Kemira's President and CEO Harri Kerminen:

The recovery in demand which started at the end of the first quarter also
continued in the second quarter. The 12% growth in revenue compared to the
second quarter last year is a reflection of increased deliveries to our customer
industries. The revenues of Oil & Mining and Paper segments rose over 10 %. The
revenue of the Municipal & Industrial segment developed positively as well,
especially regarding deliveries to Industrial customers.

The operating profit excl. non-recurring items in continuing operations improved
in the second quarter by 38%. In addition to higher sales volumes, the result
was boosted by lower costs. Operating profit as a share of revenue rose to 7.4%
from 6.0% the previous year. Profit before tax was markedly better than last
year.

We will continue to develop the company according to our strategy, focusing on
water chemistry. As a part of this work, we announced the divestments of two
non-water related Paper segment units. The globally growing water business
offers Kemira opportunities to expand the utilisation of our current
competencies in the water treatment sector. Furthermore, the cooperation with
customers and research centers provides a strong basis for the profitable growth
of Kemira.

The share of associates' results was EUR 3.8 million (-5.0).
The January-June profit before tax was EUR 69.0 million (28.8). Net profit for
the period from continuing operations totalled EUR 55.0 million (22.2). Net
profit was EUR 586.0 million (35.6). This includes a non-recurring income of EUR
529.2 million from the separation of Tikkurila, consisting of the difference
between the market price of Tikkurila on March 26, 2010 and the shareholder's
equity of Tikkurila on March 25, 2010 less the transfer tax related to
Tikkurila's listing as well as listing costs.

Financial position and cash flow


Cash flow from operating activities in January-June 2010 amounted to EUR 34.7
million (87.7). Cash flow includes Tikkurila until March 25, 2010. Compared to
last year, cash flow was adversely affected by the separation of Tikkurila in
the first quarter, as well as the increase of net working capital connected to
the growth of revenue. Cash flow after investments amounted to EUR 134.6 million
(49.5). Cash flow from investing activities includes the loan repayment from
Tikkurila as well a cash and cash equivalents transferred to Tikkurila, and the
effect of the transfer tax related to Tikkurila's listing, in total EUR 119.3.
The cash flow effect of expansion, improvement and maintenance investments was
EUR -31.2 million (-36.1). No acquisitions were carried out during the period.
Acquisitions amounted to EUR 3.7 million last year relating to Tikkurila.

At the end of the period the Group's net debt stood at EUR 611.0 million
(December 31, 2009: EUR 675.6 million). The decrease in net debt was mainly due
to the separation of Tikkurila (effect approximately EUR 160 million). Currency
exchange rate fluctuations increased net debt by approximately EUR 54 million
and in addition, during the second quarter Kemira Oyj paid out EUR 41 million in
dividend.

At the end of the period, interest-bearing liabilities stood at EUR 723.6
million (December 31, 2009: 950.2). Fixed-rate loans accounted for 76% of total
interest-bearing loans (December 31, 2009: 70%). The average interest rate on
the Group's interest-bearing liabilities was 4.4% (5.7%). At the end of June,
the duration of the Group's interest-bearing loan portfolio was 18 months
(December 31, 2009: 19 months).

The unused amount of the EUR 500 million revolving credit facility that falls
due in 2012 was EUR 437 million at the end of the period. The total limit of the
revolving credit facility has been reduced from EUR 750 million to EUR 500
million. Short-term liabilities maturing in the next 12 months amounted to EUR
126.5 million, with commercial papers issued on the Finnish markets representing
EUR 4.9 million and repayments of long-term loans representing EUR 110.3
million. Cash and cash equivalents totalled EUR 112.6 million on June 30, 2010.
Based on its current structure, it is expected that the Group will not encounter
any significant refinancing needs in 2010, since the current loan arrangements
cover its financing needs. The terms of the revolving credit facility and other
major bilateral loan arrangements require that the Group's equity ratio must be
more than 25%.

At the end of the period, the equity ratio stood at 50% (December
31, 2009: 45%), while gearing was 48% (December 31, 2009: 53%). Kemira's gearing
target is 40-80%. Shareholders' equity decreased by approximately EUR 70 million
due to the separation of Tikkurila. The net impact of currencies on
shareholders' equity was approximately EUR 45 million.

In January-June the Group's net financial expenses were EUR 17.7 million (19.6).
Net financial expenses decreased from the corresponding period in 2009, mainly
due to lower debt and lower market rate levels; at the same time they increased
due to the exchange rate effects.

Capital expenditure

Gross capital expenditure in January-June, excluding acquisitions, amounted to
EUR 34.7 million (36.1). Gross capital expenditure of continuing operations,
excluding acquisitions, totalled EUR 32.5 million (27.9). Expansion investments
represented around 24% of gross capital investments, improvement investments
around 40%, and maintenance investments around 36%. The depreciation of
continuing operations amounted to EUR 48.2 million (50.6). Cash flow from the
sale of assets in continuing operations was EUR 12.4 million (1.5) in
January-June.

Research and Development

In continuing operations, research and development expenditure in January-June
 was EUR 20.4 million (19.9) i.e. 2.1% (2.1%) of all operating expenses.

In March Kemira and VTT announced the establishing of a large water research
center in Finland. The total cost of the research, which will be performed at
the centre, is estimated at EUR 120 million, including external funding. The
investments are allocated over a period of 4 years, resulting in further
investment activities in projects for piloting and proof of concept purposes.
The centre will employ approximately 200 persons annually.

At the beginning of the year, about one third of the projects forming the water
research program have been kicked off and new strategic partners (customers and
other technology suppliers) are joining the program. Kemira has tightened
cooperation with the University of Alberta (Canada). University of Alberta has
long researched effective extraction of oil from oil sands. The focus of the
cooperation will be on water treatment in particular.

In June, Kemira and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) announced joint
a R&D cooperation, with the aim to enhance used water treatment and
purification. The goal of the 2-year project is to design a more efficient water
treatment process with lower energy consumption and waste volume. The
cooperation is part of a membrane research effort.

Human Resources

The number of Kemira Group employees at the end of the period was 5,177 (June
30, 2009: 9,139). The number of personnel declined mostly due to the separation
of Tikkurila.

The Paper segment's revenue in April-June 2010 rose by 12% to EUR 247.4 million
(221.6). Strong pulp demand has kept the sales of pulp chemicals at a good
level. Demand for packaging board has picked up in particular in Asia and
Eastern Europe since the second half of last year, increasing chemical sales
into these regions. The demand for paper used in magazines and newspapers and
the number of printed advertising material has increased the demand for the
products. In some products, sales prices declined as a result of a drop in raw
material prices in 2009. The exchange rate effects had a EUR 16 million positive
impact on revenue.

Operating profit excluding non-recurring items for April-June was EUR 18.3
million (8.0). The operating profit margin rose to 7.4% from 3.6 % last year.
Costs decreased by some EUR 12 million in April-June compared to the
corresponding period in 2009.

In January-June the Paper segment's revenue increased by 8% to EUR 481.4 million
(446.6). The currency exchange effect had a positive impact on revenue of
approximately EUR 19 million. Operating profit excluding non-recurring items was
EUR 33.5 million (15.5). Operating profit as a share of revenue was 7.0% (3.5%).
Costs in January-June were about EUR 30 million lower than in January-June
2009. Exchange rates had no significant effect on the result.

During this period Kemira announced the divestments of two non-water related
Paper segment units.

Kemira sold the sulphuric acid plant in Kokkola to Boliden Kokkola Oy. The
business operations were transferred to Boliden Kokkola Oy on May 1, 2010.
Kemira continues chemical terminal operations in Kokkola including services to
Boliden. The transaction has no significant impact on Kemira's financial result.

Kemira and German Catec GmbH financially supported by Fengler Beteiligungs GmbH
have signed a contract, according to which Kemira sells its global Fluorescent
Whitening Agents to Catec. Fluorescent whitening agents improve the whiteness
and brightness of paper. The deal covers a production plant in Leverkusen, the
global sales network and the associated support functions. The business employs
about a 100 people, most of them in Germany. They will be transferred to Catec
at the end of the third quarter, when the transaction is to be closed. The
transaction has no significant impact on Kemira's financial result.

The Municipal & Industrial segment's revenue in April-June totalled EUR 163.7
million.  A year earlier it was EUR 160.7 million. The delivery volumes were
higher than in April-June 2009, but the average sales prices in some products
decreased as a result of a drop in raw material prices. The exchange rate
effects had a EUR 11 million positive impact on revenue. Healthy demand
continued in the municipal water treatment business, and delivery volumes were
slightly higher than a year ago. Also in the industrial water treatment business
the volumes increased, especially in Europe and Asia.

Operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR 15.6 million (18.2). The
decrease in some average sales prices due to the drop in raw material prices had
a negative impact on the result. Costs decreased in April-June by some EUR 7
million compared to the corresponding period in 2009. Exchange rates had no
significant effect on the result.

The segment's revenue in January-June was EUR 312.1 million (311.4). The average
prices decreased in some products as a result of a drop in raw material prices
seen in 2009. The sales volumes grew by about 5%. The exchange rate effect
increased the revenue by about EUR 14 million. Operating profit excluding
non-recurring items was EUR 32.3 million (28.6) and the operating profit margin
was 10.3% (9.2%). Costs in January-June were about EUR 21 million lower than in
January-June 2009. Exchange rates had no significant effect on the result.

The Oil & Mining segment's revenue in April-June rose by 41% to EUR 78.1 million
(55.2). Overall sales volumes rose significantly from the corresponding period
in 2009. Demand has been strong, in particular in the oil and gas markets in
North America. Demand of chemicals for the mining industry recovered already
during the first quarter 2010.

Operating profit excluding non-recurring items for April-June was EUR 6.9
million (3.2). The operating profit margin rose to 8.8% from 5.8% last year. In
addition to the increase in sales volumes, the profit was improved by the
slightly higher average sales prices of products. Costs increased by some EUR 5
million compared to the corresponding period in 2009.

The segment's revenue in January-June 2010 rose by 32% to EUR 144.7 million
(109.6). The average sales prices of products maintained the same level as a
year before. The sales volumes grew by about 25%. The currency exchange effect
increased revenue by about EUR 2 million. Operating profit excluding
non-recurring items was EUR 13.3 million (5.2). Operating profit as a share of
revenue reached 9.2% (4.7%). Costs were at the same level in January-June as
they were in the corresponding period in 2009. Exchange rates had no significant
effect on the result.

Other

The Other segment consists of specialty chemicals such as organic salts and
acids and the Group expenses not charged to the segments (some research and
development costs and the costs of the CEO Office). The demand of specialty
chemicals was at a good level in the Other segment. Products are delivered for
instance to the food industry, feed industry and pharmaceutical industry, as
well as for airport runway de-icing.

Separation of Tikkurila

Trading with Tikkurila Oyj's share began on NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Oy on March
26, 2010 when Tikkurila was separated from Kemira Oyj.

Other events during the review period

Kemira sold the sulphuric acid plant in Kokkola to Boliden Kokkola Oy. The
business operations were transferred to Boliden Kokkola Oy on May 1, 2010.
Kemira continues chemical terminal operations in Kokkola including services to
Boliden. The transaction has no significant impact on Kemira's financial result.

Kemira Oyj and a Swedish company Coor Service Management AB have May 21, 2010
signed a contract, according to which Kemira sold its IPOS service company to
Coor. IPOS (Industry Park of Sweden AB) provides its customers maintenance,
technical and other services in the Industry Park of Helsingborg. The IPOS legal
entity and a staff of about 130 persons were transferred to Coor per July
1, 2010. The transaction had no significant impact on Kemira's financial result.

June 23, 2010, Kemira and German Catec GmbH financially supported by Fengler
Beteiligungs GmbH signed a contract, according to which Kemira sells its global
Fluorescent Whitening Agents to Catec. The deal covers a production plant in
Leverkusen, the global sales network and the associated support functions. The
business employs about a 100 people, most of them in Germany. They will be
transferred to Catec at the end of the third quarter, when the transaction is to
be completed. The transaction has no significant impact on Kemira's financial
result.

On June 29, 2010, Kemira announced that it will start joint a R&D cooperation
with Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), with the aim to enhance used
water treatment and purification. The goal of the 2-year project is to design a
more efficient water treatment process which produces more clean water with
lower energy consumption and waste volume.

Randy Owens, President, Kemira Oil & Mining, will alongside his current role be
the region head of North America. Hannu Melarti, SVP, Region North America has
left the company to pursue career options outside Kemira as of July 1, 2010.

Kemira has received the European Commission's decision regarding anticompetitive
activities of animal feed phosphates producers in Europe on July 20, 2010. The
European Commission decided that Kemira should not pay any fine, since it was
the first company to report these activities to the Commission. Kemira has
cooperated with the European Commission during the investigation which began at
the end of 2003. Kemira divested the animal feed phosphates business in 2004.
Kemira informed the public about the Commission's investigations in 2004, in the
prospectus of Kemira GrowHow. The decision of the European Commission will not
have any financial impact on Kemira.

Short-term risks and uncertainties

Kemira's main short-term risks and uncertainties are connected to raw material
availability and prices.

Substantial fluctuations in the world market prices of electricity and oil are
reflected in Kemira's financial results, via raw material prices and logistics
costs.

Introduction of REACH legislation may decrease the available raw material
options and thus increase our raw material costs. REACH registration of Kemira's
own products may also be more expensive than estimated, in particular if we are
not able to share the costs with other companies. Acrylamide, boric acid,
borates and sodium dichromate have been added to the list of candidates for
authorization under REACH. If acrylamide, which Kemira uses as a raw material
for polymers, will be added to the list of substances subject to authorization
under REACH, this would make its use more difficult. Boric acid, borates and
sodium dichromate are mainly used in the production at Kemira Chemicals Oy.

Changes in the exchange rates of key currencies can affect Kemira's financials.

A detailed account of Kemira's risk management principles and organization is
available on the company website at www.kemira.com. An account of financial
risks is available in the Notes to the Financial Statements 2009. Environmental
and hazard risks are discussed in Kemira's environmental report.

Outlook


Kemira's goal is to be a leading water chemistry company. Implementation of
Kemira's water strategy has progressed well and the company has improved its
profitability significantly and strengthened the balance sheet with several
measures. Kemira will continue to focus on improving profitability and
reinforcing positive cash flow, and the company will also increase its actions
to boost growth.

The basis for growth is the expanding water chemicals markets and Kemira's
strong know-how in water quality and quantity management. Increasing water
shortage, tightening legislation and customers' needs to increase operational
efficiency create opportunities for Kemira to develop new water applications for
both new and current customers. Investment in research and development is a
central part of Kemira's strategy. The focus of Kemira's R&D activities is on
the development and commercialization of new innovative technologies both
globally and locally.

During the current year, Kemira expects the demand to develop favorably as our
customers' demand is getting stronger. Operating profit from continuing
operations, excluding non-recurring items, is expected to grow notably from last
year (2009: EUR 124.9 million).

Kemira had in its possession 3,600,225 of its treasury shares on June 30, 2010.
The average share price of treasury shares was EUR 6.73 and they represented
2.3% of the share capital and the aggregate number of votes conferred by all
shares. The aggregate par value of the treasury shares is EUR 5.1 million.

The capital paid-in in excess of par value is a reserve accumulating through
subscriptions entitled by the Management stock option program 2001 and is based
on the Finnish Companies Act (734/1978), which does no longer change. According
to IFRS, the Fair Value reserve is a reserve accumulating based on
available-for-sale financial assets (shares) measured at fair value and hedge
accounting. Other reserves are required by local legislation. The unrestricted
equity reserve includes other equity type investments and the subscription price
of shares to the extent that it will not, based on a specific decision, be
recognized in share capital.

Litigation


On August 19, 2009, Kemira Oyj received a summons stating that Cartel Damage
Claims Hydrogen Peroxide SA (CDC) had filed an action against six hydrogen
peroxide manufacturers, including Kemira, for violations of competition law
applicable to the hydrogen peroxide business. In its claim, Cartel Damage Claims
Hydrogen Peroxide SA seeks an order from the Regional Court of Dortmund in
Germany to obtain an unabridged and full copy of the decision of the European
Commission, dated May 3, 2006, and demands that the defendants, including
Kemira, are jointly and severally ordered to pay damages together with accrued
interest on the basis of such decision.

Cartel Damage Claims Hydrogen Peroxide SA states that it will specify the amount
of the damages at a later stage after the full copy of the decision of the
European Commission has been obtained by it. In order to provide initial
guidance as to the amount of such damages, Cartel Damage Claims Hydrogen
Peroxide SA presents in its claim a preliminary calculation of the alleged
overcharge having been paid to the defendants as a result of the violation of
the applicable competition rules by the parties which have assigned and sold
their claim to Cartel Damage Claims Hydrogen Peroxide SA. Such alleged
overcharge, together with accrued interest until December 31, 2008, is stated to
be approximately EUR 641.3 million. The process is currently pending in the
Regional Court of Dortmund, Germany.

Kemira defends against the claim of Cartel Damage Claims Hydrogen Peroxide SA.
However, Kemira is currently not in a position to make any estimate regarding
the duration or the likely outcome of the process. No assurance can be given as
to the outcome of the process, and an unfavorable judgment against Kemira could
have a material adverse effect on Kemira's business, financial condition or
results of operations. Due to its extensive international operations the Group,
in addition to the CDC claim, is involved in a number of other legal proceedings
incidental to these operations and it does not expect the outcome of these other
currently pending legal proceedings  to have materially adverse effect upon its
consolidated results or financial position.

The fair values of the instruments which are publicly traded are based on market
valuation on the date of reporting. Other instruments have been valuated based
on net present values of future cash flows. Valuation models have been used to
estimate the fair values of options.

Nominal values of the financial instruments do not necessarily correspond to the
actual cash flows between the counterparties and do not therefore give a fair
view of the risk position of the Group.
