Garbsen, 11 May 2010 - LPKF Laser & Electronics AG boosted its turnover in the first three months of the ongoing financial year to EUR 17.6 million - an increase of 74 % year-on-year. The quarterly EBIT of EUR 4.3 million and an EBIT margin of 24 % were also above the forecast.

This extraordinarily strong growth is attributable to the very good development in business by the Cutting & Structuring Lasers Segment and the Rapid Prototyping Segment. In addition, large orders were also being transacted.

All segments are currently enjoying a rise in incoming orders. A broadening of the base for the growth in turnover is therefore expected.

The Board of Managing Directors recently confirmed the rise in the forecast for the ongoing year, expecting a turnover of at least EUR 60 million and an EBIT margin of at least 14 %.

LPKF Laser & Electronics AG shares are listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN 0006450000).
