Schaltbau Group raises forecast for 2011

Munich, 14 April 2011 – According to preliminary figures, the companies of the Schaltbau Group registered a new record order-intake of EUR 101.1 million for the first three months of the current fiscal year, an improvement of almost 30 per cent on the total of EUR 78.2 million posted one year earlier. During the same period Group sales rose from EUR 62.1 million to EUR 74.1 million. All of the Group’s business fields contributed towards this pleasing result. Due to the Group’s dynamic business performance, which surpasses previous expectations by far, and in view of the unchanged positive outlook for the months to come, assuming market conditions remain unchanged, the Executive Board of Schaltbau Holding AG is upwardly adjusting its forecast for the fiscal year 2011. Accordingly, Group sales revenue for 2011 is now predicted to rise to approximately EUR 300 million (previous forecast: EUR 290 million). Earnings from operating activities (EBIT) are now forecast to total EUR 26.0 million (previously: EUR 23.5 million) and Group net profit is expected to reach EUR 18.6 million (previously: EUR 15.8 million). Earnings will also be positively affected by higher exceptional effects recorded within the result from investments. Earnings per share are thus predicted to amount to EUR 8.00. The convertible bond 2007/2012 (ISIN DE000A0TFWY1 – WKN A0TFWY) is expected to be converted in full. The final deadline for converting the convertible bond is 6 May 2011.
