Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 KR

I.P.S. Innovative Packaging Solutions AG
reports 2013 half year results

Baar, 2 September 2013 - In the period ending 30 June 2013, IPS Group's
joint venture company Airolux shipped over 0.7 million pieces of Airopack
to various customers translating into consolidated net sales of EUR 0.3
million. However the total sales volume lagged behind management's
expectations mainly due to unexpected delays in the start of various
customer projects and the underperforming of customers compared to their
confirmed volume requirements.

The consolidated accounts show a loss of EUR 3.4 million for the first half
of 2013 compared to a loss of EUR 2.9 million in the first six months of
2012. The operative result (EBITDA) for that period amounted to a loss of
EUR 2.3 million compared to a loss of EUR 2.0 million in the first half of
2012. The negative result reflects the fixed operational cost of the
production organisation set up to fulfil expected sales and the operational
expenses of IPS Group in connection with the successful market introduction
and the further development of the Airopack product range. In the first
half of 2013 IPS has managed to win several additional established European
companies as customers for its joint venture Airolux and the Airopack
product. IPS will publish its half year report on 27 September 2013.
