Westag & Getalit AG

EANS-Adhoc: Westag & Getalit AG
Positive sales trend in 2011; Earnings adversely affected by strong increase in commodity prices

  ad-hoc disclosure pursuant to section 15 of the WpHG transmitted by euro
  adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely
  responsible for the content of this announcement.

In the fiscal year 2011, Westag & Getalit AG was able to increase its sales
revenues by 4.8% to EUR 227.1 million (previous year: EUR 216.6 million), which
represents an improvement on the record year 2008. Although international market
conditions were much more difficult than conditions in the domestic market,
exports rose at a disproportionate rate of 13.8% to EUR 48.7 million (previous
year: EUR 42.8 million), which is especially gratifying. 

Earnings before income tax amounted to EUR 11.8 million (previous year: EUR 15.1
million). The earnings trend in 2011 was adversely affected by a sharp rise in
commodity prices, which could be offset by higher prices for our own products
only partially and in steps. 

Reflecting the trend in earnings before tax, net profit for the year reached EUR
8.2 million (previous year: EUR 10.7 million).

All above figures are provisional and are subject to the ongoing audit of the
financial statements. The final figures will be communicated in an ad-hoc press
release on March 22, 2012 following the adoption of the financial statements by
the Supervisory Board.
