CEO Dr. Axel Herberg Confirms the Prospects for 2008

DUSSELDORF, Germany, July 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Gerresheimer AG again increased its sales and results in the second quarter of 2008. Compared with the second quarter of 2007, sales improved by 12.8%, or 16.5% on a like-for-like exchange-rate basis, to EUR276.3m. Operating results (Adjusted EBITDA) rose by 20.2% to EUR53.6m (second quarter of 2007: EUR44.6m). In the second quarter of 2008 Gerresheimer therefore achieved an adjusted EBITDA margin of 19.4% (second quarter of 2007: 18.2%). Contributions to this gratifying development were made by the positive sales trend in the market segments of pharmaceutics and cosmetics and by the latest acquisitions. Overall, Gerresheimer therefore continued the improvement in its earnings position in the second quarter and thus the first half of 2008 as a whole. Adjusted Group results increased in the second quarter of 2008 to EUR17.6m and in the first half to EUR27.5m. This means a three-fold rise and means adjusted earnings per share of EUR0.53 in the second quarter and EUR0.82 for the first half of 2008.

"Following our record year in 2007 we have again increased our sales and profit in the first half of 2008," says Dr. Axel Herberg, CEO of Gerresheimer AG. "We expect further growth in all divisions during the course of the year and will consistently continue to focus on pharma & life science."

Just recently, Gerresheimer's discontinuation of peripheral operations such as consumer health care confirmed this concentration on pharmaceutics and life science.

Thanks to the positive development in the second quarter a marked improvement in results has also been achieved for the first half of
