Earnings Forecast/Sustainable Forestmangement
21.02.2013


Zug/Zurich, 21 February 2013 - Due to the deepened recession in the Benelux
countries sales of the business unit Europe turned out worse than previously
anticipated. Additionally, in the final weeks of last year, the veneer plant in
Gabon faced a technical problem, which has been solved by now. However, it led
to a short term production decrease. Hence, Precious Woods will not achieve the
previously anticipated EBITDA result equivalent to the result in 2011. The group
now expects an EBITDA result for 2012 of between USD - 3 to - 4 million.

Despite continued efforts to secure land rights in Brazil the group books
additional provisions in the amount of USD 1.4 million.  This is done as a
precautionary measure in order to account for newly available information on
land titles.

At the same time it can be noted that the Group's liquidity is assured for the
current year as a result of the successful placement of two Convertible Bonds
and further cost reductions. 

The detailed business results shall be published on 30 April 2013.
