Wuppertal, 25 May 2012 - GESCO Group generated record sales and earnings in
financial year 2011/2012 (1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012). According to the as
yet unapproved figures, Group sales soared by around 24 % to EUR 415.4 million
(previous year: EUR 335.2 million). Group net income after minority interest
rose even more steeply with at least 48 %, reaching EUR 22.6 million (EUR 15.3
million). 

These figures slightly exceed the last increased guidance from February 2012,
which forecast Group sales of EUR 410 million and Group net income after
minority interest of EUR 22 million. 

The dividend is also expected to hit a record level: based on the preliminary
figures, the Executive Board assumes a dividend proposal of EUR 2.90 per share.
This would correspond to a 45 % rise compared to the previous year's figure of
EUR 2.00 per share. 

The financial statements for 2011/2012 and the guidance for financial year
2012/2013 will be announced at the accounts press conference and analysts'
meeting on 28 June 2012.
