STOCKMANN TO SELL TREASURY SHARES

Based on the authorisation issued by the Annual General Meeting held on 20 March 2007, Stockmann's Board of Directors decided today to transfer treasury shares under the following conditions:

1. The maximum amount shares to be transferred is 336,528 Series B shares;

2. The shares will be transferred in public trading arranged by NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Oy by one or more contractual trades to investors procured by a securities intermediary;

3. The share price will be the market price of the company's shares, which will be determined on the basis of the shares' quotation in public trading and the offers procured by the securities intermediary; and

4. The shares will be paid in accordance with the rules applicable to the clearing and settlement of stock exchange transactions.

The purchase price received for the shares will be credited to the paid-up unrestricted equity reserve. The shares are being transferred as a part of the capital releasing programme which has been disclosed earlier. Therefore, there is a weighty financial reason for the company to transfer the shares in deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription right.
