number of shares shall be deleted.
  
2) Article 4 concerning the book-entry system shall be amended so that
all other provisions except for the reference that the Company’s

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

statements and the allocation of profit shown in the adopted balance
sheet shall be decided upon.


3. PROPOSAL OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO GRANT STOCK OPTIONS

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting would decide
on granting stock options. The main points of the proposal are 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.


4. PROPOSAL OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO GRANT REPURCHASE
AUTHORISATION TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting would
authorise the Board of Directors to decide on a repurchase of a
maximum of 1 186 000 of the Company’s own shares. The repurchase
authorisation shall be 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.


5. PROPOSAL OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO AUTHORISE THE BOARD OF
DIRECTORS TO DECIDE ON CONVEYING OWN SHARES

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting would
authorise the Board of Directors to decide on conveying a maximum of
1 237 000 of the Company’s own shares held by the Company. The
authorisation on conveying shall be 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.
