Comparison figures adjusted due to the divestment of the concrete business

LEMMINKÄINEN CORPORATION     STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE       19 OCTOBER 2012 AT 2.00 P.M.

COMPARISON FIGURES ADJUSTED DUE TO THE DIVESTMENT OF THE CONCRETE BUSINESS

Lemminkäinen completed the divestment of its concrete business to Rudus on 28 September 2012. In this transaction, the entire stock of Lemminkäinen Rakennustuotteet Oy was transferred to Rudus. The transaction price was EUR 55 million, from which Lemminkäinen will recognise capital gains of EUR 17.1 million in the third quarter of 2012.

On 31 January 2011, Lemminkäinen sold its roofing business, recognising capital gains of EUR 17.1 million before taxes in the first quarter of 2011.

The sold businesses are classified as discontinued operations. Consequently, the figures for the comparison periods will also be adjusted. Revised figures for 2011 and the first half of 2012 are presented below.

Lemminkäinen will publish its interim report for January-September 2012 at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, 1 November 2012. The adjustments due to the divestment of the concrete business have no effect on the profit guidance presented in the company's interim report for 1-6/2012. Lemminkäinen will keep its profit guidance intact. The company estimates that its 2012 net sales will remain at the same level as in 2011, and that its pre-tax profit will improve on 2011.
