Outotec Oyj: Reclassification of product management costs in Outotec's income statement

OUTOTEC OYJ STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE APRIL 8, 2015 at 9.45 AM

RECLASSIFICATION OF PRODUCT MANAGEMENT COSTS IN OUTOTEC'S INCOME STATEMENT

In Outotec's income statement all costs related to technical product
management have been included as of January 1, 2015, in Research and
Development (R&D) expenses, and all costs related to commercial product
management have been included in Selling and Marketing expenses. Previously
some of the costs related to product management activities were reported in
the Cost of Sales above the Gross Margin in the income statement.

Since 2011, Outotec has been developing and deploying uniform global business
processes and related information technology platforms. The company has now
established a more comprehensive technical product management process as part
of its R&D, and a commercial product management process as part of its
selling and marketing. The reclassification of product management costs is
consistent with the redefinition of the product management business processes
and reflects the true nature of these activities in the profit and loss
statement.

When applying the reclassification to Outotec's 2014 income statement, EUR
19.6 million transfers from Cost of Sales to R&D expenses, and EUR 6.9
million to Selling and Marketing expenses.

Reclassification does not impact Outotec's sales, EBITA, EBIT or 2015
financial guidance.
