Au/Wädenswil, 16 March 2017 - Von Roll Holding AG today published its results
for the financial year 2016. Thanks to optimisation measures and the
consolidation and modernisation of production facilities, Von Roll improved its
operating performance in 2016 and increased its gross margin by 3.3 percentage
points year on year, as well as reducing its operating loss. Adjusted for
restructuring costs and impairments, the EBIT for the past financial year was
CHF -6.2 million, as against CHF -17.2 million in 2015.

In response to declining sales of CHF 328.1 million in 2016, the efforts to
reposition the Von Roll Group were significantly boosted and accelerated in the
second half of the last financial year. These measures include optimising our
product portfolio, reducing our personnel and administration costs and
streamlining our organisation. We are also focusing on optimising purchasing
conditions and reorganising our global sales structure. The restructuring costs
and impairments of CHF 13.9 million incurred for the reasons mentioned above led
to an overall EBIT of CHF -20.1 million.

The restructuring measures will produce savings of more than CHF 18 million in
our total underlying costs in the financial year 2017. We are also expecting
further positive contributions to our result from the programmes launched in
2017 to increase efficiency in our sales and production.

Von Roll posted a positive net result in the first two months of the new
financial year. Based on our solid order intake, we are also confident about the
rest of the year. Von Roll insulation systems for the construction of
high-voltage motors and generators remain one of the leading and most popular
system solutions on the market. Our global presence and proximity to our
customers enable us to offer tailor-made, customised solutions, for which we
continue to see great market potential.
