PRESS RELEASE: Schweizer Electronic AG: AGM

Schweizer Electronic AG / AGM/EGM 02.07.2010 17:12 Dissemination of a Corporate News, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer / publisher is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shareholders' Meeting of Schweizer Electronic AG in Schramberg on 02/07/2010 Around 200 shareholders and guests attended this year's Shareholders' Meeting of Schweizer Electronic AG. Approximately 78% of the stock capital were represented. All resolutions proposed by the Management were adopted unanimously or by a large majority of votes. The Chairman of the Management Board, Dr. Marc Schweizer, first elaborated on the development in the crisis year 2009 and the measures taken, in particular, the strategic alliance with Meiko Electronics Ltd., as an important milestone in the company's history. Then, Marc Bunz, Director of Finance, explained the financial ratios. In 2009, sales amounted to EUR 65.8m, remaining 20% below previous year levels of EUR 81.8m. This decline can be traced back to an extremely weak 1st half of 2009 resulting from the financial and economic crunch. Accordingly, the EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) was EUR 3.4m (previous year: EUR -0.3m). However, Schweizer Electronic achieved an impressive turnaround as of mid-2009. The inflow of orders, which had amounted to only EUR 12.3m during the first six months, increased by 475% to EUR 70.7m during the 2nd half of the year. Sales revenues improved from EUR 28.2m during the first six months to EUR 37.6m during the second half, representing a 33% increase. Thus, the EBIT, which had been EUR -5.7m as per 30/06/2009, increased to as much as EUR +2.3m during the time from July to December 2009. In his report on the current year, Dr. Schweizer explained, that the demand for the company's products would continue to be at high levels. The most obvious impetus was given by the solar and the automotive industries. The Management Board was optimistic as regards the business development and expected a sales volume of EUR 90 to EUR 100 million and an EBIT margin of more than 8% for the whole year, even when taking material price increases and the historically weak season during the 4th quarter into account. Schweizer Electronic was able to win additional market shares, and currently was the number 3 PCB manufacturer in Europe. This development also benefited the company's stock price, which increased from less than EUR 2 in spring 2009 to currently more than EUR 19. In summary, Schweizer Electronic was beginning the second half of the business year quite confidently, but certainly also with respect. But we know: we are on the right track, Dr. Schweizer finally said. The presentation shown by the Management Board at the Shareholders' Meeting has been published at www.schweizerelectronic.ag section 'Investor Relations / Shareholders' meeting'. Schweizer Electronic AG (WKN 515623) is one of the Top 3 PCB manufacturers in Europe with recognized technology and consulting expertise in the field of automobile, solar and industrial electronics.
