Delbrück, April 4, 2013: In their meeting today, the Supervisory Board and
Managing Board of paragon AG decided to submit a joint proposal for the
appropriation of the Company's profit for the 2012 financial year.

The Managing Board had originally proposed a profit appropriation that
contained a dividend of EUR 0.25 per dividend-bearing no-par-value share.
However, the Supervisory Board voted in its meeting on April 4, 2013 to
propose a profit appropriation which, in addition to the dividend of
EUR 0.25 per dividend-bearing share, contained a special dividend of 
EUR 0.10 on the occasion of paragon's 25th anniversary, which would make a
total of EUR 0.35 per share. The Managing Board goes along with the
Supervisory Board's proposal.

This joint proposal for the appropriation of profit will be put to a vote
at the Company's annual general meeting being held at the Stadthalle in
Delbrück on May 15 this year.
