The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wuppertal, 24 May 2013 - GESCO Group slightly exceeded its goals in financial year 2012/2013 (1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013). According to the as yet unapproved figures, Group sales climbed by 6 % to EUR 440.4 million (previous year: EUR 415.4 million). Group net income after minority interest reached EUR 20.9 million; the previous year's figure of EUR 22.5 million also included a one-off effect of EUR 0.7 million. Earnings per share pursuant to IFRS amounted to EUR 6.30; the previous year's figure of EUR 7.40 was based on a significantly lower weighted average number of shares resulting from a capital increase of almost 10 % of the share capital carried out at the end of the previous financial year. The figures are up slightly on the guidance last confirmed in February 2013, which had forecasted Group sales of EUR 438 million and Group net income for the year after minority interest of EUR 20.5 million. Overall, GESCO Group generated record sales and the third-best result in the company's history. Based on the preliminary figures, the Executive Board assumes a dividend proposal of EUR 2.50 per share; the previous year saw a record dividend of EUR 2.90 per share. The financial statements for 2012/2013 and the guidance for financial year 2013/2014 will be announced at the accounts press conference and analysts' meeting on 11 June 2013. The previous year's earnings figures in the consolidated financial statements for 2012/2013 are lower than previously reported due to the advance application of the new IAS 19 provisions regarding the recognition of pension and partial retirement obligations. Group net income for the year after minority interest for financial year 2011/2012 is down approximately EUR 0.1 million on that reported in the previous year, while earnings per share pursuant to IFRS are EUR 0.04 lower.
