Despite the global economic downturn in the second half of the year,            
Technopolis's operations developed favorably during the reporting period without
the financial crisis having a substantial impact on the Group's rental or       
service operations. The financial occupancy ratio remained high, and the Group's
net sales and EBITDA improved on 2007.                                          

Growth continued in accordance with company's strategy, with the Group's        
property portfolio increasing by a 72,292 m2 gross. The most significant        
development was the acquisition of Kuopion Teknologiakeskus Teknia Oy (Teknia   
Technology Park) and the expansion of operations in Kuopio. New technology      
centers or extensions to existing centers were completed in Helsinki,           
Lappeenranta, Oulu, Tampere, and Vantaa during the reporting period. Overall,   
the occupancy rates of the completed properties were high when commissioned and 
positive changes in their fair value were recorded. In 2008, we were able to    
raise approx. EUR 59.6 million in new share capital through a successful rights 
issue for the purpose of financing the Group's investments and growth, and      
securing its solvency.                                                          

Towards the end of 2008, we launched a number of internal development programs  
designed to standardize and integrate key processes, to invest in developing    
staff competences, and to make efficient use of new technologies. Through these 
actions we seek to enhance the Group's cost efficiency, improve quality and     
create a platform for international expansion.                                  

Overview                                                                        

Measured by the number of clients, Technopolis Plc is one of Europe's largest   
science and technology park chains. The Technopolis Group is Finland's largest  
specialized provider of business environment services for high tech companies,  
offering a comprehensive range of services combining modern premises with       
business and business development services. Technopolis operates or is in the   
process of building technology centers in Espoo, Helsinki, Jyväskylä,           
Lappeenranta, Oulu, Tampere and Vantaa in Finland, and in St. Petersburg in     
Russia. Currently, some 1,175 companies with 16,000 employees are working in the
Technopolis technology centers.                                                 

Business conditions in Finland and St. Petersburg                               

According to the Finnish Institute for Real Estate Economics KTI, the crisis    
originating in the financial market has also spread uncertainty in the property 
market, and the volume of transactions fell considerably from the earlier years.
The weakening of general economic conditions is also expected to be reflected in
the property market and to affect the demand for premises. Yield requirements   
are increasing and risk premiums growing at a time when the availability of     
funding is declining and lending spreads are increasing.                        

According to KTI's fall 2008 bulletin, occupancy rates in areas just outside    
downtown Helsinki have slightly declined, while rent levels in high-end         
properties are increasing. For some time now, the increased supply of premises  
has been reflected in relatively low occupancies in Espoo. In Vantaa, demand for
office space has remained strong. In Tampere, the supply and demand for business
premises in equilibrium. Of the other big cities, the office premises markets   
have been strongest in Kuopio and Oulu.                                         

According to a survey conducted by Statistics Finland, construction costs in    
Finland increased by 1.6% from December 2007 to December 2008. However, this    
trend peaked, and from November to December 2008, the construction cost index   
fell by 0.8%.                                                                   

During the latter half of 2008, the office premises market in St. Petersburg was
unstable. There was an increasing supply of new, high-end offices while at the  
same time the rental market stagnated. The markets are expecting office rents   
and real estate values to fall substantially from the current level. As a result
of the ailing financial markets, a number of property deals closed earlier in   
the fall have been cancelled and several projects frozen (source: Catella).     

Despite the deterioration of the global economy, demand for high-tech business  
environments in the areas in which Technopolis operates has been satisfactory,  
and the Group's financial occupancy rate has remained a solid 96.5% at the end  
of 2008. Increases in rent levels have primarily followed the changes in the    
cost-of-living index. To some extent, the uncertainty in the financial markets  
has been reflected in the spreads on the loans drawn down by the company and in 
the availability of funding.                                                    

Operations                                                                      

The Group's net sales for the reporting period reached EUR 72.6 million (EUR    
56.9 million in 2007), an increase of 27.5%. Of this, rental income accounted   
for 81.4% (80.9%) and service income for 18.6% (19.1%). EBITDA for the year was 
EUR 37.0 million (EUR 28.6 million), an increase of 29.2%. Other operating      
income includes a non-recurring capital gain of EUR 0.4 million and             
non-recurring compensation of EUR 0.5 million for the premature termination of a
lease. The Group's profit after depreciation and valuation items was EUR 35.3   
million (EUR 42.6 million), a decrease of 17.0%. The fall in profits was due to 
a decline in the fair value of investment properties which, however, had no     
impact on net sales, EBITDA or cash flow. Planned depreciation includes a       
non-recurring item of EUR 0.4 million. The Group's net financial expenses       
totaled EUR 13.9 million (EUR 9.7 million). The Group's profit before taxes was 
EUR 21.4 million (EUR 32.9 million).                                            

The balance sheet total was EUR 683.6 million (EUR 534.2 million), an increase  
of 28.0%. The Group's equity ratio at the end of the period was 40.5% (39.0%).  

The fair value of the Group's investment property at the end of 2008 was EUR    
594.0 million (EUR 468.8 million). The earnings impact of the change in fair    
values was EUR -0.7 million (EUR 14.6 million in 2007). The net change in fair  
value includes both a positive effect on profit from an increase in market rents
in some properties together with the appreciation of properties acquired and    
completed during the reporting period, and a negative effect caused by an       
increase in the yield requirements. Additionally, the change in fair value was  
affected by an adjustment to fair value calculation principles with respect to  
the first-year inflation rate and long-term inflation expectations. The         
projected long-term inflation rate used in the fair value calculation was 2.00%.
                                                                                
Yield requirements are calculated by analyzing by two independent appraisal     
agencies for each individual region. The yields are calculated by taking the    
average of the upper and lower ranges reported by these organizations. On       
December 31, 2008, the average net yield requirement for Group properties was   
7.68% (7.26% on December 31, 2007). A conservative average occupancy rate of    
95.5% was projected for the calculation of the fair values over a ten-year time 
frame. The Group's targets concerning the actual occupancy rates have been      
consistently higher than that. Over the period from 2000 to 2008, the Group's   
average occupancy rate was 97.5%.                                               

The Group's total rentable space was 438,337 m2 at the end of 2008 (366,045 m2  
on December 31, 2007). The Group's average financial occupancy rate at the end  
of the year was 96.5% (96.8%). The financial occupancy rate depicts rental      
revenues from the properties as a percentage of the aggregate of market rents   
for occupied premises and the estimated market rent for vacant space. At the end
of the reporting period, the lease portfolio held by the Group totaled EUR 122.5
million (EUR 111.0 million).                                                    

Group structure

long-term credit facilities, EUR 80.0 million consists of credit extended by the
European Investment Bank to Technopolis for future extension projects in        
Finland.                                                                        

Technopolis has a EUR 90 million domestic commercial paper program to manage its
short-term liquidity which allows the company to issue commercial papers with a 
maturity of less than one year. At the end of the reporting period, the Group's 
outstanding commercial papers stood at EUR 4.0 million (EUR 35.2 million).      
Technopolis also has an untapped EUR 15.0 million checking account overdraft    
facility. All in all, Technopolis has a total of EUR 249.8 million in short- and
long-term credit facilities.                                                    

Financing for the Pulkovo construction project in Russia will be provided by    
parent company funding, which will be converted into long-term loans and        
shareholders' equity with due regard to the Russian thin capitalization rules.  

Organization and personnel                                                      

Pertti Huuskonen, who had been President and CEO of the company since 1985,     
became full-time Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Technopolis Group on 
September 15, 2008, in accordance with the decision of the Annual General       
Meeting. In this role, he will focus on international growth and new investment 
opportunities.                                                                  

The new Technopolis President and CEO is 48-year-old Keith Silverang, who took  
up the post on September 15, 2008. Silverang has dual US and Finnish            
citizenship. He took his undergraduate degree at Boston University and completed
an MBA at the Helsinki School of Economics. Keith Silverang joined Technopolis  
in 2004. His earlier posts include internationalization and executive positions 
with AAC Global Oy, Oy Hackman AB and his own company, Oy ICS Ltd.              

On September 23, 2008, the Board of Directors of Technopolis decided to transfer
its consulting services and regional development program operations to          
Technopolis Ventures Oy and Oulu Innovation Ltd. This transfer will enable the  
company to focus on its core businesses. Instead, the company will focus on     
national and international ‘Open Innovation' services with the aim of helping   
Technopolis's anchor clients benefit from the innovation expertise possessed by 
the Group's SME clients.                                                        

The Technopolis Ventures Group put in a good performance during the reporting   
period under its new President and CEO Will Cardwell. The company helped its    
clients to raise a record amount of new venture capital in excess of EUR 53     
million. All five Finnish growth companies that made the Red Herring Top 100    
Global list are or have been clients of the Technopolis Ventures Group.         

At its meeting on October 21, 2008, the Technopolis Board of Directors decided  
to change its organizational structure and to reduce the number of members on   
the Group Management Team. The Technopolis line organization now consists of    
three business units: Finland, Russia and New Markets. Furthermore, the Group   
organization will have matrix support functions for its sales and marketing,    
real estate development, business services, business development and support    
activities.                                                                     

The company's CFO Jarkko Ojala resigned on December 14, 2008. Reijo Tauriainen, 
the Finnish Country Manager, who was the company's CFO from 2004 to 2007, has   
taken over as Acting CFO until further notice.                                  

The Group Management Board comprises President and CEO Keith Silverang, Finnish 
Country Manager and Acting CFO Reijo Tauriainen, Director of Tampere operations 
Satu Eskelinen and Chief Development Officer Jukka Akselin.                     

The Group employed an average of 165 (142) people during the fiscal year. There 
were 59 (49) employees in real estate operations, 38 (33) in business services  
and 68 (60) in development services. At the end of the reporting period, the    
total number of Group personnel was 158 (138).                                  

Annual General Meeting                                                          

The Annual General Meeting of March 27, 2008 adopted the Group and Parent       
Company financial statements for fiscal 2007, the company management from       
liability and decided to pay a dividend of EUR 0.15 per share for the period    
ending December 31, 2007, as proposed by the Board of Directors.                

The Annual General Meeting decided to amend the section of the Articles of      
Association specifying the term of the members of the Board of Directors such   
that the term of a member of the Board of Directors ends with the conclusion of 
the Annual General Meeting held during the second fiscal year following his/her 
appointment at the latest.                                                      

It was resolved that the Board of Directors would have six members. Jussi       
Kuutsa, Matti Pennanen, Timo Ritakallio, Erkki Veikkolainen and Juha Yli-Rajala 
were elected to the Board of Directors for a term beginning at the conclusion of
the Annual General Meeting that elected them and ending with the conclusion of  
the next Annual General Meeting. Pertti Huuskonen, the then President and CEO of
the company, was elected full-time Chairman of the Board for a term beginning   
when the next President and CEO has been officially registered and ending with  
the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting held in the second fiscal year     
following the Chairman's election. Timo Parmasuo was elected Chairman of the    
Board for a term beginning at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting that 
elected him and ending when Pertti Huuskonen's term begins. Matti Pennanen was  
elected Deputy Chairman of the Board.                                           

KPMG Oy Ab, Authorized Public Accountants, were appointed as the Group auditors,
the auditor-in-charge is Tapio Raappana, APA.                                   

The Annual General Meeting authorized the Board of Directors to decide on the   
acquisition of a maximum of 4,000,000 of the company's own shares, representing 
approx. 9.07% of the company's issued shares. Pursuant to the authorization,    
these shares may only be acquired using the company's unrestricted equity,      
either at the price set in public trading on the date of acquisition or at a    
price otherwise determined on the market. The Board of Directors will decide how
to acquire the shares; derivatives may be used along with other means for the   
purpose of acquisition. Shares need not necessarily be acquired in proportion to
the current holdings of the existing shareholders (directed acquisition). This  
authorization cancels the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting of
March 29, 2007 and will expire on May 31, 2009 at the latest.                   

The Annual General Meeting further authorized the Board of Directors to decide  
on a share issue and on option rights and other special rights entitling holders
to shares as defined in chapter 10, section 1, of the Limited Liability         
Companies Act, the maximum number of shares to be issued pursuant to the        
authorization being 8,000,000, equivalent to approx. 18.14% of the company's    
issued shares. The Board of Directors was authorized to decide on all the terms 
of the share issue and the granting of special rights giving entitlement to     
shares. The authorization concerns both the issuance of new shares and          
conveyance of the company's own shares. The share issue and the granting of     
special rights giving entitlement to shares may be offered to specific parties. 
This authorization does not revoke the authorization granted to the Board by the
Annual General Meeting of November 29, 2007, to decide on a share issue and on  
granting special rights giving entitlement to shares. The authorization will    
expire on May 31, 2009 at the latest.                                           

Evaluation of operational risks                                                 

The most significant risks in the operations of Technopolis are financial risks 
and client risks.                                                               

The objective of interest rate risk management is to mitigate the negative      
impact of market rate fluctuations on the Group's performance, financial        
position and cash flow. If necessary, the company will make use of forwards,    
interest rate swaps and interest rate options to hedge interest rate risks.     
Another aim of the company's interest rate risk policy is to diversify the      
interest rate risk of loan contracts over various loan periods on the basis of  
the market situation prevailing at any given time and the interest rate forecast
created by the company. The interest rate risk policy was updated in September  
2008.                                                                           

It is indicative of the structure of Technopolis's loan portfolio at the end of 
the financial year that a one point change in money market rates would change   
interest rate costs by EUR 1.9 million per annum.                               

Because of the interest rate risk associated with loans, a policy of            
diversifying interest bases is pursued. On December 31, 2008, 74.3% of the      
company's interest-bearing loans were pegged to the 3-12 month Euribor rate. Of 
all interest-bearing liabilities, 25.7% were fixed-rate loans with a maturity of
13 to 60 months.                                                                

The objective of refinancing risk management is to ensure that the Group loan   
portfolio is sufficiently diversified with regard to repayment schedules and    
financing instruments. The average capital-weighted outstanding loan period was 
10.8 years. In order to manage financing risk, Technopolis draws upon the       
resources of a wide range of financiers, makes use of a variety of financing    
instruments and maintains strong solvency.                                      

Extended uncertainty on the financing market may adversely affect the           
availability of growth financing and refinancing and their spreads in the       
future.                                                                         

Changes in the exchange rates between the Russian ruble and the euro may have an
effect on the company's financial performance and operations. Transactions      
denominated in rubles are recorded at the exchange rate applied on the          
transaction date. Any translation differences are entered in the income         
statement under other operating expenses or financial income and expenses       
according to the type of transaction involved. The acquisition of land in St    
Petersburg has been financed in the local currency, and the related exchange    
rate risk has been hedged using a currency swap.                                

The general weakening of economic conditions, if prolonged, may have an adverse 
effect on the company's clients and hence on the Group's operations.            

Client risk management aims to minimize the negative impact of any changes in   
the client's financial position on the company's business and its financial     
performance. Client risk management is based on a close understanding of the    
business the client is engaged in and on active monitoring of client            
information. As part of client risk management, Technopolis leases include      
rental security arrangements. All the properties have full value insurance.     

Geographically, the Group's property portfolio is diversified between the       
Helsinki metropolitan area, Jyväskylä, Lappeenranta, Tampere and the Oulu       
region. No single client accounts for more than 9.1% of the Group's net sales.  
All in all, the Group has some 1,175 client operating in several different      
sectors.                                                                        

The company's leases fall into two categories: fixed-term leases and open-ended 
leases. The company aims to employ both types of lease depending on the market  
situation, the property involved and the tenant's business.                     

At the end of the period under review, the open-ended leases that could be      
terminated and renegotiated during the following 12 months covered a total of   
227,467 m2 of space, or 57% of the entire property portfolio. The notice periods
for these leases are as follows: three months or less: 24%, three to six months:
52%, six to nine months: 16%, and more than nine months: 8% of the leases. At   
the end of the period, the average term of leases was 24 months.                

The current lease structure allows clients to change the premises they occupy   
flexibly as their business changes. This is a key element of the Technopolis    
service concept, and the company has solid long-term expertise in employing this
approach under varying economic conditions.                                     

In new building projects, Technopolis focuses on quality specifications and the 
manageability of the property's entire lifecycle. In the design phase, due      
consideration is given to all the maintenance and repair requirements in order  
to implement environmentally friendly solutions in terms of energy consumption, 
the adaptability of office facilities and recycling potential. When real estate 
deals are closed, Technopolis carries out the standard property and             
environmental audits before committing to the transaction.                      

Changes in the yield requirements may have a significant impact on financial    
performance. When the yield requirements increase, the fair value of properties 
fall. Conversely, when the yield requirements decrease, the fair value of       
properties increase. Such changes have an equivalent impact on the Group's      
operating profit.                                                               

Board of Directors proposal for distribution of profits                         

The distributable funds at the disposal of the Annual General Meeting of the    
parent company Technopolis Plc amount to EUR 9,159,372. The Board of Directors  
proposes that a dividend of EUR 0.12 per share be paid out, totaling EUR        
6,881,441. The rest is to remain in the retained earnings account.              

Outlook for the future                                                          

Technopolis management expects the demand for its high-tech facilities and      
services to remain at a reasonable level in 2009. The management anticipates    
that the economic downturn, if protracted, may pose a challenge to the Group's  
growth targets. The company will continue to pursue measures aimed at           
safeguarding its financial performance also under difficult market conditions.  
The Group management expects the net sales and EBITDA to increase by 5% to 8% in
2009.                                                                           

In accordance with its growth strategy for 2012, Technopolis's objective is to  
have a presence in all the major Finnish high-tech hot spots and in two or three
other countries, in addition to Finland and Russia. The Group aims to increase  
its net sales by an average annual rate of 15 through both organic expansion as 
well as acquisition.                                                            

The Group's financial performance is determined by the general macroeconomic    
trends, client operations, financial markets and the yield requirements for     
properties. Developments in these areas may affect the Group's financial        
performance through changes in occupancy rates, the use of services, financing  
costs, the fair values of properties and office rent levels.
