annual result

Ahrensburg (euro adhoc) - Sales: EUR 55.9 million (previous year: EUR 55.1
million)
- Earnings before taxes: EUR 5.6 million (previous year: EUR 5.6 million)
- Free cash flow: EUR 6.3 million (previous year: EUR 6.9 million)

March 28, 2013 - BASLER AG, one of the leading global manufacturers
of industrial cameras, is presenting today its audited annual report 2012.

The group's sales increased in fiscal year 2012 by 1 % to EUR 55.9 million
(previous year: EUR 55.1 million). The gross profit margin increased to 48.1 %
after 44.3 % in the previous year. The earnings before taxes amounted to EUR 5.6
million (previous year: EUR 5.6 million). The pre-tax return amounted to 10.0 %
(previous year: 10.2 %). With these results, the previous guidance communicated
by the company has been achieved at the upper end.

The cash flow from operational activity amounted to EUR 12.6 million (previous
year: EUR 13.7 million -8 %). The free cash flow calculated as the sum of cash
flows from operational activity and investment reached a value of EUR 6.3
million (previous year: EUR 6.9 million, -9%).

In 2012, Basler AG achieved again one of the best results in the company's
history. The focusing on the camera business agreed upon 4 years ago was
concluded at the end of the reporting period so that the company starts as a
pure camera manufacturer into its 25th fiscal year of 2013.

Against this background, as in the two previous years, Basler AG will propose to
this year's general meeting the distribution of a dividend of 30 cents per
share.

For fiscal year 2013, the Basler group expects the sales revenues to increase to
EUR 60 million to EUR 63 million. Due to attractive growth opportunities in the
industrial camera market, investments in future sales growth will be continued
with unabated intensity. As far as earnings are concerned, we are assuming a
solid pre-tax return between 8 % and 10 % depending on the sales trend.
