Previous Q3 restated figures due to consumer divestment

Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, will announce on July 4, 2013 its nine-month key sales figures of fiscal year 2012/13, ended May 31, 2013.

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 nine-month sales figures for the fiscal year 2011/12 were restated as presented in the table below, whereas the restatements mainly reflect the impact of the divestment of Dijon. The same format will be used for the presentation of the Q3 key sales figures for the fiscal year 2012/13.
