The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 14.08.2006 14 August 2006 - OnVista AG (DE0005461602) has recorded clear double digit percentage growth both in sales and profits in the first six months of 2006. In the first six months of 2006, group sales amounted to Euro 5.69 mill. and were consequently above plan. This represents an increase of 35% compared to the same period in the previous year (6 mths./05: Euro 4.22 mill.). In relation to the second quarter this resulted in sales totalling Euro 2.94 mill. as planned (Q2/05: Euro 2.22 mill.; +32%). Since costs grew less strongly than sales, all key performance figures improved markedly in the first half of the year and exceeded planning. In the first six months of 2006, EBITDA more than doubled (+122%) to Euro 0.53 mill. (6 mths./05: Euro 0.24 mill.). EBIT amounted to Euro 0.23 mill. (6 mths./05: '000 Euro 22; +954%). Following the sale of the 36% investment in IS.Teledata AG in December 2005, the previously at equity reported company no longer contributes to group profits. OnVista AG nevertheless increased its pre-tax group result by 31% to Euro 0.82 mill. (6 mths./05: Euro 0.63 mill.). In the period under review, the pre-tax profit to sales ratio came to 14% (6 mths./05: 15%). Below the line, the group net income totalled Euro 0.63 mill. in the first six months of 2006. This corresponds to a rise of 45% compared to the relevant figure for the same period last year (6 mths./05: Euro 0.43 mill.). Looking at the second quarter of 2006 in isolation, the OnVista Group, as planned, also advanced strongly in terms of its operating result. EBITDA totalled Euro 0.30 mill. (Q2/05: Euro 0.16 mill.; +93%). EBIT rose by 159% to Euro 0.13 mill. (Q2/05: '000 Euro 52). The pre-tax group result amounted to Euro 0.42 mill. (Q2/05: Euro 0.33 mill.; +30%). The group net income came to Euro 0.33 mill. (Q2/05: Euro 0.23 mill.; +44%). As at 30 June 2006, the liquid funds of the OnVista Group amounted to Euro 38.58 mill. (31.12.2005: Euro 40.09 mill.). The cash value per share stood at Euro 5.76 (31.12.2005: Euro 5.98). The decrease in liquid funds despite the excellent business trend and a positive operating cash flow is primarily due to the distribution of the dividend for the financial year 2005, the purchase of treasury stock for servicing stock options as well as investments in IT and product development. As a result of the encouraging order book for the coming months, the Executive Board of OnVista AG expects the second half of the year to be strong and is reaffirming its annual projections: For the year 2006 as a whole, the OnVista Group anticipates sales to rise by more than 25% to around Euro 12.5 mill. (2005: Euro 9.74 mill.) as well as overproportional growth in profits. The pre-tax group result is to increase by around 35% to more than Euro 2 mill. (2005: Euro 1.61 mill.).
