CURRENT INFORMATION ON THE SHIPPING / DELIVERY SITUATION AND PRICE DEVELOPMENT

Dear partners,

We would like to inform you that there are currently massive delays in some deliveries, as the production facilities in Asia are very
heavily booked and there is also an extreme shortage of containers in the Far East. The situation is aggravated by the fact that, due to
Covid-19, only limited production capacities are available. The latter in particular is very clear from the current example from China:
drastic lockdown measures have been in place here for a few days to reduce the rapid spread of the virus. The effects of these measures
will be available shortly.

The above mentioned reasons together ensure that freight, container costs and prices of raw materials have risen sharply and continue
to do so. The main problems that have already caused container costs and prices of raw materials to rise many times over are on the one
hand acute container shortages in the Far East and on the other hand a present shortage of raw materials. We have always monitored
past and current developments very closely and immediately incorporated them into our planning, but we have now reached a point
where we have to pass on some of the present cost increases.

It can be assumed that the situation will not improve in the near future and that, due to further increases in delivery times, the availability
of certain articles will be almost non-existent or even non-existent.

For months we have been working at full speed to counteract the current developments with regard to availability, delivery times and
price adjustments. Unfortunately, in many cases our hands are tied, which is why we are now forced to make adjustments as well. We ask

for your understanding in this matter. Thank you very much!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us at any time.

Best regards
