    Acquiring of company's own shares

    The Board of Directors of Solteq Plc has decided to acquire the maximum amount
    of 500.000 company's own shares (in addition to the 564.081 own shares already
    owned by the Group companies) on the grounds of the authorization given by the
    Annual General Meeting of March 16, 2011.

    According to the authorization, the shares can be acquired in order to develop
    the company's capital structure, finance and execute acquisitions or similar
    arrangements or used as part of the incentive scheme of the personnel or convey
    otherwise or be invalidated.

    Due to the low average trading liquidity of the company's shares, the Board
    further decided, as per Clause 3.2.5 of the Helsinki Stock Exchange Guidelines
    governing the acquisition of own shares, to deviate from the procedures referred
    to in Clauses 3.2.1-3.2.2 of the Guidelines as detailed here. The company aims
    to carry out the acquisition of its own shares within nine months of launching
    the acquisition, thus seeking to ensure trading liquidity during the buy-back
    programme. Acquisition of the company's own shares on these terms may lead to a
    situation where the volume being acquired exceeds half (50 %) of the average
    daily trading volume, but even in such cases, the deviation must not result in
    any exceptional market movements, nor may the volume being acquired on that
    particular trading day exceed 10 % of total volumes being acquired.

    The acquiring of the company's own shares will start during one week after the
    publication of this decision at the earliest and will end at the end of the next
    Annual General Meeting at the latest.
