Hamburg. The Jungheinrich AG (ISIN DE0006219934) was able to maintain its course for profitable growth throughout 2005 and has had a good start into 2006. In 2005, consolidated sales increased by 7 percent compared to the previous year (1,531 million euros), amounting to 1,645 million euros. This development was boosted by a strong fourth quarter 2005 with a sales increase of approx. 8 percent compared to the year-earlier period. Last year’s operating result (EBIT) increased by 22 percent, amounting to 106.9 million euros (2004: 87.4 million euros according to IFRS). EBIT return on sales totalled 6.5 percent (2004: 5.7 percent according to IFRS). Net earnings increased to 62.1 million euros (2004: 49.3 million euros). Earnings per share increased to 1.84 euros (2004: 1.47 euros).

Given this positive business development, the Jungheinrich AG Board of Management will recommend to the supervisory board that a proposal to increase the dividend be submitted at the Annual General Meeting on June 13th.
