Schrobenhausen (euro adhoc) - Some 600 shareholders, shareholders'

also reaffirmed his previous forecast: "We are well on track to achieve our
targets for this financial year." The Group expects total consolidated revenues
of EUR 1.4 billion in full-year 2011, with after-tax profit above EUR 45
million. Professor Bauer also expressed his pleasure on the recent sale of the
