FLSmidth: FLSmidth penalty on former subsidiary upheld

Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No.
08-2014, 30 April 2014.

The European Court of Justice has today ruled that the penalty imposed on
FLSmidth&Co. A/S in March 2012 is upheld at EUR 14.45m (see Company
Announcement No. 13-2012, 6 March 2012).

As announced in 2005 (see Company Announcement No. 30-2005, 1 December 2005)
the European Commission ruled that FLSmidth&Co. A/S and the subsidiary
company FLS Plast A/S were to be held partly liable with regards to a cartel
penalty on a formerly FLSmidth-owned French company then named Silvallac S.A
(later Trioplast Wittenheim).

FLSmidth has appealed the cartel decision twice, latest in March 2012 where
the General Court reduced FLSmidth&Co. A/S' and the subsidiary company FLS
Plast A/S' partly liability for this penalty. The liability was reduced from
EUR 15.30m to EUR 14.45m.

The judgement concerning FLS Plast A/S is still pending.

The Group's guidance for 2014 will not be affected by the penalty.
