Financial outlook for 2016 unchanged

The Group's adjusted operating result is expected to be positive.

Martin à Porta, President and CEO:

"Our adjusted operating result increased compared to the same quarter in 2015,
showing that our operational business is improving. Adjusted operating margin
increased in the Energy and Management Consulting Business Groups as well as
in Regional Operations, and remained stable in the Industry Business Group.
We see positive development in small and medium size orders, market activity
and sales prospects in general. However, the overall order intake decreased
compared to the previous year. Net sales increased in the Management
Consulting Business Group, remained stable in Regional Operations but
decreased in the Energy and Industry Business Groups.

Cash flow for the quarter was better than in the previous year, though the
year to date cash inflow is still unsatisfactory. We continue actions to
improve the working capital further and as a consequence we expect to see an
improvement in cash flow towards the end of the year.

Underperforming business units are improving and efforts to enhance
profitability continue. Our operational framework and transformation
programme is progressing. Adjusted items in the third quarter include
restructuring expenses amounting to EUR 2.1 million related to actions to
reduce fixed expenses. The ongoing investment in our new business management
system allows us to increase business transparency and simplify our
processes. There are clear actions underway to simplifying and empowering our
organisation, and to strengthen our core, so that we can prepare to scale up.

We are maintaining our outlook that the Group's adjusted operating result is
expected to be positive in 2016."

Market outlook 2016

The overall economic and market outlook for our sectors in 2016 remains
uncertain. In Europe the growth remains fragile, delaying economic recovery
and investment decisions. The developments in the European banking sector
increase uncertainty. On the other hand, the public sector spending in Europe
appears to be on the increase. Growth in the US is projected to remain
robust. Asian market economic growth is slowing down. In Brazil, there are
slight signs of an economic recovery, though not yet visible in our business.
The market environment in the Middle East has become more challenging.

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 improving. However, in the graphic paper industry the decline
in structural consumption is set to continue. The energy market is facing
structural changes in Europe.
