Vita 34 AG increases Earnings per Share by 81 percent to EUR 0.67 and
attains an EBITDA Margin of 27.5 percent

Leipzig, March 21, 2016 - Vita 34 AG (WKN A0BL84) is publishing figures on
fiscal year 2015 in advance.

In fiscal year 2015 Vita 34 increased total operating revenues by 22.1
percent to EUR 18.5 million (2014: EUR 15.2 million). The period result
increased to EUR 1.7 million in the reporting period (2014: EUR 1.0
million), which equates to earnings per share of EUR 0.67. The increase as
compared with the previous year (2014: EUR 0.37) was, therefore 81.1
percent. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of EUR 1.6 million were
at the prior year's level (2014: EUR 1.7 million). The earnings before
interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) rose to EUR 3.9
million (2014: EUR 2.8 million), which is equivalent to an EBITDA margin of
27.5 percent (2014: 20.1 percent). Consequently, Vita 34 has exceeded its
own EBITDA forecast for fiscal year 2015 significantly, which had
originally foreseen EBITDA at the prior year's level.

Company revenues increased to EUR 14.2 million (2014: EUR 13.8 million)
based on the product VitaPlusNabelschnur [VitaPlusCord], as well as
acquisitions completed in 2015. Thus, the company exceeded prognoses set
for fiscal year 2015. Other operating income increased to EUR 4.3 million,
following EUR 1.7 million in the prior year's period. This development can
be traced back to the profit effects from the initial consolidation of the
acquisitions made.

The Management Board and the Supervisory Board have resolved, to propose an
increase of the dividend payment by 6.7 percent to EUR 0.16 per share to
the Annual General Meeting.

Vita 34 AG will publish the final figures for the 2015 reporting period, as
well as the forecast for fiscal year 2016 with the Annual Report 2015 on
March 30th, 2016.
