- Forecast for 2011 confirmed

Directly from the "VISION", the worldwide leading trade fair for vision
technology taking place in Stuttgart, Germany, the company announces today that
the first nine months of the fiscal year 2011 were successful for Basler AG.

Despite the continuing uncertainty in the financial markets and the cyclical
slow down during the past months, Basler AG successfully continued its
profitable growth in sales.

In the first nine months, the incoming orders amounted to EUR 42.4 million     
(+3 %). In the reporting period, sales increased by 8 % to EUR 41.4 million.
Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) increased by 9 % to EUR 5.8 million.
The return before taxes and interest increased to 14.0 %. Earnings before taxes
(EBT) climbed disproportionately by 20 % to EUR 4.8 million. The pre-tax return
amounted to 11.6 %. The operational cash flow developed particularly well and
increased by 70 % to EUR 9.2 million. At the end of the reporting period, the
liquid assets amounted to EUR 6.8 million, exceeding the previous year's figure
by 39 %.

"The positive course during the first nine months shows that Basler AG will
achieve very good results also in 2011 and continue its profitable growth. The
growth is driven by our camera business that will increase in the double-digit
percentage range in 2011" explains Dr. Dietmar Ley (CEO). "The trade fair
visitors` positive reactions to our new products strengthens our conviction to
be able to further increase our market share in 2012."

Based on the positive results of the first nine months, Basler confirms its
forecast for the complete year 2011. According to the forecast the group's
turnover will range between EUR 54.0 million and EUR 58.0 million (previous
year: EUR 51.0 million). The earnings before taxes will be at least EUR 5.4
million (previous year: EUR 5.0 million).
