as pledge of the Company's own shares as follows.

The amount of own shares to be repurchased and/or accepted as pledge shall not
exceed 10,000,000 shares, which corresponds  to approximately 6.7 per cent  of 
all the shares in the Company. Own shares can be repurchased otherwise than in
proportion to the shareholdings of the shareholders (directed repurchase). Own
shares can be repurchased  using the unrestricted equity  of the Company at  a 
price formed in public trading on the date of the repurchase or otherwise at a
price determined by the markets.

Own shares may be repurchased and/or  accepted as pledge in order to  develop 
the  Company's  capital  structure,   in  order  to   finance  or  carry   out 
acquisitions, investments or other business  transactions, or in order to  use 
the shares as part of the Company's incentive schemes.

The repurchased  shares  may be  held  for reissue,  canceled  or  transferred 
further.

The Board of Directors decides on all other matters related to the  repurchase 
and/or acceptance  as pledge  of own  shares. The  authorization is  effective 
until June 30, 2014  and it cancels  the authorization given  to the Board  of 
Directors by the General Meeting on March 29, 2012 to decide on the repurchase
of the Company's own shares.

16. Amendment of the Articles of Association

The Board of Directors proposes that  the following sentence limiting the  age 
of a person who can be elected to the Board of Directors shall be removed from
Section 4 of the Company's Articles of Association: "A person who has  reached 
the age of 68 years cannot be elected as a member of the Board of Directors".

17. Establishment of a Shareholders' Nomination Board

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to establish
a Shareholders' Nomination  Board to prepare  future proposals concerning  the 
election and remuneration  of the  members of the  Board of  Directors to  the 
General Meetings.  In  addition, the  Board  of Directors  proposes  that  the 
General Meeting adopts the Charter  of the Shareholders' Nomination Board  set 
out as an appendix to the proposal.

According to the proposal, the Nomination Board shall comprise representatives
nominated by the four largest shareholders of the company and the Chairman  of 
the Board of Directors. The right to nominate representatives shall be  vested 
with the four  shareholders of  the Company having  the largest  share of  the 
votes represented by  all the shares  in the Company  annually on September  1 
based on the company's shareholders'  register held by Euroclear Finland  Ltd. 
However, if  a shareholder  who  has distributed  his/her holdings  e.g.  into 
several funds and has an obligation  under the Finnish Securities Markets  Act 
to take  these holdings  into  account when  disclosing  changes in  share  of 
ownership makes a written request to such effect to the Chairman of the  Board 
of Directors  no later  than  on August  31,  such shareholder's  holdings  in 
several funds or  registers will  be combined  when calculating  the share  of 
votes which determines the nomination right. Should a shareholder not wish  to 
exercise his/her nomination right, the right shall be transferred to the  next 
largest shareholder who otherwise would not be entitled to nominate a member.

The Chairman of the Board of Directors shall convene the first meeting of  the 
Nomination Board and the  Nomination Board shall elect  a chairman from  among 
its members. The  Nomination Board  shall give its  proposal to  the Board  of 
Directors annually no later than January 31 preceding the next Annual  General 
Meeting. The term  of office of  the members of  the Nomination Board  expires 
annually after the new Nomination Board has been appointed.
