By its decision issued today, the Market Court has ordered seven asphalt        
industry companies to pay a total of EUR 19.4 million in competition            
infringement fines for circumventing competition laws.                          

The infringement fine imposed on Lemminkäinen is EUR 14 million. The amount     
proposed by the Finnish Competition Authority was EUR 68 million.               

Lemminkäinen will examine the decision and announce its position in a stock     
exchange bulletin to be issued at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon. Any requests for    
additional information will be addressed after the announcement.                

The Market Court is the court of first instance to hear the case. All parties   
are entitled to appeal the decision to the Supreme Administrative Court.        
Irrespective of any appeal, the competition infringement fine imposed on        
Lemminkäinen by the Market Court will be recognised as expenditure in the fourth
quarter of the current year. Even so, Lemminkäinen's profit for 2007 will exceed
its earnings in 2006.
