ROBIT PLC: GROWTH 28,6 PERCENT

2016 AT 11.00 A.M.

ROBIT PLC: GROWTH 28,6 PERCENT

Robit Plc continues its strong growth. The growth from the comparative period
was 28,6 percent.

Robit Plc publishes annually a half-year financial report and a financial
statements release. In accordance with the company's IR principles, Robit Plc
releases regularly also its quarterly net sales.

Robit Plc's unauditednet sales
in the review period 1-9/2016totaled EUR 42.037.145
(EUR 32.691.216 comparative period 1-9/2015), which means28,6
percent
growth
from the comparative period. It is notable that the recent acquisitions of
Drilling Tools Australia Pty Ltd and Bulroc (UK) Ltd changed Robit Plc's
structure and thus also the figures' comparability. The net sales of the
acquired companies is included in the disclosed Robit Plc's net sales only
for Q3/2016, i.e. the period following the acquisitions.

The net sales of the group when excluding the acquired companies' net sales
also developed positively. The growth from the comparative period was +4,4
percent. The company discloses this corresponding net sales figure once more
covering the whole financial year.

Market is expected to remain challenging, albeit slight signals of positive
change are being recognized. Robit Plc's largest market area after the
acquisitions has been Asia-Australia, where demand is expected to be more
active than in the rest of the world. In accordance with its plans, Robit Plc
continues integrating the acquired companies focusing on sales in order to
ensure further growth.

As a growth company Robit Plc's strategic target is to reach annual average
organic growth of 15 percent over the cycles. In 2015 the organic growth was
19,1 percent. The company's long-term (10 years) average growth has been 23
percent.
