Interroll records strong growth in FY 2012

The Interroll Group saw net sales rise by an encouraging 15.6% in local
currency and by 13.0% in consolidated currency in the 2012 financial year,
taking the total figure to CHF 307.2 million (2011: CHF 271.9 million).
Compared to the previous year, order intake increased by 7.2% in local
currency. Expressed in consolidated currency, order intake expanded by 4.8% to
CHF 302.6 million (2011: CHF 288.7 million). Earnings before interest and
taxes are expected to be up by around 20% to 25% year on year, while net
profit is likely to grow by approx. 5% to 10%. Furthermore, Interroll
generated strong operating cash flow in the financial year just ended.

This encouraging performance was underpinned by all product groups. Interroll
captured an above-average share of the market in the highly promising segment
of 24 volt roller conveyor technology, for instance. Elsewhere, the "Conveyors
& Sorters" and "Pallet & Carton Flow" product areas also exceeded
expectations. Among the more sizeable projects covered by these two areas were
additional sorters supplied to China Post and Amazon as well as dynamic
storage solutions for Procter & Gamble and Red Bull. Interroll recorded
double-digit growth in Asia, managing to expand by 24% in China alone.
Excluding the major project for Canada Post in 2011, net sales attributable to
North America remained stable year on year.

Benefiting from its solid financial base, Interroll was able to invest heavily
in strategic projects aimed at future growth and profitability. Within this
context, the company initiated a development project for a new product
platform, made investments in the Chinese and US markets, and continued with
its global rollout of SAP.

The Group's annual results for the financial year 2012 are to be presented at
the media and analysts' conference in Zurich on 22 March 2013.
