Financial Figures/Balance Sheet
15.02.2013


Reporting sales revenues of EUR 227.4 million for the fiscal year 2012, Westag &
Getalit AG was able to match the previous year's gratifying level of sales (EUR
227.1 million). At EUR 48.9 million (previous year: EUR 48.7 million) exports
also remained almost constant despite the precarious economic situation in
Europe.

Earnings before income tax amounted to EUR 10.8 million (previous year: EUR 11.8
million) in fiscal 2012. 
As already pointed out in the previous quarterly reports, results were affected
by the inferior quality of certain sourced raw materials and the resulting
increase in the cost of manufacturing our products. 

Reflecting the trend in earnings before tax, net profit for the year reached EUR
7.5 million (previous year: EUR 8.2 million).

All above figures are provisional and are subject to the ongoing audit of the
financial statements. The final figures as well as a profit appropriation
proposal will be communicated in an ad-hoc press release on March 14, 2013
following the adoption of the financial statements by the Supervisory Board. 

The above press release and further information on Westag & Getalit are
available on the Internet at www.westag-getalit.de.
