TALENTUM DEVELOPMENT EMPHASIS AND ONE-OFF EXPENSES AFFECT THE FINANCIAL RESULT TALENTUM JANUARY-JUNE 2006 (IFRS) January-June 2006 -

Net sales: EUR 61.2 million (EUR 49.1 million) Operating profit: EUR 3.0 million (EUR 4.6 million) Cash flow from business operations: EUR 6.0 million (EUR 5.0 million) Earnings per share: EUR 0.05 (EUR 0.06) Equity ratio: 34.7% (35.6%)

The consolidated net sales increased 24% in January-June compared with the previous year and totalled EUR 61.2 million (EUR 49.1 million). Talentum Sweden contributed EUR 11.0 million to the growth in net sales and, eliminating the effect of the acquisition (October 6, 2005), net sales went up by 2%. The b-to-b advertising market which is of particular interest to Talentum was subdued in the second quarter, and advertising sales fell short of the target. Outlook for the year as a whole remain unchanged, however. In publishing, the profit from books was more than EUR 0.7 million down from the previous year, but the traditionally strong last quarter is expected to be stronger this year than in previous years and will thus compensate for this. The consolidated operating profit decreased in the first half of the year to EUR 3.0 million (EUR 4.6 million). The consolidated operating profit increased by EUR 0.6 million as a result of the addition of Talentum Sweden but decreased by EUR 0.5 million as a result of the divestment of the Internet consulting business. Talentum development emphasis on new products and one-off expenses show in the financial result as a short-term weakening. The most significant project in the first half of the year was the Focus magazine project. As announced on June 20, 2006, Talentum is withdrawing from the introduction of the magazine in Finland. The costs of the Focus magazine project, totalling around EUR 1 million, have been recognized as expenses in their entirety in the accounts for the first half of the year, which explains the increase in Group items to EUR 2.2 million (EUR 1.1 million). IAS/IFRS REPORTING Talentum transferred to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) on January 1, 2005. This interim report has been drawn up according to the IFRS recognition and valuation principles. In drawing up this interim report, Talentum has applied the same accounting principles as in the financial statements for 2005, which contains a description of those principles. The interim report is unaudited. TALENTUM CEO HARRI ROSCHIER: TALENTUM SWEDEN IS GROWING WELL, PARTICULARLY AFFÄRSVÄRLDEN "Talentum Sweden is showing a growth rate of 20%, and the circulation and readership of Affärsvärlden have grown rapidly, as planned. The steady improvement of TV Content Production since last autumn is also an important positive development. Publishing in Finland did not do as well as last year because of emphasis on new products and slow growth in the advertising market during the second quarter. Also, book sales are stronger in the autumn. Overall, publishing will yield a good result this year too. "Reader surveys in both countries have given excellent results, supporting advertising sales in the autumn. Talouselämä was the uncontested front runner in

the TNS PäättäjäAtlas 2006 media study with 30% increase in readership, and all Talentum publications performed excellently. For the first time in 40 years, the readership of Affärsvärlden exceeded that of Veckans Affärer, and the readership will continue to grow, considering that the circulation of Affärsvärlden is now 47,000, more than double what it was last autumn, and we will attain our target of 50,000 by the end of the year.” INDUSTRY AND TALENTUM OUTLOOK FOR THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2006 AND FOR THE FULL YEAR 2006 - Talentum expects that advertising will grow in the third quarter of 2006 as compared with the third quarter of 2005. - Talentum media increased their market share in the first half of 2006. Magazine advertising revenue increased by 8%, exceeding the market growth rate. The most significant factor in this was the 40% growth in job advertising, clearly exceeding the market growth rate. We expect that in the third quarter of 2006 our market share will remain roughly the same as in the second quarter of 2006. - Talentum expects that sales will show a seasonal fluctuation in the third quarter of 2006, being lower than in the first and second quarters. - Due to increased seasonal fluctuations in Publishing the result particularly in the fourth quarter is expected to be strong. - We continue to expect that the advertising market as a whole will grow in both Finland and Sweden in 2006, but we expect no significant growth in the b-to-b market apart from job advertising, in which considerable growth is expected. - The most important change in Talentum market shares is that Affärsvärlden has, for the first time in 40 years, become the leading financial weekly in Sweden. Affärsvärlden circulation has more than doubled in less than a year and continues to grow rapidly. Accordingly, we expect our market share to continue growing in the second half of 2006. - We expect that Talentum Sweden as a whole will grow by about 20% in 2006, clearly exceeding the market growth rate. Talentum Sweden net sales in JanuaryJune were about EUR 11 million, compared with EUR 18 million for the whole of 2005. - Talentum continues to target increasing its market share in all business areas in 2006. - Talentum expects that the foreseeable market situation will allow the consolidated profit in the second half of 2006 to exceed considerably the first half Focus-project adjusted consolidated profit. CONSOLIDATED NET SALES Consolidated net sales in the second quarter increased by 20% over the previous year and were EUR 30.2 million (EUR 25.2 million). The growth rate in the first half of the year was 24%. Talentum Sweden (acquired October 6, 2005) accounted for EUR 5.7 million of the EUR 5.1 million increase in net sales in the second quarter, and EUR 11.0 million of the EUR 12.0 million increase in net sales in the first half of the year. Eliminating the effect of the acquisition, net sales went up by 2%.

Contributing to the weak performance in the second quarter as compared with the previous year was the fact that there were fewer working days in the second quarter this year: Easter and the holidays either side of it was in April this year, whereas last year it was in March. The biggest contributions to the consolidated net sales were the growth in Publishing (47%) and Direct Marketing (17%). Publishing’s net sales went up by 4%, excluding the effect of the acquisition (October 6, 2005) of Talentum Sweden. In addition, the short-term growth target for TV Content Production was attained (4%). Premedia net sales declined (-7%). Publishing accounted for 61% of the consolidated net sales in the first half of the year. TV Content Production accounted for 19%, Premedia for 17% and Direct Marketing for 7%. Inter-group business activities accounted for 4% of the consolidated net sales. Advertising revenue from Talentum’s magazines was up 8%, the most significant factor being the more than 40% increase in job advertising. The trend in advertising sales is a key variable in Publishing’s financial performance. Magazines and online activities account for about 85% of Publishing’s net sales, of which advertising sales account for 60%, and online advertising contributes about 10% towards the entire advertising net sales. Books and training bring in the remaining 15% of Publishing’s net sales. Talentum has integrated its business operations portfolio with resolute development work and the implementation of synergy. Talentum’s objective is to continue refining the business operations and synergy potential in a way that will support the company’s growth and create economic value added for the owners. CONSOLIDATED RESULTS Talentum’s consolidated operating profit for the first half of the year was EUR 3.0 million (EUR 4.6 million), i.e. 4.9% (9.3%), and the profit was EUR 2.4 million (EUR 3.0 million), i.e. 3.9% (6.1%). The operating profit for the second quarter was EUR 0.7 million (EUR 2.7 million), i.e. 2.3% of net sales (10.7%), and the profit was EUR 0.7 million (EUR 1.7 million), i.e. 2.2% (6.9%). Publishing and Direct Marketing performed well, TV Content Production performed very satisfactorily, and Premedia performed unsatisfactorily. Fluctuations in exchange rates did not have a significant effect on Talentum’s consolidated net sales or the financial performance. Talentum Group’s currency risk comprises risks concerning foreign currency flows and risks involved with translating shareholders’ equity denominated in foreign currencies, i.e. risks concerning the operations of Talentum Sweden. Most of the Group’s direct income and costs are generated in the euro zone. The earnings per share for the first half of the year were EUR 0.05 (EUR 0.06).

AUDITOR As disclosed on March 28, 2006 the AGM elected Authorized Public Accountant firm PricewaterhouseCoopers as auditor. Juha Wahlroos, APA, will start as the new responsible auditor on June 22, 2006. His predecessor Kari Miettinen, APA, will resign PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy. STRUCTURAL CHANGES In the comparison figures for 2005, this interim report presents Satama Interactive’s figures under the heading ‘Discontinued operations’ in the income statement. As announced on September 16, 2005, Talentum sold for EUR 23.2 million its 60% majority holding in Satama Interactive, a company that engages in Internet consulting and was listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange NM List in 2000. Satama Interactive’s net sales in accordance with IFRS came to EUR 23.6 million and the operating profit to EUR 0.6 million in 2004. Talentum recorded a profit on disposal of EUR 10.5 million in the third quarter of 2005. In the second quarter of 2006, Talentum Sweden accounted for EUR 5.7 million of net sales and EUR 0.4 million of operating profit; the corresponding figures were EUR 5.2 million and EUR 0.2 million, respectively, for the first quarter of 2006 and EUR 5.8 million and EUR 0.9 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2005. On October 6, 2005, Talentum purchased the entire stock of the Swedish magazine publishing company Ekonomi & Teknik Förlag AB, and on December 15, 2005 the company was renamed Talentum Sweden. The total purchase price was EUR 17.4 million (SEK 142 million), of which EUR 11.0 million (SEK 102 million) was in cash and EUR 6.4 million (SEK 60 million) in Talentum Oyj shares. Talentum Sweden had net sales of some EUR 18 million in 2005. The net sales of Talentum Sweden are expected to increase considerably in 2006 over the previous year, and a profit is expected, although investment in growth will put a considerable strain on the financial performance. BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND SEASONAL FLUCTUATION IN THE MEDIA MARKET The general economic situation remained fairly good during the first six months of 2006. Contributing to the strong improvement in the market in the first quarter compared with the previous year was the falling of Easter and the holidays either side of it in a different quarter — this year it was in April, whereas last year it was in March. There is a seasonal fluctuation in the media and media services markets, and business is at its briskest during the final quarter of the year. Not all Talentum’s personnel resources are available during the summer holidays, and generally no magazines or books are put out in the summer. These characteristics of the business may cause considerable fluctuation in Talentum’s quarterly net sales and particularly in the profit: the figures are the highest in the last quarter, and correspondingly lower in the third quarter than in the first and second quarters. As a result of the seasonal fluctuation, the main part of net sales and an even greater part of the operating profit in publishing accrue in the latter half of the year. This is the most important reason for most of Talentum’s profit being made in the latter half of the year and the profit trend looking better towards the end of the year. The annual quarterly-based seasonal fluctuation in Publishing’s operating profit is increased from earlier periods by the seasonal fluctuation in Sweden being greater than in Finland because of the one-dimensional structure of the operations and the predominance of magazines.

In order to eliminate the impact of this seasonal fluctuation, Talentum is presenting an income statement of the business areas for the past 12-month period (floating 12 months) and for the 12-month period before that as comparative data, in addition to the reporting periods required by the standard procedure. ORDER BACKLOG The order backlog is not detailed here, since this information is not relevant due to the nature of the business of the Talentum Group. As none of the Talentum business areas have orders extending forward for further than about one month, an order backlog in the conventional sense does not really exist. While customers and the company have signed commercial agreements for periods of several years, the company management does not consider that these agreements constitute an order backlog as such. BUSINESS RISKS Talentum takes controlled risks that are integrally linked with its corporate strategy and objectives. Risks relating to strategy and objectives are controlled and reduced in various ways. 40% of the consolidated net sales are linked with advertising, specifically with the b-to-b sector, which is susceptible to cyclical fluctuation. We try to control this market risk by increasing revenue from circulation sales and content-sales services. All our products and services aim at being market leaders in their own field, which makes it possible to succeed even during a low cycle. The company is not prepared to take risks that endanger continuation of operations or are difficult to control and cause substantial harm to the company’s operations. Risk management does not have a separate organization of its own; its responsibilities follow the division of responsibilities in business operations and the organization. The most important perceived risks are reported to the Board of Directors annually when operations are being planned, and the Board then analyses risks from the shareholder value perspective. In addition, internal auditing is outsourced to Tuokko Tilintarkastus Oy (PKF International), a professional and independent external service provider with sufficient resources. The internal auditing promotes and improves risk management in Talentum’s various operating areas. Talentum keeps an active eye on the market situation in order to be able to prepare for changes in the competition situation in advance. Competition has remained unchanged for a longer period now, but it is possible that the major media companies will increase their input in Talentum’s product areas significantly. The Talentum Group’s currency risks comprise risks concerning foreign currency flows and risks involved with translating shareholders’ equity denominated in foreign currencies i.e. risks concerning the operations of Talentum Sweden. The majority of the Group’s direct income and costs are generated in the euro zone. The basic principle for controlling risks concerning foreign currency flows is by matching income and costs. The basic principle for risks associated with translating shareholders’ equity is to try to hedge against large currency movements. Talentum tries to hedge against finance risks relating to its business operations by ensuring that stable financial conditions are created for

developing. Customer’s payment behaviour is monitored constantly. Attempts are made to invest liquid funds in liquid money market instruments that have good credit standing. Liquid funds do not contain a major interest rate risk because of the short duration of the investments. BUSINESS AREAS Publishing Publishing performed very well during the first half of the year. Net sales in January-June were EUR 37.3 million (EUR 25.4 million), and the operating profit was EUR 3.6 million (EUR 4.0 million), i.e. 9.6% of turnover (15.6%). Publishing grew by 42% in the second quarter, and the operating profit there was 8.1% of turnover (14.9%). Talentum Sweden contributed EUR 5.7 million to the growth in net sales of EUR 5.5 million in the second quarter, and EUR 11.0 million to the growth in net sales of EUR 11.9 million in the first half of the year. Excluding the effect of the acquisition, the net sales increased by 4% in the first half of the year. Talentum Sweden contributed EUR 0.4 million to the operating profit in the second quarter and EUR 0.6 million to the operating profit in the first half of the year. The sector-based organization for Publishing, to which we transferred in August 2005, is aimed at speeding up growth, and the investment has brought some additional costs for Publishing in the early phases. Magazine publishing’s net sales in January-June totalled EUR 31.6 million (EUR 20.0 million) (Internet services accounted for around EUR 2.0 million [EUR 1.8 million]), book publishing’s net sales were EUR 4.5 million (EUR 4.5 million) and the net sales for training activities were EUR 1.1 million (EUR 0.8 million). The circulation revenue of Talentum’s magazines was up 11% and advertising revenue 8%. The most significant factor in the growth in advertising sales was the continued upturn in job advertising that started in the latter half of 2004. TV Content Production The net sales in January-June of Varesvuo Partners Oy, which concentrates on TV content production, increased by 4% (-3%) to EUR 11.9 million (EUR 11.4 million). The operating profit was EUR 0.8 million (EUR 0.2 million). The demand for commercials continued to rise following the upturn at the turn of the year. Net sales increased by 9% to EUR 4.6 million (EUR 4.2 million). TV Content Production continued investing in TV programme production. TV Content Production’s net sales went up by 6% to EUR 5.8 million (EUR 5.5 million). Premedia Premedia’s net sales in January-June decreased by 7% (-3%) to EUR 10.1 million (EUR 10.9 million). The operating profit was EUR 0.1 million (EUR 0.4 million). Internal streamlining measures in the Premedia business area continued. The streamlining costs affect the profit and financial performance will remain modest also in the second half of the year.
