Very good level of orders received

Schindler recorded a 7.5% increase in orders received to CHF 2 357 million and
4.0% growth in revenue to CHF 1 980 million in the first quarter of 2013. From
the start of the new financial year, operating profit (EBIT) is only being
reported at Group level. In the first quarter of 2013, Group operating profit
(EBIT) totaled CHF 217 million, corresponding to an EBIT margin of 11.0%
(first quarter of 2012: 11.2%). Net profit totaled CHF 166 million, thus
exceeding the first quarter of the previous year by 6.4%.

Outlook for 2013

Although the first quarter of 2013 was slightly below our expectations,
Schindler continues to expect that - excluding any unforeseeable events -
revenue growth will be around 6% in local currencies and net profit will total
around CHF 740 million to CHF 790 million for the full year 2013.
