Company Information


Hamm (euro adhoc) - June 19, 2012 - SMT Scharf AG (WKN 575198, ISIN
DE0005751986), technology and world market leader for rail-bound railway systems
for underground mines, has received an order in Russia for monorail hanging
railways. The order comprises the delivery of two train sets, each of which
consists of one DZ1800 diesel cat and three heavy-load lifting beams. The order
is worth more than EUR 1 million in total. The train sets are to be delivered
and invoiced in the third quarter of 2012. 

Christian Dreyer, CEO of SMT Scharf AG, explains the special aspect of this
order as follows: "The customer, one of Russia's largest mining groups, has
focused on one of our competitor's products to date. We are now involved in one
of its mines for the first time due to having intensively marketed to this
customer over several years. This gives us the opportunity to persuade the
customer of the advantages of SMT Scharf AG's quality products, and to thereby
win follow-up orders in the future."
