Metso's disposal of treasury shares as part of its share ownership plan


March 14, 2014 - London

Metso Corporation's stock exchange release on March 14, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. local time

A total of 24,649 of Metso Corporation's treasury shares have been conveyed without consideration to the 39 key individuals participating in the company's Share Ownership Plan 2011-2013 under the terms and conditions of the plan.

The total reward payable under the plan also includes 24,649 Valmet shares. Metso's Board of Directors decided in summer 2013 that, following the completion of the demerger, the reward earned as part of the plan would be paid to participants in the form of both Metso and Valmet shares.

The directed share issue is based on an authorization given by the Annual General Meeting held on March 29, 2012.

Following the directed share issue, the number of treasury shares now stands at 458,988 shares.

Metso announced the Share Ownership Plan 2011-2013 in a stock exchange release issued on October 1, 2010.
