partially amend the current Articles of Association. The main content of the    
amendments is the following:                                                    

1) Article 3 concerning the minimum and maximum share capital and the number of 
shares shall be deleted.                                                        

2) Article 4 concerning the book-entry system shall be amended so that all other

book-entry system shall be deleted.                                             

3) Article 8 of Articles of Association shall be amended so that instead of     
using the term signing the Company name the term “right to represent the        
Company” adopted in the new Companies Act shall be used.                        

4) Article 12 of the Articles of Association shall be amended so that the       
invitation to the General Meeting of Shareholders shall be published not later  
than 17 days prior to the General Meeting of Shareholders.                      

5) Point 1 of Article 14 of the Articles of Association shall be amended so that

report of the Board of Directors shall be presented at the Annual General       
Meeting of Shareholders and points 3 and 4 so that at the Annual General Meeting
of Shareholders the adoption of the financial statements and the consolidated   
financial statements and the allocation of profit shown in the adopted balance  
sheet shall be decided upon.                                                    


PROPOSAL BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO ISSUE STOCK OPTIONS                       

The Annual General Meeting approved the proposal of the Board of Directors to   
issue stock options. The main content of the proposal is the following:         

A maximum of 200 000 stock options shall be granted which entitle to subscribe  
for altogether a maximum of 200 000 new shares of Suominen Corporation.         

Of the stock options 100 000 shall be marked with the symbol 2007A and 100 000  
with the symbol 2007B. The stock options shall be issued in the book-entry      
system. The Board of Directors shall decide on the related procedure and time   
schedule.                                                                       

As decided by the Board of Directors, the stock options shall be granted for no 
consideration to the members of the Executive Team of the Company. The          
pre-emption right of the shareholders shall be waived because the stock options 
are intended to form a part of the Group's incentive program and therefore it is
considered that there is a weighty financial reason for the Company to do so.   

Each stock option entitles its holder to subscribe for one (1) new Company's    
share. As a result of the subscriptions, the number of the Company shares may be
increased by a maximum of 200 000 new shares. The share subscription price shall
be recognised in the invested non-restricted equity fund.                       

The share subscription period shall be for stock option 2007A 2 May 2009 - 30   
October 2010 and for stock option 2007B 2 May 2010 - 30 October 2011. The Board 
of Directors of the Company may decide to advance the beginning of the share    
subscription period for the stock options.                                      

The subscription price shall be for stock option 2007A the trade volume weighted
average quotation of the Company share on the Helsinki Stock Exchange in May    
2007 rounded to the nearest cent and for stock option 2007B the trade volume    
weighted average quotation of the Company share on the Helsinki Stock Exchange  
in May 2008 rounded to the nearest cent. The subscription price of stock options
shall be reduced in case the Company distributes dividends or funds from the    
non-restricted equity fund or in case the Company reduces its share capital by  
distributing share capital to its shareholders. The subscription price per share
must nevertheless always be at least EUR 0.01.                                  


AUTHORISATION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO DECIDE ON THE REPURCHASE OF THE      
COMPANY'S OWN SHARES                                                            

The Annual General Meeting approved the proposal of the Board of Directors to   
authorise the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of a maximum of    
1 186 000 of the Company's own shares. The repurchase authorisation is valid
for 18 months after the decision of the General Meeting. 

The shares shall be repurchased for use as consideration in future acquisitions 
or other arrangements related to the Company's business, as financing for       
investments or as part of the Company's incentive program or to be held by the  
Company, to be conveyed by other means or to be cancelled. The Company's own    
shares shall be repurchased otherwise than in proportion to the holdings of the 
shareholders by using the non-restricted equity through public trading on the   
Helsinki Stock Exchange at the market price prevailing at the time of           
acquisition.                                                                    


AUTHORISATION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO DECIDE ON THE CONVEYANCE OF THE      
COMPANY'S OWN SHARES                                                            

The Annual General Meeting approved the proposal of the Board of Directors to   
authorise the Board of Directors to decide on the conveyance of a maximum of    
1 237 000 of the Company's own shares held by the Company. The authorisation on 
conveying is valid for 18 months after the end of the General Meeting.          

The Company's own shares held by the Company may be conveyed either against     
payment or for free. The shares may be conveyed to the Company's shareholders in
proportion to their current shareholdings in the Company or waiving the         
shareholder's pre-emption right, through a directed share issue if the Company  
has a weighty financial reason to do so, such as using the shares as            
consideration in future acquisitions or other arrangements related to the       
Company's business, as financing investments or as part of the Company's        
incentive program.
