OUTOTEC OYJ STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE SEPTEMBER 30, 2015 at 12.30 PM

Outotec Board decided to continue Employee Share Savings Plan in 2016

Outotec's Board of Directors has decided to continue Outotec's Employee Share
Savings Plan (announced on September 25, 2012) for the calendar year 2016.
The Plan commenced on January 1, 2013 and has continued for three saving
periods.

"Competent and motivated people are essential to Outotec's success in growing
the business and making sustainable profits. I am very pleased that our Board
decided to continue the Employee Share Savings Plan, in which on average 32
percent of our people globally have been participating during three years.
The Plan was awarded in 2013 by Global Equity Organization for its versatile
high quality communication, high participation rate and effort used in
implementation", says Outotec CEO Pertti Korhonen. "I believe that it
benefits all our stakeholders and contributes to the alignment of the
interests of our employees and shareholders."

Outotec employees have a possibility to save a proportion of their salary for
purchasing Outotec shares. To encourage participation, Outotec offers each
employee participating in the Plan one free share for each two acquired
shares after a designated holding period of approximately three years. Free
shares are taxable income for the recipient and will be paid partly in
Outotec's shares and partly in cash. The cash proportion is intended for
covering taxes and tax-related payments.

The Employee Share Savings Plan is offered for Outotec employees globally in
countries where there are no local legal, taxation or administrative
restraints. The maximum monthly saving is five per cent and the minimum is
two per cent of each participant's gross base salary during one month. The
total amount of all savings in 2016 may not exceed EUR 6 million.

Shares will be acquired with the accumulated savings at the market price
quarterly, after the publication of Outotec's interim results, commencing
from April 2016. Any dividends paid on purchased shares will be reinvested
into additional shares on the following purchase date. These shares will have
equal rights to free shares. Participation in the Plan is voluntary to
employees.
