Overview

Zurich/Switzerland – December 11, 2012 – Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, will announce on January 16, 2013 its three-month key figures of fiscal year 2012/13, ended November 30, 2012.

As announced in November 2012, Barry Callebaut completed the sale of its factory and the related business in Dijon (France) to “Chocolaterie de Bourgogne” concluding with this the final step to dispose of all its consumer activities. For comparison reasons, the Group’s previous Q1 figures for the fiscal year 2011/12 were restated as presented in the table below. Restatements mainly reflect the impact of the divestment of Dijon. The same format will be used for the presentation of the Q1 figures for the fiscal year 2012/13.
