Au/Wädenswil, 24 October 2012 - Von Roll Holding AG published today its results
for the third quarter 2012. The weak market conditions in the major markets
Europe and Asia lead to a weak business development of Von Roll in the third
quarter 2012. Order intake declined by 11% to CHF 386 million. The industrial
group sales totaled CHF 386 million, 5.9% lower than in the third quarter 2011.

the prior year period, to CHF 235 million. Order intake by this business line,
the most important sales contributor, declined by 13.6% to CHF 224 million.
