Ari Kohonen, President and CEO, comments on the reporting period: - Net sales and operating result for the third quarter increased clearly; in other words, the favorable trend continued. The development of the entire reporting period was also positive. - Our main business area, Building & Construction, increased its net sales by nearly 17% during the reporting period, and its operating result was considerably better than in the comparison period in 2009. Also, the Q3 net sales increased. The growth of license sales remained at the same level as during the first two quarters. The good development of maintenance sales continued, increasing on the previous year. - The development by market area remained similar to the second quarter. The Nordic countries, the Middle East and India were still the most successful. Sales also picked up in several Western European countries. The United States continued as Tekla's largest individual market in January-September, but sales there remained at the same level as before. - Net sales of the Infra & Energy business area increased by approximately 8 percent during the reporting period, but its operating result decreased slightly. In the last quarter net sales and operating result are estimated to increase. - The construction industry is moving to a model-based way of working, and the expansion of our product offering will continue. In accordance with accounting regulations, 0.5 million euros of R&D expenses have been capitalized during the reporting period in connection with longer-term development of new technology and clearly novel customer offering. - The number of personnel increased by 14 during the third quarter. Since the beginning of the year, the number of personnel has increased by 21 employees. We have increased recruitment in order to be able to utilize the market potential in sight. The Board of Directors does not change its full-year net sales and result forecast. Net sales are estimated to increase by approximately 15% on the year before and the operating result percentage to be 15 to 20 percent. - - - Tekla will organize an information meeting for analysts and media at WTC Helsinki (meeting room Marski), Aleksanterinkatu 17, on November 3, 2010 at 12:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. A conference call in English will take place on the same day starting at 3:00 p.m. Finnish time. The telephone number is +358 9 231 44 877, code: 160305#. - - - Tekla Corporation drives the evolution of digital information models with its software, providing a growing competitive advantage to customers in the construction and infrastructure industries. Tekla's net sales for 2009 were 50 million euros and operating result nearly 7 million euros. International operations accounted for over 80% of net sales. Tekla has customers in almost 100 countries, offices in 15 countries and a worldwide partner network. Tekla Group currently employs nearly 500 people, of whom almost 200 work outside of the headquarters in Finland. Tekla was established in 1966, and is one of the longest-operating Finnish software companies. www.tekla.com - - - NET SALES AND PROFITABILITY * Net sales of Tekla Group for January-September 2010 were 40.94 (35.78 in January-September 2009) million euros. * Net sales increased by 14.4%. * Operating result was 6.89 (4.61) million euros. * Operating result percentage was 16.8 (12.9). * Earnings per share were 0.24 (0.16) euros. * Return on investment was 32.0 (22.8) percent. * Return on equity was 23.9 (15.9) percent.

The software offers open integration with other programs and models imported from them, supporting all the phases of the construction process Tekla Structures is a comprehensive solution for structural engineering, design and production of steel structures and precast units, reinforced concrete detailing as well as site and construction management. Tekla's position as a supplier of 3D modeling software is strong and the number of users is increasing despite the building industry's challenging situation. Customers in the building industry are seeking tools that make their operations more efficient, which is what Tekla's products are. Information modeling is gaining a stronger foothold in structural design and other stages of the building process. The benefits of information modeling are seen more clearly in site management in particular. Demand has fluctuated strongly in license-based sales. Particularly from fall 2008 onward, the development of the building industry was negative until the end of 2009 in nearly all of Tekla's key market areas. Favorable development has taken place in the demand this year. The net sales of B&C amounted to 30.87 (26.44) million euros for January- September 2010. Net sales increased by 16.8% compared to the corresponding period the previous year. Approximately one fifth of license sales were generated by non-structural steel engineering and detailing offering. This share was considerably higher in the Nordic countries. B&C's operating result was 5.97 (3.67) million euros and operating result percentage was 19.3% (13.9%). During the third quarter, B&C's net sales increased to 10.68 (8.98) million euros. The operating result was 3.05 (2.19) million euros, or 28.6% (24.4%) of net sales. International operations accounted for 95% (96%) of B&C's net sales in January- September 2010. The development by market area in the third quarter remained similar to the previous quarter. The Nordic countries, the Middle East and India were still the most successful. Sales also picked up in several Western European countries. In terms of the three first quarters as a whole, the United States continues as Tekla's largest individual market, but sales remained at the same level as before. India, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and France are examples of successful markets. It is very favorable for Tekla that the building industry's move to information- model-based 3D processes from traditional 2D ways of working continues. Because of this, the business area's long-term outlook continues to be promising. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is consolidating its position in the building industry. BIM means that the information of the product model is transferred and shared between the parties of the construction process. This expands the cooperation between the parties of the construction process. In order to facilitate cooperation, the interoperability of software is increased further and data exchange between software systems is improved, so that customers are able to choose the product that is suited the best for a specific task. After the reporting period, at the beginning of November, Tekla and Autodesk announced a collaboration to enable better compatibility between their respective Revit and Tekla Structures software. New features are being developed to these BIM software platforms in order to exchange data between the software smoothly in the different phases of the building process. In April, Tekla announced that it had signed a framework agreement with the Swedish company Sweco. Tekla Structures' functionality for cast-in-place was selected as the "Most Innovative Product" at the North American construction industry's annual "World of Concrete" event in March. During the first quarter, Tekla established a regional office in Singapore to serve customers throughout Southeast Asia. At the same time, the product development activity in Malaysia was transferred to Finland. Measures against software piracy continued both by own efforts and in cooperation with other parties, such as BSA. The efforts are bearing fruit, even though piracy will probably never be eradicated completely. The product development of Tekla Structures concentrated on development that supports the advance of BIM, i.e., sharing and utilizing the models between the parties. With regard to product development, investments were increased in longer-term development of new technology and completely new types of customer offerings. The annual main version of Tekla Structures was released at the beginning of February 2010. Infra & Energy The Infra & Energy business area focuses on the development and sales of model- based software solutions that support customers' core processes. Its key customer industries (products in parentheses) are energy distribution (Tekla Xpower), public administration (Tekla Xcity), as well as civil engineering and water (Tekla Xstreet and Tekla Xpipe). In the energy industry, information system acquisitions are strategic investments for the companies. The economic recession has not had much effect on these investments. Climate change and the endeavor towards sustainable development set new requirements for the industry, e.g., with new energy production methods becoming more common and partial decentralization of production. In addition, consumers' demands for the reliability of distribution and energy consumption-related customer service will increase. New technologies, smart grids and software solutions hold a key role in achieving these objectives. Tekla's market position as a supplier of energy distribution information systems is strong in the Nordic and Baltic countries. In public administration, the tightening economy has decreased income and funds available for investments. Improved and more extensive utilization of information technology is seen to be a key solution for achieving efficiency, self-services and thereby cost-savings. Citizens' services are being extensively migrated into the Web, and the accessibility of the services can also be improved this way. Tekla's sales and market position remained strong in Finland. The net sales of I&E amounted to 10.11 (9.39) million euros for January- September 2010. The business area's net sales increased by almost 8 percent. I&E's operating result was 0.89 (1.13) million euros. I&E's operating result percentage was 8.8% (12.0%). International operations accounted for 33% (39%) of net sales. Net sales for the third quarter amounted to 2.95 (2.76) million euros, and operating result was 0.23 (0.39) million euros, or 7.8% (14.1%) of net sales. In the last quarter net sales and operating result are estimated to  increase. Latvenergo expanded the use of Tekla Xpower by ordering an outage communication solution for customer service support during the third quarter. In June, an agreement was signed with Vattenfall Lämpö Oy on the implementation of the Tekla Xpower district heating solution.  Agreements on district heating systems were also made with a Norwegian and a Swedish customer. An agreement was signed with the City of Kuopio on the implementation of the Tekla Xcity system as the core solution for the city's geographic information management. The adoption of e-service solutions expanded in Finnish cities. New agreements on the further development of Tekla Xcity have been made with key customers. The project will focus on the further development of the Tekla web solutions and geographic information analyses. With regard to e-services, a feedback system (ePalaute) and a service for plot marketing and sales (eTontti) were completed. PERSONNEL Tekla Group personnel averaged 456 (457) for January-September 2010; on average 184 (189) worked outside Finland. In these figures, the number of part-time staff has been converted to correspond to full-time work contribution. At the beginning of the year, Tekla personnel totaled 466 (464) including part-time staff, of whom 192 (189) worked outside Finland, and at the end of September 487 (467), of whom 186 (190) worked outside Finland. During the third quarter, the number of personnel increased by 14 persons. Compared to the beginning of the year, there were 21 more employees at the end of September. Part of the increase is associated with the longer-term development activity mentioned above and part with fixed-term and part-time recruitments. Tekla's long-term personnel trend is a growing one in order to be able to take advantage of the market potential in sight. SHARE AND OWNERSHIP STRUCTURE Shares and share capital The total number of Tekla Corporation shares at the end of September 2010 was 22,586,200, of which the company owned 96,600. The total book countervalue of those was 2,898 euros representing 0.43% of the company's shares. A total of 652,479.02 euros had been used for acquiring the company's own shares, and their market value was 796,950 euros on September 30, 2010. The book countervalue of the share is 0.03 euros. At the end of the period, share capital stood at 677,586 euros. Transfer of treasury shares Based on the authorization issued by the Annual General Meeting of 2010, a total of 73,000 treasury shares were transferred as part of the purchase price when Tekla acquired a 20% share in Construsoft Groep BV at the beginning of May. Construsoft has been a reseller of Tekla products in several countries for 15 years. Share price trends and trading The highest quotation of the share in January-September 2010 was 8.26 (7.88) euros, the lowest 6.29 (3.40) euros. The average quotation was 7.24 (4.82) euros. On the last trading day of September, trading closed at 8.25 (7.00) euros. A total of 4,007,001 (2,292,565) Tekla shares changed hands in January-September 2010 at NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd, amounting to 17.7% (10.2%) of the entire share capital. Nominee registered and foreign owners held 18.34% (24.53%) of all shares at the end of September 2010. SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTY FACTORS No changes have taken place in the short-term risks and uncertainty factors. Possible risks and uncertainty factors associated with Tekla's business are mainly related to the market and competition situation and the general economic situation. Trends in the building industry have improved in several market areas, but the development is incoherent. There is no certainty of the continued favorable development of the global economy. A majority of Tekla's net sales comprises of sales of licenses entitling to use software products. Fluctuation in their demand can be rapid and significant. In the short term and with rapidly decreasing demand, it is challenging to proportion fixed personnel expenses, which account for the majority of Tekla's costs. Tekla is, however, able to react swiftly to growing demand, and profits from additional sales are good. The sales of Tekla software are geographically distributed. In addition, individual customers do not account for a significant share of net sales, and therefore such risks are not essential. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Tekla Corporation's Annual General Meeting was held on April 8, 2010. The AGM adopted Tekla Corporation's financial statements and consolidated financial statements for 2009. It also discharged the CEO and the Board members from liability. The AGM accepted the Board's proposal whereby a dividend of 0.20 euros per share be distributed for 2009, or a total of 4,483,320 euros. The dividend payment date was April 20, 2010. Ari Kohonen, Olli-Pekka Laine (Vice Chair), Heikki Marttinen (Chair), Erkki Pehu-Lehtonen and Reijo Sulonen were re-elected Board members until the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting in 2011. Timo Keinänen was re-elected deputy member of the Board. Juha Kajanen will continue as the Tekla personnel representative on the Board with Kirsi Hakkila as his personal deputy. Ernst & Young Oy, Authorized Public Accountants, was elected as company auditor, with Erkka Talvinko, Authorized Public Accountant, as the auditor in charge. The AGM decided on reducing the share premium account shown on the company's balance sheet of December 31, 2009 by 8,892,678.86 euros by transferring all the funds in the share premium account to the invested non-restricted equity fund. The National Board of Patents and Registration of Finland authorized the reduction of the share premium account in the third quarter. The reduction was booked in September. Any possible repayment of equity requires a decision by a General Meeting. The AGM authorized the Board to increase the company's share capital and acquire or transfer the company's treasury shares. The authorizations are valid until the next Annual General Meeting, however not later than April 30, 2011. The Board of Directors has exercised the authorization to transfer treasury shares at the beginning of May. This has been discussed under "Share and ownership structure" in this report. OUTLOOK FOR 2010 Tekla's future outlook is positive. This notion is also supported by the favorable development of net sales and operating result during January - September. The Board of Directors does not change its net sales and result forecast. Net sales are estimated to increase by approximately 15% on the year before and the operating result percentage to be 15 to 20 percent.

This interim report has been prepared in accordance with the IAS 34 (Interim Financial Reporting) standard. The same accounting and valuation policies and methods of computation have been followed in the interim report as in the annual financial statements for 2009. The amendments and interpretations to published standards as well as new standards, effective January 1, 2010, are presented in detail in the financial statement for 2009. The figures presented in the interim report are unaudited. Use of estimates When preparing the interim report, the Group's management is required to make estimates and assumptions influencing the content of the interim report, and it must exercise its judgment regarding the application of accounting policies. Although these estimates are based on the management's best knowledge, actual results may ultimately differ from the estimates used in the interim report.
