May 19, 2014 at 8.30 am (CET+1)

Kemira has signed an agreement with CDC Cartel Damage Claims Hydrogen Peroxide
SA and CDC Holding SA (together "CDC") to settle a lawsuit in Helsinki,
Finland. The settlement concerns claims assigned to CDC based on which CDC
claimed compensation for alleged damages relating to the alleged old
infringement of competition law in the hydrogen peroxide business during
1994-2000. CDC has agreed to withdraw the damage claims and Kemira has agreed
to pay to CDC a compensation of EUR 18.5 million and will compensate CDC for
its legal costs.

Kemira is satisfied with the settlement as it removes the uncertainty related
to the litigation outcome. The settlement also includes significant
limitations of liabilities for Kemira regarding the still pending legal
actions filed by CDC entities in the Regional Court of Dortmund, Germany in
2009 and in the municipal court in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 2011. Kemira
will continue to defend itself against these claims.
