ETTEPLAN CONSIDERS ISSUANCE OF HYBRID BONDS                                     

Etteplan Oyj is considering the issuance of hybrid capital bonds. The potential 
issue is expected to be launched in the near future subject to market
conditions. The targeted size of the issue is approximately EUR 10 million.
Sofia Bank is the sole bookrunner of the potential issue and Etteplan's
financial adviser in the arrangement. 

Hybrid bond is a bond that is subordinated to the company's other debt
obligations and treated as equity in the IFRS financial statements. Hybrid
bonds do not confer to holders the right to vote at shareholder meetings and do
not dilute the holdings of the current shareholders.
