Roding, April 27, 2005: Mühlbauer Holding AG & Co. KGaA, quoted on the Prime Standard (ISIN: DE0006627201), is a worldwide active provider of technologically innovative security solutions in a market segment labeled by the company as 'TECURITY-market'. With an order income of EUR35.9 million (35.8) — slightly above the already high level of last year's reference period — and an 85.1% increase in order backlog to impressive EUR77.7 million (42.0), the company takes an extremely optimistic view for Q2, 2005. This positive outlook is further consolidated by the increasing demand for system solutions in the area of smart labels, which accounts for most of the order intake in the first three weeks of Q2 worth EUR14.9 million. In the current fiscal year, the company has already sold more technology solutions for producing smart labels than in the entire year before. All in all, the company managed to further extend its volume in sales compared to 2004 by another 17.5% to EUR24.7 million (21.0) with a consequent absolute increase in all regions. As a result of the project business and the trend towards a weak Q1, total sales, as was to be expected, are lagging behind the positive development in order income — causing the result trend to not yet benefit from the positive business development. The EBIT amounted to EUR1.6 million (1.9) and earnings before taxes totaled EUR1.9 million (2.1) — net earnings and earnings per share came to EUR1.2 million (1.4) and EUR0.08 (0.09). Free cash flows of EUR 5.3 million (6.6) were once again on a high level.
