Au / Wädenswil, 11 April 2017 - Von Roll Holding AG published its first quarter
2017 results today. Following a lean period of over 4 years, the Von Roll Group
has once again returned to a positive first quarter profit, amounting to CHF 4.6
million (previous year: CHF -3.4 million). At CHF 96.0 million, orders received
in 2017 are significantly above the last year's level of CHF 88.0 million, and
turnover has risen by 8.5% to CHF 93.2 million.

The main drivers of the positive business development were successful structural
improvements and increased demand for our products in the Electrical Insulation
and Composites sectors. Based on rising order volumes and the programmes
launched in the new business year to increase both sales and production
efficiency, the Von Roll Group is confident about the business outlook for the
remainder of 2017.
