Taucha, 13 November 2003: LINTEC Information Technologies AG (WKN 648
600, ISIN DE0006486004) reports a slightly positive EBIT for the
first three Quarters 2003 (Euro 130k), compared with a Euro 13.9
million loss for the same period last year.
As expected, demand remained disappointing during the two summer
months, however, it improved noticeably in September. The main reason
for the negative EBITDA in the third Quarter was the contribution
from the subsidiaries rfi AG and Intenso GmbH which was below
expectation. This was a main reason for the sale of the LINTEC’s
stake in Intenso and the most cost intensive business area of rfi AG
after the close of the Quarter. Both transactions were reported
adhoc.
This is an overview of the key figures:

Despite unsatisfactory results of concern subsidiaries rfi AG,
Batavia AG and Intenso GmbH the progress within LINTEC’s core
business as well as the venture capital business MVC AG is
increasingly pleasing. As a consequence, LINTEC cautiously adjusted
valuations within the venture capital company at the Quarter end.
The restructuring work aimed at refocusing and stream lining
continues to be on target. Personnel costs were reduced by one third
throughout the concern compared with the same period last year. The
LINTEC group employed 266 people at the end of the Quarter after 421
one year ago.
The LINTEC management board expects a reduction in sales and an
improvement of operating results following the deconsolidation of
Intenso GmbH. The company expects a positive EBIT for the full year
of 2003.
