Helsinki, Finland. The reception of persons who have registered for

3 Election of persons to scrutinize the minutes and to supervise the counting of votes

4 Recording the legality of the meeting

5 Recording the attendance at the meeting and adoption of the list of votes

8 Resolution on the use of the profit shown on the balance sheet and the payment of dividend

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that a
dividend of EUR 1.10 per share and an additional dividend of EUR 0.25
be paid from the distributable assets for the financial year that
ended on 31 December 2015. The dividend shall be paid to shareholders
who on the record date for the dividend payment on 24 March 2016 are
recorded in the shareholders' register held by Euroclear Finland Oy
or the register of Euroclear Sweden AB. The dividend shall be paid as
from 8 April 2016.

9 Resolution on the discharge of the members of the Board of Directors and the CEO from liability

10 Resolution on the remuneration of the members of the Board of Directors

The Shareholders' Nomination Board proposes that the remuneration of
the Board of Directors will be annual fees and remain unchanged as
follows: EUR 83 000 to the Chairman, EUR 52 500 to the Deputy
Chairman and EUR 34 500 to the ordinary members of the Board of
Directors. The same fee as to the Board Deputy Chairman will be paid
to the Chairman of Board Committee unless the same individual is also
the Chairman or Deputy Chairman of the Board. In addition to these
fees it is proposed that the member of the Board of the Directors be
paid a remuneration of EUR 800 for each Board meeting and for each
permanent or temporary committee meeting. It is the company's
practice not to pay fees to Board members who are also employees of
the Tieto Group.

The Shareholders' Nomination Board proposes that 40% of the fixed
annual remuneration be paid in Tieto Corporation's shares purchased
from the market. The shares will be purchased within two weeks from
the release of the interim report January 1 - March 31, 2016.
According to the proposal, the Annual General Meeting will resolve to
acquire the shares directly on behalf of the members of the Board
which is an approved manner to acquire the company's shares in
accordance with the applicable insider rules. The Shareholders'
Nomination Board is of the opinion that increasing long-term
shareholding of the Board members will benefit all the shareholders.

11 Resolution on the number of members of the Board of Directors

The Shareholders' Nomination Board proposes to the Annual General
Meeting that the number of Board members be eight.

12 Election of members of the Board of Directors and the Chairman

The Shareholders' Nomination Board proposes to the Annual General
Meeting that the current Board members Kurt Jofs, Sari Pajari, Markku
Pohjola, Endre Rangnes, Jonas Synnergren and Lars Wollung be
re-elected and in addition Johanna Lamminen and Harri-Pekka Kaukonen
are proposed to be elected as new Board members. Eva Lindqvist and
Teuvo Salminen have informed that they are not available for
re-election. The Shareholders' Nomination Board proposes that Markku
Pohjola shall be re-elected as the Chairman of the Board of
Directors.

The term of office of the Board members ends at the close of the next
Annual General Meeting. All the proposed candidates have given their
consent to being elected.

Johanna Lamminen (born 1966) is the Chief Executive Officer of Gasum
Oy, a Finnish company offering natural gas and biogas for energy
production, industry, homes and transport. Previously, she held
executive positions in Danske Bank Oyj, Evli Pankki Oyj and SSH
Communications Security Oyj. Johanna has graduated as LicSc. (Tech.)

2018.

13 Resolution on the remuneration of the auditor

The Audit and Risk Committee of the Board of Directors proposes to the
Annual General Meeting that the auditor to be elected at the Annual
General Meeting be reimbursed according to the auditor's invoice and
in compliance with the purchase principles approved by the committee.

14 Election of auditor

The Audit and Risk Committee of the Board of Directors proposes to the
Annual General meeting that the firm of authorised public accountants
PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy be re-elected as the company's auditor for
the financial year 2016.

15 Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of the company's own shares

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the
Board of Directors be authorized to decide on the repurchase of the
company's own shares as follows:

The amount of own shares to be repurchased shall not exceed 7 200 000
shares, which currently corresponds to approximately 10% of all the
shares in the company. Only the unrestricted equity of the company
can be used to repurchase own shares. Own shares can be repurchased
at a price formed in public trading on the date of the repurchase or
at a price otherwise formed on the market.

The Board of Directors decides how the share repurchase will be
carried out. Own shares can be repurchased inter alia by using
derivatives. The company's own shares can be repurchased otherwise
than in proportion to the shareholdings of the shareholders (directed
repurchase).

The authorization cancels previous unused authorizations to decide on
the repurchase of the company's own shares. The authorization is
effective until the next Annual General Meeting, however, no longer
than until 30 April 2017.

16 Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as options and other special rights entitling to shares

The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the
Board of Directors be authorized to decide on the issuance of shares
as well as on the issuance of option rights and other special rights
entitling to shares referred to in chapter 10 section 1 of the
Companies Act in one or more tranches as follows:

The amount of shares to be issued based on the authorization
(including shares to be issued based on the special rights) shall not
exceed 7 200 000 shares, which currently corresponds to approximately
10% of all the shares in the company. However, out of the above
maximum amount of shares to be issued no more than 700 000 shares,
currently corresponding to less than 1 % of all of the shares in the
company, may be issued as part of the company's share-based incentive
programs.

The Board of Directors decides on the terms and conditions of the
issuance of shares, option rights and of special rights entitling to
shares. The authorization concerns both the issuance of new shares as
well as the transfer of treasury shares. The issuance of shares and
of special rights entitling to shares may be carried out in deviation
from the shareholders' pre-emptive right (directed issue).

The authorization cancels previous unused authorizations to decide on
the issuance of shares and on the issuance of options and other
special rights entitling to shares. The authorization is effective
until the next Annual General Meeting, however, no longer than until
30 April 2017.
