Metso is holding its Capital Markets Day in London today, September 29, 2015.
Various topics will be discussed at the event, such as the Group's strategy
and its implementation, financial performance and financial targets, as well
as growth prospects and development initiatives of Metso's three business
areas.

In his opening presentation, Metso's President and CEO Matti Kähkönen will
highlight Metso's strong foundation, where its strategy is based on. This
foundation and Metso's strong global positions in its core businesses will be
leveraged to grow the company and improve its profitability. After the
opening, Presidents of Metso's three business areas, Minerals, Services, and
Flow Control, will share their insight on the market development and discuss
their plans to contribute to the implementation of Metso's strategy.

President and CEO Matti Kähkönen will also repeat Metso's unchanged financial
targets: to grow faster than the market, to reach at least 15% EBITA margin
by 2017, and to reach at least 30% return on capital employed before taxes.
Kähkönen will add that in the light of current market conditions, however,
reaching the 15% EBITA margin target on time has become more difficult.

In addition, Kähkönen reconfirms Metso's financial guidance for 2015
(published on July 23, 2015), which is excluding the divested Process
Automation Systems business: Metso's net sales in 2015 is estimated to be
between EUR 3,000 million and EUR 3,200 million and its EBITA margin before
non-recurring items is estimated to be around 12.5 percent of net sales
(12.0-13.0%).

Metso's Capital Markets Day will begin in London at 1:00 pm local time. The
presentation materials will be available at Metso's web site
(www.metso.com/cmd) when the event begins. A direct webcast will be available
via Metso's web site. Recordings of the presentations will be posted on the
site after the event.
