9-month report


Garbsen, 12 November 2012 - Due to its continued positive business performance,
LPKF Laser & Electronics AG is slightly raising the guidance for the current
financial year it made in March 2012. The Management Board expects the LPKF
Group to post revenue between EUR 106 million and EUR 109 million in 2012
(previously: between EUR 100 million and EUR 105 million). The EBIT margin
should be between 16% and 17% in 2012 (previously: between 15% and 17%). 

The strong revenue growth this year is due in part to a large order from the
solar industry. In view of the continuing weakness of the solar market, the
company is preparing for a decline in revenue in the Solar Equipment product
group and therefore expects a temporary slowdown in revenue growth in 2013 with
an EBIT margin of 14% to 16%. Given a stable economic environment, LPKF expects
revenue to grow again by approximately 10% and the EBIT margin to come in
between 15% and 17% in 2014. 

The shares of LPKF Laser & Electronics AG are listed on the TecDAX index of the
Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN 0006450000).

The full quarterly financial report (1 January to 30 September 2012) will be
published on 13 November 2012 at
