Outokumpu's Extraordinary General Meeting, held today in Helsinki, approved the
proposals regarding authorisations to the Board of Directors to decide on a
share issue and a directed share issue.

Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on a share issue (rights offering)

The Extraordinary General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to undertake
a share issue for consideration pursuant to the shareholders' pre-emptive
subscription right. The Board of Directors has the right to decide upon the
offering to parties determined by the Board of Directors of any shares that may
remain unsubscribed for pursuant to the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription
right. A maximum number of 5 000 000 000 new shares may be issued in the share
issue. The Board of Directors is authorised to determine the other terms and
conditions of the share issue.

The authorisation of the Board of Directors to issue shares shall be in force
until 31 December 2012 and it revokes the share issue authorisation given by the
Annual General Meeting on 24 March 2011.

Outokumpu will separately announce the Board of Directors' resolution regarding
the rights offering after such a resolution has been made. The record date of
the rights offering will be determined based on the share issue resolution to be
made by the Board of Directors and will be announced through a stock exchange
release following such resolution by the Board of Directors.

Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on a directed share issue

The Extraordinary General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to undertake
a directed share issue for consideration in which ThyssenKrupp AG or its order
shall be entitled to subscribe for new shares in deviation from the pre-emptive
subscription right of the shareholders. The new shares can be paid by
contributing assets to Outokumpu (contribution in-kind). A maximum number of
2 200 000 000 new shares may be issued in the directed share issue in such a
manner that, as a result of the directed share issue, ThyssenKrupp AG or its
order will hold a maximum of 29.9 per cent of the then issued and outstanding
shares of Outokumpu after the completion of the directed share issue and the
exercise of the above-mentioned share issue authorisation relating to the rights
offering. The Board of Directors is authorised to determine the other terms and
conditions of the directed share issue.

The share issue authorisation of the Board of Directors shall be in force until
31 December 2013 and it does not revoke the above-mentioned share issue
authorisation relating to the rights offering.

The Board of Directors will decide on a directed share issue to ThyssenKrupp AG
or its order pursuant to this authorisation after the Board of Directors has
exercised the above-mentioned share issue authorisation relating to the rights
offering.
