Ad hoc Notice

Villeroy & Boch AG - Safety Campaign by our Dutch Subsidiary

Mettlach, 24 October 2007  -  Villeroy  &  Boch  AG  announces  that its  Dutch subsidiary Ucosan B.V. is about to launch  a  safety   campaign  in  relation  to accidents caused by heavy falls.

With earlier versions of certain bath models made from  Quaryl®,  a   heavy  fall could lead to injuries caused by  cracks  in  the   material  under  unfavourable circumstances. This is why a safety campaign is now being launched.

The expenses in connection with Ucosan's safety campaign might   exceed  EUR 1m and thus have a negative effect on the annual result of the Villeroy & Boch Group.

There is no such risk as mentioned above in relation to the Quaryl®   baths  that are currently being manufactured. Consumers and  our   market  partners  will  be informed about the above safety campaign by way of notices, press  releases  and announcements on the Internet.
