* For comparative purposes, 1Q 03 has been adjusted to reflect the
change in the accounting for third party value added services in the
fourth quarter of 2003.
** Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding interest,
taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairment charges, dividend
income, equity in earnings of affiliates, other non-operating
income/expense, minority interests and the cumulative effect of
changes in accounting principles. This equals operating income before
depreciation, amortization and impairment charges.
*** Results for 1Q 03 included a charge for the cumulative effect of
the adoption of SFAS 143 "Accounting for Asset Retirement
Obligation". The final calculation at year-end resulted in an upward
revision of the charge. The amount has been reallocated to 1Q 03
lowering net profit by EUR 5.6 million compared to the figure
reported last year.
