3-month report

25.04.2012

Au / Wädenswil, April 25, 2012 - Von Roll Holding AG announced its first-quarter
results today. The development of the company's business during the first three
months of 2012 was significantly influenced by the continuing uncertain economic
situation and by foreign currency translation effects. Order intake rose
slightly by 0.6% to reach CHF 160 million. At constant exchange rates, this
equals an increase of 5.7%. At current exchange rates, the industrial group's
turnover was 2.1% lower than in the previous year, amounting to CHF 140 million.
However, turnover increased by 2.1% when adjusted for currency translation
effects.

Since January 1, 2012, Von Roll's business segments are no longer based on
business applications in customer-defined sales markets. Instead, the segments
now cover all activities related to Von Roll's production processes. The newly
formed segment Von Roll Technologies covers applications in the transformers,
water and solar segments. Figures from the previous year have been adjusted
accordingly.
