Share Price Performance.
Against the backdrop of a temporary dip experienced by stock markets at the beginning of the period under review, Wincor Nixdorf shares fell more sharply than the benchmark MDAX. However, stock markets gained momentum over the course of the remainder of 2005 and at the beginning of 2006, with Wincor Nixdorf shares more than offsetting their initial decline.

In May 2006, Wincor Nixdorf's share price climbed to €122.31, its highest level during this period. Shortly afterwards, international stock markets – and in particular German mid caps – underwent a period of significant adjustment prompted mainly by inflation fears. At times, the value of Wincor Nixdorf shares receded below the €90.00 mark.

The stock regained its footing following the announcement of results for the third quarter of fiscal 2005/2006 and closed at €114.65 on September 30, 2006. Recording a gain of 43.3% in the period under review, Wincor Nixdorf shares outperformed the MDAX Performance Index (+20.3%) by a significant margin. This coincided with a palpable increase in the average trading volume of Wincor Nixdorf shares on all German stock exchanges. It rose from 0.8 million shares per month in fiscal 2004/2005 to 1.3 million shares per month in fiscal 2005/2006.

Since the initial listing of Wincor Nixdorf shares (May 2004) roughly two and half years ago, the Company's share price has risen by 179.6%.
