Westag & Getalit AG launches share buy-back programme

---------------------------------------------------------------------   Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc.   The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. ---------------------------------------------------------------------

31.05.2005

Having obtained the Supervisory Board’s approval, the Management Board of Westag & Getalit AG has decided to repurchase up to 300,000 Westag & Getalit AG preference shares at favourable prices. This buy-back programme was authorised by the August 12, 2004 Annual General Meeting in accordance with Section 71 Paragraph 1 (8) of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The programme commences on June 1, 2005. The shares will be bought back through the stock market at prices which are no more than 10% higher or lower than the average closing price of the preference shares on the Frankfurt stock exchange on the three days preceding a repurchase.

Even though the declining profit trend seen in the first quarter of the current financial year will apparently become even more pronounced in the second quarter, the Management Board anticipates an improved profit performance in the medium term and therefore considers the company’s own shares to be an attractive investment.
