other purposes, or be cancelled.

(including stock options) under Chapter 10, Section 1 of the Finnish
Companies Act in one or more issues during the effective period of
the authorization. The Board may issue either new shares or shares
held by the Company. 
The Board proposes that the authorization may be used to develop the
Company's capital structure, diversify the shareholder base, finance
or carry out acquisitions or other arrangements, settle the Company's
equity- based incentive plans, or for other purposes resolved by the
Board. 
It is proposed that the authorization includes the right for the
Board to resolve on all the terms and conditions of the issuance of
shares and such special rights, including to whom shares or special
rights may be issued as well as the consideration to be paid. The
authorization thereby includes the right to deviate from the
shareholders' pre-emptive rights within the limits set by law.

2016 and terminate the corresponding authorization granted by the
