Metso Corporation's stock exchange release on October 25, 2012 at
1:00 p.m. local time 
Metso announced on September 1, 2011 that it intended reviewing
strategic alternatives for its Recycling business. As part of this
process, Metso evaluated both external and internal options. The
review concluded that integrating Recycling into the Mining and
Construction segment was the best possible alternative for creating
value for Metso. 
"We are committed to developing the Recycling business as part of our
Mining and Construction segment," says Matti Kaehkoenen, Metso
Corporation's President and CEO. "We believe that by integrating
Recycling in this way we will add value to the Recycling business and
for Metso generally in terms of volume growth, cost competitiveness,
and developing our overall offering. We are a forerunner and global
market leader in metal and waste recycling, and our goal is to
further strengthen our position here." 
Recycling will be integrated into Mining and Construction as of
December 1, 2012. Restated historical figures for Mining and
Construction including the Recycling business will be published later
this year. 
Recycling had net sales of EUR 212 million in 2011 and the business
currently employs approx. 660 people, mainly in Germany, the US and
Denmark.

the process industries, including mining, construction, pulp and
paper, power, and oil and gas. Our 30,000 professionals based in over
