Annual General Meeting approves a dividend of 60 cents per share

2009 sales revenues and EBIT down on the record levels of 2008

Gleisdorf/Vienna, April 8, 2010

As expected, Binder+Co AG shareholders took positive note of the 2009 financial
statements presented at yesterday´s Annual General Meeting. In fact, despite the
tense general economic situation of the past financial year, the Gleisdorf-based
processing, environmental and packaging technology specialist was able to show a
solid result. At EUR 63.13 million, sales revenues were 14.1% down on the record
figure for 2008. However, as a consequence of increased earnings power, as
compared to the preceding year, EBIT only weakened by 7.5%. Order intake fell
back to the level of 2006 and amounted to EUR 49.83 million (2008: EUR 85.25
million).

In 2010 the management anticipates figures for sales revenues and EBIT that will
correspond with the average level of the past three financial years. However,
should the global economy recover in the current financial year, corresponding
opportunities for growth could open up in future.

Following the approval granted by yesterday´s Annual General Meeting, Binder+Co
will pay its shareholders a dividend of 60 cents per share for 2009 (EUR 0.32
basic dividend plus a bonus dividend of EUR 0.28). The dividend for the record
year 2008 amounted to EUR 0.64.

Management Board member, Karl Grabner: "With the agreed dividends we have
underlined our commitment to offering our shareholders reasonable participation
in company success." 

The Annual General Meeting approved the nomination of the Vienna-based company, unitreu Wirtschaftsprüfungs- und Steuerberatungs GmbH, as the auditors for the 2010 financial year.

In addition, the company articles were adjusted to match the new regulations contained in the 2009 Share Rights Amendment Act through changes to §§3, 10, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 24.
