ots Ad hoc-Service: Rational AG RATIONAL: Buoyant first half-year Sales and profits again ahead of target

The sender is solely responsible for the contents of this announcement. ----------------------------------------------------- Landsberg (ots Ad hoc-Service) - RATIONAL AG continued its rapid expansion in the first six months of 2000. With sales of DM 134m (previous year DM 111m), RATIONAL once again grew by 21% (DM 23m). This was more than DM 6m ahead of the planned growth of 15%. Particularly gratifying is the upward trend in the operating result, which increased by 23% to DM 20.8m (16.9m). Higher unit volumes and productivity increases in manufacturing more than offset rises in the cost of stainless steel and electronics.
