Operating profit improved by 25% in 2007

Gleisdorf / Vienna, March 26, 2008

As expected, at today´s AGM, the Binder+Co AG shareholders approved the annual financial statements presented for 2007. During the past year the Gleisdorf-based processing, environmental and packaging technology specialist was once again able to achieve dynamic development in all areas. Sales were up by 25.2% at EUR 53.4 million, while EBIT was improved by 25.7% to EUR 4.9 million. At EUR 57.5 million, company order intake was also up 25.0% on the value for the preceding year.

Following today´s approval by the AGM, the positive result prompted Binder+Co to distribute a dividend of 48 cents per share to shareholders. This represents a payout ratio of around 50%. Furthermore, the AGM authorised the company´s acquisition of up to 10% of its own shares over a period of no more than 30 months. The acquired shares will be offered for acquisition to all employees, including all Management Board members, in the course of a stock option programme.

Member of the Board, Karl Grabner, "This dividend and the agreed stock option programme serve to underline our sustained success course and commitment to providing our stockholders with a commensurate share of the benefits."
