  Getinge Announces Preliminary Results for Third Quarter 2013

Business Wire

GETINGE, Sweden -- October 8, 2013

RegulatoryNews:

Getinge’s consolidated profit before tax for the third quarter 2013 is
expected to amount to 560-570 MSEK, which materially deviates from the
expectations indicated by the market consensus estimate.

The weaker earnings statement is primarily attributable to the following
factors:

- unfavorable product mix within the Critical Care division

- time delay in cost synergies related to the TSS acquisition

- the US Medical Device Tax and negative exchange-rate effects

For the full year, the organic volume growth is still expected to exceed last
year and amount to approximately 3-4 %. Profit before tax for the full year is
estimated to total at 3000 – 3200 MSEK when adjusted for restructuring
expenses and other nonrecurring expenses.

This announcement will be followed by a conference call at 10.00 AM CET today,
hosted by Johan Malmquist, CEO Getinge Group and Ulf Grunander, CFO Getinge
Group.

Getinge will issue its full Q3 report for 2013 on October 15th at 1:00 PM CET.
