 Stonesoft Oyj : STONESOFT CORPORATION: MCAFEE HAS ANNOUNCED THE FINAL RESULT
OF THE TENDER OFFER AND EXTENDED THE OFFER PERIOD BY A SUBSEQUENT OFFER PERIOD

STONESOFT CORPORATION STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 25.6.2013 at 1:10 P.M.

STONESOFT CORPORATION: MCAFEE HAS ANNOUNCED THE FINAL RESULT OF THE TENDER
OFFER AND EXTENDED THE OFFER PERIOD BY A SUBSEQUENT OFFER PERIOD

The offer period under the voluntary public tender offer by McAfee Suomi
Funding LLC (the "Offeror"), an affiliate of McAfee Inc. and a wholly-owned
indirect subsidiary of Intel Corporation, to purchase all of the issued and
outstanding shares and option rights in Stonesoft Oyj ("Stonesoft") that are
not owned by Stonesoft or any of its subsidiaries (the "Tender Offer") expired
on 19 June 2013.

Pursuant to the press release of the Offeror published today with regard to
the final result of the Tender Offer, the shares tendered in the Tender Offer
represent approximately 95.26 per cent of all the shares and votes in
Stonesoft. In addition, 2.194.500 option rights have been tendered in the
Tender Offer. By using said option rights for the subscription of Stonesoft
shares the Offeror has a possibility to increase its holding to approximately
95.42 per cent of all the shares and votes in Stonesoft.

According to the press release of the Offeror published today,as the final
result of the Tender Offer confirms the preliminary result according to which
more than 90 per cent of the Stonesoft shares (on a fully diluted basis) have
been tendered in the Tender Offer, all the conditions to completion of the
Tender Offer have been satisfied and the Offeror will complete the Tender
Offer in accordance with its terms and conditions. The offer consideration
will be paid to the shareholders and holders of option rights who have validly
accepted the Tender Offer in accordance with the terms and conditions of the
Tender Offer on or about 2 July 2013.

In order to allow the remaining shareholders and holders of option rights the
possibility to still accept the Tender Offer, the Offeror has today decided to
extend the offer period by a subsequent offer period in accordance with the
terms and conditions of the Tender Offer (the "Subsequent Offer Period"). The
Subsequent Offer Period will commence on 26 June 2013 and expire on 10 July
2013. During the Subsequent Offer Period, the Tender Offer can be accepted in
accordance with the acceptance procedure described in the terms and conditions
of the Tender Offer.

Pursuant to the Offeror it will announce the initial percentage of the shares
and option rights validly tendered during the Subsequent Offer Period on or
about 11 July 2013 and the final percentage on or about 15 July 2013.

According to the Offeror it is the Offeror's intention to acquire all the
shares and option rights in Stonesoft. As the Offeror's ownership in Stonesoft
will exceed nine-tenths (9/10) of the shares and voting rights in Stonesoft
after the settlement of the shares already tendered in the Tender Offer, the
Offeror intends to initiate compulsory redemption proceedings for the
remaining Stonesoft shares under the Finnish Companies Act.

The Offeror may purchase shares and option rights in Stonesoft also in public
trading on NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd. or otherwise at a price not exceeding the
offer price of EUR 4.50 per share and at a price not exceeding the offer price
for the option rights as follows: EUR 4.20 for each 2008A option right, EUR
4.20 for each 2008B option right, EUR 4.20 for each 2008C option right, EUR
4.20 for each 2008D option right, EUR 3.08 for each 2012A option right, EUR
2.19 for each 2012B option right and EUR 2.19 for each 2012C option right.

The press release of the Offeror referred to above, which includes among other
matters more detailed information on the sale and purchase of shares tendered
during the Subsequent Offer Period, is attached as Appendix 1 in its entirety
to this stock exchange release.

offer consideration will be paid to the shareholders and holders of option
rights who have validly accepted the Tender Offer in accordance with the terms
and conditions of the Tender Offer on or about 2 July 2013.

In order to allow the remaining shareholders and holders of option rights the
possibility to still accept the Tender Offer, the Offeror has today decided to
extend the offer period by a subsequent offer period in accordance with the

schedule of money transactions between banking institutions, to the holder's
bank account so that it is on the bank account of the shareholder or the
