Zug/Zurich, 2 December 2011 - Due to a series of factors, Precious Woods Holding
Ltd is revising downwards its operating results (EBITDA) forecast of at least
USD 2 million for the current financial year, as issued in its Half-Year Report.
This correction is a result of both internal and external influences. Due to
capacity constraints at the port of Libreville, Precious Woods Gabon was able to
ship only a portion of its products, and the starting phase of production at the
new hardwood sawmill, opened on 1 July 2011, was initially slower than expected.
What is more, sales in Brazil have been lower than anticipated, resulting in
further additional severance costs as part of the turnaround process. The
revised EBITDA forecast is now in the order of USD -2 to -3 million, which
nevertheless still represents an improvement of around USD 7 million on the
previous year, primarily attributable to operational progress.
