Unchanged outlook BEFORE COVID-19 for the full 2020|21 financial year

No Keyword

Vienna - According to preliminary figures, AGRANA-Beteiligungs-AG achieved an
operating result (EBIT) of EUR 32.0 million for the first quarter of 2020|21 (1
March to 31 May 2020), slightly above the figure for Q1 2019|20 (EUR 30.9
million). Preliminary consolidated revenues amounted to EUR 652.6 million in the
first three months (Q1 2019|20: EUR 638.4 million).

The 3.6 percent rise in the operating result is attributable to a much improved
development of earnings in the Sugar segment during the period under review. The
result in the Starch segment was lower due to ethanol prices and in the Fruit
segment as a consequence of the weaker development of earnings for fruit juice
concentrates.

On the basis of the forecasts prepared before the incidence of COVID-19, the
AGRANA Group anticipated a significant increase in consolidated EBIT for the
full year 2020|21. This guidance remains subject to the currently unquantifiable
commercial and financial impacts, as well as the duration, of the COVID-19
pandemic.

Further details relating to the development of business in the first quarter of
2020|21 and the various segments will be published by the Group as scheduled on
9 July 2020.
