6-month report

29.08.2011

St. Marien, August 29, 2011 - The technological Group HTI High Tech Industries
AG ("HTI"), listed in the prime market of the Vienna Stock Exchange, reports on
positive business development within the first half-year 2011. From January
until June 2011 the revenues of the HTI Group increased by 7.1% to EUR 105.2
million, compared to the same period last year. All earnings figures were
further improved compared to last year. This was made possible by good
utilization in all segments and a further improved cost structure.

The operative earnings before non-recurring items, interest, tax, depreciation
and amortization (EBITDA) increased from EUR 9.1 million to EUR 9.2 million
compared to the same period last year. The operative earnings before
non-recurring items, interest and tax (EBIT) in comparison to the same period
last year, increased by 26.1% to EUR 4.1 million. The half-year EBT turned from
EUR -0.3 million to EUR 1.9 million. The EBIT-margin improved from 3.3% to 3.9%,
the EBT-margin from -0.3% to 1.8%. 
The half-year net result after tax improved by EUR 3 million to EUR 2.2 million.
As a result of that the net result-margin increased substantially from -0.8% to
2.1%. The earnings per share turned from -0.03 in the first half-year 2010 to
now EUR 0.08.

The equity measures, implemented during the past few months, like for example
the cash capital increase in the amount of 6.6 million, led to a significant
increase of consolidated equity of now EUR 45.3 million (after EUR 25.5 million
as of mid-year 2010).

`We were able to continue our positive business development in the first
half-year 2011 and also managed to extend our existing market position. We are
totally on track for the whole year 2011´, comments HTI CEO Peter Glatzmeier on
the business development.

Outlook
The good situation in call forwards in the segment Lightweight Construction, the
high order situation in the segments Engineering and Energy Technology as well
as a variety of promising projects, currently under negotiation, basically allow
the expectation of continuation of the positive business development for the
second half-year 2011 for HTI. Precondition for this, however, is that the
latest turbulences on the financial markets are limited to the capital markets
only and do not have any influence on the cyclic branches like the automotive-,
steel- and construction industry. With a mostly stable economic environment
consolidated revenues significantly above the EUR 200 million barrier and a
clear positive EBIT can be expected.
