3-month report

22.06.2011

22 June 2011

In the first quarter of its 2011|12 financial year, AGRANA boosted it pre-
exceptionals operating profit from around EUR 34m to approximately EUR 62m.

All three segments, Sugar, Starch and Fruit, contributed to this exceptionally
positive earnings development. On the one hand, the optimisation programme
initiated in the prior years had a positive impact on the pre-exceptionals
operating profit while, on the other, the Group also benefited from the
favourable market conditions in both the sugar and starch segments in the first
three months of the business year.

Group revenue also improved during the first quarter 2011|12, rising from
around EUR 541m to EUR 613m.

Due to this very positive development in the first three months, AGRANA now
expects a significant improvement in results across all segments in the full
2011|12 financial year.

As scheduled, the Group will be publishing further details of the development
of business and additional information on the various segments on 14 July 2011.
