3-month report

Hamm, May 14, 2007 - SMT Scharf AG (WKN 575198, ISIN DE0005751986), 
world market leader for derailment-proof railway systems in mining, 
has started into 2007 according to plan.
In the first quarter of 2007 SMT Scharf achieved a turnover of 9.1 
Mill. EUR, 26% less than in the previous year (12.2 Mill. EUR). The 
share of sales outside Germany reached 52% in the first quarter 
(previous year 48%). The order backlog was 16.2 Mill. EUR at 
quarter-end. This is 28% above the previous year´s figure (12.6 Mill.
EUR).
Operating result (EBIT) decreased by 15% to 1.6 Mill. EUR (previous 
year 1.9 Mill. EUR) while the EBIT-margin increased to 17.8% from 
15.5%. The net profit was supported by a reduced tax rate and came 
out at 1.1 Mill. EUR (previous year 1.3 Mill. EUR).
SMT Scharf further progresses in broadening its international scope. 
This leads to a larger share of projects which are delivered and 
invoiced towards the end of the year. This trend already is apparent 
in the increased order backlog.
For 2007 the Management expects that revenues will be higher than 
last year and that the net profit will be slightly higher than last 
year.
The complete financial report for the first quarter of 2007 will be 
published on the website www.smtscharf.com on May 25, 2007.
