Oberkirch (euro adhoc) - PWO agrees on dividend proposal for fiscal year 2011

Oberkirch, March 27, 2012 - As already reported by Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG on
March 14, 2012, the Company has completed a successful fiscal year 2011. An
increase in Group revenue of 25.3 percent to EUR 331.1 million (p/y: EUR 264.2
million) resulted in a disproportional increase in net income for the period and
earnings per share of around 40 percent to EUR 9.0 million (p/y: EUR 6.5
million) and EUR 3.61 per share (p/y: EUR 2.58), respectively.

The company expects this positive business development to continue in the
future. Therefore, today the Management Board and the Supervisory Board have
decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting on May 24, 2012 to increase the
dividend to EUR 1.40 per share (p/y: EUR 1.00). This underlines the PWO shares´
claim as a high-yield equity investment.
