Airopack Technology Group AG -  HALF-YEAR REPORT 2014

Baar, September 26, 2014 - half-year report 2014

  - 6.7 million pieces of Airopack shipped to customers in the first half
    of 2014

  - Net sales 10 times higher than in the first half of 2013 at
    consolidated level

  - While the half-year income statement shows a net loss of EUR 3.0
    million, the Group is confident that its operational business will show
    a significant result improvement in the second half of 2014 and will be
    profitable going forward.


In the first half of 2014, Airopack Technology Group's joint venture
company Airolux shipped 6.7 million pieces of Airopack to its customers.
This is roughly 10 times the volume shipped in the first half of 2013, and
5 times the annual volume shipped in 2013. The main volumes were purchased
by the globally leading personal care company Procter & Gamble and the
US-based company Method Products. Smaller volumes were delivered to various
customers including Elizabeth Arden (Ceramide), Nordictan and Remark Groep
(for its brands Amando, Therme, Vogue and De Vergulde Hand).

At the joint venture level net sales amounted to EUR 6.4 million. At the
consolidated level this translated into net sales of EUR 3.4 million, which
is 10 times the net sales of the first half of 2013. The consolidated 2014
half-year income statement shows a net loss of EUR 3.0 million, an
improvement of EUR 0.4 million compared to the first 6 months of 2013. At
the joint venture level EBITDA-break-even was achieved for the month of
June 2014.

Outlook
Based on the current volume forecasts of the existing customers and the
firm expectation that additional customer projects will start in the next
months, the Board of Directors and Group Management are confident that at
the joint venture level break-even can be achieved in the second half of
2014.
At the consolidated level, Group Management expects the second half of 2014
to show a significant result improvement compared to the first half-year.
The extent of the improvement will depend on the sales mix in the remaining
months of the calendar year. In any case, Group Management is confident
that the operational business of the Group will be profitable going
forward.
