OKMETIC'S EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING TO CONVENE ON 7 JULY 2016 AT 9.00 A.M.
The shareholders of Okmetic Oyj are given notice to the extraordinary general meeting to be held on Thursday 7 July 2016 at 9.00 a.m. at Okmetic's headquarters, Piitie 2, Vantaa, Finland.

National Silicon Industry Group's ("NSIG") wholly owned subsidiary NSIG Finland S.à r.l. ("NSIG Finland") has made a voluntary public tender offer to purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares and option rights in Okmetic that are not owned by Okmetic or any of its subsidiaries. According to NSIG's press release published on 10 June 2016, the tender offer will be completed in accordance with its terms and conditions after the expiry of the extended offer period on 14 June 2016 and the settlement of the completion trades will take place on or about 22 June 2016. Based on preliminary information on the acceptances received by 27 May 2016, the shares tendered in the tender offer represent approximately 92.53 % of all the shares and votes in Okmetic (excluding the treasury shares held by Okmetic).
