15. Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase and/or on the

The  Board  of  Directors  proposes  to  the  General  Meeting that the Board of
Directors  be authorized to decide on the repurchase and/or on the acceptance as
pledge of the Company's own shares as follows.

The  amount of own shares to be  repurchased and/or accepted as pledge shall not
exceed 10,000,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 6.7 per cent of all
the  shares in  the Company.  Own shares  can be  repurchased otherwise  than in
proportion  to the shareholdings of  the shareholders (directed repurchase). Own
shares  can be  repurchased using  the unrestricted  equity of  the Company at a
price  formed in public trading on the date  of the repurchase or otherwise at a
price determined by the markets.
 Own shares may be repurchased and/or accepted as pledge in order to develop the
Company's  capital structure,  in order  to finance  or carry  out acquisitions,
investments  or other business  transactions, or in  order to use  the shares as
part of the Company's incentive schemes.

The repurchased shares may be held for reissue, canceled or transferred further.
The  Board of Directors decides  on all other matters  related to the repurchase
and/or  acceptance as pledge of own shares. The authorization is effective until
June  30, 2014 and it cancels the authorization  given to the Board of Directors
by  the General  Meeting on  March 29, 2012 to  decide on  the repurchase of the
Company's own shares.

16. Amendment of the Articles of Association

The  Board of Directors proposes that the following sentence limiting the age of
a  person who  can be  elected to  the Board  of Directors shall be removed from
Section  4 of the Company's  Articles of Association:  "A person who has reached
the age of 68 years cannot be elected as a member of the Board of Directors".

17. Establishment of a Shareholders' Nomination Board
The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to establish a
Shareholders'  Nomination  Board  to  prepare  future  proposals  concerning the
election  and  remuneration  of  the  members  of  the Board of Directors to the
General  Meetings. In addition, the Board of Directors proposes that the General
Meeting  adopts the Charter of the Shareholders'  Nomination Board set out as an
appendix to the proposal.

According  to the proposal, the  Nomination Board shall comprise representatives
nominated  by the four largest  shareholders of the company  and the Chairman of
the  Board of Directors.  The right to  nominate representatives shall be vested
with  the four shareholders of the Company having the largest share of the votes
represented  by all the shares  in the Company annually  on September 1 based on
the  company's shareholders' register held by Euroclear Finland Ltd. However, if
a  shareholder who has distributed his/her  holdings e.g. into several funds and
has  an  obligation  under  the  Finnish  Securities  Markets  Act to take these
holdings  into account  when disclosing  changes in  share of  ownership makes a
written  request to  such effect  to the  Chairman of  the Board of Directors no
later  than  on  August  31, such  shareholder's  holdings  in  several funds or
registers  will be combined when calculating the share of votes which determines
the  nomination  right.  Should  a  shareholder  not  wish  to  exercise his/her
nomination right, the right shall be transferred to the next largest shareholder
who otherwise would not be entitled to nominate a member.

The  Chairman of the Board  of Directors shall convene  the first meeting of the
Nomination  Board and the Nomination Board shall elect a chairman from among its
members.  The Nomination Board shall give its proposal to the Board of Directors
annually no later than January 31 preceding the next Annual General Meeting. The
term of office of the members of the Nomination Board expires annually after the
new Nomination Board has been appointed.
