---------------------------------------------------------------------   Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc.   The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. ---------------------------------------------------------------------


Hönle (ISIN: DE 000 515710 1), a leading systems supplier of industrial UV technology, posted another revenue and earnings increase in the first half of 2004/2005.

The Hönle Group’s revenues improved by 6.7 % to EUR 11.1 million in the first half of the year. EBIT was up by 36.6 % to EUR 1.6 million. Net profit for the period grew by 27.6 % to EUR 1.2 million. The revenues of EUR 4.6 million reported in the second quarter of 2004/2005 were below the revenue level of EUR 5.6 million reported in the same period in the previous year. In previous periods, quarterly fluctuations in revenues and earnings have been indicative of Hönle’s business development. They are founded in the large proportion of project business.

The capital ratio amounts to 83.1 %. Cash and cash equivalents (liquid assets, financial assets, own shares) now amount to EUR 16.2 million. This represents a cash value of EUR 3.10 per share.

Outlook: In the second quarter of the financial year, incoming orders developed positively, and orders on hand as of 31 March 2005 were clearly above the level as of 31 December 2004. Therefore Hönle expects that third quarter revenues and earnings will be up on those of the second quarter.
