Süd-Chemie AG, Munich will significantly exceed its Group targets previously forecast for the 2006 financial year of EUR950 million in the case of sales and an operating profit (EBIT) of some EUR73 million. Based on the preliminary consolidated financial statements for 2006, which have not yet been certified by the auditors, sales are expected to reach just over EUR1 billion and the EBIT around EUR83 million. This rise in earnings is due to performance in the process catalyst sector in the fourth quarter of 2006, which far exceeded expectations.

The final 2006 financial statements for the Süd-Chemie Group are to be approved by the Supervisory Board at its financial audit meeting on 30 March 2007 and published at the annual press conference to be held in Munich, Lenbachplatz 6 at 10.00 a.m. on 23 April 2007.
