Further valuation adjustments in discontinued operations Personnel change at IWKA Aktiengesellschaft Executive Board level

The further restructuring of the portfolio announced earlier will require a valuation adjustment of over EUR 50 million on June 30, 2006, which will cause a substantial loss in the first half of 2006. Companies that do not meet the targeted return on investment targets were reclassified as discontinued operations effective June 30, 2006 and will be sold. The aforementioned valuation adjustments will result from the planned sales of ARO-Schweisszangen-Group (Automotive Division), GSN Maschinen-Anlagen-Service GmbH (Automotive), HASSIA-Redatron GmbH (Packaging) and the Boehringer Group, which is already part of discontinued operations.
