outperform the market average during the second half of the year.

MARKETS AND DIGIA'S BUSINESS                                                    

As a whole, the first half of the year was excellent for Digia. During both the 
first and second quarters the company succeeded extremely well in achieving its 
key target of boosting the organic growth. Moreover, also second quarter's      
operating profit improved markedly year on year.                                

While the market situation in the second quarter remained positive in Digia's   
main business fields, the development of the world economy and its impact on    
Digia's customers' investment propensity continues to create uncertainties.     
Increased personnel costs continued to put strain on the company's profitability
in the second quarter and cost pressures will remain intense in the future.     
Although employee turnover saw a slight decrease in the second quarter, it still
remains at a high level. However, Digia has succeeded well in its recruitments, 
which is the key prerequisite for organic growth.                               

On 24 June 2008, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and NTT DOCOMO announced their  
intent to unite the Symbian OS operating system, S60, UIQ and MOAP(S) to create 
one, open mobile software platform. According to Digia's estimates the announced
project will create new business opportunities to independent smartphone experts
such as Digia. Enabling more equipment manufacturers to develop smartphones on  
the Symbian platform, the project offers Digia an opportunity to provide the    
manufacturers with in-depth expertise.                                          

Digia has implemented its internationalisation strategy in a controlled and     
determined manner. Establishing a Digia unit in China is well underway, with the
first customer projects commencing in the third quarter. The Swedish and Russian
business activities have also reported expected successes.                      

Telecommunications                                                              

During the reporting period, the division's customer relationships developed    
favourably and it enjoyed a high level of customer satisfaction, while making   
efficient use of production capacity. During the second quarter, demand         
temporarily weakened slightly but is still stronger than in the corresponding   
period in the previous year.                                                    

The division has also further strengthened its delivery capacity by continuing  
to pursue its active recruitment policy initiated in the previous financial     
year. Recruitment is mainly focused in countries with lower cost levels.        

In April, Digia opened a development unit in Chengdu, China. China offers very  
favourable and strongly developing conditions for software development          
activities, for instance from educational and infrastructure perspectives.      
Chengdu is an especially rapidly developing area and many of Digia's customers  
and partners have also located their operations in the Chengdu area. The launch 
of operations in Chengdu will incur expenses during 2008 which have been taken  
into account in targets and estimates for the company's financial development.  

The release of the Symbian operating system to Open Source will in long term    
create interesting development opportunities for Digia's business.              


Finance and Services                                                            

Finance and Services increased its business during the second quarter, while its
profitability decreased year on year. This was caused by projects closing and   
delays in the initiation of new major projects replacing them, as well as a     
provision made for a fixed-price project. The division's invoicing rates saw an 
improvement towards the end of the reporting period.                            

Demand in the public sector has remained healthy. In spite of the general       
uncertainty prevailing in the finance sector, demand for the Finance division   
remained relatively good.                                                       


Industry and Trade                                                              

Digia's ERP business launched a development project, targeted for the trade     
sector and in particular for speciality goods industry, and has concluded new   
delivery agreements with wholesale and industry customers. Expanding the ERP    
supply in the public sector has also shown expected progress. In June, Digia    
concluded an agreement with Medbit Oy, a provider for Varsinais-Suomi and       
Satakunta Hospital Districts, on the delivery of an integrated system for       
materials and purchasing.                                                       

For integration solutions, growth of net sales and profitability continued      
positively. For its key customers, the company has expanded its operations which
now involve business process modelling, service-oriented architecture and       
technical integration services. Investments made on sales are anticipated to    
have a positive effect in the creation of new customer relationships.           

New customers won for eBusiness solutions have enabled the attainment of        
expected growth.                                                                

While second quarter market demand in Trade and Industry was satisfactory,      
global economic trends are generating uncertainties for the autumn, which could 
be reflected on the ERP market.                                                 


RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES                                                         

Digia's short-term uncertainties are related to any major changes occurring in  
the company's core markets, the availability and cost of skilled personnel,     
employee turnover and the impact of the unpredictable economic situation to     
Digia customers' investment decisions. Furthermore, the growth in customer      
project size and scope increases risks related to projects and their            
profitability. A more detailed description of Digia's risk management is        
provided in its annual report and on the company website.                       


PROSPECTS FOR 2008 AND COMPANY OBJECTIVES                                       

Digia's main targets for 2008 are to continue strong organic growth while       
maintaining the profitability at a good level. The target takes into account the
holiday season's impact weakening the third quarter's consolidated net sales and
profitability. Digia estimates that its organic growth will continue to         
outperform the market average during the second half of the year.               

The company's management focuses on customers, personnel and further            
internationalisation of operations. The key short-term targets include organic  
growth, expanding the company's service offerings, deepening customer           
relationships and enhancing employee satisfaction. Furthermore, Digia will      
continue to increase its operational efficiency while pursuing a strict cost    
policy.                                                                         

In the long-term Digia seeks primarily to concentrate on strengthening organic  
growth. Digia renounced its revolving credit facility, announced on             
9 November 2006, meant for financing possible acquisitions. By renouncing the   
credit facility, the company will save over EUR 100,000 annually. While the     
company is still able to execute strategically important acquisitions, reaching 
the revenue target of EUR 200 million for 2010 as announced earlier is not      
company's main focus. Instead, the company now focuses on organic growth of the 
businesses by developing current competencies and products, with an aim to      
improve profitability, earnings per share and the balance sheet figures.        

In order to enhance its operations, Digia has initiated an organisational reform
project which will lead to the integration of the company's sales, product and  
service range and competencies. The Group's sales and marketing is headed by    
Antti Lastunen, who took up his duties at Digia on 16 June 2008, leaving SAP    
Finland Ltd. Mr. Lastunen is also appointed as a member of Digia's Management   
Group. The company's product and service range and its development including    
competencies are, similarly, managed in a centralised manner. Digia expects to  
complete the necessary preparations for the reorganisation by the end of        
September. The organisational reform aims to further enhance the use of the     
company's resources, increase the invoicing rate and, thus, improve             
profitability.                                                                  

NET SALES                                                                       

Digia's consolidated net sales for the period 1-6/2008 were EUR 64.8 million, up
by 24.2 per cent year on year (1-6/2007: EUR 52.2 million). This includes

million for the period, up by 2.6 per cent (1-6/2007: EUR 14.8 million).        

During the reporting period, the product business accounted for EUR 9.1 million 
(1-6/2007: EUR 9.1 million) of consolidated net sales, or 14.0 per cent         
(1-6/2007: 17.5 per cent).

by 11.7 per cent (4-6/2007: EUR 7.2 million).                                   

During the second quarter, the product business accounted for EUR 4.9 million   
(4-6/2007: EUR 4.5 million) of consolidated net sales, or 14.9 per cent         
(4-6/2007: 17.3 per cent).

the second quarter (4-6/2007: 9.2 per cent).

Present values are determined on the basis of actual operating profit and       
five-year forecasts by the CGU, with growth varying between three and five per  
cent and the operating margin between 10 and 12 per cent.                       

Cash flows following the forecast period are estimated by extrapolating the cash
flows using a steady net sales growth forecast of three per cent, with operating
profit estimated at 10 per cent of net sales. Discount rates have been          
determined in view of the industry's general risk level, corresponding to an    
annual interest rate of 11 per cent.                                            

Net sales growth is reckoned to constitute the most critical factor in          
calculating the present values of cash flows. The amount of goodwill for        
Telecommunications requires average annual long-term growth of around two per   
cent in its net sales and an operating margin of 10 per cent before amortisation
of intangible assets. The amount of goodwill for Finance and Services requires  
average annual growth of two per cent for business operations and six per cent  
profitability before amortisation of intangible assets. The amount of goodwill  
for Industry and Trade requires average annual long-term growth of two per cent 
in its net sales and an operating margin of nine per cent before amortisation of
intangible assets.                                                              

Based on a reasonable estimate, any change in key variables used in calculations
during the reporting period would not lead to a situation in which the segment's
carrying amount would exceed its recoverable amount. Consequently, in the       
management's view, there is no need to recognise impairment losses.             

The Group's cash flow from business operations for the period was positive by   
EUR 11.1 million (1-6/2007: positive cash flow of EUR 4.3 million), cash flow   
from investments was negative by EUR 4.1 million (1-6/2007: negative EUR 1.2    
million) and cash flow from finance was negative by EUR 2.9 million (1-6/2007:  
negative EUR 1.8 million). Cash flow from investments was negatively influenced 
by the acquisition of Sunrise Resources Ltd, with a negative effect of EUR 2.8  
million. Cash flow from finance was negatively affected by the acquisition of   
own shares, with a negative effect of EUR 0.8 million, and payment of dividends,
with a negative effect of EUR 2.0 million.                                      

Gross capital expenditure during the period totalled EUR 1.3 million (1-6/2007: 
EUR 1.0 million). Acquisitions of tangible fixed assets totalled EUR 1.0 million
(1-6/2007: EUR 0.6 million).                                                    

Return on investment (ROI) for the period stood at 13.1 per cent (12/2007:      
9.4 per cent) and return on equity (ROE) was 13.8 per cent (12/2007:            
8.9 per cent).                                                                  


HUMAN RESOURCES, MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION                                  

On 30 June 2008, the number of Group employees totalled 1,335, up by            
180 individuals or 15.6 per cent, from the staff number on 31 December 2007     
(2007: 1,155). During the reporting period, the number of employees averaged    
1,284, showing an increase of 168 individuals or 15.1 per cent, (2007: 1,116)
