Bad Oeynhausen (euro adhoc) – New Balda-CEO is optimistic for 2011

Rainer Mohr expects figures in the black in the operating business
‘The Balda-Group will generate a positive operating result in the fiscal year
2011.’ Rainer Mohr, the new Director of the Board is convinced of this. The
Supervisory Board and Board of Directors have a clear strategy and agreement on
defined measures for every segment of the Group. New leadership in MobileCom
segments in China and the Electronic Products segment in Malaysia have
introduced measures for further restructuring. By the end of the first half-year
Mohr will take further incisive decisions if necessary.

‘If we cannot turn around the MobileCom business, we are ready for a clean
break’, says Mohr. The Electronic Products segment has already made progress in
the second half-year of 2010. In addition it possesses promising innovative
products. Balda Medical is developing well too. Located in Germany, in Bad

and will show a significant growth in turnover and earnings. For the forecast
strategic growth in the Medical segment the new Balda-CEO is optimistic: ‘We are
on target. I expect a final decision by the end of the first half-year.’ ‘ We
have done our homework. Particularly in China we will continue to work with high
