STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 8 Mar 2006

IMPLEMENTATION OF JAAKKO PÖYRY GROUP OYJ'S SHARE SPLIT

JAAKKO PÖYRY GROUP OYJ     Stock Exchange Announcement
                           March 8, 2006 at 3.15 p.m.

IMPLEMENTATION OF JAAKKO PÖYRY GROUP OYJ'S SHARE SPLIT

The Jaakko Pöyry Group Oyj's Annual General Meeting decided to increase
the number of the shares of the Company in proportion to the ownership
of the shareholders without increasing the share capital (share split).
The share split will be realised so that all shares of the Company with
an accounting par value of EUR 1.00 will be split so that each share
will entitle to four (4) new shares with an accounting par value of EUR
0.25 each. The change is expected to be registered in the Trade Register
on March 13, 2006.

The number of the Company's shares will quadruple from 14 545 036 shares
to 58 180 144 shares. The share capital remains unchanged, i.e. EUR
14 545 036. The share split will be implemented in the book-entry system
and it does not require any measures from the shareholders. The new
shares are expected to be available for public trading on the Helsinki
Stock Exchange as of March 14, 2006.
