Company Information

01.07.2012

Bad Oeynhausen, July 1st, 2012 - Balda AG has sold through its subsidiary Balda
Investment Singapore Pte. Ltd. 15,998,365 shares of TPK Holding Co., Ltd. and
generated proceeds in the amount of approx. EUR 150 million. The transaction was
made via block-trade organized by the investment firm UBS. The sale, which will
not affect the dividend rights of Balda in TPK Holding for the business year
2011, will be recognized in profit and loss of the short business year from
January 1st 2012 to June 30, 2012 in the same way as the sale already conducted
in February 2012 of 20,000,000 TPK-shares with generated proceeds of approx. EUR
238 million. As a consequence, a significant profit on group-level has to be
expected. 

The transaction further reduces the holding of Balda Investments Singapore Pte.
Ltd. in TPK Holding Co., Ltd. from 7.6 % to approx. 0.8 %. The management board
intends to sell these remaining shares,  that will be locked up for 90 days, at
an optimized value and to fully dispose of the non-strategic TPK-investment. It
also confirmed the aim to distribute a significant amount of the transaction as
extraordinary dividend to the shareholders of Balda AG.
