Nokia Corporation
Stock exchange release
March 22, 2013 at 18.00 (CET+1)

Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced today that Nokia Siemens Networks Finance B.V. (the "Issuer"), a
wholly owned subsidiary of Nokia Siemens Networks B.V., is issuing EUR 450 million Senior Notes
due 2018 at a coupon of 6.75% per annum (the "2018 Notes") and EUR 350 million Senior Notes due
2020 at a coupon of 7.125% per annum (the "2020 Notes" and, together with the 2018 Notes, the
"Notes"), each at an offering price of 100%. The offering was announced on March 18, 2013. The
Notes amount to an aggregate total of EUR 800 million, which is an increase from the originally
planned amount of EUR 600 million. The Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by
Nokia Siemens Networks B.V. and Nokia Siemens Networks Oy. The net proceeds from the offering of
the Notes will be used to prepay certain existing debt of Nokia Siemens Networks and for general
corporate purposes. 

Nokia Siemens Networks is jointly owned by Nokia Corporation and Siemens AG and its financial
results are consolidated by Nokia Corporation. Nokia has not guaranteed any of the Nokia Siemens
Networks borrowings and thus they are non-recourse to Nokia.

The Notes have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S.
Securities Act"), and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under
the U.S. Securities Act or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S.
Securities Act.  The Notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in accordance
with Rule 144A under the U.S. Securities Act and outside the United States in accordance with
Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act.

Important Regulatory Notice

The offer and sale of the Notes will be made pursuant to an exemption under the Prospectus
Directive, as implemented in Member States of the European Economic Area, from the requirement to
produce a prospectus for offers of securities.  This announcement does not constitute an
advertisement for the purposes of the Prospectus Directive.

This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any
Notes, nor will there be any sale of Notes referred to in this announcement, in any jurisdiction,
including the United States, in which such offer, solicitation or sale is not permitted.  The
Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the U.S.
Securities Act or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S.
Securities Act.
