The Board of Directors proposes, based on the
recommendation of the Audit
Committee, that the audit fee be paid according to
the auditors' invoice.

9.
Proposal by the Board of Directors for the amendment to Articles 3 and 12
of
the Articles of Association
The Board of Directors proposes that the
Articles 3 and 12 of the Articles of
Association be amended as follows:

-
Article 3 be amended so that the maximum share capital of the company be
EUR
500,000,000.
- Article 12 be amended so that the notice to a general
meeting be submitted to
the shareholders by means of an advertisement
published in a nationwide newspaper
appearing in Helsinki.

10. Proposal by
the Board of Directors for a reduction of the share capital
The Board of
Directors proposes that the company's share capital be reduced by
EUR
5,229,900 from the current EUR 156,780,033.30 to EUR 151,550,133.30
through
cancellation without payment of 3,874,000 Citycon shares held by the
company. The
reduction of the share capital will be executed by transferring
the total nominal
value of the shares to be cancelled to share premium fund.
The reduction has no
effect on the restricted shareholders' equity.

11.
Proposal by the Board of Directors for a share issue authorisation
The Board
of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorise the
Board to
decide, at the price and on the terms determined by the Board, to issue
one or
several convertible bonds, issue stock options and increase the
company's
share capital through one or several rights issues in such a way
that the total
increases of the company's share capital based on these issues
do not exceed a
maximum of EUR 31,356,004.50 and that a maximum of 23,226,670
new shares with a
nominal value of EUR 1.35 may be offered.

In connection
with the rights issue, convertible bond issue and stock option
issue, the
company may deviate from the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription
right,
provided that the company has a weighty financial reason for the
deviation,
such as execution of real estate or share purchase transactions or
financing
any other acquisition important for the company's business,
strengthening the
capital structure of the company or expanding the company's
ownership basis.
The Board may not deviate from the shareholders' pre-emptive
subscription
right in favour of anyone belonging to the inner circle of the
company.

If
the share capital is increased through a rights issue, the Board is
authorised
to decide that shares may be subscribed against subscription in
kind or otherwise
on certain terms and conditions or by exercising the right
of set-off.

It is proposed that the authorisation be effective until 5 April
2006.

12. Proposal by the Board of Directors to sell the shares in the joint
book-entry
account
The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General
Meeting resolve to sell
the company's shares held in the joint book-entry
account for the benefit of
their owners in accordance with Chapter 3a, Article
3a of the Finnish Companies
Act as well as to authorise the Board to take any
and all actions provided by the
law to execute the sale. The company's shares
were entered into the book-entry
securities system in 1994. The number of
shares in the joint book-entry account
per 2 March 2005 was 7,537
corresponding to 0.006 per cent of the total number of
the shares in the
company.
