HANNU AHOLA TO BECOME SOLTEQ PLC'S MANAGING DIRECTOR BEGINNING FROM 1.10.2006

SOLTEQ PLC STOCK EXCHANGE BULLETIN ON September 19th, 2006

Solteq Plc's Managing Director Jorma Hänninen (54) has asked for a resignation from his duties. The company's Board of Directors have decided to appoint the director of retail and wholesale trade profit centre, M.Sc.econ, M.Sc.techn. Hannu Ahola (33) as the company's new managing director beginning from 1.10.2006. For the time being, Ahola is also responsible for the retail and wholesale trade profit centre.

Hannu Ahola has worked in Solteq since 2000. Earlier Ahola has been responsible for the company's marketing and the car sales profit centre. In addition, he has acted in demanding international project tasks outside Solteq.

"I began in the IT sector in the 1970s and have been able to see almost the whole history of this business. Five years in Solteq have been interesting as the company's strategy has changed from a software house to a service partner for our customers. Now I am going to draw breath after 20 years of being a managing director. After that, I will see if my know-how could be utilised in a new way", Jorma Hänninen tells.

The Chairman of the Board Ali U. Saadetdin: "I want to thank Jorma for his 5-year effort for the company. I am satisfied that a new managing director was found within the company. Hannu has excellent preparedness to continue this process of change and direct the company towards new challenges. He knows many of our customers well and the main shareholders and personnel have full confidence in him."
