Treasury shares and Board authorizations

Valmet Oyj’s Annual General Meeting on March 23, 2017 authorized Valmet’s Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of the Company's own shares in one or several tranches. The maximum number of shares to be repurchased shall be 10,000,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 6.7 percent of all the shares in the Company.

The Company's own shares may be repurchased otherwise than in proportion to the shareholdings of the shareholders (directed repurchase). The Company's own shares may be repurchased using the unrestricted equity of the Company at a price formed on a regulated market on the main list of Nasdaq Helsinki's stock exchange on the date of the repurchase.

The Company's own shares may be repurchased for reasons of developing the Company's capital structure, financing or carrying out acquisitions, investments or other business transactions, or for the shares to be used in an incentive scheme. The Board of Directors resolves on all other terms related to the repurchasing of the Company's own shares.

Valmet Oyj’s Annual General Meeting authorized Valmet’s Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of special rights entitling to shares pursuant to Chapter 10(1) of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act in one or several tranches. The issuance of shares may be carried out by offering new shares or by transferring treasury shares held by Valmet Oyj. Based on this authorization, the Board of Directors may decide on a directed share issue in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights and on the granting of special rights subject to the conditions mentioned in the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act. The maximum number of new shares which may be issued by the Board of Directors based on this authorization shall be 15,000,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 10 percent of all the shares in Valmet Oyj. The maximum number of treasury shares which may be issued shall be 10,000,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 6.7 percent of all the shares in the Company.

The Board of Directors is furthermore authorized to issue special rights pursuant to Chapter 10(1) of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act entitling their holder to receive new shares or treasury shares for consideration. The maximum number of shares which may be issued based on the special rights shall be 15,000,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 10 percent of all the shares in Company. This number of shares shall be included in the aggregate numbers of shares mentioned in the previous paragraph. The new shares and treasury shares may be issued for consideration or without consideration.

The Board of Directors of Valmet Oyj was also authorized to resolve on issuing treasury shares to the Company without consideration. The maximum number of shares which may be issued to Valmet Oyj shall be 10,000,000 shares when combined with the number of shares repurchased based on an authorization. Such number corresponds to approximately 6.7 percent of all shares in the Company. The treasury shares issued to the Company shall not be taken into account in the limits pursuant to the preceding paragraphs.

The Board of Directors may resolve on all other terms of the issuance of shares and special rights entitling to shares pursuant to Chapter 10(1) of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act. The Company may use this authorization, for example, for reasons of developing the Company’s capital structure, in financing or carrying out acquisitions, investments or other business transactions, or for the shares to be used in incentive schemes.

The authorizations shall remain in force until the next Annual General Meeting, and they cancel the Annual General Meeting’s authorizations of March 23, 2016.
