General Meeting of Shareholders on 26 March 2002.

the offer of the Company. Warrant certificates shall, upon

transferred to the book-entry system.
3. Right to warrants
The warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders' pre-
emptive right to subscription, be issued to the personnel of the

warrants. Warrants shall be issued to Veniamo Invest Oy to the

the Citycon Group before 1 September 2004 for any other reason
than retirement or death then such person shall without delay

Should the Company, before the subscription for shares, raise
its share capital through an issue of new shares, or issue
convertible bonds or warrants relating to shareholding in
Citycon Oyj, a warrant holder shall have the same right as or an
equal right to that of a shareholder. Equality is reached in the
manner determined by the Board of Directors by adjusting the
number of shares available for subscription, the subscription
price or both of these.
Should the Company, before the subscription for shares, increase
its share capital by way of a bonus issue, the subscription
ratio shall be amended so that the ratio to the share capital of
shares to be subscribed for by virtue of warrants remains
unchanged. If the number of shares that can be subscribed for by
virtue of one warrant should be a fraction, the fractional part
shall be taken into account by reducing the subscription price.

If the Company reduces its share capital before the subscription
of shares, the subscription right accorded by the terms of the
warrant shall be adjusted accordingly, as specified in the
resolution to reduce the share capital.

of shares, the warrant owner shall be given an opportunity to
exercise his/her subscription right before the liquidation

combination merger or if the Company resolves to be divided, the
warrant owner shall, before the merger or division, be given the
right to subscribe for the shares within the period of time
determined by the Board of Directors. After such date no
subscription right shall exist.
If the Company resolves to acquire its own shares after the
share subscription period has begun by an offer made to all
shareholders, the warrant owner shall be made an equivalent
offer. In other cases the acquisition of the Company's own
shares does not require the Company to take any action in
relation to the warrant. If according to the Companies Act a
redemption right is created for a shareholder to the shares of
the other shareholders, the warrant owner shall be given a right
equal to that of the shareholders to sell his warrants to the
shareholder with the redemption right.
If the nominal value of the share is changed while the share
capital remains unchanged, the subscription terms shall be
amended so that the total nominal value of the shares available
for subscription and the total subscription price remain the

resulting technical amendments to the terms and conditions.

Board of Directors. The warrant documentation is kept available
for inspection at the head office of Citycon Oyj in Helsinki.
