BAVARIA Industriekapital AG has finished the financial year of 2007
with good results. The industrial holding has been able to increase
its provisional annual net income by approx. 70 %, i.e. from ¤13.8m
last year to ¤23.2m this year. This is equivalent to an income of ¤
3.50 per share. The financial assets have increased from ¤19.2m to
¤28.5m, despite a profit distribution of ¤6.6m in May 2007 and stock
repurchases amounting to approx. ¤1.9m until the end of the year.

BAVARIA has thus repeated and reconfirmed its successful development
after it had already achieved very good results last year. CEO Reimar
Scholz explains: "The business year of 2007 has taken an extremely
positive turn for BAVARIA and has been characterized by successful
exits and new acquisitions. The sale of the Hamba Group in October
2007 after a promising reorganization has considerably contributed to
this success and demonstrated once again that we are able to lead
companies out of a difficult situation back into the profit zone. It
would appear that the concern is continuing its growth mainly by new
acquisitions."

The publication of the concern's financial figures, originally
scheduled also for April 7, 2008, will be put off until end-April,
together with the publication of the planned dividends. This is due
to delayed financial statements from some of the foreign
subsidiaries.

BAVARIA Industriekapital AG's 2006 group revenues were EUR 333
million, with an EBITDA of EUR 51 million. The company is listed in
the Entry Standard on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN
DE0002605557). Headquartered in Munich, this industrial group invests
in companies with strong market positions and a potential to improve
profits.
