PrimaCom reports further improved consolidated revenues for the first quarter 2005.

For first quarter ended March 31, 2005, revenues reached Euro 54.3 million, a 6.2 percent increase over the first quarter ended March 31, 2004.

Operating profit decreased, due to extraordinary expenses of financial restructuring to Euro 3.9 million in the first quarter of 2005  compared with Euro 5.5 million in the first quarter of 2004.

EBITDA for the first quarter of 2005 fell to Euro 25.2 million, a 4.0 percent decrease compared with first quarter 2004 EBITDA.

In the first quarter of 2005, EBITDA and operating profit was negatively impacted by the high-level of Euro 3.0 million professional fees, related to the ongoing efforts to achieve a financial restructuring of the Company. Of the Euro 3.0 million, Euro 2.8 million relates to the indemnification by PrimaCom, under the Senior and Second Secured Facility agreements, of costs incurred by the respective bank groups for their legal and accounting advice, together with the corresponding costs of PrimaCom’s own lawyers.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2005 was Euro 29.0 million compared with a net loss of Euro 25.9 million for the first quarter of 2004.

Revenue generating units increased by 33,804 or 2.4 per cent from 1,405,086 at March 31, 2004 to 1,438,890 at March 31, 2005, with a decline in analog customers of 2.0 per cent being offset by substantial growth in both Internet and telephony customers.

PrimaCom continues to focus on revenue improvements, cost reduction management and profitability improvements and actively pursues all opportunities to reorganise its debt and equity structure.
