Wuppertal, 9 November 2011 - In the first half (1 Apr. to 30 Sep. 2011) of the
current financial year 2011/2012, GESCO Group recorded strong incoming order and
sales growth as well as a way above-average rise in key earnings figures.
Business in the third quarter also remained at a high level and order backlog
stood at a record high at its end. In addition, a positive one-off effect of
around EUR 0.7 million resulting from two legal disputes will be recognised in
the third quarter. 

GESCO AG is increasing its guidance in view of these developments. The company
now expects Group sales of approximately EUR 400 million (previously: EUR 390
million), Group net income after minority interest of roughly EUR 21 million
(previously: EUR 19 million) and earnings per share pursuant to IFRS of EUR 6.95
(previously: EUR 6.29). 

The complete Interim Report 2011/2012 will be published on 15 November 2011.
