EANS-Adhoc: Difficult start for Jetter´s new fiscal year - adhoc announcement §15 WpHG

ad-hoc disclosure pursuant to section 15 of the WpHG transmitted by euro adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.


Ludwigsburg, 04 August 2009. Jetter AG (ISIN DE0006264005) has closed the first fiscal quarter at 30 June 2009 with a 1.2 Mio. EUR loss.

Compared to the first quarter of the previous year, the best in Jetter history so far, sales dropped by 47 % to 7 Mio. EUR, even less than the quarter before. Costs were lower, too, yet not sufficiently so to compensate for the missing turnover. Before interest and tax, Jetter suffered a loss of 1.2 Mio. EUR (previous year: 1.6 Mio. EUR profit). Consolidated loss was also 1.2 Mio. EUR, or .37 EUR/share (previous year: profit of 1.5 Mio. EUR or .48 EUR/share).

For the second quarter, an improvement can be observed on the sales front. Cost saving measures already implemented, above all short-time work, should stabilise the bottom line. Management maintains the objective to avoid significant cash-burn in the fiscal year. For the following year, management expects marked improvements of sales and result, based on existing new orders in the mobile automation area.

The complete interim report will be published on 12 August 2009 and will be available at the websites of Jetter (http://www.jetter.de) and Deutsche Börse (http://deutsche-boerse.com).
