KAP AG REVISED FORECAST FOR FISCAL YEAR 2019

Fulda, 28 June 2019 - KAP AG is today revising its revenues and earnings forecast for the 2019 financial year in light of current extraordinary developments and a changed view on the economic outlook. The reason for the updated forecast was a fire damage suffered at the Reichenbach site which leads to a negative impact on revenues and earnings in the surface technologies segment. At the same time, against the background of identified irregularities in the valuation of inventories, write-downs in the engineered products segment are necessary. The amount of these write-downs can not yet be precisely determined and requires further investigation. In addition, the current economic outlook leads to a reduced demand from customers. Based on more reliable information on the impacts of individual effects, the Executive Board plans to publish an updated forecast at the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2019.
