The planned transaction in brief

The transaction will be executed through a partial demerger of Metso in which all assets and liabilities of Metso that relate to, or primarily serve, the Metso Minerals Business will transfer without liquidation of Metso to Outotec. The completion of the transaction is expected in the second quarter of 2020, subject to the approval by the EGMs of both Metso and Outotec, which was held on October 29, 2019, the statutory creditor hearing process and receipt of all required regulatory and other approvals.
