Stonesoft Corporation has on 6 June 2013 received the following notification:

NOTIFICATION OF A CHANGE IN SHAREHOLDING PURSUANT TO CHAPTER 9, SECTION 5 OF THE FINNISH SECURITIES MARKET ACT

Stonesoft Corporation has on 6 June 2013 received the following notification in accordance with the Securities Markets Act from Intel Corporation (Delaware Secretary of State File No. 2189074) and its wholly-owned indirect subsidiary McAfee Suomi Funding LLC (Delaware Secretary of State File No. 5328874):

If the tender offer for all the shares and option rights in Stonesoft Corporation is completed, the ownership of McAfee Suomi Funding LLC in Stonesoft Corporation will, based on the shares and option rights tendered into the tender offer upon the completion of the settlement trades by 5 June 2013 exceed 50% of all the shares and voting rights in Stonesoft, based on the tender offer published on 6 May 2013 for the shares and option rights as well as the irrevocable undertakings of the three largest shareholders of Stonesoft.

According to the notification the ownership of McAfee Suomi Funding LLC (including the irrevocable undertakings given by the three largest shareholders of Stonesoft Corporation to accept the tender offer) would, after the completion of the offer be 34,037,213 (52.16%) shares and votes, assuming that all option rights offered in the tender offer would be used to subscribe shares.

Intel Corporation has on 6 May 2013 issued a public tender offer made by its subsidiary McAfee Suomi Funding LLC, for all issued and outstanding shares and option rights in Stonesoft Corporation. The offer period for the tender offer commenced on May 21 and will expire on 19 June unless the acceptance period is extended in accordance with the terms and conditions of the tender offer.

Shareholders representing approximately 34.7 percent of the shares have irrevocably and unconditionally undertaken to accept the tender offer.

The number of Stonesoft Corporation's shares is currently 64,090,484. The above mentioned ownership percentage has been calculated based on the assumption that all option rights offered in the tender offer (but not other  option rights issued by the company) would be used to subscribe shares, in which case the total number of Stonesoft Corporation's shares would be 65,256,232 shares.
