Press Release

Accu Holding Pre-Publishes 2015 Sales

Emmenbrücke, 6th of January 2016 - Accu Holding AG (ACUN SW) closed its
financial year 2015 with unaudited consolidated turnover of CHF 156m (previous
CHF 132.9m). This excludes a potential positive one-time effect attributable to
the implementation of a POC accounting method for project based revenues within
the Cieffe Group.

Total turnover has been affected by special factors. The continued drop in oil
price, as already stated in our H1 2015 press release, negatively affected
Industrial Yarns (Nexis), impacting the formula of the price calculation for the
end customer, resulting in a value reduction of CHF -10.1m. However, margins or
operating profit remain unaffected. In term of volume Nexis Group improved
significantly by 12.3% to 31'831 tonnes (previous 28'354 t).  Furthermore, the
Surface Technology division in Switzerland (RCT) changed its accounting system
to toll manufacturing with a key customer per end September 2015. For the last
three months of the calendar year 2015 this technical loss of turnover amounted
to CHF - 0.9m. Adjusted by these one-time effects, total sales for the fiscal
year 2015 would have reached CHF 167m and matched our financial turnover

Assuming an exchange rate of EUR/CHF 1.08 the order backlog by year end 2015 for
Accu Group stood at a solid CHF 64.1m. Further information will be disseminated
following the publication of the full year 2015 report in April 2016.
