Brødrene Hartmann A/S: Hartmann closes factory in Germany and transfers production

Following negotiations with employee representatives, Hartmann closes its
factory in Germany and transfers volumes to other European factories where
capacity is currently being expanded. The initiative will strengthen
competitiveness and profitability in an increasingly competitive European
market. Guidance for 2015 is maintained.

As stated in the interim report for Q2 2015 (company announcement no. 9/2015
published on 20 August 2015), Hartmann has negotiated with German employee
representatives concerning the proposed closure of the group's factory in
Schwedt, Germany. Negotiations have been concluded, and Hartmann's management
has decided to close the German factory and transfer production to other
European factories where capacity is currently being expanded.

The closure will be completed in Q2 2016 and is not expected to affect sales
in Europe or Hartmann's total revenue. The initiative entails 77 dismissals
in Germany and is expected to have full effect from 2017, contributing to the
realisation of Hartmann's long-term targets of increasing revenue to DKK
2.2-2.4 billion and the profit margin to 12-14% in 2017.

Special costs are still expected to come to DKK 90-110 million in 2015, and
Hartmann maintains guidance for 2015 of revenue of DKK 2.0-2.1 billion and a
profit margin of 10-11.5% before special items.

Hartmann's guidance for 2016 will be presented in connection with the
disclosure of the annual report for 2015 on 8 March 2016.
