Hamburg, 24 January 2013. The wine trading group Hawesko Holding AG (HAW GR,
HAWG.DE, DE0006042708) announced today that, based on its preliminary results
for the fiscal year just completed (1 January to 31 December 2012), a sales
increase of 9% to € 449 million and an EBIT on the order of € 25.9 million
(2011: € 26.7 million) are expected. Previously, the Hawesko management board
had anticipated an increase in sales of approximately 10% and a consolidated
EBIT on the order of €28.5 million. Due to a positive valuation effect in the
financial result and a correspondingly lower tax rate, the results before and
after taxes will, on the other hand, be higher than expected. Consolidated
earnings after deductions for taxes and non-controlling interests are
currently expected to be in the range of €20.3million and approximately
€2.26 per share (previous year: € 17.9 million or € 1.99 per share).

For 2013, the management board anticipates a further increase in sales and a
higher EBIT compared to 2012.
