         RECYLEX SA : RECYLEX SA: Decisions of the Lens Labour Court

Suresnes, January 15, 2013: Recylex SA (NYSE Euronext Paris: FR0000120388-RX)
takes note of today's decisions of the Lens Labour Court ("Conseil des
Prud'hommes") concerning the claims for damages lodged in 2010 by 192 former
managerial and non-managerial employees of Metaleurop Nord SAS.

The Industry  Section  of  the  Lens labour  Court  decided  to  postpone  the 
examination of  the  claims of  137  former non-managerial  employees  to  its 
hearing ("départage") of Tuesday, April 2^nd, 2013.
The Management Section of the Lens labour Court granted €50,000 as damages and
€400 as costs  to 48  unprotected former managerial  employees (employees  who 
were not staff representatives), and €30,000  as damages and €400 as costs  to 
one unprotected former managerial employee.  These amounts will be  integrated 
into the  liabilities  of Recylex  SA  payable under  its  continuation  plan. 
However, the  Lens labour  Court rejected  the claims  of 6  protected  former 
managerial employees.

The company intends to lodge an appeal against these decisions, which are  not 
provisionally  enforceable.  Provisions  for   the  full  amount  claimed   in 
connection with these proceedings (around €9.9 million) have been set aside in
the Company's financial statements.
