Rautaruukki Corporation Stock exchange release 2 August 2013 at 10.00am EEST

Ruukki has signed an additional contract to deliver buildings for Poultry
Akashevskaya's new poultry meat facility in the Mari El Republic in Russia.
The contract received is worth a total of around EUR 30 million. Delivery
includes a total of around 200 separate buildings.

Ruukki's delivery includes the frames, structures, wall panels and steel roofs
for the buildings. The delivery consists of almost 200 individual buildings,
most of which will be delivered during the current year. The order received is
a continuation of earlier deliveries to Poultry Akashevskaya's production
facilities. The previous order was received in spring this year. Poultry
Akashevskaya Agroholding is one of the largest poultry companies in Russia.

Ruukki's complete building solutions are also ideal for logistics and
commercial buildings. "The further order we have received is testimony to the
customer's confidence in Ruukki. Our strengths include high quality and
delivery reliability. Our own sandwich panel plant in Russia enables us to
make prompt deliveries," says Jussi Tuisku, General Director, Ruukki Russia.

Ruukki has strengthened its position in modernisation of the Russian
agricultural sector. The buildings are based on Ruukki's cold-formed
galvanised profiles, which are market leader in Russia. The new production
facilities are being built from distinct, lightweight structural components
that can be modified for various applications. Thanks to their simple
structure, the buildings can be quickly tailored to meet specific customer
needs. Highly prefabricated elements and structures enable quick installation
and thus reduce building costs.

"One of Ruukki's key strategic aims is growth in Russia. Thanks to the rapid
modernisation of Russian agriculture, our solutions are now in demand. To an
increasing extent, we also provide energy-efficient building solutions which
reduce the lifecycle costs of buildings, something which customers also
appreciate", says Tommi Matomäki, Executive Vice President, Ruukki Building
Systems.
