PROJECTIONS FOR THE NEAR FUTURE The customer industries are estimated to grow moderately in Okmetic's main product groups in 2012. The demand of semiconductor industry started increasing in the beginning of the year, and this trend seems to continue in Okmetic's central customer areas in the second half of the year. The development of sensor wafer demand is estimated to be somewhat more stable in 2012 than the demand for semiconductor wafers. The growth of sensor wafer demand seems to focus on the second half of the year. Technology sales comprise mainly solar crystal sales. Okmetic's long-term shipment contracts have terminated and the order backlog consists of shorter- term shipments. The lowered price level throughout the solar cell industry's value chain will restrict opportunities for profitable business in the end of the year. In the second half of the year Okmetic's technology sales will clearly remain under the level of the beginning of the year. The recent development of exchange rates and the possible development during the rest of the year, especially the strengthening of US dollar against euro, have a positive impact on Okmetic's net sales and operating profit. The company retains the existing guidance, according to which the net sales and operating profit for 2012 are estimated to exceed the level of 2011. PRESIDENT KAI SEIKKU: "Okmetic's sales made a strong upturn in April-June, as anticipated. In the second quarter, the net sales rose around 19 percent compared to the first quarter of the year and exceeded also the level of the strong comparison period by 3.3 percent. In the beginning of the year, the market share has risen to a record level in the product groups important to the company. The semiconductor wafer shipments were doing particularly well. The fab lite partner network that is important to the company's supply chain has been made to react quickly to the strengthening demand. In the current year, a significant part of Okmetic's MEMS and discrete semiconductor customers are transferring from 150mm silicon wafers to 200mm wafers. The company is increasing both its in-house and subcontracted production capacity and seeking more growth from 200mm wafers in the future. The operation of the sales office that was established in Hong Kong in autumn 2011 and that is serving Asian markets outside Japan has started well. Asia's proportion of the net sales is growing, although the difficulties of the consumer electronics industry in Japan are reflected in the slowing down of demand on the Japanese market. Also the North American sales developed favourably in the second quarter. Technology sales were at a good level in the first half of the year. The rest of the year will be more challenging in regard to technology sales, because multiannual shipment contracts have terminated and the market situation is difficult worldwide. Technology sales in the second half will clearly remain below the sales of the beginning of the year. In April-June, the operating profit strengthened clearly compared to the first quarter and nearly reached the level of the comparison period. Because the profitability of business improved in the second quarter, the operating profit in the first half (9.8% of net sales) already nearly reached the minimum level of 10 percent which is the company's long-term objective. The clear decline in the profit for the period in relation to the comparison period was caused not only by a lower level of operating profit but also by a difference of nearly 1.7 million euro in income tax entered as expenses. Along with the good profitability development in 2010-2011, Okmetic managed to deduct the earlier confirmed tax losses from its result by the end of 2011. The difference between the net cash flow of the review period and the comparison period is explained by the lower accumulated profits, taxes paid in the beginning of 2012 and increase in working capital. The investment programme supporting Okmetic's growth strategy is proceeding according to plans. In addition to investing in the expansion of SOI wafer production, the company invests in increasing the production capacity at the Vantaa plant. The added value of crystal growing will be increased, the bottlenecks of production lines will be removed to increase the total capacity, and the production capacity of 200mm wafers will be increased. The aim is more flexible production that is capable of a sales mix of a higher added value."

One of the fastest growing sectors is MEMS products for consumer applications such as microphones and gyroscopes. In the coming years auto focus actuators, MEMS oscillators and MEMS switches are estimated to be significant growth areas in consumer applications. (IHS iSuppli, IC Insights, Yole) Nowadays, silicon-on- insulator (SOI) technology is widely used in the manufacture of these next generation products, and the share of SOI technology is estimated to continue its growth. Okmetic is amongst the pioneering suppliers who provide products and services based on SOI technology to the sensor industry. Semiconductor industry The US dollar based sales of the semiconductor industry has continued to grow during the second quarter of the year, but the growth rate has been slower than anticipated, and the demand was not yet able to reach the last year's level in the beginning of the second quarter. The estimates for the sale development in 2012 have been revised downwards, and they settle now at a level of 0.2-4 percent of annual growth (IHS iSuppli, Gartner, SIA). The strengthening of demand from the level at the end of 2011 started during the first quarter of 2012, and it is also expected to continue during the second half of 2012. In 2013, the growth rate of demand is expected to reach a level of seven percent (SIA). The demand for semiconductors is boosted by both strongly increasing applications, such as tablet computers, as well as by the uplift of PC sales (Gartner). In the long run, the growth rate of semiconductor demand is still estimated to remain at a yearly level of 5-9 percent (IDC, IC Insights). The growth rate of semiconductors used in power management and energy efficient electronics is estimated to slightly exceed the semiconductor market average (IHS iSuppli). Solar cell industry The use of solar energy as a significant source of electricity production is becoming more popular worldwide. The growth of power plant installations is shifting from Europe to China, the United States, Japan and India. However, the annual market growth is estimated to moderate after an especially strong phase of growth. The significant overproduction following the market moderation continues in the short run and leads to declining prices and acceleration of the ongoing structural change in the industry. Silicon wafer market According to the statistics published in May 2012 by SMG, the group of silicon wafer suppliers in SEMI (a global umbrella organisation for semiconductor materials and equipment industry), the surface area of wafer shipments in the whole silicon wafer industry in the first quarter of 2012 rose by a percent compared to the shipments of the last quarter of 2011. Compared to the first quarter of 2011 the shipments decreased by 11 percent. The market is estimated to grow in 2012 compared to 2011, but the growth is estimated to be moderate. Okmetic's central customer areas in the silicon wafer market In line with its strategy, Okmetic seeks for special areas of the entire silicon wafer market that have greater growth rates than the market average and in which the company has special expertise. Okmetic supplies primarily 150mm and 200mm wafers. The sensor/MEMS industry is Okmetic's central growth area. The MEMS market grows as portable consumer products, automotive electronics, and industrial process control increase. In the semiconductor market, Okmetic's growth areas include discrete and power semiconductors. The growth areas of these markets are i.a. components used in the production of renewable energy, increasing automotive electronics, portable consumer products, as well as different solutions related to power supply and efficiency improvement. SALES In January-June, Okmetic's net sales amounted to 41.4 (43.8) million euro. There was a decrease of 5.5 percent (growth 21.0%) for the comparison period due to the weak economic situation. The increase in demand that began in the end of the first quarter continued in the second quarter. During the second quarter, the company's market share grew in the product groups which are important to the company, and sales improved clearly because of the strengthened economic situation.

In the beginning of the year sensor wafer sales were weighed down by the customers' bloated inventory levels. The demand for sensor wafers picked up clearly in the second quarter, and the demand is estimated to remain strong in the second half of the year. The semiconductor industry's demand that started to strengthen in the end of the first quarter remained at a strong level in the second quarter, and had a positive influence on the semiconductor wafer sales. However, due to the weak first quarter, the value of shipments in January-June was 2.1 percent lower than in the corresponding period last year. The strong demand for semiconductor wafers is estimated to continue in the second half of the year. In January-June, technology sales comprised mainly solar crystal sales. The value of shipments decreased by 15.7 percent in January-June compared to the corresponding period last year. There is uncertainty related to the demand for technology sales in the second half of the year caused by the industry's market trends, and the price levels have declined significantly throughout the entire value chain.

The group has ensured the sufficiency of cash funds by a committed credit facility of 6.0 million euro. On 30 June 2012, 3.0 million euro of the credit facility was in use. Return on equity amounted to 9.2 (18.2) percent. The company's equity ratio was 73.2 (78.3) percent. Equity per share was 3.56 (3.49) euro. INVESTMENTS In January-June, Okmetic's capital expenditure amounted to 7.0 (6.2) million euro. The investments concerned mainly the board's decision in April 2011 to increase SOI wafer production capacity by extending the Vantaa plant. The around 30 million euro investment programme, to be implemented in 2011-2013, includes the plant extension and different kinds of production equipment. Building of the plant extension started in August 2011. The investment programme is proceeding according to plans. PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT In January-June, the company expensed 1.1 (1.2) million euro in product development projects. Product development costs accounted for 2.8 (2.7) percent of net sales. The product development costs have not been capitalised. Product development has been allocated to SOI wafers and high and low resistivity wafers. PERSONNEL On average, Okmetic employed 364 (362) people in January-June. At the end of the period, Okmetic employed 390 (389) people of which 348 worked in Finland, 37 in the US, four in Japan, and one in Hong Kong. OKMETIC'S CORPORATE GOVERNANCE Okmetic Oyj's annual general meeting, which was held on 12 April 2012, adopted the annual accounts and the consolidated annual accounts for 2011 and discharged the company's management from liability. It was decided that a dividend of 0.28 euro per share would be distributed for 2011. The dividend was paid on Tuesday 24 April 2012. The annual general meeting decided also, in accordance with the proposal of the board of directors, to authorise the board of directors to decide upon its discretion on the payment of an additional dividend, should the company's financial situation permit this. The additional dividend, including all possible separate decisions on dividend payment, may amount up to a maximum of 0.40 euro per share and 15,000,000 euro in total. Moreover, the general meeting approved the proposal of the board of directors to authorise the board of directors to decide on the repurchase and/or the acceptance as pledge of the company's own shares as well as on the issuance of shares, the transfer of the company's own shares, and the issuance of special rights entitling to shares. It was decided that there would be five members on the company's board of directors. Mr. Henri Österlund, Mr. Tapani Järvinen, Mr. Hannu Martola, and Ms. Mervi Paulasto-Kröckel were re-elected as members of the board of directors until the end of the next annual general meeting, and Mr. Mikko Puolakka was elected as a new member. The board of directors elected Henri Österlund as its chairman and Tapani Järvinen as its vice chairman in its organisation meeting held immediately after the annual general meeting. Authorised Public Accountant PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy was elected as auditor, with APA Mikko Nieminen having the principal responsibility. Authorisations given to the board of directors and other decisions of the annual general meeting have been notified in a stock exchange release published on 12 April 2012. BUSINESS RISKS IN THE NEAR FUTURE There have been no significant changes in the company's near future business risks and uncertainties for now despite the ongoing euro crisis. Okmetic's business operations are exposed to risks which may arise from the company's operations or changes in the business environment. Okmetic's silicon wafer sales are targeted at the sensor and semiconductor producers in the electronics industry. The demand for semiconductor wafers is sensitive to economic fluctuations and changes in the market situation can be sudden and dramatic. The demand for sensor wafers is more stable. The proliferation of sensors in consumer electronics applications may, however, increase the susceptibility of this market too to economic fluctuations. Technology sales comprise mainly crystal sales, which is predominantly affected by the economic situation of the solar cell industry. Okmetic's share of the global silicon wafer market is around one percent and the market prices have a notable effect on the price development of Okmetic's products. The company only has considerable pricing power with its own special products. The pricing of other wafers is mainly based on global market price. Okmetic operates globally, and therefore the company's business operations are affected by risks due to currency fluctuations, consisting of the cash flows of purchases and sales. A significant part of sales are conducted in US dollars. The Japanese yen is another notable trading currency. Despite hedging, the company remains exposed to exchange rate fluctuations. Substantial volumes of electricity are used in Okmetic's production. Despite hedging, the company is exposed to fluctuations in the price of electricity. The company risks and uncertainty factors are dealt more profoundly in the company's annual report of 2011. SHARES AND SHAREHOLDERS On 30 June 2012, Okmetic Oyj's paid-up share capital, as entered in the Finnish Trade Register, was 11,821,250 euro. The number of shares was 17,287,500. The shares have no nominal value attached. Each share entitles its holder to one vote at general meetings. The company has one class of shares. The company's shares are included in the Finnish book-entry securities system.
