Quarterly Financial Reporting

03.05.2012

2011 performance disclosed as prelude to upcoming release of 2012 Jan-March
financial results

ZURICH, May 3, 2012 -- The Board of Directors of gategroup Holding AG announced
on March 15 its decision to introduce quarterly financial reporting to
facilitate performance tracking of gategroup by shareholders and investors. The
report on May 10 will be the first ever for the January-March period since the
Company listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange in 2009.

In view of this upcoming May 10 release on performance for the first three
months of 2012 gategroup today is disclosing financial results from last year's
first quarter to provide historical context. 

The airline industry, gategroup's largest customer base, is a highly seasonal
business, and the first quarter is typically the weakest. This seasonality is
reflected in gategroup's performance as well.

Results for the 2011 January-March period are as follows:


     Q1 2011                In CHF million
Revenue                         638.4
Segment                          24.4
Segment EBITDA margin             3.8%
Operating profit                  3.9
Operating profit margin           0.6%
