Net income for the first three months of 2000 is higher than for all of fiscal year 1999. New records in order intake for Clean Systems and Photonics business divisions. Asset Management company division successfully introduced Asclepion-Meditec AG to Frankfurt's Neuer Markt.

JENOPTIK AG of Jena, Germany (security code No. 622910) has begun fiscal year 2000 with new records in earnings, sales, order backlog and order intake. Last Wednesday, the technology group presented the figures for the first quarter of 2000 at its general meeting in Erfurt.

Important notes concerning the group's sales and earnings growth.

For the first quarter of 1999, the figures for the business  division Telcommunications (Krone AG) and the business area Clean Room Automation (Jenoptik Infab) of the business division Clean Systems were still integrated into the company figures. They  will no longer be included in the report for fiscal year 2000 due to the reorganization of the group. Thus the sales figures are only comparable to an extent.

Jenoptik's sales and earnings growth is mostly dependent on contractually determined finishing dates in facility engineering. These dates usually fall toward the end of the year. Furthermore, sales are created at erratic intervals through the sale of investments by the Asset Management business division. Therefore the figures from the first quarter cannot be extended to include the rest of the year.
