IFCO Systems Projects Pro Forma Revenue Growth for Continuing
Operations of 8.2% in Fiscal 2000.

Amsterdam, June 26, 2001 - IFCO Systems N.V. ("IFCO Systems", "IFCO"
or the "Company"), a global leader in round-trip logistic systems and
services announced its latest estimates for full year 2000 and first
quarter 2001 results.

Fiscal 2000


For the year ended, December 31, 2000, the company expects to report
$372.2 million compared to $154.7 million in 1999 under US GAAP. The
revenue growth of 140.6% primarily reflects the acquisition of PALEX
and pallet recycling businesses in 2000.

For the same period, the company estimates a net loss of $110.4
million. The majority (approximately 90%) of the projected loss was
due to several non recurring items, including the write down of
goodwill on the pallet manufacturing businesses currently in the
process of being divested and to restructuring parts of the business.
Of the $110.4 million loss, $99.6 million was non-recurring / non
operating in nature and $83.7 million were non-cash items. Net loss
in 1999 was $13.9 million.

Pro Forma

For purposes of clarity, the following numbers are pro forma for the
merger with PALEX and the acquisitions completed during 2000, assume
these transactions occurred on the first day of fiscal 2000, and are
compared against pro forma results for 1999.

Pro forma revenue from continuing operations during 2000 is expected
to increase 8.2% to $494.3 million compared to $456.7 million in
1999. Under constant exchange rate conditions, revenues would have
grown by 14.0%. The difference was due to the decline in exchange
rates between the Euro versus the $.

Total revenues, including discontinued operations, is estimated to be
$664.0 million.

Projected EBITDA for continuing operations totaled $67.8 million in
fiscal 2000 compared to $79.5 million, representing a 14.7% decline.
Under constant exchange rate conditions, EBITDA would have decreased
by 7.7%.

Total EBITDA, including discontinued operations is expected to amount
to $81.0 million.

Debt totaled $362.6 million as of December 31, 2000. IFCO was in
compliance with all of its amended financial covenants as of December
31, 2000.

Commenting on the annual results Karl Pohler, CEO of IFCO Systems

"During the six months since I assumed the role of Chief Executive
Officer, we have analyzed the Company and implemented projects to
stabilize its businesses. Since the end of January 2001 our debt
level has not changed significantly, we are self funding our
operations and strongly refocused on the core operations of the
business. The projects in place should provide the Company with a
platform to foster future profitable growth."

The balance sheet, income and cash flow statement are audited.
However the financial statements, including the notes thereto and
management`s discussion and analysis (MDA), are subject to final
review by the Professional Standards Group of Arthur Andersen. In
addition, the Company`s former independent auditors must complete a
review of the Company`s SEC filing as a precondition to its
consenting to the inclusion of its audit reports in such filing. Both
these reviews are expected to be complete, and the final audit
opinion is expected to be included, with the filing of the Company`s
annual financial statements with SMAX and NASDAQ on June 30, 2001.
