Date:2/26/2008


DUSSELDORF, Germany, February 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Sales in 2007 Increased by 48.1% to EUR957.7m

- Operating Results (Adjusted EBITDA) up by 48.1% at EUR181.6m

- Proposed Dividend: EUR0.40 Per Share - CEO Dr. Axel Herberg: "For the Financial Year 2008 we Expect Further Sales Growth, With an Improved Margin."

Gerresheimer AG has finished the financial year 2007 with record figures in terms of sales and results. The company increased its sales by 48.1% to EUR957.7m (2006: EUR646.7m). Excluding acquisition and exchange-rate effects, Gerresheimer reports above-average sales growth of 8.4%. Operating results (Adjusted EBITDA) rose by 48.1% from EUR122.6m in the prior year to EUR181.6m. The company's operating strength is shown by the Adjusted EBITDA margin of 19.0%.

The debt level before the IPO and the one-off costs of the IPO are reflected in consolidated results of EUR0.8m (2006: EUR-25.0m). In the fourth quarter, however, consolidated results already totalled EUR13.9m, reaching a level which was no longer depressed by IPO costs and for the first time reflected the company's low level of debt. The adjusted consolidated results improved strongly during the financial year to EUR44.3m (2006: EUR8.7m).

"We have achieved all the targets we set ourselves for 2007 and in many cases exceeded them. For our company we look back over a very successful financial year", says Dr. Axel Herberg, CEO of Gerresheimer AG. Against the background of this brilliant business development, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board will propose to the Shareholders' Meeting that a dividend is already distributed for the financial year of the IPO, which is to amount to EUR0.40 per share.
