*AlzChem Group AG posts sales and earnings for the* *first nine months of
2019 at previous year's level*

*Trostberg, November 14, 2019* - AlzChem Group AG, a vertically integrated
specialty chemicals supplier with a leading market position in selected
niche markets, was able to confirm the previous year's level in both sales
and earnings in the first nine months of 2019. Group sales in the reporting
period amounted to EUR 287.7 million (9M 2018: EUR 287.2 million). The third
quarter made a significant contribution with a sales increase of 8.1% to EUR
99.4 million. Over the nine-month period, a slight decline in sales in the
Specialty Chemicals segment (-4.9%) was offset by a significant increase in
sales in the Basics & Intermediates segment (+7.5%). The highlight of the
third quarter of 2019 was the official commissioning of the new Creamino(R)
plant at the Trostberg site in mid-September. Production capacity, which has
tripled to around 21,000 tons, is now gradually being utilized in line with
expected market growth.

On the earnings side, AlzChem successfully passed on significant cost
increases (including for raw materials and personnel) through price
adjustments (+3.0%). In addition, the product portfolio was further
developed towards more complex and thus more high-priced products. Overall,
AlzChem achieved earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortization (EBITDA) of EUR 41.4 million (9M 2018: EUR 41.3 million),
equivalent to an EBITDA margin of 14.4% (9M 2018: 14.4%). Consolidated net
income for the period amounted to EUR 17.0 million, compared with EUR 20.4
million in the previous year. This was due to high extraordinary additions
to pension provisions due to sharply falling interest rates.

For 2019 as a whole, AlzChem is forecasting consolidated sales of between
EUR 375.0 million and EUR 385.0 million (2018: EUR 375.2 million) and
adjusted EBITDA of between EUR 46.5 million and EUR 51.9 million (2018: EUR
49.4 million).
