Shareholders' Nomination Board

Outokumpu’s Annual General Meeting in 2012 resolved to establish a Shareholders’ Nomination Board to annually prepare proposals to the
Annual General Meeting for the election, composition and remunerationof the members of the Board of Directors

In addition, the Annual General Meeting adopted a Charter of the Shareholders’ Nomination Board, which regulates the nomination and composition, and defines the tasks and duties of the Nomination
Board. According to the Charter, the Nomination Board consists of the representatives of Outokumpu’s four largest shareholders, registered in the Finnish book-entry securities system on October 1, who accept the assignment and that the Chairman of the Board should act as an expert member of the Nomination Board.

Holdings by a shareholder who under the Finnish Securities Markets Act has the obligation to disclose changes in shareholdings (flagging obligation) that are divided into several funds or registers will be
summed up when calculating the share of all the voting rights, provided that the shareholder presents a written request to that effect to the Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors no later than September 30 preceding the Annual General Meeting. Should a shareholder not wish to use its nomination right, the right transfers to the next largest shareholder who would otherwise not have a nomination right.
