Family entrepreneur Wilfried Niemann and financial
expert Irene Schetelig succeed Yu-Sheng Kai and Ted Gerlach on the control committee

Bad Oeynhausen, 26 February 2013 - Balda AG today announced changes in the composition of its three-member Supervisory Board. Two Supervisory Board members, Yu-Sheng Kai and Ted Gerlach, resigned from their posts effective 28 February 2013. The Bad Oeynhausen Local Court appointed Wilfried Niemann (67) and Irene Schetelig (42) as new members of the control committee, following the Company's proposal.

Wilfried Niemann has been managing director of the family-owned enterprise Karl W. Niemann GmbH & Co KG, since 1980. The company headquartered in Preußisch Oldendorf is a supplier to the furniture industry and operates production sites in Germany and abroad. Mr. Niemann is an experienced and respected entrepreneur who is deeply rooted in the East Westphalia region. In his long-standing professional career, Mr. Niemann has held numerous offices in professional and trade associations. Since 2012, he has been Chairman of the Association of the Wood and Plastics Processing Industries for the Westphalia Lippe region.

Irene Schetelig holds a degree in business administration and has many years of experience in international listed companies. She is currently Controller and Director Product and Product Marketing at Youtailor GmbH in Berlin. Before that, she held several positions as a controller and analyst with the Finnish company Nokia Oyi, at Coca-Cola in Essen and at Adidas AG in Herzogenaurach.

Neither Wilfried Niemann nor Irene Schetelig have personal or business relationships with the Balda Group. Therefore, they meet the requirement of the German Corporate Governance Code that Supervisory Board members shall be independent.

Dr. Michael Naschke, lawyer and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Balda AG:
"With the appointment of Irene Schetelig and Wilfried Niemann, Balda has secured the services of two established personalities with different professional backgrounds. Balda takes into account the requirements of good corporate governance by incorporating a wide range of expertise and experience in its Supervisory Board. We want to continue on the successful course we have set for our company and our shareholders."
