Germany's largest municipal utility group, the Mannheim-based energy distribution and service company MVV Energie, which is listed in the SDAX, increased its sales in the 1st quarter of the current 2006/07 financial year (1 October - 31 December 2006) by 6 percent compared with the previous year to Euro 582 million (previous year: Euro 551 million). At the same time, its operating earnings (EBIT) of Euro 69 million were 10 percent lower than in the previous year (Euro 77 million). As a result of the prolonged unusually mild winter, turnover in the district heating and gas segments, which is dependent on weather conditions, declined by up to 22 percent. The environmental energy and value-added services segments, however, continued to perform very positively in the 1st quarter of 2006/07. Given that the unusually mild weather conditions have so far also continued into the 2nd quarter of 2006/07, the MVV Energie Group expects to see further downturns in volumes and earnings in the two segments of district heating and gas thereby affected. On the basis of the information currently available, it is expected not to be possible to reach the sales and operating earnings targets for the 2006/07 financial year published in November 2006. Operating earnings (EBIT) for the current 2006/07 financial year as a whole are expected to fall slightly short of the results reported for the highly successful 2005/06 financial year. In view of the capital increase to be undertaken before the end of the first half of the 2007 calendar year, the company has to forgo the publication of amended sales and earnings targets.
