recognized in separate companies during the review period. The effect on profit

Events related to the Technopolis share

At its meeting on January 4, 2007, the Board of Directors resolved, in
accordance with the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting of
March 24, 2006, to increase the company's share capital by a maximum of EUR
1,162,652.40, a total of 687,960 shares, through accepting subscriptions by
institutional investors. The purpose of the share offering was to finance the
investments included in the company's investment plan, to secure the company's
growth and to maintain the company's equity-to-assets ratio. 

The shares were offered in deviation from the pre-emptive subscription rights
of shareholders for subscription by Finnish and international institutional
investors. The share offering was implemented through a "book building"
process, in which institutional investors subscribed for the shares to be
issued in accordance with their subscription commitments made during the
reception period for such commitments, January 3-4, 2007. The demand was about
3.5 times higher than the number of shares offered. The subscription price was
set at EUR 7.70 per share. The increase in share capital was entered in the
Trade Register on January 8, 2007, and trading in the shares began on January
9, 2007. 

In December 2006, a total of 26,131 Technopolis shares were subscribed with
year 2001 options. An increase in the share capital of EUR 44,161.39 was
entered in the Trade Register on February 13, 2007. Including earlier
subscriptions, a total of 98,399 Technopolis shares were subscribed by April
30, 2007 with year 2001 options. An increase in share capital of EUR 166,294.31
was entered in the Trade Register on June 12, 2007. The subscription period for
all of the year 2001 options expired on April 30, 2007. 

The Board of Directors of Technopolis decided in August, pursuant to an
authorization by the Annual General Meeting of March 24, 2006, to issue through
a share offering to the City of Espoo, the Etera Mutual Pension Insurance
Company and Sitra (Finnish Innovation Fund) a total of 1,581,429 shares as
payment for the shares in Kiinteistö Oy Innopoli II. The resulting share
capital increase of EUR 2,672,615.01 was entered in the Trade Register on
August 20, 2007. Trading in the new shares commenced on August 21, 2007. 

Following these increases, the Technopolis share capital is EUR 71,364,476.69
and there are 42,227,501 shares. 


The Group's net financial expenses totaled EUR 6.8 million (EUR 3.7 million).
The Group's balance sheet total was EUR 513.7 million (EUR 377.1 million), of
which liabilities accounted for EUR 324.9 million (EUR 228.8 million). The
Group's equity to assets ratio was 36.9 % (39.5 %). The Group's equity per
share was EUR 4.47 (EUR 3.78). 

The Group's interest-bearing liabilities at the end of the review period were
EUR 280.1 million (EUR 197.6 million). The average interest rate of loans was
4.68 % on September 30, 2007 (3.74 %). 

Technopolis supplements its financing with a EUR 60.0 million domestic
commercial paper program which allows the company to issue commercial papers
with a maturity of less than a year. The commercial papers in issue totaled EUR
35.2 million on September 30, 2007. 

Organization and personnel

The Group Executive Board includes the President and CEO Pertti Huuskonen, the
directors Jukka Akselin, Satu Eskelinen, Marjut Hannelin, Martti Launonen,
Seppo Selmgren, Keith Silverang, Reijo Tauriainen, and Jarkko Ojala who
commenced as CFO on August 1, 2007. 

The Group employed an average of 142 (93) people during the review period. In
premises activities there were 50 (29) people, in business services 32 (20)
people and in development services 60 (44) people. 

Decisions of the Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of March 29, 2007 confirmed the consolidated and
parent company income statements and balance sheets for the year 2006, released
those responsible for accounts from further liability and decided on the
distribution of a dividend of EUR 0.14 per share for the year that ended on
December 31, 2006. 

The Board of Directors appointed by the Annual General Meeting comprises Timo
Parmasuo, chairman, Matti Pennanen, vice chairman, and Pekka Korhonen, Erkki
Veikkolainen and Juha Yli-Rajala. Pertti Huuskonen is the President and CEO of
Technopolis. The Group's auditor is KPMG Oy Ab, Authorized Public Accountants,
and the principally responsible auditor is Tapio Raappana, APA. 

The Annual General Meeting decided to amend the Group's articles of
association. The amendments are largely the result of the Companies Act that
came into force on September 1, 2006, and are mostly technical in nature. In
addition, the Annual General meeting decided to authorize the Board of
Directors to decide on acquiring the company's own shares, a share issue and
granting options and other special rights entitling to shares of the company,
granting options for the year 2007 to Group key personnel and annulment of the
2005C options. 

Evaluation of operational risks and uncertainty factors

The most significant risks to Technopolis' business operations are mainly
financial risks and customer risks. 

Technopolis' main financial risk is the interest rate risk on the loan
portfolio. The objective of interest rate risk management is to lower or remove
the negative impact of market rate fluctuations on the Group's performance,
balance sheet and cash flow. The company's financing policy aims to diversify
the interest rate risk of loan contracts over various loan periods on the basis
of the market situation reigning at any particular time and the interest rate
prognosis created in the company. If necessary, the company will employ forward
rate agreements, interest rate swaps and interest rate options. In order to
manage financial risk, Technopolis uses a wide range of financing companies and
maintains a high capital adequacy level. 

Technopolis only uses derivatives to reduce or remove financial risks in the
balance sheet. 

With the structure of the Technopolis loan portfolio at the end of the review
period, a one percentage point increase in money market rates would increase
interest rate costs by EUR 1.2 million per annum. 

Due to the interest rate risk related to loans, a policy of diversification has
been followed. On September 30, 2007, 73.3 % of the loan portfolio was bound
either to the 3-12 month Euribor rate or the base rate. Of the loans, 26.7 %
were fixed-interest loans of 13 to 60 months. The average capital-weighted
outstanding loan period was 9.9 years. Technopolis supplements its total
financing with a EUR 60.0 million domestic commercial paper program which
allows the company to issue commercial papers with a maturity of less than a
year. The commercial papers in issue totaled EUR 35.2 million on September 30,

Changes in the exchange rates between the Russian ruble and euro may have an
effect on the company's financial situation and operations. Business
transactions denominated in rubles are recorded at the exchange rate of the
transaction date. Any translation differences are entered in the income
statement under other operating expenses or financial income and expenses
depending on the nature of the transaction. The purchase of land in St.
Petersburg was financed in local currency. Currency risks have been minimized
by applying a currency swap. 

Customer risk management aims to minimize the negative impact of any changes in
customers' financial situation on the business and the company's profit. In
customer risk management, the emphasis is on familiarity with the customer's
business and active monitoring of customer information. As part of customer
risk management, Technopolis's leases include rent collateral arrangements.
Properties are insured with full value insurance. 

The Group's property portfolio is divided geographically between the Helsinki
metropolitan area, Jyväskylä, Lappeenranta, Tampere and the Oulu region. No
single customer accounts for more than 13 % of the Group's net sales. The Group
has arranged the leases of its biggest customers to end at different times. The
Group has a total of more than 1,000 customers, which operate in several
different sectors. 

Technopolis is protected against business-cycle fluctuations by fixed leases
which totaled EUR 119.8 million on September 30, 2007. Of the leases, 0.5 %
will expire in 2007, 23.5 % will expire in 2008-2010, 33 % in 2011-2013, 5 % in
2014-2016, and 38 % in 2017 or later. 

In new building projects, Technopolis focuses on quality determination and the
manageability of the property's entire lifecycle. In the design phase, all the
building's maintenance and repair requirements are taken into account, with the
aim of implementing environmentally friendly solutions in terms of energy
consumption, the adaptability of office facilities, and recycling
possibilities. In connection with property purchases, Technopolis carries out
the normal property and environmental assessments before committing to the

Changes in market return requirements may have a substantial effect on profit
performance. When return requirements increase, the fair value of properties
decreases and when they decrease, the fair value of properties increases. The
changes have either an increasing or decreasing effect on the Group operating

Outlook for the future

Technopolis management expects that demand for the company's high tech
operating environments will be satisfactory in 2007 and that the occupancy
ratio of its facilities and demand for their services will remain good.
Technopolis estimates that its net sales and EBITDA for 2007 will grow by 22-26
% on the previous year. 

As part of its strategy for growth, Technopolis aims to operate in top high
technology cities in Finland, as well as in Russia and 1-2 other countries by
2010. The Group aims to increase its net sales by an average of 15 % annually.
It seeks to grow organically as well as through acquisitions. 

The Group's financial performance is dependent on trends in the general
operating environment, in customer business, in the financial markets and in
the return requirements for properties. Factors in these areas may affect the
Group's result through changes in occupancy ratios, the use of services,
financing costs, the fair values of properties and office rent levels.
