Outotec grows its maintenance services by acquiring Scanalyse

Outotec has signed an agreement to acquire Scanalyse Holdings Pty Ltd, an
Australian-based software technology company with operations in Australia,
Brazil, Chile and the United States. Scanalyse provides services in process
equipment condition and performance monitoring. The acquisition strengthens
Outotec's specialized maintenance services, supporting life cycle solutions and
Outotec's strategy to grow the services business. The acquisition is expected to
be completed in March 2013 and the price is not disclosed.

Scanalyse has a strong focus in research and development, with particular
emphasis on algorithms and software technology. The company has developed
proprietary computer analysis of spatial laser scan data. This analysis is used
for process equipment condition and performance monitoring.  Scanalyse products
include MillMapper for grinding mill monitoring and CrusherMapper for crusher
monitoring. Scanalyse services have quickly gained acceptance in the minerals
processing industry in Australia and other mining countries, enabling the
operators to optimize their asset performance.

Scanalyse has 36 employees, with sales of some few million euros in 2012.
Outotec expects to significantly increase the sales of these products worldwide.

"Scanalyse is an innovative young company specializing in measurement software
development. Its condition and performance monitoring technologies and services
are a valuable addition to Outotec's life cycle services portfolio. By combining
the expertise of Scanalyse and Outotec we can offer new value added services to
our common customer base. There are good opportunities to multiply the business
volume of grinding mill and crusher monitoring services and to further develop
applications for other process equipment, e.g. refractory lined vessels", says
Outotec CEO Pertti Korhonen.
