Pace of growth increases; Even stronger improvement in earnings; Group restructuring completed

Nuremberg, March 24, 2006 - TA Triumph-Adler AG today announced its preliminary figures for financial year 2005. These show that TA Triumph-Adler AG generated Group sales of EUR 336.7 million in financial year 2005, 12.7 % lower than the previous year. With the previous year’s sales adjusted for holdings meanwhile divested, 2005 sales were 4.5 % higher than the comparable previous year’s figure (EUR 322.2 million). As a result, the growth achieved was above the comparable previous year’s level, while the quality of earnings from operations improved solidly.

TA Triumph-Adler generated a consolidated operating profit (EBIT) of EUR 17.9 million before extraordinary effects, interest and taxes of EUR 18.4 million following EUR 10.7 million the year before.

Net interest income came to EUR -10.2 million (previous year: EUR -8.0 million). Extraordinary expenses of EUR 9.9 million (previous year: EUR 14.9 million) were incurred through restructuring the company and its operations in financial year 2005. The net loss comes to EUR 3.1 million (previous year: EUR 11.7 million), and was thus substantially lower than the prior year.

Total consolidated assets came to EUR 422 million at December 31, 2005, following EUR 431 million at December 31, 2004. The equity ratio was 11.4 % (previous year: 12.1 %). Financial liabilities came to EUR 85.4 million following EUR 76.7 million the year before.

The operating cash flow came to EUR 28.8 million following EUR 22.5 million the year before.

A dividend will not be distributed for financial year 2005.

As a result of the positive earnings performance from operations in the core business and the efficiency improvement measures underway in the Group, the company is expecting to return to profit again in financial year 2006.
