Munich, February 8, 2006. The ProSiebenSat.1 Group had a very successful fiscal 2005. Germany’s largest commercial television corporation boosted both revenues and earnings substantially. From a first analysis of preliminary figures for 2005, the Company expects revenues of EUR 1.990 billion, an 8.4 percent gain from the previous year (EUR 1.835 billion). Preliminary EBITDA is at EUR 418.5 million, up 30 percent from the previous year (EUR 321.3 million). Pre-tax profit grew 61 percent in 2005, from EUR 217.5 million to EUR 350.7 million. Consolidated profit increased by 65 percent, from EUR 133.6 million to EUR 220.9 million. The EBITDA margin for the year improved to 21.0 percent, compared to 17.5 percent in 2004. After adjustment for the costs of 9Live, total costs were at the same level as the year before.

The substantial rise in EBITDA and pre-tax earnings resulted from the year’s higher revenues in the second half and especially in the fourth quarter. In the fourth quarter of last year, Group revenues were up 18 percent to EUR 636.0 million, compared to EUR 540.2 million a year earlier. EBITDA grew 50 percent, from the EUR 112.2 million of Q4 2004 to EUR 167.8 million.
