on shareholders' equity was 16.0% (18.7%). Fortum's net debt to EBITDA for 2009 stood at 2.6 (2.5). Market conditions NORDIC COUNTRIES According to preliminary statistics, the Nordic countries consumed 103 (104) TWh of electricity in the fourth quarter of 2009, about 1% less than in the previous year. During 2009, the Nordic countries consumed about 372 (393) TWh. The decrease is mainly due to the drop in industrial consumption as a result of the recession. According to Fortum's estimate, Nordic industrial consumption decreased by close to 15% compared to 2008. The price of coal remained relatively stable during the fourth quarter of 2009, continuing on a clearly lower level compared to one year before. The average market price of coal (ICE Rotterdam) during the fourth quarter was USD 76 (101) per tonne. The average market price of coal (ICE Rotterdam) during the year 2009 was USD 70 (146) per tonne. During the fourth quarter, the average market price of CO2 emission allowances (EUA) was EUR 13.8 per tonne CO2. The corresponding price for CO2 emission allowances for 2009 was EUR 13.4 per tonne CO2. Year 2009 started with the Nordic water reservoirs 5 TWh below the long-term average. At the end of the fourth quarter, the Nordic water reservoirs were 7 TWh below the long-term average and 2 TWh below the corresponding level last year. During the fourth quarter, the average system spot price for power in Nord Pool was EUR 36.6 (50.8) per megawatt-hour (MWh). The Finnish and Swedish area prices were above the system price level, at EUR 40.0 (52.4) per MWh in Finland and EUR 40.0 (52.8) per MWh in Sweden. In 2009, the average system spot price for power in Nord Pool was EUR 35.0 (44.7) per MWh. The average Finnish area price was EUR 37.0 (51.0), and the Swedish area price was EUR 37.0 (51.1) per MWh. In Germany, the average spot price for the fourth quarter of 2009 was higher than in the Nordic area and was EUR 38.8 (68.0) per MWh. This resulted in a net export from the Nordic area to Germany. In Germany, the average spot price for the year 2009 was EUR 38.9 (65.8) per MWh. Market coupling between Denmark and Germany was relaunched on 9 November 2009. RUSSIA According to preliminary statistics, electricity demand in Russia in 2009 decreased by approximately 5.0% compared to 2008. Russia's overall electricity demand in the fourth quarter of 2009 increased by approximately 1.3% compared to the corresponding period of the previous year. OAO Fortum operates in the Tyumen and Chelyabinsk areas, which belong to the Urals price zone. Electricity consumption in 2009 in the Urals region decreased by about 6% compared to the previous year. In the Tyumen area, where industrial production is dominated by oil and gas industries, electricity demand in 2009 was at the same level as in 2008. Electricity demand in the Chelyabinsk area, which is dominated by the metals industry, is showing signs of picking up: The year-on-year increase in the fourth quarter was approximately 6% while demand decreased by approximately 12% in the third quarter. The average electricity spot price, excluding capacity price, in the European and Urals part of Russia increased to RUB 728 per MWh from RUB 597 per MWh in the fourth quarter of 2008. The average electricity spot price, excluding capacity price, in the European and Urals part of Russia in 2009 was 666 (708) RUB per MWh. The regulated electricity prices increased from a year ago. The capacity prices are still mainly regulated and were, on average, higher than a year ago. The share of power sold on the liberalised market was increased from 50% to 60% at the beginning of 2010. Total power and heat generation figures Fortum's total power generation during 2009 was 65.3 (64.2) TWh, of which 48.1 (51.6) TWh was in the Nordic countries, representing 13% (13%) of the total Nordic electricity consumption. Fortum's total heat production during 2009 was 48.8 (40.3) TWh, of which 19.0 (20.8) TWh was in the Nordic countries. The increase in the total power and heat generation volumes is due to the inclusion of OAO Fortum, which has been consolidated from the beginning of April 2008. The decrease in Nordic hydropower generation was mainly due to lower precipitation and inflows into Nordic water reservoirs during the first half of 2009. Year 2008 was an exceptionally good hydro year. The decrease in Fortum's Nordic nuclear power generation is mainly due to the long upgrade outage in Oskarshamn 3 in 2009. At year end, Fortum's total power generating capacity was 13,940 (13,573) megawatts (MW), of which 10,981 (10,643) MW was in the Nordic countries. At year end, Fortum's total heat production capacity was 24,330 (24,263) MW, of which 8,414 (8,448) MW was in the Nordic countries. Fortum's total power and heat generation figures are presented below.

Fortum's CO2 emissions In 2009, approximately 91% (92%) of the power generated by Fortum within the EU countries was CO2-free. Fortum's total CO2 emissions subject to the EU's emissions trading scheme (ETS) in 2009 amounted to 7.7 (7.2) million tonnes of CO2. Fortum's total annual CO2 allowance allocation for its power and heat plants is approximately 5.5 million tonnes per year during 2009-2012. Fortum's target in the EU countries is to decrease its emissions in power generation to less than 80 g/kWh by 2020 as a five-year average. In heat production, Fortum aims at reducing the specific emissions in each country by at least 10% from 2006 until 2020. Outside the EU, Fortum is committed to increasing energy efficiency, thus reducing specific emissions. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total CO2 emissions of Fortum | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | | (million tonnes) | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total emissions | 6.6 | 6.8 | 22.0 | 17.6 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Emissions subject to ETS | 2.7 | 2.7 | 7.7 | 7.2 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Free emissions allocation | - | - | 5.5 | 5.9 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Emissions in Russia | 3.9 | 4.0 | 13.8 | 9.8 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Specific CO2 emissions of Fortum | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | | (g/kWh) | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Specific emissions within ETS | 41 | 41 | 64 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FORTUM'S NEW BUSINESS STRUCTURE In October 2009 Fortum restructured its organisation into four business divisions and four staff functions in order to increase the organisation's efficiency, performance accountability and simplicity. The new business divisions are Power, Heat, Russia, and Electricity Solutions and Distribution. The Electricity Solutions and Distribution (ESD) consists of business areas Distribution and Markets. The reportable segments under IFRS have been renamed correspondingly. DIVISION REVIEWS Power The Power Division consists of Fortum's power generation, physical operation and trading, operation, maintenance and development of power plants as well as expert services for power producers. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | EUR million | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sales | 679 | 736 | 2,596 | 2,892 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - power sales | 637 | 638 | 2,414 | 2,566 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - other sales | 42 | 98 | 182 | 326 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Operating profit | 330 | 470 | 1,335 | 1,599 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable operating profit | 394 | 378 | 1,469 | 1,528 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Net assets (at period-end) | | | 5,512 | 5,331 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Return on net assets, % | | | 23.9 | 29.6 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable return on net assets, | | | 26.6 | 28.0 | | % | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Gross investments | 34 | 49 | 154 | 134 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Number of employees | | | 3,063 | 3,520 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The division's power generation during the fourth quarter of 2009 amounted to 11.1 (11.4) TWh in the Nordic countries. In 2009, the division's power generation in the Nordic countries was 43.7 (46.9) TWh. Approximately 97% (97%) of that was CO2-free. The decrease in Nordic hydropower generation was mainly due to lower precipitation and inflows into Nordic water reservoirs during the first half of 2009. The decrease in Nordic nuclear power generation is mainly due to the extensive power increase and safety modernisation outage in Oskarshamn 3, which started at the beginning of March 2009 and ended in mid December 2009. Oskarshamn 3's capacity has increased by ~250 MW, of which Fortum's share is approximately 110 MW. Currently, the increased capacity is only partly available due to the ongoing testing period. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Power generation by source, | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | | TWh | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Hydropower, Nordic | 5.9 | 6.0 | 22.1 | 22.9 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Nuclear power, Nordic | 5.1 | 5.3 | 21.4 | 23.7 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Thermal power, Nordic | 0.1 | 0.1 | 0.2 | 0.3 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total in the Nordic countries | 11.1 | 11.4 | 43.7 | 46.9 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Thermal in other countries | 0.3 | 0.3 | 1.2 | 1.0 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total | 11.4 | 11.7 | 44.9 | 47.9 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Nordic sales volume, TWh | 12.4 | 12.8 | 48.8 | 52.1 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | of which pass-through sales | 1.0 | 0.8 | 3.6 | 3.7 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sales price, EUR/MWh | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Power's Nordic power price* | 51.5 | 49.1 | 49.8 | 49.3 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * For the Power Division in the Nordic countries, excluding pass-through sales. During the fourth quarter of 2009, the average system spot price in Nord Pool was EUR 36.6 per MWh, while Finnish and Swedish area prices were above the system price level, at EUR 40.0 per MWh. During the same period, Power's achieved Nordic power price was EUR 51.5 (49.1) per MWh. The division's Nordic sales volume without pass-through items was 11.4 (12.0) TWh. During 2009, the average system spot price in Nord Pool was EUR 35.0 per MWh, while the Finnish and Swedish area prices were EUR 37.0 per MWh. Power's achieved Nordic power price was EUR 49.8 per MWh, approximately the same level as last year. In the fourth quarter, Power's comparable operating profit was slightly higher than in the corresponding period last year. Power's achieved Nordic power price increased. Both hydro and nuclear generation volumes were slightly lower than in the corresponding period last year. In 2009, Power's comparable operating profit was lower than in the corresponding period last year. This was mainly due to the lower hydro and nuclear generation volumes. The translation effect from the lower SEK was approximately EUR -70 million in the division's 2009 comparable operating profit. In February 2009, Fortum submitted to the Government of Finland an application for a decision-in-principle concerning the construction of a new nuclear power plant unit in Loviisa. Fortum is one of three applicants applying for the decision-in-principle. The Government is expected to make its proposal to the Parliament during 2010. Fortum is a shareholder in Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO), a nuclear generation company operating two nuclear power units in Olkiluoto, Finland. TVO is in the process of building a third unit, Olkiluoto 3. Based on the latest progress report submitted by the plant supplier, AREVA-Siemens, TVO has estimated that the start-up of the plant may be postponed beyond June 2012, which was the schedule confirmed by the supplier. In late March, TVO's shareholders committed to providing a EUR 300 million subordinated shareholder's loan to TVO. Fortum's share of this commitment is at maximum EUR 75 million. Heat The Heat Division consists of combined heat and power (CHP) generation, district heating activities and business-to-business heating solutions in the Nordic countries and other parts of the Baltic Rim. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | EUR million | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sales | 457 | 463 | 1,394 | 1,466 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - heat sales | 340 | 354 | 1,054 | 1,120 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - power sales | 84 | 76 | 224 | 228 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - other sales | 33 | 33 | 116 | 118 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Operating profit | 108 | 155 | 248 | 307 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable operating profit | 103 | 109 | 227 | 250 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Net assets (at period-end) | | | 3,786 | 3,468 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Return on net assets, % | | | 7.8 | 8.9 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable return on net assets, | | | 7.2 | 7.3 | | % | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Gross investments | 101 | 144 | 359 | 431 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Number of employees | | | 2,246 | 2,318 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The division's heat sales during 2009 amounted to 22.9 (24.9) TWh, most of which was generated in the Nordic countries. During the same period, power sales from CHP production totalled 4.4 (4.7) TWh. The decrease in the sales volume is mainly due to the sale of a CHP company in Jyväskylä, Finland, at the end of 2008 and lower demand from industrial customers. The Heat Division's fourth-quarter comparable operating profit was EUR 103 million, EUR 6 million lower than the corresponding period last year. The decrease was mainly due to the lower Nord Pool power price and translation effects from a weaker SEK. Cold weather increased heating volumes. In 2009, the division's comparable operating profit was EUR 227 million, EUR 23 million lower than the year before. The decrease was mainly due to the EUR -17 million translation effect from a weaker SEK and PLN, mainly in the first half of the year. Fortum started the commercial operation of the new CHP unit in Espoo, Finland, during the fourth quarter. The construction of the CHP plants in Czestochowa, Poland, and Pärnu, Estonia, proceeded. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Heat sales by area, TWh | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Finland | 2.7 | 3.1 | 8.0 | 10.8 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sweden | 3.2 | 3.0 | 9.8 | 9.1 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Poland | 1.4 | 1.3 | 3.7 | 3.6 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Other countries | 0.5 | 0.5 | 1.4 | 1.4 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total | 7.8 | 7.9 | 22.9 | 24.9 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Power sales, TWh | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total | 1.6 | 1.4 | 4.4 | 4.7 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Electricity Solutions and Distribution Distribution Fortum owns and operates distribution and regional networks and distributes electricity to a total of 1.6 million customers in Sweden, Finland, Norway and Estonia. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | EUR million | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sales | 227 | 206 | 800 | 789 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - distribution network | 192 | 175 | 685 | 669 | | transmission | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - regional network transmission | 21 | 18 | 75 | 77 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - other sales | 14 | 13 | 40 | 43 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Operating profit | 81 | 61 | 263 | 248 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable operating profit | 80 | 63 | 262 | 248 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Net assets (at period-end) | | | 3,299 | 3,032 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Return on net assets, % | | | 8.7 | 8.1 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable return on net assets, | | | 8.6 | 8.2 | | % | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Gross investments | 63 | 93 | 193 | 296 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Number of employees | | | 1,088 | 1,336 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The volume of distribution and regional network transmission during the fourth quarter of 2009 totalled 7.5 (7.2) TWh and 4.4 (4.5) TWh, respectively. In 2009, the volume of distribution and regional network transmission totalled 25.9 (25.8) TWh and 16.4 (17.7) TWh, respectively. Electricity transmission via the regional distribution network totalled 13.6 (14.8) TWh in Sweden and 2.8 (2.9) TWh in Finland. The comparable operating profit of the Distribution business area was EUR 80 million in the fourth quarter, EUR 17 million higher than in the corresponding period of the previous year. In the fourth quarter of 2009 sales were higher due to colder weather than in the corresponding quarter of 2008. The result in 2008 was burdened by AMM implementation-related costs in the Swedish operations. The comparable operating profit of the Distribution business area was EUR 262 million in 2009, EUR 14 million higher than the previous year, though the 2009 results were somewhat affected by a negative translation effect from weaker SEK. The new Swedish legislation on monthly meter reading came into effect on 1 July 2009. In order to meet the new requirements, Fortum has replaced 844,000 electricity meters with new smart meters. In August 2009, a contract for the automatic meter management in Finland was signed with service provider Telvent. The total value of the investment is approximately EUR 170 million over a period of nine years. The investment includes the purchase of the smart meters, installation, operation and development of the system as well as the related services. The new Finnish legislation on meter reading requirements will be effective as of 1 January 2014. In October 2009, the Swedish Energy Market Inspectorate (EI) delivered an investigation regarding the handling of capital costs and basic principles of the new Ex-Ante regulation model, and launched principles for the intermediate regulation for the period 2008-2011. The formal decision regarding the Ex-Ante regulation in Sweden starting from 2012 was made by the Swedish Parliament in June 2009. In the new regulation, network pricing will be determined in advance. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Volume of distributed | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | | electricity in distribution | | | | | | network, TWh | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sweden | 3.9 | 3.8 | 14.0 | 14.0 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Finland | 2.8 | 2.6 | 9.4 | 9.3 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Norway | 0.7 | 0.7 | 2.3 | 2.3 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Estonia | 0.1 | 0.1 | 0.2 | 0.2 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total | 7.5 | 7.2 | 25.9 | 25.8 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Number of electricity distribution | 31 Dec 2009 | 31 Dec 2008 | | customers by area, thousands | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sweden | 895 | 877 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Finland | 611 | 606 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Other countries | 123 | 123 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total | 1,629 | 1,606 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Markets Markets business area is responsible for retail sales of electricity to a total of 1.2 million private and business customers as well as to other electricity retailers in Sweden, Finland and Norway.

In 2009, Markets' sales volume was 30.0 (36.6) TWh. The decrease in the sales volume continued mainly due to the lower consumption by business customers and discontinued contracts with some large business customers. The customer churn in the consumer market segment increased clearly during 2009. The improvement in Markets' performance in 2009 was based on Markets' successful turnaround programme, including the launch of the new pricing model in the Consumer Market segment, renegotiated sales agreements in the Business Customer segment, renewed hedging operations and tighter cost controls. Markets' fourth-quarter comparable operating profit continued to improve from a year ago. Russia The Russia Division consists of power and heat generation and sales in Russia. It includes OAO Fortum and Fortum's over 25% holding in TGC-1. OAO Fortum is accounted for as a subsidiary and fully consolidated from 1 April 2008. TGC-1 is an associated company and accounted for using the equity method. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | EUR million | IV/09 | IV/08 | 2009 | 2008 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sales | 194 | 197 | 623 | 489 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - power sales | 109 | 115 | 390 | 332 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - heat sales | 76 | 75 | 219 | 141 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | - other sales | 9 | 7 | 14 | 16 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | EBITDA | 27 | 3 | 49 | -24 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Operating profit | 7 | -19 | -26 | -91 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable operating profit | 7 | -20 | -26 | -92 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Net assets (at period-end) | | | 2,248 | 2,205 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Return on net assets, % | | | -0.3 | -3.7 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Comparable return on net assets, % | | | -0.3 | -3.8 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Gross investments | 98 | 126 | 218 | 1,748 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Number of employees* | | | 4,090 | 7,262 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * In January 2009, around 1,100 persons working at OAO Fortum were transferred internally from the Russia Division to the Power Division. OAO Fortum operates in the well-developed industrial regions of the Urals and in oil-producing western Siberia. The division's power sales during the fourth quarter of 2009 amounted to 5.3 (5.6) TWh. During the same period, heat sales totalled 8.9 (8.6) TWh. In 2009, the power sales were 19.5 TWh (14.8 TWh in Q2-Q4/2008) and the heat sales 25.6 TWh (15.3 TWh in Q2-Q4/2008). The division sold approximately 2/3 of its power in Tyumen and other oil- and gas-producing areas in the OAO Fortum region. The remaining 1/3 of its volumes were sold in the Chelyabinsk region, where the metals industry dominates wholesale electricity demand. During the fourth quarter of 2009, OAO Fortum sold 37% of its electricity production at the liberalised electricity price. For the full year 2009, the share of electricity sold at the liberalised price was 34%. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Key electricity, | IV/09 | IV/08 | Change | 2009 | 2008 | Change% | | capacity and gas prices | | | % | | | | | for OAO Fortum | | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Electricity spot price | 693 | 540 | 28 | 633 | 672 | -6 | | (market price), Urals | | | | | | | | hub, RUB/MWh | | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Average regulated | 536 | 476 | 13 | 533 | 475 | 12 | | electricity price for | | | | | | | | OAO FORTUM, RUB/MWh | | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Average regulated | 186 | 160.8 | 16 | 187.3 | 167.8 | 12 | | capacity price, | | | | | | | | tRUB/MW/month | | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Average limit gas price | 1,937 | 1,560 | 24 | 1,782 | 1,560 | 14 | | in | | | | | | | | Urals region, | | | | | | | | RUB/1000 m3 | | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The division booked a comparable operating profit of EUR 7 (-20) million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The improvement was due to OAO Fortum's efficiency improvement programme and a higher electricity sales margin. In 2009, the Russia Division's comparable operating profit, EUR -26 million, was an improvement of EUR 66 million over the previous year. The increase mainly stems from OAO Fortum's efficiency improvement programme and a higher electricity sales margin. OAO Fortum figures have been consolidated from the beginning of April 2008. OAO Fortum's business is typically very seasonal: Its results usually are strongest during the first and last quarters of the year. The Russian power sector reform is proceeding. Starting 1 January 2009, 30% of all produced power in Russia was sold on the competitive market. The share increased to 50% at the beginning of July 2009 and further to 60% from the beginning of January 2010. The wholesale power market is expected to be fully liberalised from the beginning of 2011. The rules for the long-term capacity market are currently under consideration by the Russian government and a decision is expected before the end of 2010. OAO Fortum's efficiency improvement programme is proceeding according to plans. The annual efficiency improvements are expected to be approximately EUR 100 million in 2011. Capital expenditures, divestments and investments in shares Capital expenditures and investments in shares in 2009 totalled EUR 929 (2,624) million. Investments, excluding acquisitions, were EUR 862 (1,108) million. In 2010, Fortum expects to commission new power/heat capacity as follows: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | | Type | Capacity | Capacity | Available | | | | electricity, | heat, MW | | | | | MW | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Heat | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Częstochowa, | CHP bio, | 65 | 120 | Q3/2010 | | Poland | coal | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Pärnu, Estonia | CHP bio, | 20 | 45 | end of 2010 | | | peat | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Power | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Hydro | Hydropower | 20-30 | | 2010 | | refurbishment | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Russia | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Tyumen 1 | CCGT, gas | 190 | | Q3/2010 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Tobolsk | CCGT, gas | 210 | | Q3/2010 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Chelyabinsk 3 | CCGT, gas | 220 | | Q4/2010 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- POWER Fortum and the Norwegian Hafslund Infratek ASA combined their businesses of construction and operating of infrastructure in Sweden, Finland and Norway as of 15 January 2009. HEAT Heat continued its development programme to ensure future competitiveness and an optimal asset portfolio. A new CHP plant in Tartu, Estonia, was taken into commercial use in late March 2009 and a new CHP plant in Espoo was taken into use in December 2009. The construction of the new CHP plants in Czestochowa, Poland and in Pärnu, Estonia, proceeded. In August Fortum sold its CHP plant in Kokkola, Finland, to the city of Kokkola. The transaction price was around EUR 24 million. In December, Fortum agreed to sell its shares in the Swedish gas transmission company Swedegas AB. The transaction will take place in early 2010. DISTRIBUTION The EU's third energy market package entered into force in early September 2009. One of the consequences is that Fortum will have to divest its 25% ownership in the Finnish electricity transmission system operator Fingrid Oyj by early 2012. Consequently, Fortum is investigating alternatives for the sale of the Fingrid shares. Currently Fortum expects the sales process of Fingrid shares to take place during 2010. RUSSIA OAO Fortum's ongoing investment programme will increase its power capacity from the current ~3,000 MW to 5,300 MW. The value for the remaining part of the programme, calculated at year-end 2009 exchange rates, is estimated to be EUR 1.8 billion from January 2010 onwards. The Russian Government is currently reviewing the investment programmes of the generating companies in light of the decreased power demand. Fortum has confirmed its commitment to fulfil OAO Fortum's investment programme. However, the potential postponement of some projects by 1-3 years is currently under review with a favourable outlook. Financing At year end, the interest-bearing net debt stood at EUR 5,969 (year-end 2008: EUR 6,179) million, resulting in a total decrease in net debt during the year of EUR 210 million. Cash flow during the year was strong with net cash from operating activities amounting to EUR 2,264 (2,002) million. Cash generated was primarily used for investing activities and dividend payments. Net cash used for investment activities in 2009 was EUR 974 (2,282) million, and dividend payments amounted to EUR 888 (1,198) million. Net debt to EBITDA for the last twelve months was 2.6 (2.5). The Group's net financial expenses in 2009 were EUR 167 (239) million. The decrease in financial expenses is mainly attributable to lower average interest rates in 2009 compared to 2008. Net financial expenses include a fair value loss on financial instruments of EUR 1 million (2008: fair value loss 11). The average interest rate on Fortum's interest-bearing debt (including derivatives) for 2009 was 3.7% (5.3%). Group liquidity remained strong. Year-end liquid funds totalled EUR 890 (1,321) million, of which EUR 632 (1,020) million was cash held by OAO Fortum and earmarked for the company's investment programme. In addition, the Group had a total of approximately EUR 2.9 (2.3) billion available for drawing under committed credit facilities. During the year Fortum raised new long-term financing in excess of EUR 2 billion, through the approximately EUR 1.6 billion bond issuance under Fortum's Euro Medium Term Note Programme, and bilateral long-term loans in excess of EUR 0.5 billion. The proceeds of these new financings were used to refinance maturing debt in 2009 as well as to partially repay loan facilities maturing in 2011 and approximately RUB 8 billion (EUR 180 million) of bonds due in 2010 and 2013. Short-term financing (mainly the issuance of commercial paper) decreased to EUR 308 (520) million at year end. During the year Fortum Corporation's long-term credit rating from Standard and Poor's was, following a change in their rating methodology of “Government-related entities”, increased from “A- to “A” (stable). The long-term credit rating from Moody's was at year end “A2” (stable). Shares and share capital In 2009, a total of 580.9 (628.2) million Fortum Corporation shares, totalling EUR 9,244 million, were traded on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki. Fortum's market capitalisation, calculated using the closing quotation of the last trading day of the year, was EUR 16,852 million. The highest quotation of Fortum Corporation shares on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki in 2009 was EUR 19.20, the lowest EUR 12.60, and the volume-weighted average EUR 15.95. The closing quotation on the last trading day of the year was EUR 18.97 (15.23). In addition to NASDAQ OMX Helsinki, Fortum shares were traded on several alternative market places, primarily at Chi-X Europe and Turquoise. In 2009, a total of 49.1 million Fortum Corporation shares were traded at Chi-X Europe and 17.8 million Fortum Corporation shares were traded at Turquoise. At the end of 2009, Fortum Corporation did not own its own shares. At the end of 2009, Fortum Corporation's share capital was EUR 3,046,185,953 and the total number of registered shares was 888,367,045. The subscription period for the last remaining option scheme ended on 1 May 2009 and thus no further shares can be subscribed for and registered under the share option schemes. At year end, the Finnish state's holding in Fortum was 50.8%. The proportion of nominee registrations and direct foreign shareholders was 31.0%. The Board of Directors has no unused authorisations from the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders to issue convertible loans or bonds with warrants or to issue new shares. Group personnel The number of employees at the end of the period was 11,613 (2008: 15,579), of which 11,332 (2008: 15,264) were permanent employees. The outsourcing of certain infrastructure service functions to Infratek ASA in January 2009 reduced the number of people in Power and Distribution. In the first quarter of 2009, around 1,100 persons working at OAO Fortum were transferred internally from the Russia division to the Power division. OAO Fortum discontinued its operation and maintenance contract with the city of Tyumen for the operation of municipal heat networks as of 1 July 2009. This has reduced the number of OAO Fortum employees by approximately 750. The number of employees in the parent company, Fortum Corporation, at year end totalled 409 (2008: 434). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Number of employees, 31 Dec. | 11,613 | 15,579 | 8,303 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Average number of employees | 13,278 | 14,077 | 8,304 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Total amount of employee costs, EUR | 491 | 587 | 495 | | million | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Research and development Fortum's R&D activities are geared towards the company's long-term goal to be carbon dioxide-free. Activities are based on building networks and partnerships with leading research organisations, engineering companies, and equipment and plant suppliers. Fortum also conducts in-house research and development in strategically significant key areas. In 2009, Fortum's R&D activities focused strongly on the development of a nuclear combined heat and power (CHP) plant concept, smart grids and electric vehicles. Important steps were taken also in carbon capture and storage activities. Replacing coal- and natural gas-fired CHP-production in the Helsinki metropolitan area with district heat produced at the Loviisa 3 nuclear power plant unit could reduce Finland's CO2 emissions by 4 million tonnes per year. Fortum worked to develop concepts for steam extraction from the turbines together with turbine manufacturers, studied options for heat transport, modelled the district heat transport system and with the Apros simulation software, analysed safety issues associated with the system. Smart grids became an important new priority in Fortum's R&D in 2009. A smart grid is an electricity network that can intelligently integrate the actions of all users connected to it - electricity generators, consumers and those that do both - in order to efficiently deliver sustainable, economic and secure electricity. Fortum started several concrete development projects in the realm of smart grids and electricity in transportation during the year. Fortum and TVO announced cooperation with Siemens Energy and with Maersk Oil and Maersk Tankers in the field of carbon capture and storage. Siemens Energy has been selected as the capture technology partner for the FINNCAP - Meri-Pori Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project. The partners wish to combine carbon capture at the Meri-Pori power plant with CO2 transportation by Maersk Tankers' vessels and Maersk Oil's geological storage. The group's total R&D expenditure in 2009 was EUR 30 (27) million. Fortum's R&D expenditure amounts to 0.5% of sales (0.5% in 2008) and 0.9% (0.8%) of total expenses. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | R&D of Fortum | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | R&D expenditure, EUR million | 30 | 27 | 21 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | R&D expenditure, % of sales | 0.5 | 0.5 | 0.5 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | R&D expenditure, % of total expenses | 0.9 | 0.8 | 0.8 | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Events after period under review In January 2010, Fortum acquired the combined heat and power plant in the city of Nokia, Finland. The share of produced wholesale power sold on the competitive market in Russia was increased from 50% to 60% from the beginning of January 2010. Outlook KEY DRIVERS AND RISKS The key factor influencing Fortum's business performance is the wholesale price of electricity. Key drivers behind wholesale price development are the supply-demand balance, fuel and CO2 emissions allowance prices as well as the hydrological situation. The exchange rates of the Swedish krona and Russian rouble also affect Fortum's financials. The balance sheet translation effects from potential changes in currency exchange rates are booked in Fortum's equity. Fortum's financial results are exposed to a number of strategic, financial and operational risks. For further details on Fortum's risks and risk management, see Fortum's Operating and Financial Review and Financial Statements for 2008 and Fortum's web site. The annual report for 2009 will be published before the end of week 9. MARKET DEMAND The recession has impacted the markets in which Fortum operates. This may increase Fortum's counterparty risk. The electricity consumption in the Nordic countries and Russia may continue to be depressed. Fortum currently expects Nordic power demand to recover back to the 2008 level by 2012-2014. Electricity will continue to gain a higher share of the total energy consumption. RUSSIA In Russia, one of the key assumptions in the OAO Fortum acquisition is the continuation of the Russian power sector reform. As planned, the share of power sold at a competitive price was increased from 30% to 50% on 1 July 2009 and from 50% to 60% at the beginning of January 2010. The share is planned to be increased from 60% to 80% at the beginning of July 2010. The wholesale power market is expected to be fully liberalised by 2011. The rules for the long-term capacity market are currently under consideration by the Russian government and a decision is expected before the end of the year 2010. The average limit gas price (regulated gas price) for the first quarter of 2010 will increase by 15%. The planned increase for the full year 2010 is 24%. The regulated electricity price is indexed to the regulated gas price and inflation on an annual basis. OAO Fortum is committed and contractually obligated to a significant investment programme, amounting to approximately EUR 1.8 billion for 2010 and onwards. The Russian Government is currently reviewing the investment programmes of the generating companies in light of the decreased power demand stemming from the current recession. Fortum has confirmed its commitment to fulfil OAO Fortum's investment programme. However, the potential postponement of some projects by 1-3 years is currently under review with a favourable outlook. Annual efficiency improvements are expected to be approximately EUR 100 million in 2011. CAPITAL EXPENDITURE Fortum expects its annual capital expenditure in the next 4-5 years to be within a range of EUR 0.8-1.2 billion. HEDGING In late January 2010, the electricity forward price in Nord Pool for the rest of 2010 was around EUR 44 per MWh. The electricity forward price for 2011 was around EUR 42 per MWh and for 2012 around EUR 41 per MWh. At the same time, the future quotations for coal (ICE Rotterdam) for the rest of 2010 were around USD 84 per tonne and the market price for CO2 emissions allowances (EUA) for 2010 was about EUR 13 per tonne. In late January 2010, Nordic water reservoirs were about 14 TWh below the long-term average, and 6 TWh below the corresponding level of 2009. Fortum Power's achieved Nordic power price typically depends on e.g. the hedge ratio, hedge price, spot prices, availability and utilisation of Fortum's flexible production portfolio and currency fluctuations. Excluding the potential effects from the changes in the power generation mix, a 1 EUR/MWh change in Power's achieved Nordic sales price results in an approximately EUR 50 million change in Fortum's annual operating profit. At the end of December 2009, Fortum had hedged approximately 70% of the Power Division's estimated Nordic electricity sales volume for the year 2010 at approximately EUR 44 per MWh. For the calendar year 2011, approximately 40% of the division's estimated Nordic electricity sales volume was hedged at approximately EUR 42 per MWh. The reported hedge ratios may vary significantly, depending on Fortum's actions on the electricity derivatives markets. Hedges are mainly financial contracts, most of them Nord Pool forwards or standardised futures, consisting of several types of products and maturities. The first and last quarters of the year are usually the strongest quarters for the power and heat businesses. Fortum's results in 2009 were good, despite the challenging economic environment. The company has a flexible, cost-efficient and climate-benign generation portfolio. Fortum's financial position and liquidity are strong. Dividend distribution proposal The parent company's distributable equity as of 31 December 2009 amounted to EUR 4,052 million. Since the end of the financial period, there have been no material changes in the financial position of the Company. The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that Fortum Corporation pay a cash dividend of EUR 1.00 per share for 2009, totalling EUR 888 million based on the number of registered shares as of 2 February 2010.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2) Accounting effect of the last stock option program (2002B) upon | | | ending of the subscription period on 1 May 2009. | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Starting from Q1 2009 Fortum has implemented IAS 1 (revised) Presentation of financial statements, see Note 2 Accounting policies. The consolidated statement of changes in total equity has changed format. Comparison numbers have been reclassified to be in line with the new format. Translation differences*) Translation differences impacted equity attributable to owners of the parent company with EUR 33 million during 2009 (2008: -703) including net effect from SEK, NOK and RUB amounting to EUR 27 million in 2009 (2008: -680). Part of the translation differences is arising from the NOK effect in fair valuation of Hafslund's REC shares, EUR 22 million (2008: -148), which is shown together with the change in fair value in OCI items associated companies. Cash flow hedges The impact on equity attributable to owners of the parent from fair valuation of cash flow hedges, EUR -296 million during 2009 (2008: 441), mainly relates to cash flow hedges hedging electricity price for future transactions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM | | | | | FINANCIAL STATEMENTS | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 1. BASIS OF PREPARATION | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Interim Statement is based on the 2009 Financial Statements approved by the Board and the auditors on 2 February 2010. The condensed interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard (IAS) 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as adopted by the EU. The condensed interim financial report should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2008. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 2. ACCOUNTING POLICIES | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The same accounting policies and presentation have been followed in these condensed interim financial statements as were applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2008, except for the effects of the adoption of the standards described below: • IAS 23 (amendment) Borrowing costs The revised standard requires an entity to 35inalizati borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of a qualifying asset as part of the cost of that asset. The option of immediately expensing those borrowing costs is removed. The adoption of the revised IAS 23 changed slightly Fortum's accounting policy for 35inalization borrowing costs as previously only borrowings costs meeting determined criteria were 35inalizatio. Fortum has applied the revised IAS 23 to qualifying assets for which 35inalization35n of borrowing costs commences on or after 1 January 2009. The change did not have a material effect on the reported results or financial position. • IAS 1 (revised) Presentation of financial statements IAS 1 (revised) changed the terminology and presentation of the income statement and the statement of changes in equity. The standard requires to separate changes in equity of an entity arising from transactions with owners from other changes in equity. The adoption of the standard had no impact on Fortum's reported results or financial position. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 3. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES | | | | | | AND JUDGEMENTS | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The preparation of interim financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Annual results may differ from these estimates. In preparing these interim financial statements, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2008. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 4.

INCOME TAX EXPENSE | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tax rate according to the income statement for 2009 was 17.4% (2008: 13.7%). The tax rate for the year is higher than in 2008 mainly due to the impact of the positive one time-effect of EUR 113 million in 2008 from revaluating the deferred taxes due to the decreased tax rates in Sweden and Russia. The tax rate for the full year 2009, excluding the impact of share of profits of associated companies and joint ventures, non- taxable capital gains and other one-time items was 18.5% (2008: 22.1%). The tax rate used in the income statement is always impacted by the fact that share of profits of associates and joint ventures is recorded based on Fortum's share of profits after tax. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 10.

The liability regarding the Loviisa nuclear power plant is calculated according to the Nuclear Energy Act and was decided by Ministry of Employment and the Economy in January 2010. The liability is based on an updated cost estimate, which is done every year, and on a technical plan, which is made every third year. Following the annual update, the discounted liability decreased due to updated cost estimate and timing for the disposal of the spent fuel. The technical plan was updated last time in 2007, and the new technical plan with updated cost estimates is expected in 2010. The legal liability at the end of 2009, decided by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy is EUR 913 million. The provision in the balance sheet related to nuclear waste management is based on cash flows for future costs which uses the same basis as the legal liability. The carrying value of the nuclear provision, calculated according to IAS37, has increased by EUR 4 million compared to 31 December 2008, totalling EUR 570 million as of 31 December 2009. The nuclear provision decreased by EUR 18 million during the last quarter 2009 due to the updated cost estimate. The main reason for the difference between the carrying value of the provision and the legal liability is the fact that the legal liability is not discounted to net present value. Fortum's share in the State Nuclear Waste Management Fund Fortum contributes funds to the State Nuclear Waste Management Fund based on the yearly funding obligation target decided by the governmental authorities in January each year in connection with the decision of size of the legal liability. The funding obligation target based on the decided legal liability and approved periodising of the payments to the Fund is EUR 830 million. The Fund is from an IFRS perspective overfunded with EUR 216 million, since Fortum's share of the Fund as of 31 December 2009 is EUR 786 million and the carrying value in the balance sheet is EUR 570 million. Effects to comparable operating profit and operating profit Following the updated cost estimate, Fortum had in Q4 2009 a one-time effect to Comparable operating profit of EUR 7 million in the Power segment mainly due to lower nuclear waste management costs related to already spent fuel. In Q4 2008 a one-time effect of EUR - 3 million was reported following the updated cost estimate. Any cost increase which is related to already spent fuel is always recognised immediately in Comparable operating profit. Operating profit in Power segment is affected by the accounting principle for Fortum's share of the Finnish Nuclear Waste Management Fund, since the carrying value of the Fund in Fortum's balance sheet can in maximum be equal to the amount of the provisions according to IFRS. As long as the Fund is overfunded from an IFRS perspective, the effects to operating profit from this adjustment will be positive if the provisions increase more than the Fund and negative if actual value of the fund increases more than the provisions. This accounting effect is not included in Comparable operating profit in Fortum financial reporting, see Other items effecting comparability in Note 4. Fortum had an effect from this adjustment in Q4 2009 of EUR -33 million, compared to EUR -12 million in Q4 2008. The cumulative effect 2009 was EUR -59 million compared to EUR -19 million in 2008. Associated companies Fortum has minority shareholdings in associated Finnish and Swedish nuclear production companies. Fortum has for these companies accounted for its share of the effects from nuclear related assets and provisions according to Fortum accounting principles. Fortum has received at year-end updated cash flow information for its nuclear associated companies, Teollisuuden Voima Oyj, OKG AB and Forsmarks Kraftgrupp AB. Based on the updated cost estimates, the effect in share of profits was EUR -13 million in 2009 which included EUR -5 million due to decrease of the carrying value of the Finnish Nuclear Waste Fund. In 2008, the effect in share of profits was EUR 42 million which included EUR +9 million due to the change of the carrying values of the Finnish (EUR -7 million) and Swedish Nuclear Waste Funds (EUR +16 million). The Finnish Nuclear Waste Fund is overfunded whereas the value of the Swedish Nuclear Fund is estimated to be slightly below the value of provisions at year-end 2009. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 17.

During Q1 2009 Fortum increased its borrowing from the Fund (see Note 15) and has therefore pledged additional Kemijoki shares as security. The value of the pledged shares amount to EUR 263 million (2008: 208 million) as of 31 December 2009 (and 31 December 2008 respectively). Pledged assets for other commitments Fortum has given real estate mortgages in Naantali and Inkoo power plants in Finland, total value of EUR 220 million, as a security to the State Nuclear Waste Management Fund for the uncovered part of the legal liability and unexpected events relating to future costs. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 18.

On the other hand finalisation of the automatic meter reading investment in Distribution Sweden, decline of the Russian rouble and progressing of the CHP plant investments in the Heat business in Finland, Estonia and Poland have decreased the capital commitments since 31 December 2008. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 20.

The decrease of EUR 41 million from 31 December 2008 refers mainly to changes in contractual obligations relating to Russia and Fortum's business in the UK and exchange rate changes. Guarantees on behalf of associated companies According to law, nuclear companies operating in Finland and Sweden shall give securities to the Finnish State Nuclear Waste Management Fund and the Swedish Nuclear Waste Fund respectively, to guarantee that sufficient funds exist to cover future expenses of decommissioning of power plant and disposal of spent fuel. The guarantee given on behalf of Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO) to the Finnish fund has decreased from EUR 70 million at year-end 2008 to EUR 67 million at 31 December 2009. The size of the guarantee is updated yearly in Q2, based on the decisions regarding legal liability and the funding target which takes place around year-end. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | 21. LEGAL ACTIONS AND OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Group companies Two subsidiaries of Fortum, Grangemouth CHP Limited and Fortum O&M (UK) Limited, are defendants in a court case regarding CO2 emission allowances in the High Court of Justice in London. Grangemouth CHP Limited is a party to an Electricity Supply Agreement with Ineos Manufacturing Scotland Limited, pursuant to which Grangemouth CHP Limited provides electricity from its CHP plant to the Grangemouth site in Scotland until April 2016. Ineos Manufacturing Scotland Limited claims that it is entitled to all of the emissions allowances allocated under the EU ETS scheme for CO2 emission allowance trading with respect to the CHP plant. Grangemouth CHP Limited denies this claim. The case was stayed in 2008, but the stay was lifted in late 2009. The court decision is likely to be rendered in late 2010 or early 2011. The Finnish Competition Authority gave on 2 June 2006 its conditional approval to the transaction by which Fortum acquired control in E.ON Finland Oyj. On 3 July 2006 Fortum appealed against the decision to the Market Court. In March 2008 the Finnish Market Court decision overruled the conditional decision given by the Finnish Competition Authority in June 2006 on the acquisition of E.ON Finland. In their ruling, the Market Court stated that the Finnish Competition Authority had no grounds for setting conditions, because Fortum cannot be considered to have a dominant position in the power generation and wholesale market. According to the Market Court, the relevant geographical market area in power generation and wholesale consist of at least Finland and Sweden. The Finnish Competition authority has appealed the decision to the Supreme Administrative Court. Associated companies In Finland, Fortum is participating in the country's fifth nuclear power plant unit, Olkiluoto 3, through the shareholding in Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO) with an approximately 25% share representing some 400 MW in capacity. In January 2009 the constructor TVO disclosed information, confirmed by the plant supplier, consortium AREVA-Siemens that the construction of the unit is delayed and the unit is estimated to start up in June 2012. In October 2009 TVO informed that the start-up of the plant may be postponed even beyond June 2012. TVO has requested a re-analysis of the time schedule from AREVA-Siemens. In June 2009, TVO informed that the arbitration filed in December 2008 by AREVA-Siemens, concerning Olkiluoto 3 delay and related costs amounted to EUR 1.0 billion.
