  • 3. Letter to the shareholdersLetter to the shareholdersDear shareholders,Balda has carried out its repeatedly advertised intention (most recently in the ad-hoc announcement of 4 August 2011) to disposeof its MobileCom segment and has sold it by way of a management buy out (MBO). The segment had already been reported inthe 2011 half-year report under “discontinued operations”. The parties have on October 31 with the approval of the BaldaSupervisory Board closed the contracts of sale.With this Balda has disposed of its activities in the mobile phone business in China. The buyer is Ample Gain Enterprises Limited(AGE). The Bad Oeynhausen Group is disposing of its companies in Beijing (BSBJ and BTO Technologies) and Suzhou (BSSU)including the rights to properties, buildings and machine park. It is expected that the closing will take place in November 2011.The parties have agreed not to disclose the details of the transaction such as the conditions and the purchase price. The saleends Balda’s of late loss-making involvement due to the challenging market conditions in the MobileCom segment in China. TheGroup is therefore freeing resources to focus on higher-margin business divisions such as the Medical division. At the same timeBalda opens up a new chapter in its equity story. Investments in existing and potentially new business divisions may be considered.How has the Balda Group performed? In the first nine months of 2011 your company achieved sales revenue of 44.4 millioneuros in its continued business divisions. This is a slight fall of 2.1 million euros or 4.5 percent compared to the previous year. Inthe third quarter earnings totalled 15.4 million euros. They were therefore around 3.0 million euros below the same period of theprevious year. The fall in sales revenue was attributable to developments in the Electronic Products segment with losses due tosupply shortages from Japan due to the natural disaster. At the same time project delays had a negative impact on business per-formance. Delays in billing for tools had a negative impact on sales as at the end of the quarter in the Medical segment. Thecustomers will be billed in the current quarter.Earnings have fallen in the first nine months. The Group’s EBIT after nine months was 0.1 million euros following 1.3 million eurosin the previous year. The EBIT in the third quarter was minus 1.0 million euros following plus 0.7 million euros in the previousyear. Despite the comparatively poor earnings after nine months, we are confident that our performance will be positive as plan-ned in the continued business divisions at the year-end.What is the current situation regarding the acquisition envisaged by the Board of Directors? The Supervisory Board has not yet takena stand on the Board of Directors’ proposal. The Supervisory Board wanted to see the sale of the China segment completed before-hand. On the other hand it needs to be verified whether the company which had been favoured and examined is still for purchase.The Board of Directors will place this item back on the agenda of the Supervisory Board after the disposal of the MobileCom seg-ment.How will your company close the 2011 financial year? We are expecting the Group’s sales revenue to be at the lower end of theforecast of around 70 million euros with a slightly positive EBIT for the continued business divisions.Dear shareholders, I assure you that your Board of Directors still stands by the statements made at the Annual General Meetingon May 27, 2011 and is doing everything possible to accomplish them at the best.Rainer Mohr(Sole Member of the Board of Directors) 3
  • 4. Quarterly Report III/2011 Notes to the changed structure of the quarterly report Balda AG has carried out its repeatedly advertised intention (most recently in the ad-hoc announcement of 4 August 2011) to dispose of the MobileCom segment and has sold it by way of a management buy out (MBO) on 31 October 2011. The seg- ment had already been reported in the 2011 half-year report as a “discontinued business division”. In the report for the third quarter of 2011 the Balda Group structures its continued business divisions into just three segments: Medical Electronic Products Central Services Continued and discontinued business divisions The following key figures presented for the first nine months of 2011 are individual indications of the values of the continued business divisions. The data for the first nine months of 2010 presented in this report does not concur, in terms of the compo- sition of the continued business divisions, with the values provided in the report for the third quarter of 2010. In the interim report issued on the 30 September 2010 the MobileCom segment is still part of the continued business divi- sions. This interim report is based for the continued business divisions primarily on the results of the following operating com- panies: Balda Medical GmbH & Co. KG Balda Solutions Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. Balda Solutions USA Inc. The comments to the key figures in the following quarterly report are always related only to the continued business divisions. Where comments are made in relation to the discontinued business divisions, these are expressly highlighted. This report accordingly shows adjusted comparison figures where necessary.4
  • 5. Quarterly Report III/2011Interim management reportMacroeconomic developmentEconomic growth in the global economy slowsEconomic growth slowed in the third quarter of 2011. Both industrialised and emerging countries are affected. For the sevenlargest industrialised countries (G7), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is expectinggrowth of around 1.6 percent in the period under review. In particular the poor economic data from the USA and Europe aredeepening concerns about the debt crisis in the industrialised countries. The financial crisis affecting countries and banks isworsening. The financial market players, informed among other things by the assessments of rating agencies, are increasin-gly losing confidence in the debt capacity of the European banks and individual countries. This applies in particular for coun-tries whose austerity programmes and economic data remain well below expectations. This situation resulted in the periodunder review in renewed uncertainty in the financial markets.EurozoneThe uncertainties associated with the European debt crisis also resulted in a slowdown in economic growth in the eurozonein the period under review. The planned austerity measures are likely to continue to put a brake on growth in the next fewquarters unless new subsidy packages are approved. According to Eurostat, gross domestic product rose by 1.6 percent inthe second quarter of 2011 compared to the same period of the previous year. This was an increase of 0.2 percent on thefirst quarter of 2011. Eurostat also estimates that the annual inflation rate was 2.5 percent in EMU states in August 2011.The unemployment rate in the eurozone was 10.0 percent in August 2011 and therefore unchanged from the previousmonth.GermanyGrowth slowed again in Germany in the second quarter of 2011. According to estimates by the Federal Statistical Office(Destatis), Germany’s GDP rose slightly during the second quarter of 2011 by 0.1 percent compared to 1.5 percent in thefirst quarter. The Ifo Business Climate Index is also predicting a gloomy economic climate. Companies expectations withregard to their business performance in the coming half year have fallen. During the course of 2011 the index has fallen bymore than 7 points and was 106.4 points in October.In spite of the signs that the economic recovery has passed its high point and the significant slowdown in economic growth,surprisingly the situation in Germany’s employment market improved in September 2011. The unemployment rate fell at theend of the third quarter to 6.6 percent. One year ago it was 7.2 percent.USAIn the USA the economy has noticeably slumped. GDP was below what had been forecasted in the second quarter withgrowth of only 1.3 percent. Weak private consumption and increased public spending had a negative impact. If politicians inthe USA do not manage to find a convincing solution for the debt problems, there is a risk that the economic downturn willaccelerate. The USA’s trade balance deficit was around 134.2 billion US dollars in August 2011, well above the previousmonth’s figure of around 90 billion euros. Household incomes fell in August for the first time since the autumn of 2009. Theunemployment rate in the USA remained at 9.1 percent in August 2011. The inflation rate was around 3.8 percent in thesame period. 5
  • 6. Quarterly Report III/2011 Sector situation Medical Germanys medical technology sector showed itself to be independent of economic trends in the first half of 2011. In spite of volatile markets worldwide, demand for German medical products remains stable. According to the trade association SPEC- TARIS, German medical technology manufacturers recorded sales revenue of more than ten billion euros in the first six months of 2011, an increase of around 10 percent compared to 2010. Above all increased orders from abroad contributed to the boom. According to SPECTARIS, international business rose in the first half of 2011 by more than 13 percent. In particular exports to China and the USA rose at the start of the year by 35 per- cent and 18 percent respectively. The increase in domestic demand was comparatively moderate at around 4 percent. Electronic Products The global demand for communications and consumer electronics continues to rise despite the worrying financial situation in particular in Europe and the USA. The reason for the positive trend is the high demand in emerging countries. According to experts, sales of electronic products in the emerging BRIC countries should increase by more than 10 percent in 2011. The global high-tech market will grow by around 4 percent in 2011 according to the industry association BITKOM. According to the experts of BITKOM, German manufacturers of high-tech products can expect an increase in sales in the third quarter of 2011 compared to the same period of the previous year. The business climate in the domestic electronics industry improved again in the third quarter of 2011. The BITKOM index rose by eleven points to 63 points. Market observers attribute the positive development to new technologies and high-performance end devices. Various software applications are also attracting more and more consumers. Business development Group earnings position The Balda Group started its search in the second quarter of 2011 for a joint venture partner and investor for the companies in the MobileCom segment. The segment has been reported as a discontinued business division since the second quarter of 2011. The factors for this decision are presented extensively in the 2011 half-year report. The manufacturing segments, Medical and Electronic Products, remain in the Balda Group’s continued business divisions. Their business performance is in line with their targets. Group earnings position in the continued business divisions In the first nine months of the current financial year the Group achieved sales revenue of around 44.4 million euros in its continued business divisions. This is a fall of 2.1 million euros or around 4.5 percent compared to the first nine months of 2010. With sales of 15.4 million euros, the Group generated around 3.0 million euros less in the third quarter than in the same period for 2010. The Electronic Products segment is responsible for this Group sales January to September performance. Electronic Products has been affected by in mio. euros the crisis in Japan and project delays. Delays in billing 2011 44.4 for tools had a negative impact on the Medical segment’s 2010 46.5 sales in the third quarter of 2011. 0 15 30 456
  • 7. Quarterly Report III/2011The Balda Group reports an EBIT of 0.1 million euros in the first nine months for its continued business divisions (same peri-od of the previous year: 1.3 million euros). In the third quarter from July to September the Group’s EBIT was minus 1.0 mil-lion euros (same period of the previous year: plus 0.7 million euros). The Group’s financial earnings in the third quarter of2011 were 5.6 million euros. In the same period of the previous year this item totalled around 11.9 million euros. The EBT isat 5.7 million euros in the period under review around 7.6 million euros below the previous year’s figure of 13.3 millioneuros.After offsetting taxes on income and earnings of 0.9 million euros (same period for the previous year: tax revenue of 0.4 mil-lion euros), the profit achieved in the Balda Groups continued business divisions after nine months in the current financialyear was 6.6 million euros following 13.6 million euros in the same period of the previous year.Sales and earnings up in the Medical segmentThe Medical segment’s sales rose significantly in the first nine months of 2011 to 24.4 million euros following 20.4 millioneuros in the same period of the previous year. Business is growing in line with targets in 2011. Delays in billing for tools hada negative impact on the segment’s sales in the third quarter of 2011. They will be billed in the fourth quarter of 2011. Thesegment’s EBT was at 1.7 million euros after the first nine months slightly above the previous years level of 1.6 millioneuros. Earnings before taxes (EBT) totalled 1.6 million euros (previous year: 1.4 million euros). The Medical division is perfor-ming in line with expectations. The trend is in the right direction.Electronic Products segment suffering from supply shortages from JapanSales revenue in the Electronic Products segment totalled around 20.0 million euros as of 30 September 2011 following26.1 million euros in the same period of the previous year. This development is partly due to the consequences of the nucle-ar disaster in Japan. Bottlenecks in the supply of electronics components from Japan to be built into electronic devices resul-ted in production stops in Malaysia. This had a negative impact on the segment’s order volume. At the same time postpone-ments of orders resulted in a fall in sales revenue in the period under review.The segment’s EBIT was minus 1.5 million euros (previous year: minus 2.6 million euros). In the second and third quarterthe segment achieved a break-even result. Electronic Products’ EBT in the period under review was minus 1.4 million euros(previous year: minus 2.5 million euros). The trend of business development in the segment is positive.Central Services segmentThe earnings generated by the Central Services segment relate to holding and financing and leasing services with the proper-ty in Bad Oeynhausen and to development services in the Group’s subsidiary in the USA. The financial earnings also includecurrency gains from internal financing.The overall operating performance of the Central Services segment stood at 0.7 million euros as of 30 September 2011. TheEBIT was 0.1 million euros after the first nine months (previous year: 3.0 million euros). The EBT was 5.7 million euros com-pared to 15.0 million euros in the previous year. The fall is primarily due to the loss of earnings from associated companies.The earnings of associated companies relating to the shareholding in TPK are no longer reported as financial assets after theloss of significant influence and the change in the valuation method in October 2010. In the same period for the previousyear a figure of 14.3 million Euros was reported here. On the other hand, included in the EBT are the other financial ear-nings of 5.2 million euros with currency gains from internal financing. These currency gains essentially relate to a loan gran-ted in the 2009 financial year by Balda Investments Singapore (BIS) to Balda AG in US dollars for the repayment of bank lia-bilities. The gains result from the difference in currency exchange rates between US dollars and euros as calculated on thedate of exchange. 7
  • 8. Quarterly Report III/2011 Discontinued business divisions Segment sales from January to September The discontinued business divisions comprise the for- in mio. euros = 2011 = 2010 mer segment of MobileCom. The segment recorded a Medical 24.4 loss for the period of 35.0 million euros in the period 20.4 under review following a loss of 6.7 million euros in the Electronic 20.0 Products 26.1 same period of the previous year. The negative perfor- mance is primarily the result of special write-downs to Central 0.7 Services 0.1 the anticipated sale price. 0 10 20 30 Asset position The Balda Group reports as of the end of the third quarter of 2011 a balance sheet total of 661.0 million euros (31 December 2010: 810.5 million euros). The fall of 149.5 million euros is primarily attributable to the decline in the value of the TPK holding in financial assets. Non-current assets fell as of 30 September 2011 by Balda Group / Balance Sheet 278.9 million euros to 432.7 million euros (31 De- in mio. euros cember 2010: 711.7 million euros). This fall is the result 30.09.2011 661.0 of the aforementioned decline in the value of the TPK holding and the reclassification of the portion of the sha- 31.12.2010 810.5 res held for sale as current assets. TPK’s share price fell from 670 Taiwanese dollars on 31 December 2010 to 0 300 600 900 577 Taiwanese dollars on the on 30 September 2011. In addition to this, the write-down and reclassification of non-current assets in the MobileCom segment resulted in a further reduction. The net working capital of the continued business divisions, i.e. the current assets (not including liquid assets) less the cur- rent liabilities (not including bank liabilities) decreased in the period under review. At the end of the third quarter net working capital totalled 5.5 million euros (2010 balance sheet date: 14.8 million euros). Equity fell as of 30 September 2011 to 614.2 million Balda Group / Equity ratio in percent euros (2010 balance sheet date: 749.7 million euros). (in percent) The Group’s earnings, the revaluation of the TPK shares 30.09.2011 92.9 and currency translation differences were primarily responsible for the fall of 135.5 million euros. The equity 31.12.2010 92.5 ratio as of 30 September 2011 was almost unchanged at 92.9 percent (31 December 2010: 92.5 percent). 0 25 50 75 100 Further comments on the individual items in the balance sheet as of 30 September 2011 are provided in the comments on page 18 in the "condensed notes". Financial position The cash flow statement is prepared in accordance with IFRS for the Group, including the discontinued business divisions. The figures for the discontinued business divisions are shown separately in the table in the appendix as an “of which” figure. The inflow of funds from ongoing business activities in the Balda Group totalled 2.6 million euros in the first nine months of 2011. In the same period of the previous year the Group recorded an outflow of funds of 11.6 million Euros. The reason for the increase in the period under review was the reduction in the working capital.8
  • 9. Quarterly Report III/2011The Balda Group spent 3.3 million euros on investment activity in the period under review (previous year: 10.0 million euros). Inthe same period of the previous year the cash flow from investment activities was influenced by payments relating to the saleof shares in Group companies (12.1 million euros) and dividend inflows (6.9 million euros).In the first nine months of 2011, in particular the repayment of credit lines in the MobileCom segment in the amount of 9.0million euros resulted in an outflow of funds from financing activities. In the previous year, the utilisation of credit lines forfinancing activities resulted in an inflow of funds of 9.8 million euros.The Groups cash and cash equivalents totalled as of the end of September 38.7 million euros (30 September 2010: 55.3million euros). Cash and cash equivalents relating to the continued business divisions totalled 35.8 million euros.Due to its continued comfortable level of cash and cash equivalents, Balda is able to finance the operational business in2011 from its own resources.Significant events in the third quarterChanges in the shareholder structureDuring the course of the third quarter of 2011 there were changes in the shareholder structure of Balda AG.On 4 August 2011 the major shareholder Octavian Special Masterfund increased its interest in Balda AG to 5.22 percent(3,076,810 voting rights out of a total of 58,890,636 voting rights).TPK dividend in kindOn 29 August 2011, TPK has distributed a dividend in kind of shares on the basis of the decision made at the annual gene-real meeting on 9 June 2011.

This is an increase of 82 employeescompared to 30 June 2011, at which time 1,025 people 0 500 1,000 1,500were employed. The increase is mainly attributable to newappointments in the Electronic Products segment. There has also been a slight increase in the number of employees in theMedical segment in the period under review.The Group’s personnel expenses ratio was almost unchanged as of 30 September 2011 and was 26.2 percent (30 June2011: 25.7 percent).Since the second quarter of the current financial year the Personnel expenses ratioMobileCom segment has been a discontinued business 30.9.2011 26.2 %division and employed as of 30 September 2011 a total of350 people (30 June 2011: 583 people) At the end of 30.6.2011 25.7 %December 2010 the factories in China still employed1,344 people. 0 10 20 30Medical recorded a slight increase. The segment employed 218 people in Germany in the period under review following 213people as of the end of the second quarter of 2011. The segment’s positive business performance is the reason for the slightincrease in the number of employees.As of 30 September 2011 the Electronic Products segment employed a total of 869 people. As of 30 June 2011, 789 peoplewere still employed in the production plants in Malaysia. The increase of 80 employees or around 10 percent was the resultof temporary employees being taken on.With 20 employees, the number employed in the Central Services segment remained below the level of the second quarterof 2011. On the 30 September 2011 23 people were employed in the holding companies and the development centre in theUSA.Events after the balance sheet dateDisposal of shares in the MobileCom segmentBalda has carried out its repeatedly advertised intention (most recently in the ad-hoc announcement of 4 August 2011) to disposeof its MobileCom segment and has sold it by way of a management buy out (MBO). The segment had already been reported inthe 2011 half-year report under “discontinued operations”. The parties have on October 31 with the approval of the BaldaSupervisory Board closed the contracts of sale.With this Balda has disposed of its activities in the mobile phone business in China. The buyer is Ample Gain Enterprises Limited(AGE). The Bad Oeynhausen Group is disposing of its companies in Beijing (BSBJ and BTO Technologies) and Suzhou (BSSU) 11
  • 12. Quarterly Report III/2011 including the rights to properties, buildings and machine park. It is expected that the closing will take place in November 2011. The parties have agreed not to disclose the details of the transaction such as the conditions and the purchase price. The sale ends Balda’s of late loss-making involvement due to the challenging market conditions in the MobileCom segment in China. The Group is therefore freeing resources to focus on higher-margin business divisions such as the Medical division. No further events occurred after 30 September 2011 which are of major significance to the Balda Group and might result in a dif- ferent assessment of the company. Forecast Macroeconomic development The assessment for the development of the macro economy is not as bright as the report for the first half of 2011. The posi- tive development of the global economy will continue at a much slower rate in 2011. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is expecting global growth to be around 4 percent for the current year. The emerging countries will remain the drivers of growth. The main impetus for growth is provided by exports and rising raw material prices. For China gross domestic product is expected to grow by 9.4 percent. Growth in the US economy will fall in the current year to 1.6 percent. Recently the downside risks in the US economy have increased due to the continued difficult situation in the employment market and the high national debt. In the eurozone the debt crisis for the banks and some countries in the eurozone should continue to have a negative impact on the spending behaviour of private and public households. The IMF is expecting GDP growth of around 1.5 percent in the eurozone in 2011 following 1.7 percent in the previous year. The leading economic research institutes are not expecting a recession in Germany. According to economists, economic out- put should fall slightly in the fourth quarter. Overall Germany’s economy should grow overall by around 2.9 percent in 2011. Unemployment will continue to fall in the view of the leading economic research institutes. According to the autumn report, the unemployment rate should fall from just below three million in the current year to around 2.8 million in 2012. This equa- tes to an unemployment rate of 7.0 percent for 2011 and 6.7 percent for 2012. Sector situation Medical The demand for German medical technology will remain stable in 2011 and 2012 according to the trade association SPEC- TARIS. After an increase of 9 percent in 2010, sales will rise this year by a two-digit figure. In particular the increase in orders from abroad is contributing to this result. The emerging markets will, according to market researchers, become even more important as sales markets for medical technology in future. The aging population in Western Europe and the willingness of consumers to spend more on health support the optimistic forecasts of experts. The innovative strength of German medical technology manufacturers is a further driver of the foreca- sted growth. Market observers see opportunities in particular in the international acceptance of German healthcare products. Experts expect that the global health market will double from currently 220 billion euros to around 450 billion euros by 2020. Electronic Products The continued turbulence in the financial markets did not have any serious consequences for the global market for electronic products in the first nine months of 2011. The forecasts for the coming months are also mainly optimistic. The majority of companies in the electronics sector can expect further growth in 2012.12
  • 13. Quarterly Report III/2011Attractive and easy-to-operate devices such as the tablet PC and electronic components for smartphones will continue togenerate global demand. Newly developed software programmes and applications (apps) will also have a positive impact onthe development of sales. The fast development of new devices and the ever shorter lifecycles of products will, though, inten-sify price competition among manufacturers of consumer electronics. This development will, according to experts, result infalling margins in spite of higher sales.Future corporate situationThe Electronic Products segment will no longer be able to make up entirely for the loss in sales due to the short supply ofelectronics components from Japan by the end of the year. The targeted sales figure will not be achieved in full. After a nega-tive EBIT in the first quarter of 2011 and two break-even quarters, a minus EBIT can be expected for year as a whole.Sales revenue in the Medical segment will increase significantly in the last quarter of 2011 compared to the previous quarter.The earnings situation will improve.The Balda Group is expecting sales revenue in the 2011 financial year to be at the lower end of the forecast of around 70million euros with a slightly positive EBIT in the continued business divisions. Any special effects or special write-downs arenot considered. The EBT will be higher than the EBIT.Risks and opportunities reportThe Balda Group identifies and assesses its opportunities and risks on a continuous basis. The Group management reportfor the 2010 financial year describes the opportunities and risks for the Group in detail. Changes to the opportunities andrisks situation are also indicated in the interim report for the first half of 2011. During the third quarter of the current financi-al year the opportunities and risks position of the Group has changed due to the following factors:Financial risksDevelopments in the financial markets might increase the risks for Balda AG. This applies in particular with regard to risinginflation, the reluctance of consumers to buy and negative influences on the share price of Balda’s holding in TPK.Financial markets have been characterised by escalating national debts in several eurozone countries and banks and theassociated risks in the third quarter of 2011. In spite of repeated interventions by the European Central Bank, theInternational Monetary Fund and the European Commission, the situation in Greece and other periphery countries remainsfragile. The slow progress with structural changes increased the probability of Greece’s debts being cut. Italy is also affectedby a rising national deficit. Due to the hesitant management of governments in Europe, the ratings agency Standard andPoor’s downgraded Italy’s credit rating in September 2011. This step unsettled the markets still further.The cutting of Greece’s debt by 50 percent will result in high write-offs for the banks and have a negative impact on the capi-tal adequacy of the financial institutes concerned. According to the decision by the EU states on 26 October 2011, thisimpact may be absorbed by the EFSF fund or by the states. Politicians would need to take further fiscal actions in order toprotect the existence of banks. This scenario might further exacerbate national debts in Europe.In spite of the increase in its debt ceiling, the USA remain a negative factor for the global economy. The high indebtednessof the public sector, companies and private households on the one hand and the reluctance to buy, high unemployment andlow growth on the other are risk factors in the US economy. 13
  • 14. Quarterly Report III/2011 The drastic increase in the amount of money in circulation due to the intervention of issuing banks heightens the risk of rising inflation. Rising food and energy prices are also a risk factor for global price stability. In particular the emerging and developing countries considered to be a destination for investment are affected by this development. The increased uncertainty in share markets caused by the banking crisis in Europe might adversely affect global stock mar- kets. The share price of TPK might suffer as a result despite positive fundamental data. Currency risks Further risks could arise due to the standard rate of exchange between the euro and the US dollar changing. A weakening of the US dollar might have a negative impact on the Balda Groups sales invoiced in the American currency. Any fall in the value of the euro would adversely affect the Medical subsidiary located in Germany. With regard to the potential sale of TPK shares, risks might arise for the Group from fluctuations in the exchange rate between the Taiwanese dollar and the US dollar. Risks and opportunities in the market for suppliers The difficult situation in the raw materials market might place further pressure on prices in the sales markets. The increasing competition in sales markets with increasing pressure on prices might also have a negative impact on the Group. Customer risks The business performance of the Balda Group depends on the market success of its customers. The non-acceptance of pro- ducts and any loss of market shares by these customers could have a negative effect on the Group’s order volumes. The Balda Group takes the opportunity to efficiently control this risk efficiently with technological diversification and further innovation. The Group reduces the risk of dependency on a few customers with the development of its own products for new customers in the Electronic Products and Medical segments. Macroeconomic risks The natural disaster in Japan at the start of 2011 curbed global economic development in the first few months of the current year. This resulted in bottlenecks in the supply of components. The trend towards renewable energy sources might result in much higher energy prices and have a negative impact on the competitiveness of German companies. One risk is, as mentioned above, high levels of national debt in several European countries. A possible default on Greek government bonds or a large debt cut would directly affect European banks. High write-downs on their security holdings might generate further uncertainty in the financial markets. TPK share risk Balda AG’s holding in the touchscreen manufacturer TPK is a major asset of the Balda Group. The value of this holding is also dependent on the political, financial and economic environment. The trends in the financial markets and the related wil- lingness of market players to invest might have a significant impact on the share price of TPK, regardless of the company’s fundamental data. Any worsening of the global debt and banking crisis before the end of a lock-up period might have a nega- tive impact on the value of Balda’s holding. Acquisition risk After the sale of the MobileCom segment, the Group’s competitive capacity has reached a lower level. The failure to grow combined with the planned acquisition to materialise might represent an existential risk for the Group. Overall risk Based on the present level of information, there are no further risks for the growth or existence of the Group that go beyond the risks described above. The Board of Directors currently has no further knowledge concerning the worsening of any of the above-mentioned risks.14
  • 15. Quarterly Report III/2011OpportunitiesThe Groups opportunities can be summarised as follows. With its current level of liquid assets as of the end of the thirdquarter of 2011 and the TPK holding, the company has sufficient financial and personnel resources to achieve its goals.Balda is capable of realising important projects, such as the implementation of planned investments and possibly a mergeror acquisition, primarily by its own means.Balda shareNervous share marketsThe slowdown in growth in the global economy and the national and bank debt crisis in Europe depressed the mood of stockmarkets worldwide in the period under review. This development resulted in a heavy fall in share prices. It was not until theend of the third quarter that international share markets were given fresh impetus by positive economic data from the USAand the hope that the eurozone would find a way out of the debt crisis after all. The leading German index DAX ended thethird quarter on 5,502 points. It therefore recorded in the nine months a fall of 21.1 percent (opening price 2011: 6,973points). The German Small Cap Index, in which the share of Balda AG is listed, experienced a similar development. TheSDax has lost 934 points since the start of the year. It was on 4,311 points at the end of the period under review, a drop of17.8 percent.Balda AG’s share was not left unscathed by the downswing in the stock markets and ended the third quarter on 5.84 euros.The share certificates were therefore around 35.7 percent below the closing price for the second quarter of 2011. In the peri-od January to September 2011 Balda AGs share price fell by 14.8 percent. The nine-month high of the Balda share on theXetra trading platform was 9.89 euros on 19 May 2011.

  • 16. Quarterly Report III/2011 In the first nine months on average 432,777 shares were traded per day (Xetra) (previous year: 310,107 shares per day). The market capitalisation of Balda AG was 343.9 million euros as of 30 September 2011 based on 58,890,636 million sha- res. On 31 December 2010 its stock exchange value was 406.3 million euros. Selected explanatory notes General explanations The headquarters of Balda Aktiengesellschaft is located in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. The interim report as of 30 September 2011 was prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as they are to be applied within the European Union (EU). The accounting methods applied are in accor- dance with the EU regulations for the accounting of consolidated financial statements. All values stated are in Euros (KEUR), unless noted otherwise. The financial statements of the companies included in the consolidated financial statements are based on uniform accoun- ting and valuation principles that comply with the IFRS. Changed basis of consolidation In January 2011 the legal requirements for closing Balda Solutions (Xiamen) Ltd, Xiamen (China) were met. The company was liquidated and is no longer included in the basis of consolidation. In the third quarter of 2011 three new companies were established in Singapore, the shares of which are held 100 % by the Dutch intermediate holding company Balda Investments Netherlands BV.: Balda Investments Malaysia Pte. Ltd. Balda Investments Suzhou Pte. Ltd. Balda Investments Beijing Pte. Ltd. The companies take over the holdings in the operating companies of the MobileCom segment and Electronic Products from the intermediate holding company Balda Investments Singapore Ltd., Singapore. Balda Investments Malaysia Ltd. takes over the hol- ding in the operating company in Malaysia. Balda Investments Suzhou Ltd. takes over the holding in the (no longer operating) company Balda Solutions (Suzhou) Ltd., Suzhou (China). Balda Investments Beijing Ltd. takes over the shares in Balda Solutions (Beijing) Ltd. including BTO Technologies Ltd and Balda Solutions Suzhou Sales & Finance Ltd. The Group has therefo- re created clear structures for the two segments. The consolidated financial statements of the first nine months of 2011 included, alongside Balda AG, six domestic and 13 foreign subsidiaries within the scope of full consolidation. Information about the accounting and valuation methods The interim consolidated financial statements as of 30 September 2011 were prepared for the interim reporting taking into account the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as they are to be applied within the EU. In accordance with the regulations of IAS 34, a condensed report compared to the consolidated financial statements as of 31 December 2010 was selected. The interim consolidated financial statements were prepared applying the same accounting, valuation and consolida- tion methods as in the consolidated financial statements for the 2010 financial year and comply with the IAS 34 regulations (interim reporting).16
  • 17. Quarterly Report III/2011The principles and methods of the estimates for the interim report have not changed compared to the previous periods (IAS34,16 (d)). A detailed account of the accounting, consolidation and valuation methods is given in the notes of the annual financi-al statements as of 31 December 2010. The exercising of options included in the IFRS is also addressed here.The exchange rates taken as basis for the foreign exchange translation related to EUR 1.00 changed as follows: Average spot-exchange rate on reference date Average exchange rates 30.

In the Medical segment the Group manufac-tures complex plastic products for the medical sector. The Electronic Products segment has been focusing on the developmentand production of electronic products since the realignment. The Central Services segment includes expenditure and incomerelating to holding functions and income from the shareholding in TPK.In accordance with internal reporting, information on total output has been added to the segment reporting. The total output com-prises sales revenue, other operating income and changes in inventories of finished and unfinished goods. The development ofsales and the earnings situation of the individual Group segments are presented in detail in "Business development" (see page 6).Financial positionRise in operating cash flowThe cash flow statement is prepared in accordance with IFRS for the Group, including the discontinued business divisions.The figures for the discontinued business divisions are shown separately in the table in the appendix as an “of which” figure.The inflow of funds from ongoing business activities in the Balda Group totalled 2.6 million euros in the first nine months of2011. In the same period of the previous year the Group recorded an outflow of funds of 11.6 million Euros. The reason forthe increase in the period under review was the reduction in the working capital.The Balda Group spent 3.3 million euros on investment activity in the period under review (previous year: 9.1 million euros).In the same period of the previous year the cash flow from investment activities was influenced by payments relating to thesale of shares in Group companies (12.1 million euros) and dividend inflows (6.9 million euros).In the first nine months of 2011, in particular the repayment of credit lines in the MobileCom segment in the amount of 9.0million euros resulted in an outflow of funds from financing activities. In the previous year, the utilisation of credit lines forfinancing activities resulted in an inflow of funds of 9.8 million euros. 17
  • 18. Quarterly Report III/2011 The Groups cash and cash equivalents totalled as of the end of September 2011 38.7 million euros (30 September 2010: 55.3 million euros). Cash and cash equivalents relating to the continued business divisions totalled 35.8 million euros. Due to its continued comfortable level of cash and cash equivalents, Balda is able to finance the operational business in 2011 from its own resources. Balance sheet structure The Balda Group recorded as of 30 September 2011 a balance sheet total of 661.0 million euros following 810.5 million euros as of 31 December 2010. The fall of 149.5 million euros is primarily attributable to the decline in the value of the TPK holding. On the assets side, the value of fixed assets fell as of 30 September 2011 from 61.6 million euros as of the 2010 reference sheet date to 24.9 million euros. This fall was primarily due to the devaluation of the likely recoverable amount in the market for the assets of the MobileCom segment. The Balda Group started its search in June 2011 for a buyer for the MobileCom segment. With this, the segment was reclassified from non-current to current assets. On 31 October the contracts for the sale of 100 % of the shares in the MobileCom companies were closed. Goodwill was reduced as a result of the write-down of goodwill for Balda Solutions Beijing following the devaluation of the assets to 6.8 million euros (2010 balance sheet date: 15.7 million euros). The value of the holding in TPK fell due to the share performance in the first nine months of 2011 by 100.5 million euros to 526.8 million euros. The share price fell from 670 Taiwanese dollars (TWD) per share as of the end of 2010 to 577 TWD per share on 30 September 2011. Due to the planned sale of 9.5 million shares in connection with the capital increase of TPK the value of this portion of the shares (132.4 million euros) was reclassified as of 30 September 2011 as “assets held for sale”. Overall non-current assets fell as of the end of the third quarter of 2011 by 317.3 million euros to 394.4 million euros from 711.7 million euros as of 31 December 2010. With current assets, inventories fell as of 30 September 2011 to 15.2 million euros (2010 balance sheet date: 18.6 million euros). The fall of 3.4 million euros is primarily attributable to the reclassification of the MobileCom segment. Due to customer payments in particular in the MobileCom segment and the reclassification to assets held for sale, trade accounts receivable fell as of 30 September 2011 by 16.9 million euros to 8.9 million euros (31 December 2010: 25.8 mil- lion euros). The fall in liquid assets by 13.1 million euros to 35.8 million euros as of 30 September 2011 (2010 balance sheet date: 48.9 million euros) is primarily attributable to the repayment of credit lines and the financing of the MobileCom segment. The assets held for sale totalled 166.2 million euros as of 30 September 2011 (2010 reference date: 0 million euros). This item includes the portion of the TPK holding held for sale (132.4 million euros) and current and non-current assets in the MobileCom segment following devaluation to the anticipated disposal proceeds.18

The fall of 135.5 million euros is attributable to the revaluation of the TPK shares and diffe-rences due to currency translation.Current liabilities fells as of 30 September 2011 to 4.8 million euros from 5.9 million euros as of the 2010 balance sheetdate.Current liabilities fell by 12.8 million euros to 42.0 million euros as of the end of the third quarter (2010 balance sheet date:54.8 million euros). In detail the items changed as follows:The fall in trade accounts receivable to 5.4 million euros from 21.6 million euros as of the 2010 balance sheet date is attri-butable to the reclassification of the MobileCom segment. The repayment of credit lines in the MobileCom segment and itsreclassification resulted as of the end of the third quarter in a fall in the item current liabilities due to credit institutions andcurrent part of long-term loans to 0.5 million euros (2010 balance sheet date: 19.8 million euros).The planned sale of the MobileCom segment involves 20.7 million euros of liabilities relating to assets held for sale, compri-sing million eurosTrade payables 8.6Current bank liabilities 7.7Other current liabilities 0.9Long-term bank liabilities 3.5The other balance sheet items have not changed significantly as of 30 September 2011 compared to the end of the previousyear.Income statementThe Balda Group achieved in the first nine months of the current financial year in the continued business divisions sales of44.4 million euros compared to 46.5 million euros in the same period of the previous year. This equates to a fall of 2.1 millioneuros or 4.5 percent. The Electronic Products segment is responsible for this. This performance is partly attributable to theconsequences of the nuclear disaster in Japan. Bottlenecks at the suppliers of electronics components from Japan to be builtinto electronic devices resulted in production stops in Malaysia. This had a negative impact on the segment’s order volume. Atthe same time postponements of orders resulted in a fall in sales revenue in the period under review. 19
  • 20. Quarterly Report III/2011 Delays in billing for tools had a negative impact on the Medical segment’s sales in the third quarter of 2011. With sales of 15.4 million euros, the Balda Group generated earnings of around 3.0 million euros less in the third quarter of 2011 than in the same period of the previous year. In the previous quarter in 2010 earnings totalled 18.4 million euros. The business performance including the earnings position of the individual segments is presented in the interim report on page 6 ff. Other operating income in the period under review totalled 5.7 million (same period of the previous year: 8.1 million euros). The Balda Group recorded an overall operating performance of 50.4 million euros in the period under review (same period for the previous year: 55.4 million euros). The cost of materials fell in the period under review to 26.3 million euros (same period of the previous year: 27.5 million euros). In particular the lower sales volume was responsible for this. The cost of materials ratio measured against overall ope- rating performance increased in the period under review from 49.7 percent to 52.1 percent. This is attributable to the increa- sed cost of materials related to the billing of tools in the Medical segment. The material usage ratio in the tool business is much higher than for articles. Expenditure on personnel fell as a result of the fall in overall operating performance. The Group spent 13.2 million euros (pre- vious year: 14.1 million euros) on personnel and social services. Measured against overall operating performance, the person- nel expenses ratio after nine months of 2011 stood at 26.2 percent (previous year: 25.4 percent). The cost of depreciation fell in the period under review to 2.8 million euros following 4.5 million euros in the same period of the previous year. This is mainly attributable to capitalised customer relationships accounted for in the previous year in the Electronic Products segment no longer applying and lower scheduled depreciation in the current financial year due to the spe- cial write-downs at the end of 2010 in the Electronic Products segment. Earnings development The Balda Group reports an EBIT of 0.1 million euros in the first nine months for its continued business divisions (same peri- od of the previous year: 1.3 million euros). In the third quarter from July to September the Group’s EBIT was minus 1.0 million euros (same period of the previous year: plus 0.7 million euros). The continued pressure on margins and low utilisation in the Electronic Products segment had an adverse effect on the EBIT in the period under review. The Balda Group’s financial earnings fell to 5.6 million euros (same period of the previous year: 11.9 million euros). The fall is primarily due to the loss of earnings from associated companies. The earnings of associated companies relating to the share- holding in TPK are no longer reported as financial assets after the loss of significant influence and the change in the valuation method in October 2010. In the same period for the previous year a figure of 14.3 million Euros was reported here. On the other hand currency gains relating to internal financing resulted overall in positive financial earnings in the first nine months of the financial year. Due to the performance of the US dollar as of the balance sheet date, the loan valuation resulted in negati- ve financial earnings in the third quarter. The EBT is at 5.7 million euros in the period under review around 7.6 million euros below the previous year’s figure of 13.3 million euros. After offsetting taxes on income and earnings of 0.9 million euros (same period for the previous year: tax revenue of 0.4 mil- lion euros), the profit achieved in the Balda Groups continued business divisions after nine months in the current financial year was 6.6 million euros following 13.6 million euros in the same period of the previous year. The discontinued business divisions recorded a loss for the period of 35.0 million euros in the period under review (same peri- od of the previous year: loss for the period of 6.7 million euros). This includes special accounting write-downs to the recovera-20

The loss from the operating business of the discontinued busi-ness divisions was 10.5 million euros in the first nine months of 2011.In the first three quarters of 2011 the Balda Group recorded in its continued and discontinued business divisions a loss for theperiod of 28.4 million euros. In the same period of the previous year the Group recorded an overall profit of 6.9 million euros.Based on 58.891 million shares, the profit for the period results in undiluted earnings per share of 0.11 euros. In the previousyear the earnings per share based on 54.157 million shares were 0.25 euros.Related partiesAlongside the companies included in the consolidated financial statements, there are companies and persons, as well aspersons in key positions of management that are related to the Balda Group according to IAS 24. In the period under reviewthere were no business relations with these persons or companies excepting the remuneration payments to the Board ofDirectors and the Supervisory Board.Other financial obligationsOther financial obligations, consisting mainly of letting and leasing obligations as well as purchase commitments for invest-ments, amounted to 0.5 million euros as of the 30th September of the current financial year.Events after the reference dateInformation on significant events after the reference date is presented in this report in "Events after the reference date" onpage 11.Details on the preparation of the interim reportThe consolidated balance sheet, the statements of comprehensive income, cash flow statements, the segment reports, thestatements of changes in equity, the interim management report and the condensed notes prepared as of the 30thSeptember 2011 have not been audited or subjected to an auditing review.
