For the preliminary consolidated annual figures 2012 reference is made to  the 
appendix of this  press release. The  preliminary results in  2012 show a  net 
loss of  226 million  Euro.  In these  preliminary  results among  others  the 
effects have  been  included  of  a  later  closing  date  and  the  connected 
progressive insights. Also an appropriate realistic approach has been used  in 
the application of our accounting  principles. The preliminary annual  figures 
for 2012 will be discussed with our lenders. These discussions are focused  on 
obtaining a definite waiver as a logical continuation on the earlier concluded
continuation agreement. After the finalization of the waiver process, expected
early June  2013,  the annual  accounts  audited  by the  accountant  will  be 

Adjustment figures 2011
For the adjusted figures for 2011 and the adjusted opening balance sheet  2011 
reference is made to the appendix  of this press release. The annual  accounts

23, 2013. The net result of 2011  has been adjusted by 54,6 million Euro.  The 
correction to the shareholders equity on the opening balance sheet amounts  to 
54,7 million Euro. In regards to the  annual accounts 2011, the in art.  2:362 
section 6 Dutch Civil  Code (BW) intended  announcements and auditor's  report 
will be deposited.

Poland and Germany
The investigations  in  Poland  and  Germany  are  in  the  process  of  being 
finalized. As announced earlier, the company will publish the final report  in 
early June 2013. In this report  the findings of these investigations will  be 
presented. The write-offs in Poland and  Germany amount, as reported on  April 
23 2013, to 370 million Euro (pre-tax).

Rights issue
On February  27,  2013  Imtech  announced  the  intention  to  strengthen  its 
shareholders' equity with a rights issue of 500 million Euro. The proceeds  of 
the issue  will, after  the deduction  of costs,  be fully  utilized for  debt 
reduction, resulting in a reinforcement of Imtech's capital structure. A  more 
extensive explanation of  the rights issue  is included in  the agenda of  the 
Annual General  Meeting  of shareholders,  published  on the  company  website 
( The decision necessary to  execute the rights issue will  be 
submitted to the Annual General Meeting of shareholders on June 28, 2013.  The 
announced rights issue is expected to be completed this summer.
