acquisitions, investments or other business transactions, or for the shares to
be used in an incentive scheme. The repurchased shares may be held for the time
being, cancelled or reissued.

The Board of Directors resolves on all other terms related to the repurchasing
and/or taking as pledge of own shares.

The authorisation shall remain in force until 30 June 2015 and it cancels the
previous authorisation given to the Board of Directors of Valmet Corporation by
the extraordinary general meeting of Metso Corporation convening on 1 October

16. Authorising the Board of Directors to resolve on the issuance of shares as
well as the issuance of special rights entitling to shares

The Board of Directors of Valmet Corporation proposes that the Board of
Directors be authorised to resolve on the issuance of new shares, treasury
shares and special rights pursuant to Chapter 10(1) of the Finnish Limited
Liability Companies Act as follows:
The maximum number of new shares which may be issued shall be 15,000,000 shares,
which corresponds to approximately 10% of all the shares in Valmet Corporation.
The maximum number of treasury shares which may be issued shall be 10,000,000
shares, which corresponds to approximately 6.7% of all the shares in the
Company.

The Board of Directors is furthermore authorised 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 against
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% 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 Corporation shall also be authorised to resolve
on issuing treasury shares to the Company without consideration. The maximum
number of shares which may be issued to Valmet Corporation shall be 10,000,000
shares when combined with the number of shares repurchased based on an
authorisation. Such number corresponds to approximately 6.7% 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 new shares, treasury shares and the special rights pursuant to Chapter
10(1) of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act may be issued to the
shareholders in proportion to their current shareholdings in the Company. The
new shares, treasury shares and the special rights referred to in Chapter 10(1)
of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act may also be issued in deviation
from the shareholders' pre-emptive rights by way of a directed issue if there is
a weighty financial reason for Valmet Corporation to do so. The deviation from
the shareholders' pre-emptive rights may be invoked, 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 an incentive scheme.  A directed share issue may be executed without
consideration only if there is an especially weighty financial reason for Valmet
Corporation to do so, having regard to the interests of all the shareholders.

The Board of Directors may resolve on all other terms of the issuance of shares
and special rights pursuant to in Chapter 10(1) of the Finnish Limited Liability
Companies Act.

The authorisation shall remain in force until 30 June 2015 and it cancels the
previous authorisation given to the Board of Directors of Valmet Corporation by
the extraordinary general meeting of Metso Corporation convening on 1 October
2013.

17. Establishment of a Shareholders' Nomination Board

The Board of Directors of Valmet Corporation proposes that the General Meeting
resolve 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 adopt 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 1 September 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 31 August, 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 31 January preceding the next Annual General Meeting. The
term of the Nomination Board ends each year upon the appointment of the new
Nomination Board.
