TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR THE PERFORMANCE SHARE PLAN 2010—2012


The Board of Directors of Technopolis Plc (the Board of Directors) has at its
meeting on 26 February 2009 resolved to propose to the Annual General Meeting
of Shareholders of Technopolis Plc to be held on 26 March 2009 that a
performance share plan (the Plan) be implemented on the following terms and
conditions: 

1. Objectives of the Plan

The Plan shall be established to form part of the incentive and commitment
program for the key personnel of Technopolis Plc (the Company) and its
subsidiaries (jointly the Group). The aim is to combine the objectives of the
shareholders and the key personnel in order to increase the value of the
Company, to commit the key personnel to the Company, and to offer them a
competitive reward plan based on holding the Company shares. 

2. Target Group

The Group key personnel determined by the Board of Directors shall belong to
the target group of the Plan each year. All key employees belonging to the
target group must, at the beginning of an earning period, be employed by or in
the service of a company belonging to the Group (Group Company), until further
notice. Belonging to the target group of the Plan does not affect other
employment or service terms. The reward to be paid on the basis of the Plan
shall not constitute a part of the terms and conditions of employment, service
or compensation. 

The Board of Directors may decide upon including new key employees in the Plan
and upon their maximum rewards so that the amount of the maximum reward is in
the equal proportion to the duration of the employment or service during an
earning period. 

3. Earning Period

The Plan includes three earning periods which are calendar years 2010, 2011 and
2012. The amount of reward earned from an earning period shall be determined on
the basis of achievement of the targets established for the earnings criteria,
after the end of an earning period by the end of April. Should the Company's
financial year change before the end of an earning period, the Board of
Directors shall be entitled to alter an earning period accordingly. 

4. Maximum Reward

The Plan offers the target group a possibility to earn the Company's shares
(share) as reward for achieving targets established for the earnings criteria
of an earning period. Besides shares, a cash proportion is included in the
reward. The cash proportion is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs
arising from the reward to a key person. The Company shall withhold payroll tax
from the reward according to law and shall use the cash proportion for that. 

The Board of Directors shall determine the amount of the maximum reward for
each person belonging to the target group for an earning period. The maximum
reward shall be expressed as a number of shares and cash payment. A person
belonging to the target group shall be informed on his or her maximum reward as
soon as the Board of Directors has decided upon it. 

There shall be a maximum total of 390,000 shares and a cash payment that is
needed for taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to the key
personnel on the book-entry account registration date of the shares that shall
be given as reward on the basis of the entire Plan. The amount of cash payment
shall, however, correspond to the registration date value of the distributable
shares, in the maximum. The registration date of shares has been determined in
Section 6. Should the amount of taxes and tax-related costs arising from the
reward to a key person exceed the amount of the cash proportion, a key person
shall be responsible for paying such excess amount.  The Company shall pay the
transfer tax connected to the reward payment. 

5. Determination of the Reward

The Board of Directors shall decide on the earnings criteria of the Plan and on
targets to be established for them individually for each earning period, during
December of a calendar year preceding each earning period. Achieving the
targets established for the earnings criteria shall determine the proportion
out of the maximum reward that shall be paid to a key person. 

The Board of Directors shall be entitled to adjust the targets estab-lished for
the earnings criteria in case of substantial extraordinary events during an
earning period. This kind of event may be an acquisi-tion or a divestment, an
incidental capital gain or loss or any other circumstance that could not be
considered upon establishment of earn-ings criteria but that has a material
impact on the achievement of targets established for the earnings criteria. 

6. Reward Payment

The reward from the Plan shall be paid to the key personnel as a combination of
shares and cash payment after the end of an earning period, by the end of April
2011, 2012 and 2013. 

The proportion of the reward to be given as shares shall be registered on the
book-entry account of a key person. The value of shares shall be determined on
the basis of the share price of the registration date of the shares. The share
price shall be the trade volume weighted average quotation of the share on the
NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Oy of the exchange transactions closed on the registration
date of the shares. The proportion of the reward to be paid in cash shall be
paid concurrently with the assignment of the shares or as soon as it is
possible in each of the Group Companies and it shall be used for withholding
payroll taxes of a key person according to law. 

The right to reward is personal, and the reward shall only be paid to a key
person belonging to the target group. The right to reward may not be assigned.
Upon death, the potential reward shall be paid to the estate or beneficiary or
heir of a key person. 

7. Shareholder Rights to the Assigned Shares and Restriction on the
Assignability for the Shares 

The shareholder rights to the shares registered on the book-entry accounts of
the key personnel shall be assigned to the key personnel on the date of
registration of the share transfer. Should the distributed shares be new, the
share-related rights shall arise upon enter of the shares into the Trade
Register. 

Shares earned on the basis of the Plan, may not be assigned, pledged or
otherwise exercised during the restriction period established for the shares
(Restriction Period). Each restriction period shall begin from the reward
payment and end on 30 June 2013 for the shares earned from the earning period
2010, on 30 June 2014 for the shares earned from the earning period 2011 and on
30 June 2015 for the shares earned from the earning period 2012. The
restriction on the assignability also concerns potential shares and other
quoted securities that have gratuitously been received on the basis of the
shares earned from the Plan. The Board of Directors may, for very weighty
reasons, permit the assignment of shares and securities also before such date. 

Should shares be paid as reward, the President and CEO of the Company must hold
50% of the shares received on the basis of the Plan as long as his service as
President and CEO continues and the members of the Executive Board of the
Company must hold 50% of the shares received on the basis of the Plan for two
(2) years after the end of each Restriction Period. 

The Company shall be entitled to apply for a registration of a restriction on
the assignability preventing the assignment of shares and other respective
restrictions concerning the shares, on a key person's book-entry account,
without the consent of a key person. 

8. Employment or Service Preconditions during an Earning Period 

Should a Group Company or a key person give notice of termination or terminate
an employment contract or a service contract of a key person, before the reward
payment, no reward shall be paid to a key person. The Board of Directors may,
however, in these cases decide upon a key person's right to the reward accrued
by the end of employment or service. 

Should a key person's employment or service in a Group Company end due to a
corporate arrangement or transfer of business, or should a key person retire
statutorily or die before the end of a earning period, the Board of Directors
shall decide upon a key person's or his or her estate's or beneficiary's or
heir's right to the reward accrued by the end of employment or service. Should
a Group Company not belong to the Group any more, the proceedings shall be
similar. 

Should a key person's work assignments alter within the Group before the reward
payment, the Board of Directors shall decide on a key person's right to the
reward. 

9. Employment or Service Preconditions during the Restriction Period and
Obligation to return Shares 

Should a Group Company or a key person give notice of termination or terminate
an employment contract or a service contract of a key person, during the
Restriction Period, a key person shall be obliged to return the shares given as
reward back to the Company or its assignee, gratuitously, without delay. The
returning obligation also concerns potential shares and other quoted securities
that have gratuitously been received on the basis of the shares earned from the
Plan. The Board of Directors may, however, in these cases, decide that a key
person is entitled to keep the securities or a part of them, which are subject
to the returning obligation. 

In these cases, the Company shall have the right to request and get transferred
such shares that are subject to the returning obligation from a key person's
book-entry account to the Company's or its assignee's book-entry account,
without the consent of a key person. 

Should a key person retire statutorily or die during the Restriction Period, a
key person or his or her estate or beneficiaries or heirs shall have the right
to keep the received shares. The restriction on the assignability of the shares
shall, however, be valid until the end of the Restriction Period, unless
otherwise decided by the Board of Directors. 

A key person shall be obliged to return also the cash proportion of the reward
concerning the shares to be returned, without delay. As far as the cash
proportion has been used for taxes and tax-related costs arising from the
reward to a key person, a key person shall be obliged to return only a cash
proportion corresponding to the amount of taxes and tax-related costs that
shall potentially be refunded to a key person. 

10. Adjustments in Certain Special Cases

Should the Company, differing from the Company's normal practice, decide to
distribute dividends or assets from reserves of unrestricted equity, or decide
to reduce its share capital by distributing share capital to the shareholders,
or decide to reduce its share premium fund by distributing funds from the share
premium fund to the shareholders, after the beginning of an earning period and
before the reward payment, the Board of Directors shall decide on the
adjustment of the amount of the maximum reward so that the position of a key
person corresponds to that of a shareholder. 

Should the Company, after the beginning of an earning period and before the
reward payment, decide on an issue of shares or an issue of stock options or
other special rights entitling to shares so that the shareholders have
pre-emptive subscription rights, the amount of the maximum reward shall be
increased by multiplying the number of shares of the maximum reward by the
share issue multiplier. 

Should the Company, after the beginning of an earning period and before the
reward payment, decide to merge with another company as a merging company or
with a company to be formed in a combination merger, or should the Company
decide to be demerged in its entirety, the amount of the maximum reward shall
be adjusted so that the position of a key person corresponds to that of a
shareholder. 

Acquisition or redemption of the Company's own shares or acquisition of stock
options or other special rights entitling to shares shall not affect the Plan. 

Should a situation occur, after the beginning of an earning period and before
the reward payment, where a shareholder, based on the Companies Act, has a
redemption right and redemption obligation with respect to the rest of the
outstanding shares, the maximum reward shall be converted into money by
multiplying the number of shares by the redemption price. In this event, the
reward shall be paid fully in cash. 

11. Administration of the Plan

The Board of Directors shall monitor the Plan and decide on all matters
relating thereto. 

The Board of Directors may propose to the General Meeting of Share-holders that
it grants the Board of Directors an authorisation re-quired by the Companies
Act to acquire the number of own shares re-quired for the Plan, when needed.
The Board of Directors may also pro-pose to the General Meeting of Shareholders
that it grants the Board of Directors an authorisation required by the
Companies Act for an is-sue of shares, for the number of shares required for
the Plan, when needed. 

Upon reward payment, the Board of Directors shall have the right to decide that
the Company pays the reward fully or partly in cash, on the basis of the trade
volume weighted average quotation of the share on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Oy
during the calendar month preceding the payment date.  The Board of Directors
shall have the right to obligate a key person to acquire shares with a maximum
of 50% of the amount of the reward. Also in these cases, the restriction on the
assignability in Section 7 and the returning obligation in Section 9 shall be
applied to the reward, in the manner determined by the Board of Directors. 

12. Amendment of the Terms and Conditions of the Plan

During an earning period, the Board of Directors may, for very weighty reasons,
amend the terms and conditions of the Plan. This kind of reason may e.g. be a
considerable change in the Group structure, which causes discontinuity in the
earnings criteria of an earning period and targets established for them, or a
public offer made of the Company. The terms and conditions shall be amended in
such a manner that no unjust enrichment or considerable defect shall occur to a
key person, due to amending the terms and conditions. 

13. Applicable Law and Settlement of Disputes

These terms and conditions shall be governed by the laws of Finland. Disputes
arising in relation to this Plan shall be finally settled by arbitration, in
accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Central Chamber of Commerce by one
single arbitrator. 

These terms and conditions have been prepared in Finnish and in English. In
case of any discrepancy between the Finnish and English versions, the Finnish
shall prevail.
