DGAP-Adhoc: Schweizer Electronic AG: SCHWEIZER lowers forecast for Fiscal Year 2012

Schweizer Electronic AG / Key word(s): Change in Forecast 05.07.2012 12:58 Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- Schramberg, July 5, 2012 - Schweizer Electronic AG updates its outlook for sales and results for fiscal year 2012 on the basis of important indicators confirming the signs for a market downswing. Following the end of the first quarter, the company already pointed at possible market weaknesses due to the current imponderabilities of the global economy and the continuing debt crises in Europe. Growth driver China also falls short of predicted growth rates. In the meantime these events have a noticeable impact on the real economy in Germany. This is substantiated by the recently lowered forecasts of semiconductor companies which are regarded as early indicators for the PCB industry. Big automotive suppliers as well as companies in industry electronics and solar business expect decreasing sales. Accordingly, the order behaviour of Schweizer Electronic AG's customers, mainly active in the segments automotive, industry and solar, increasingly follow this pattern. For the current fiscal year SCHWEIZER now expects sales of 95 to 100 million Euro. This is 5 to 10% below previous expectations. In parallel, the company expects for its division Electronic an EBIT margin of 5 % to 7 % (previously 8 % to 10 %). Investments into the division Energy will burden results with 1 % to 2 %. Previous expectations were based on 2 %. SCHWEIZER will announce further details regarding the business development of the second quarter as well as an outlook on the expected development of the fiscal year on August 24 on the occasion of publishing figures for the first half year of 2012. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- Information and Explaination of the Issuer to this News: About Schweizer: Schweizer Electronic AG is a global best-in-class technology company, manufacturing premium PCBs, innovative solutions and services for automotive, solar and industry electronics.
