KHD adjusts forecast

Cologne, Germany, August 4, 2014 - KHD Humboldt Wedag International AG
(KHD), Cologne, is updating its annual budget and adjusting its forecast
for the 2014 financial year accordingly. Although the Parts & Services
segment is expected to perform better than originally planned, the Capex
segment has been strongly affected by risks arising from the current
economic and political developments.

In connection with the crisis in the Ukraine and the resulting
uncertainties, a large order in Russia, will most likely no longer be
considered as order intake for the current year. This order was announced
in April 2014 with an original volume of over EUR 90 million. However, KHD
has not yet been able to book this order as order intake. As a result of
this, the Group now expects order intake for the 2014 financial year to
reach just below the 2013 order intake level, which amounted to EUR 172.4
million. This also means that KHD will not receive the forecasted down
payments for this project and therefore operating cash flow for the 2014
financial year is now forecasted to be significantly negative.

The reported postponements in order intake as well as further delays in
order execution are also having an impact on expected revenues. For the
2014 financial year, KHD is now forecasting a drop in revenue of up to 10%
compared to the previous year (EUR 249.6 million). However, KHD maintains
its latest EBIT margin guidance for the 2014 financial year.
