       Kesko Oyj : Change in Kesko Corporation's treasury share holding

KESKO CORPORATION STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 05.04.2013 AT 15.00 1(1)

Kesko has today transferred a total of 66,331 own B shares (KESBV) held by the
company as treasury shares to the about 150 Kesko management employees and
other named key persons included in the target group of the 2012 vesting
period of Kesko's three-year share-based compensation plan. In the same
context, 866 B shares, originally transferred to a person included in the
target group of the 2011 vesting period of the share-based compensation plan,
were returned to Kesko.

The share transfer is based on the decision of Kesko's Board or Directors,
announced in a stock exchange release on 5 February 2013, to grant own B
shares held by the company as treasury shares based on the fulfilment of the
vesting criteria of the 2012 vesting period.

After the transfer and return of shares, Kesko holds 543,126 own B shares as
treasury shares.
