*To be proposed at the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on May 09, 2012


We are convinced, that the future course of business will be sustainable
positive. To match the demands of our customers for customer specific system
solutions and value added, we increased our research and development costs by
25 % compared to the previous year. The main target course of our activities is
further focusing on the display and system business.

For the current year we have, due to the recently weaker economic environment,
a conservative planning  and therefore expect only a slight increase in
revenues.
