Interim information as of the end of 2019
Significant improvement in revenue in Q4

Zurich, February 5, 2020 - The Conzzeta Group posted net revenue of CHF
1,573.2 million in 2019. Based on stable exchange rates and adjusted for
changes in the scope of consolidation, net revenue was 4.9% lower than the
previous year. On the same basis, order intake in the Sheet Metal Processing
segment slipped by 6.5% (7.3% reported).

The revenue trend was therefore in line with the guidance for 2019 as
communicated by Conzzeta. The weaker performance in the third quarter was
largely compensated for by strong performance in the fourth quarter. Revenue
in the fourth quarter exceeded the previous year's figure in Europe and
America, but fell short of the previous year's figure in Asia. In the same
period, order intake in America and Asia was higher, but it was lower in
Europe.

Conzzeta confirms its expectation of a slightly improved EBIT margin for
2019 compared to the previous year, without the capital gain from the sale
of the Glass Processing segment, which was communicated with the half-yearly
results for 2019. On March 17, Conzzeta will publish its annual results for
2019 as well as its guidance for 2020.
