The Annual General Meeting of Metso Corporation was held today in Helsinki, Finland. The AGM approved the Financial Statements for 2011 and decided to discharge the members of the Board of Directors and the President and CEO of Metso Corporation from liability for the financial year 2011. The Annual General Meeting approved the proposals of the Board of Directors to authorize the Board to decide on the repurchase of the companyís own shares and on a share issue.

The dividend will be paid to shareholders who on the record date April 3, 2012 are registered as shareholders in the companyís shareholder register maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd. The dividend will be paid on April 12, 2012.
