Barry Callebaut AG, the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality
cocoa and chocolate products, will announce on January 16, 2013 its
three-month key figures of fiscal year 2012/13, ended November 30,
2012. 
As announced in November 2012, Barry Callebaut completed the sale of
its factory
and the related business in Dijon (France) to
"Chocolaterie de Bourgogne" concluding with this the final step to
dispose of all its consumer activities.
For comparison reasons, the
Group's previous Q1 figures for the fiscal year 2011/12 were restated
as presented in the table below.  Restatements mainly reflect the
impact of the divestment of Dijon. The same format will be used
for
the presentation of the Q1 figures for the fiscal year
2012/13.
