Effects of German car manufacturersÂ’ short-term stoppage on Eybl International

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


Short-term reductions in car output impact Eybl International in final quarter 2004/05 negatively

As announced in third quarter report, revenues for financial 2004/05 slightly down on previous year

Earnings position stable at last yearÂ’s level

German luxury car manufacturers were forced to stop production for several days at the end of January and the beginning of February as a result of quality problems with a German supplier of diesel fuel injection systems. This unplanned, short-term stoppage will impact EyblÂ’s final quarter results for 2004/05 negatively.

The suddenness of the event left Eybl no chance of bridging the gap with replacement business.

Sales revenues for financial 2004/05 will be about 2-3% below last yearÂ’s levels.

On the basis of current market forecasts, earnings at approximately last yearÂ’s level are expected.

Since order intake continues to be satisfactory, Eybl Management expects a compensating increase in sales in first half 2005/06.
