(PresseBox) ( Passau, )
InTiCa Systems AG (ISIN DE0005874846, ticker IS7), which is listed in the Prime Standard on Frankfurt Stock Exchange, hereby reports that the responsible Czech authorities have ordered provisional quarantine and Covid-19 testing for all staff employed at InTiCa Systems’ site in Prachatice, Czech Republic, due to Covid-19 infections at the facility. The responsible authorities are expected to take a decision on the scope and duration of the quarantine when the test results are available, probably at the end of this week.

The authorities have not closed the Prachatice site so it is still possible to deliver finished products and warehouse stock. However, a complete production stoppage at the Prachatice site is likely during the quarantine period. InTiCa Systems AG, the Board of Directors and the local management are working closely with the Czech authorities to protect the company's employees and their relatives and minimize the impact on production and customers of InTiCa Systems AG.

The Board of Directors anticipates a potential loss of sales of up to EUR 1.5 million for each week of the production stoppage. It may not be possible to recoup this by the end of the financial year. It is not yet possible to estimate the exact impact on earnings. The Board of Directors is still not able to provide guidance for annual sales and earnings as it is not possible to forecast the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
