Previous year's restated figures due to the divestiture of the Consumer Products business

Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, will announce on Nov 10, 2011 its full-year sales figures of fiscal year 2010/11, ended August 31, 2011.

As announced in July 2011, Barry Callebaut has sold its European Consumer Products business (Stollwerck) to the Belgian Baronie Group. Accordingly, the company will present its full-year result figures for the continuing operations.

For comparison reasons, the Group’s previous full-year result figures (fiscal year 2009/10) have been restated and are presented in the table below. The same format will be used for the presentation of the full-year results of fiscal year 2010/11 to be released on November 10, 2011, at 7:00 a.m. CET.
