Martin à Porta, President and CEO:

"Our adjusted operating result increased compared to the same quarter in 2015,
showing continued improvement in our operational business. Adjusted operating
margin increased in the Energy and Management Consulting Business Groups,
remained on a solid level in the Industry Business Group and declined in
Regional Operations. Accordingly operating cash flow of the quarter excluding
taxes improved compared to the corresponding period in the previous year. We
also saw an increase in our order stock as an outcome from a more client
focussed organisation.

There has been strong operational improvement in the organisation. Employee
engagement has increased, resulting in better motivation and energy in our
teams. I am also happy that we have been able to recruit some new key
employees to different levels of our organisation. Together with the good
progress on our new business management system, which better equips our
employees, this will lead to increased margins in our projects. There are
also encouraging signs that our new offerings in the areas of bioenergy,
health and safety and operational excellence are getting good response from
the market. All in all our sales efforts have resulted in better prospects
and opportunities in the market. We believe we can materialise a number of
these in order intake in the next few months."

Board of Directors' proposal for disposal of distributable funds

The Group's parent company Pöyry PLC's net result for 2016 amounted to EUR
4,383,237.51 and retained earnings were EUR 25,840,897.23. The total
distributable earnings were EUR 30,224,134.74. The Board of Directors of
Pöyry PLC will propose to the Annual General Meeting on 9 March 2017 that no
dividend will be paid for the year 2016.

Financial outlook for 2017

The Group's adjusted operating result is estimated to improve.

Market outlook 2017

Uneven economic developments among the major economies are expected to
continue in 2017. The growth in the Eurozone has been modest. There are
indications of market recovery, but high unemployment may weaken consumer
demand and slow down the improving economic growth. Despite some signs of an
economic recovery in Brazil, the market situation is still tight. At the same
time, growth in the U.S. and in the majority of Asian countries remains
positive, fuelled by stronger domestic demand.

For the businesses relevant to Pöyry, the sector specific outlook remains
mixed. In the forest product industry sectors, such as packaging and tissue,
the outlook is good, whereas in the graphic paper industry the demand
continues to decline. The energy market is facing structural changes in
Europe.

Events after the reporting period

As part of its improved client focus, Pöyry concentrates its globally-focused
competences and process know-how in Pulp, Paper&Board, Chemicals&Biorefining
and Mining&Metals in one global Industry organisation. This enables us to
develop smart solutions and new innovations in connected teams, addressing
global megatrends such as bioeconomy, efficiency and digitalisation.

Pöyry is reinforcing its project implementation approach and global delivery
model in project management, health and safety, engineering and construction
management by bringing together its industry-related operations in Brazil,
Finland and Germany from Regional Operations to the Industry Business Group.

Pöyry's financial reporting will continue to be based on the following four
reporting segments: Management Consulting Business Group; Industry Business
Group; Energy Business Group; and Regional Operations. Restated figures will
be published before the 4 August 2017 publication of the half year financial
report January - June 2017.
