Bietigheim-Bissingen, June 21, 2012 – Due to the strong and higher-than-expected demand from the automobile industry, Dürr is raising its forecast for sales revenues, incoming orders and earnings for the full year 2012. Dürr now expects a 20% increase in sales revenues year over year to around € 2.3 billion, after a previous guidance of at least € 2.0 billion. The forecast for incoming orders was raised from at least € 2.0 billion to € 2.5 billion. The EBIT margin is expected to reach 6.5% to 7.0%, as opposed to 5.5% to 6.0% previously forecast. The forecast increase is based on the assumption that the general economic conditions will not deteriorate any further.

Dürr will publish its results for the second quarter and the first six months of 2012 on August 1, 2012.
