Elektrobit (EB) temporarily lays off 90 employees at the maximum, targeting
cost savings of about EUR 0.8 million in its Wireless Business Segment

Elektrobit (EB) has yesterday concluded personnel negotiations in its Wireless
Business Segment in Finland, started on April 30, 2014 to adjust its cost
level due to the weakened order book for R&D services in the next few months.
The company has decided to temporarily lay off 90 persons at the maximum, for
90 days at the maximum, part-time or full-time. With temporary layoffs EB
targets to achieve EUR 0.8 million cost savings, which are expected to
materialize mainly during the third quarter of the year. Currently, Wireless
Business Segment has 486 employees.

The underlying reasons for the layoffs are decreased demand of R&D services
for mobile telecommunications network equipment and delays in starting new
projects, which have resulted in a decreased order book for R&D services for
the next few months. The decreased order book for R&D services for the next
few months and the targeted cost savings by the temporary layoffs are taken
into account in the company's outlook for 2014, presented in the interim
report January-March 2014, published on April 30, 2014. The interim report
January-March 2014 is available at the company's internet pages
atwww.elektrobit.com.
