Preliminary information about second quarter net sales and result as well as full year result

Vaisala Oyj   Stock exchange release   June 23, 2010   at  09.30 a.m. Vaisala expects its net sales to be at the same level as or slightly lower in the second quarter of 2010 than the corresponding period in 2009. The result is expected to be clearly unprofitable. The net sales and result are mainly affected by the temporary delays in shipments caused by efficiency measures implemented in May-June. The result of the second quarter is also affected by approximately EUR 3 million one-off costs from the ongoing profitability program that were communicated on June 17, 2010. The above-mentioned one-off items burden the net sales of the second quarter by approximately EUR 10 million and result by approximately EUR 8 million. We reiterate our estimate that Vaisala's net sales in 2010 will grow slightly compared to the preceding year. Uncertainty relating to the net sales and profitability towards the rest of the year remains. The development programs will continue to burden the result for the rest of the year. Hence contrary to the earlier estimate, Vaisala estimates that the profitability in 2010 will be slightly lower than in 2009. Vaisala's second quarter results are published on August 11, 2010.
