Company Information

Bad Oeynhausen (euro adhoc) - 13 December 2010 - The Supervisory Board of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange listed Balda AG, during its regular session on 10 December 2010 in Beijing, has confirmed the already initiated search for acquisition opportunities for the planned strategic expansion of Balda Medical.

A further issue on the agenda was the continued sluggish business development and the demanding conditions affecting the MobileCom business division. Call-offs continue to be unsatisfactory. Competition is still very intense and pressure on prices high. As already stated, the division is under constant critical review by the Board of Directors.

No decision was taken on the issue of a potential disposal of Balda shares held in TPK. The lock-up period for the first fifty per cent of the Balda stake in TPK closes at the end of April 2011. A decision will be made in due time before the end of the lock-up period. The Board of Directors and Supervisory Board will strive to achieve a decision that is in the interests of Balda shareholders.
