Double- digit growth in sales and operating income in fiscal year 2015 (group)
Arbon, 17 March 2016:Due to high demand for engineering services in 2015, EDAG -
group managed, on the basis of preliminary figures, to increase sales
significantly by 13.7% to 722 million Euro (previous year: 635 million Euro).
All segments contributed to this increase, with EE (Electrics/Electronics)
growing particularly strong.

The company increased the preliminary operating income (EBIT adjusted for PPA
and other special items) by 37% to 72.9 million Euro, again clearly higher than
2014 (53.2 million Euro). The operative margin amounted to approximately 10% and
is higher than during the previous year (8.4%).

The preliminary net income of 36.3 million Euro was lower than in 2014 (59.9
million Euro), because 2014 was considerably influenced by proceeds from sales
of property and businesses.

The board of directors plans to recommend a dividend payment of 0.75 Euro per
share at the general shareholder meeting on May 31, 2016.

The current order situation in the Engineering Service Provider - market (ESP)
indicates a further growing sales volume. At the beginning of the year 2016,
demand for ESP was still cautious, so that the company expects an increase in
sales in a range of 7- 10%, similar to market expectations of the competition.
In spite of intensified competition, the company still expects a moderate growth
of the adjusted EBIT for the year 2016 in comparison to 2015.

The final numbers and the annual report of the company and the group for the
fiscal year 2015 will be published in a press conference on 20 April, 2015.
