The development of sales in the USA was encouraging as well. In fact, during
the most recent completed month of April 2012, we achieved the highest
monthly sales total in the USA since the end of the business relationship
with Staples/Corporate Express. We are confident that this trend will
continue and we will overall achieve the full year 2012 planned sales of
between Euro 86 - 90 million. Notwithstanding the fact that during the
second half of 2012 we forecast with a lower overall gross margin, we now
strive for full year 2012 earnings before tax of Euro 6.0 million.
The complete interim report for the first three months of 2012 will be
available following the Supervisory Board Meeting on May 16, 2012 at Turbon
