comparative figures given in the body text of this report are figures for the

Elcoteq's President and CEO Jouni Hartikainen:

"The second quarter of 2010 clearly proved that we have been able to restore
customer confidence through the actions executed earlier this year to strengthen
the balance sheet. Furthermore, the new product life cycle services strategy has
been well received by our customers. Revenues increased by 51% from the previous
quarter due to increased volumes from existing customers and the new customer
programs started this year. The operating result continued to improve.

During the past six months we have signed over ten new customer accounts with
both large and smaller companies for a large variety of different types of
services that cover the whole life cycle of products. We also have successfully
started manufacturing LED lighting products for Philips in China and will expand
their production to other Elcoteq locations in the second half of 2010.

We also successfully concluded the divestment of the St. Petersburg production
facility and managed to reduce the net debt by 26% from the first quarter of
2010.

A major disappointment in early July 2010 was Sharp's decision to put the KIN
smartphone deliveries on hold after a rapid and successful ramp-up. We are
presently in discussions with the customer on how to continue the cooperation.

During the latter half of the year, our focus will be on further improving our
profitability and continuing to strengthen the balance sheet."

April - June

Elcoteq recorded net sales of 332.3 million euros between April and June (436.0
million euros in April-June 2009). Operating loss totaled -6.9 million euros
(-11.5), excluding restructuring costs it was -3.0 million euros (-11.0). Net
sales have decreased significantly from last year, but clearly improved from the
first quarter of 2010, mainly due to high demand for Flat TVs and set-top
products, increased deliveries of communications network products as well as
ramp-up of new customer programs, including the KIN smartphone. Operating result
continued to improve due to increased sales and the consistent cost savings
actions carried out during the review period.

The Group's net financial income was 5.2 million euros (net financial expenses
11.9 million euros in April-June 2009) due to foreign exchange gains resulting
from the favorable EUR/USD exchange rate development during the review period.
Loss before taxes was -1.7 million euros (-23.4) and net loss totaled -5.8
million euros (-21.8). Earnings per share (EPS) were -0.18 euros (-0.67).

The Group's gross capital expenditures on fixed assets between April and June
were 2.6 million euros (1.5), or 0.8% of net sales (0.4%). Depreciation amounted
to 8.7 million euros (16.0). During the review period, investments were
earmarked mainly for the test equipment of new customer programs.

Cash flow after investing activities was 5.3 million euros (72.2). The Group had
3.3 million euros sold accounts receivable without recourse at the end of June
2010 (18.7 million euros at the end of June 2009).  Positive cash flow includes
the proceeds from the St. Petersburg facility divestment.

At the end of June 2010, Elcoteq had cash totaling 72.5 million euros (154.8).
The company reduced the 100 million euros syndicated committed credit facility
signed in April 2010 by 16.5 million euros to 83.5 million euros. The credit
facility was fully utilized.

At the end of June, the Group's interest-bearing net debt amounted to 76.3
million euros (215.9). The net debt decreased 26.4% from the first quarter. The
solvency ratio was 18.7% (10.0%) and gearing was 0.7 (2.9). Rolling 12-month
return on capital employed (ROCE) was 16.8% (-14.4%).

January - June

Net sales in January - June decreased significantly compared to the same period
last year, standing at 552.9 million euros (906.0 million euros in January -
June 2009). Operating loss was -19.8 million euros (-49.8) and excluding
restructuring costs -13.6 million euros (-35.7). Income before taxes was 61.3
million euros (-73.3). Earnings per share (EPS) were 1.05 euros (-2.07). Cash
flow after investing activities was -18.0 million euros (21.5).

Gross capital expenditures on fixed assets in January - June amounted to 5.6
million euros (3.5), 1.0% of net sales (0.4%). Depreciation totaled 16.7 million
euros (34.9).

Strategic Business Units

Elcoteq has two Strategic Business Units (SBUs) as its segments: Consumer
Electronics and System Solutions. In the second quarter of 2010, Consumer
Electronics contributed 76% (75%) and System Solutions 24% (25%) of the Group's
net sales.

Net sales of the Consumer Electronics SBU in the second quarter were 251.7
million euros (328.1). The segment's operating income was 1.3 million euros
(loss -4.6) and excluding restructuring costs 4.3 million euros (loss -4.6). The
Consumer Electronics SBU made strong progress in reducing operating costs,
expanding service content and developing the business mix towards higher margin
products.

Net sales of the System Solutions SBU in April-June were 80.6 million euros
(107.9). The decline was mainly due to the divestment of Ericsson-related
operations in Tallinn, Estonia to Ericsson in July 2009. The segment's operating
income was 1.7 million euros (1.5) and excluding restructuring costs 2.6 million
euros (1.9).

Personnel

At the end of June 2010, the Group employed 9,999 (12,996) people. The
geographical distribution of the workforce was as follows: Europe 3,807 (5,928),
Asia-Pacific 2,820 (3,187) and Americas 3,372 (3,881). The average number of
employees on Elcoteq's direct payroll between January and June was 8,369
(13,088).

Balance Sheet Strengthening

On April 16, the company announced an exchange offer containing both a hybrid
loan and warrants for the holders of its remaining outstanding debentures in an
aggregate nominal amount of approximately 35 million euros. The exchange offer
was completed on May 7, 2010, and as a result the holders of debentures valued
at 21.5 million euros tendered their debentures for a hybrid bond and warrants.
As a result of this transaction as well as the issuance of 29 million euros in
hybrid bonds and the redemption of 105 million euros of debentures in January
2010, the company's indebtedness and solvency have improved significantly. The
solvency has improved from 10.0% in the second quarter of 2009 to 18.7% in the
second quarter of 2010 and gearing from 2.9 to 0.7, respectively.

Also, as earlier announced the company aims at arranging a rights issue during
2010 to increase liquidity and to further strengthen the balance sheet. During
the second half of 2010, the actions in support of the strengthening of the
balance sheet will have a significant role in the agenda of the company's
management and board.

Restructuring Plan

On May 19, Elcoteq and Optogan CJSC completed the transaction whereby Optogan
acquired 100 percent of the shares in Elcoteq's subsidiary in St. Petersburg,
Russia including its premises and personnel of about 40 employees but excluding
any customer agreements. The transaction reduces Elcoteq's total costs by
approximately 2 million euros on an annual basis and had a considerable positive
impact on the second-quarter cash flow.

Elcoteq has now consolidated all European electronics manufacturing and after
market service activities to its units in Pécs, Hungary and Tallinn, Estonia.

Shares and Shareholders

At the end of June 2010, the company had 128,132,185 shares divided into
22,362,185 series A shares and 105,770,000 series K Founders' shares. All the
series K Founders' shares are held by the company's three principal owners.

Elcoteq had 10,654 shareholders on June 30, 2010. There were a total of
4,009,399 foreign and nominee registered A shares.

Elcoteq SE's Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on April 28, 2010, in
Luxembourg. The Meeting confirmed the consolidated and parent company's income
statements and balance sheets for the financial year 2009 and discharged the
members of the Board of Directors and the statutory auditor from liability for
the financial year. The Meeting approved the Board's proposal that no dividend
will be distributed for the financial year January 1 - December 31, 2009.

The Meeting re-elected the following persons to the Board of Directors:
President Martti Ahtisaari; Mr. Heikki Horstia, BSc (Econ.); Mr. Eero Kasanen,
Executive Dean, Aalto University School of Economics; Mr. François Pauly,
General Manager of Sal. Oppenheim Jr. & Cie S.C.A; and Mr. Jorma Vanhanen,

Board members, and they represent more than half of the Board's members.

The AGM approved the proposal of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors
to appoint the firm of authorized public accountants KPMG Audit S.à.r.l under
the supervision of Mr. Philippe Meyer as the company's auditors for the
financial year ending on December 31, 2010.

Elcoteq SE's Board of Directors held its constitutive meeting on Monday, May

Mr. Heikki Horstia as the Deputy Chairman.

Mr. Heikki Horstia was elected as the Chairman of the Audit Committee and Mr.

Mr. Antti Piippo, Mr. Henry Sjöman and Mr. Juha Toivola. In addition, the
Chairman of the Board, Mr. Jorma Vanhanen, was elected from among the Board
members.

No working committee was re-established.

Changes in Elcoteq's Board of Directors

On June 24, Dr. Sándor Csányi announced his resignation from the Board of
Directors with immediate effect. Dr. Csányi resigned at his own request and due
to personal reasons.

Events After the Review Period

On July 1, Sharp informed Elcoteq that further deliveries of the KIN smartphone
product lineup will be put on hold. Elcoteq had already delivered to Sharp the
KIN smartphones for the US markets with revenues amounting to more than one
third of the original guidance for Sharp business in 2010, i.e. over 150 million
euros in net sales in 2010. Deliveries for the European markets were scheduled
to start later in the autumn.

On July 5, a total of 12,625 Elcoteq series A shares were returned free of
consideration to the company in connection with the resignation of Dr. Sándor
Csányi from the company's Board of Directors. Elcoteq had transferred in May
2010 12,625 shares to each member of the Board of Directors as part of the
remuneration of the Board and after Dr. Sándor Csányi's resignation from the
Board of Directors on June 24, 2010, the shares allocated to him were
transferred back to the company. The company now holds a total of 12,625 own
shares.

On July 20, a total of 105,770,000 Elcoteq SE's series K founders' shares owned
by the three founder shareholders of the company, Mr. Antti Piippo, Mr. Henry
Sjöman and Mr. Jorma Vanhanen, were converted into Series A shares in accordance
with Article 18 of the Articles of Association of the company. The conversion
took place at a ratio of ten series K founders' shares to one series A share,
i.e. the total number of series A shares grew by 10,577,000 from 22,362,185 to
32,939,185. After the conversion Mr. Piippo, Mr. Sjöman and Mr. Vanhanen hold in
total 13,452,862 Series A shares, which corresponds to 40.85% ownership in the
company. The conversion reduced the total voting share of Mr. Piippo, Mr. Sjöman
and Mr. Vanhanen from 84.81% to current 40.85%.

Short-Term Risks and Uncertainty Factors

The company operates in a working capital intensive business environment where
the access to and availability of sufficient financing represents a risk factor.
The Board of Directors has assessed the company's financing requirements against
the business plan. The company's ability to implement its business plan is
highly dependent on the availability of debt financing, better control of
working capital and cash pooling as well as ability to stabilize the financing
structure, including the strengthening of shareholders' equity under volatile
market conditions.

The company bases component purchases and resource commitments on customers'
forecasts. Sudden changes in customers' demand may cause the company to have
excess inventories which are under customers' liability but which the company
may have to finance for a certain period of time. The company makes a
significant part of its purchases and sales in currencies other than the euro
and currency fluctuations may result in deviations from business plans. The
ability to provide the right service offering to customers is a key element in
keeping existing customers and winning new customers. Under the changing market
conditions, a failure to identify and respond to the customer requirements may
prevent the company from achieving its strategic objectives and the above
operative targets.

The company's key short-term operative challenges are to increase sales,
proactively manage fixed costs according to sales fluctuations and significantly
improve profitability.

Prospects

Third-quarter net sales are expected to be lower than in the second quarter,
mainly because the KIN smartphone product deliveries were put on hold at the
beginning of July. Operating income is expected to further improve from the
second quarter.

As communicated earlier, the company expects the operating profit to turn
positive for the second half of 2010 based on the impact of implemented cost
reduction actions, the stabilization of underlying business and the contribution
of recently won new customer contracts. Due to the restructuring of subordinated
debt, the net income for 2010 will be clearly positive.

The Board's and management's key activities are focused towards further
strengthening the balance sheet through equity-related transactions and
long-term financing arrangements. In the second half of 2010, the company will
continue to carry out actions to further optimize its cost structure and
increase working capital efficiency.

Elcoteq plans its material purchases and capacity based on the forecasts
received from customers and market analysis. Such forecasts may fluctuate during
the forecast period, causing uncertainty in the company's own forecasts.
