- Difficult market conditions in second half-year
- Earnings for 2012 heavily impacted by extraordinary charges

Au / Wädenswil, Switzerland, 18 January 2013 - Due to persistently difficult
market conditions in the second half of 2012, Von Roll Holding AG has recorded
significantly weaker sales in its core markets. Consolidated sales for the 2012
business year declined by 8.5% from CHF 543 million to CHF 497 million, with a
significant 16.4% decline especially in the fourth quarter 2012. 
Large and technically demanding projects in the transformer business resulted in
delivery delays and extraordinary expenses. Reorganization and restructuring
projects also impacted transformer business during the second half of 2012. 
Furthermore, non-recurring charges and impairment losses on intangible assets
negatively affected the operating result. Von Roll expects a sharp overall
decline for the fiscal year 2012. However, the Von Roll equity ratio continues
to reflect an outstandingly robust balance and financing structure. The results
of the fiscal year 2012 will be published on 18 March 2013.
