Outokumpu sold its holding in Tibnor AB

STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE

24 May at 9.30 am EET

Outokumpu has sold its 15% holding in Tibnor AB, a leading Nordic distributor of steel and metals, to SSAB. Total consideration of the sale amounts to EUR 44 million and will be paid in cash. Outokumpu will book a tax-free capital gain of some EUR 36 million as financial income in the Group's second quarter accounts. The transaction will have a marginal impact on Outokumpu's gearing due to the fair-value accounting of this holding on Outokumpu's balance sheet.
