@@start.t1@@--------------------------------------------------------------------------------   ad-hoc disclosure pursuant to section 15 of the WpHG transmitted by euro   adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution.

Garbsen, 11 May 2010 - LPKF Laser & Electronics AG boosted its turnover  in  the first three months of the ongoing  financial  year to  EUR 17.6  million  -  an increase of 74 % year-on-year. The quarterly EBIT  of  EUR 4.3  million  and  an EBIT margin of 24 % were also above the forecast.

This extraordinarily strong growth is attributable to the very good   development in  business  by  the  Cutting  &  Structuring  Lasers   Segment  and  the  Rapid Prototyping Segment. In addition, large orders were also being transacted.

All segments are currently enjoying a rise in incoming orders. A   broadening  of the base for the growth in turnover is therefore expected.

The Board of Managing Directors recently confirmed the rise in the forecast  for the ongoing year, expecting a turnover of at least EUR 60 million  and  an  EBIT margin of at least 14 %.

LPKF Laser & Electronics AG shares are listed  in  the  Prime   Standard  of  the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN 0006450000).
