HELSINKI, FINLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/13 --  Metso
Corporation's stock exchange release on May 15, 2013 at 3:35 p.m.
local time 
The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has given
an unfavorable decision to Metso holding Metso's patent invalid with
respect to the issues subject to the lawsuit Metso has carried out
against Powerscreen International Distribution Ltd (today known as
Terex GB Ltd), Terex Corporation, Emerald Equipment Systems, Inc. et
al. The case involves the Metso's lateral folding conveyor patent
rights related to mobile crushing and screening plants. The Court of
Appeals has reversed the favorable decisions to Metso given earlier
by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New
York in the case (see Metso's stock exchange releases December 7,
2010 and December 12, 2011). 
Metso will seek reversal of this Court of Appeals' decision by
motions and, as necessary, by further appeal. The final outcome of
the lawsuit would be expected within 2014. 
Metso has not booked any compensation in its financial results based
on the earlier decisions related to this case; and will do so, if
any, only when the final outcome of the lawsuit is clear, earliest in
2014.
