Net sales fell short of year of comparison, profitability weakened

Net sales fell 8.6% short of the corresponding period last year amounting to EUR
56.5 (61.8) million. Net sales for the period of comparison included deliveries
on Ethernet to the Home (EttH) to South Korea for EUR 5.6 million. The lower net
sales than that of the period of comparison was due to decisions taken by some
customers to delay the placing of their orders.

Compared to the same time period in the previous year operating profit fell by
52.7% standing at EUR 2.6 (5.5) million, which is 4.6% (8.9%) of net sales. This
diminished operating profit was caused mainly by the lower net sales. Undiluted
result per share equalled EUR 0.10 (EUR 0.22). Orders received stood at EUR 66.8
(59.3) million, i.e. 12.6% above the period of comparison. Order backlog grew
over the previous year amounting to EUR 29.8 (25.7) million.

Net sales in Q2 amounted to EUR 29.3 (30.3) million while operating profit
equalled EUR 1.7 (2.7) million making 5.9% (8.9%) of net sales. Depreciation on
intangible rights grew by EUR 0.4 million and employee benefits by 0.5 million
over the previous year. Orders received in Q2 stood at EUR 37.4 (23.0) million.

Changes in Group Structure

In the beginning of February Teleste improved its standing as a supplier of IPTV
solutions by acquiring the Finnish Ortikon Interactive Oy. The acquisition will
not have an essential effect on Teleste's financial figures for 2008.

Business Areas

Broadband Cable Networks
Net sales of Broadband Cable Networks fell by 11.6% from the year of comparison
standing at EUR 48.0 (54.3) million. Net sales for the period of comparison
included orders on Ethernet to the Home (EttH) to South Korea for EUR 5.6
million. Operating profit stood at EUR 2.7 (5.9) million making 5.7% (10.8%) of
the net sales. This weakened operating profit was primarily due to diminished
net sales. Orders received by BCN amounted to EUR 58.9 (52.4) million. Order
backlog grew over the previous year amounting to EUR 28.6 (24.4) million. Order
backlog includes the headend video centre of EUR 12 million bound for India.
Ortikon Interactive Oy acquired in February 2008 strengthens the provision of
IPTV solutions for the business area.

Q2 net sales for the business totalled EUR 25.0 (26.3) million. Operating profit
stood at EUR 1.8 (2.6) million making 7.3% (9.8%) of the net sales. Orders
received in Q2 stood at EUR 32.9 (19.7) million. In June Broadband Cable
Networks received a significant order from India involving an IP-based digital
television platform worth EUR 12 million. In June a two-year frame agreement was
signed with the Finnish DNA for deliveries on cable TV equipment and services
amounting to EUR 2.6 million.

Video Networks
Net sales of Video Networks amounted to EUR 8.5 (7.5) million. Operating profit
was EUR -0.1 (-0.4) million in the red. Orders received by Video Networks
increased by 13.7% over the period of comparison to EUR 7.9 (6.9) million. Order
backlog totalled EUR 1.2 (1.3) million.

Q2 net sales for the business totalled EUR 4.3 (4.1) million. Operating profit
was EUR -0.1 million in the red (0.1 million in the black). Orders received in
Q2 stood at 4.5 (3.3) million. In June VN entered a frame agreement of EUR 2.0
million with the French National Railway Authority (SNCF) for delivery of a
video surveillance solution covering 50 railway stations. In June the SNFC
placed an order of EUR 1.0 million for a video surveillance solution for the
Paris area. The deliveries provide a continuation for the video surveillance
solution delivered in 2006 and 2007 encompassing 120 railway stations.

Significant Short-Term Risks and Uncertainty Factors for the Business Areas

Increased insecurity concerning the world economy and rise in the interest rates
may undermine the demand for Teleste products. The significant strengthening of
the euro against the US dollar continues to undermine Teleste's competitiveness.

Ownership and operative rearrangements among our clientele may slow down the
folding out of some investments in the business of Broadband Cable Networks.
Strengthening of order backlog for Video Networks is dependent on timing of
public sector decisions. Introduction to the market of new competing
technologies is a characteristic risk factor for both of our business areas.

Personnel

The Group employed 754 people at the end of June (2007: 2007, 2006: 721, 2006:
662), out of which 560 (530, 490) were stationed in Finland. The number of
personnel includes 69 (70, 55) summer substitutes. At the end of June the number
of temporary labour was 38 (75, 37). The stated figure for the Group does not
include temporary employees.

R&D and Investments

The R&D expenditure for the review period totalled EUR 7.1 (6.6) million making
12.6% (10.7%) of net sales. Activated R&D expenses stood at EUR 1.3 (1.2)
million. The increased R&D expenses compared to the previous year relate to the
development efforts of the new IP headend and the software development for the
video surveillance systems. Depreciation on previous R&D investments amounted to
EUR 0.9 (0.6) million.

At the end of June Teleste's R&D personnel included 164 (148, 128) persons. The
growth in the R&D personnel was primarily caused by the acquisition of Ortikon.

In June 2008 Tekes - the National Technology Agency of Finland - decided to
continue its contribution to the development of broadband integrated services
digital networks. In total terms the development support stands at EUR 2.8
million and the decision covers the period 1 July 2008 to 31 December 2009.

Investments for the Group totalled EUR 2.1 (9.9) million. Investments in the
period under review involved mainly product development (EUR 1.3 million) and
additional contract prices (EUR 0.3 million) related to previous acquisitions.
Acquisition of Ortikon Interactive Oy is included in the investments.
Investments made in the given period included EUR 6.1 million related to the
acquisition of DINH Telecom and EUR 1.4 million for the SMT line.

Finance

Operating cash flow for the period under review stood at EUR 5.6 (2.7) million.
In the period under review short-term receivables grew by EUR 2.0 million while
the inventories were reduced by EUR 3.4 million. Cash assets at the end of the
review period stood at EUR 8.3 (10.7) million. At the end of June the Group's
interest-bearing debt amounted to EUR 11.5 (20.6) million. In the period under
review, interest-bearing debt increased by EUR 2.0 million. At the end of June,
in addition to liquid funds the company's unused stand-by credits amounted to
EUR 21.0 (12.0) million. The current stand-by credits will be due in November
2008. The company has negotiated total credit facilities of EUR 40 million with
two financiers. These new facilities will stay effective for five years. The
Group's gearing was 7.1% (25.0%) and the equity ratio was 57.3% (46.1%).

Teleste hedges main exchange rate risks of forecasted currency flows for six
months ahead.

Shares and Shareholders

In the past year the trading price of the share fluctuated between EUR 4.73
(9.99) and EUR 7.49 (12.34). The closing price at the end of June was EUR 5.00
(10.79). According to the Finnish Central Security Depository, the number of
shareholders at the end of the period was 5,268 (5,277) while foreign ownership
accounted for 16.4% (21.7%). The value of shares traded on OMX Nordic Exchange
was EUR 31.7 (43.3) million while the number thereof equalled 5.0 (3.8) million.

At the end of June the number of own shares in Teleste's possession was 384,321
equalling 2.17% of the entire capital stock. In the period under review, 7,761
own shares have been conveyed to the Management Team share bonus scheme. This
equals 0.04% of the total number of shares.

In May 2008 the Board of the company decided to launch a repurchase program of
own shares based on authorisation granted by the AGM. Based on this decision by
the Board the maximum number of own shares repurchased will be 500,000. In the
period under review 39,600 own shares were procured for the average price of EUR
5.03 per share.

The 2004B stock options distributed to the Teleste key personnel were listed on
OMX Nordic Exchange on 1 April 2008.

Decisions by the Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 1 April 2008 confirmed the financial
statements for 2007 and discharged the Board and the CEO from liability for the
financial period. The AGM confirmed the Board's proposed dividend of EUR 0.24
per share. The dividend was paid out on 15 April 2008.

The AGM decided that the Board of Directors shall consist of six members. Mr.
Tapio Hintikka was re-elected as Chairman of the Board whilst Mr. Tero
Laaksonen, Mr. Pertti Raatikainen, Mr. Timo Toivila and Mr. Pekka Vennamo
continue as members on the Board of Directors. Mr. Kai Telanne was elected new
member of the Board.

Authorised Public Accountants KPMG Oy Ab continue as the auditor until the next
AGM.

The AGM authorised the Board to acquire the maximum of 1,400,000 of the
company's own shares and to convey the maximum of 1,744,721 company's own
shares. The AGM also authorised the company to issue 5,000,000 new shares. The
maximum number of shares that may be subscribed with the special rights granted
by the Company is 2,000,000 shares.

These authorisations will be valid until the AGM due to be held in 2009.

Outlook

The growing and increasingly versatile provision of services to the operator
clientele of the Broadband Cable Networks business area requires continued
investments in greater transfer capacity and increased quality of the networks.
We believe that there will be growing demand for the products and services
offered by the business area in the medium term. In order to make full benefit
of the future development potential we will continue our investment on HFC,
video processing and the next generation broadband technologies as well as the
development of the service business and channels. Investments by the operators
may be delayed temporarily with the weakening of the purchasing power of
households and the rise in interest rates. The price competition will continue
strong particularly as a consequence of the strong euro.

The market situation for the system deliveries involving IP technology of the
Video Networks business area and the related services is promising. The current
prospects list involving large-scale traffic control and safety surveillance
solutions supports the growth possibilities for the whole year. Our product
development focuses on video management systems and technical integration.
Cost-efficiency will be secured by standardised system deliveries.

Business predictability has become more difficult due to the continued
uncertainty in the world economy. Nevertheless, we believe the market situation
for our lines of business to remain active and that Teleste will continue on its
path of profitable growth in the medium term perspective.

As to the entire year, net sales will fall slightly short of last year's level
due to partial postponement in the placing of customers' orders. Operating
profit will fall short of last year's owing to the decreased net sales and
Teleste's intensive focusing on the product development and the service business
to ensure profitable growth in the future. Orders received will increase over
the previous year.

Teleste's interim report for the January to September period will be published
on 21 October 2008.
