Metso's illustrative financial information for 2012 and for January - September of 2013

Metso Corporation's Extraordinary General Meeting approved a demerger plan on
October 1, 2013, pursuant to which all the assets, debts, and liabilities
relating to Metso's Pulp, Paper and Power businesses will transfer without
liquidation to Valmet Corporation. Metso's Mining and Construction segment and
Automation segment will form Metso's continuing operations.

The demerger is expected to be registered in the Finnish Trade Register on or
about December 31, 2013, after which Valmet shares will be admitted for public
trading on NASDAQ OMX Helsinki on or about January 2, 2014.

A prospectus relating to Valmet Corporation, an entity to be established as part
of Metso's partial demerger, was published on September 23, 2013 and is
available on Metso's website (www.metso.com).

Basis of the Preparation of Unaudited Illustrative Financial Information

The following unaudited illustrative financial information is presented to
illustrate the result of operations and the financial position of Metso's
continuing operations had the demerger taken place on January 1, 2012. The
unaudited illustrative information in respect of Metso set out below is based
upon financial information derived from Metso's audited consolidated financial
statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2012, restated for the
impact of the adoption of revised IAS 19 "Employee Benefits", and from Metso's
unaudited consolidated interim report as of and for the nine month period ended
September 30, 2013.

This unaudited illustrative information is presented for illustrative purposes
only. Because of its nature, it addresses a hypothetical situation and does not
represent the actual results of Metso's operations or financial position had the
demerger been completed on January 1, 2012. This information is not intended to
project Metso's operational results or financial position of Metso as of any
future date.

Management believes that the illustrative information presented in this release
provides a relevant basis to present the result of operations and the financial
position of the continuing Metso Group. The adjustments made in preparing this
information are based on available information and assumptions. There is no
certainty that the assumptions applied in preparing the unaudited illustrative
information will prove correct.

The following significant assumptions and adjustments to such historical
information have been made in the preparation of the illustrative financial
information for Metso's continuing operations:

All the revenues, expenses, assets, and liabilities relating to the PPP business
have been excluded from Metso's reported consolidated financial information.
  * The effects of certain intra-group arrangements that have been or will be
    undertaken by Metso prior to the demerger in order to achieve the planned
    legal group structures of both Metso and Valmet have been taken into
    account, as have the effects of certain refinancing measures, including a
    settlement of intra-group items between Metso and Valmet. The net settlement
    of the intra-group balances has been treated as an adjustment to cash and
    cash equivalents for consolidated balance sheet purposes (a decrease of EUR
    102 million as of December 31, 2012 and an increase of EUR 51 million as of
    September 30, 2013), reflecting the cash amount to be paid by Metso to
    Valmet or vice versa to settle the balances.
  * The total amount of equity derived from Metso's historical equity balance
    shown in the illustrative consolidated balance sheets represents the amount
    of net assets attributable to the PPP business. The adjustments made to
    equity reflect the contemplated equity structure of Valmet Corporation as
    described in the demerger plan.
Accounting treatment of the demerger

The demerger will be accounted for as a disposal to owners in accordance with
IFRIC 17, Distributions of non-cash assets to owners. Once the demerger takes
place, the difference between the fair value of the PPP business and its book
value in Metso's consolidated balance sheet will be recorded as a gain on
distribution. The PPP business to be divested through the demerger will be
presented as discontinued operations in Metso's financial reporting when
shareholders have approved the demerger.
