Advanced Medien AG and the subsidiary TSC Technische Systeme Consult GmbH contributed to revenues.

The amortization of film assets decreased from EUR 8.1 million in the first nine months of last year to EUR 2.0 million. As a result, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) according to IAS for the first nine months were negative at minus EUR 4.3 million (previous year: minus EUR 2.5 million). The net loss for the period from January 1 to September 30, 2003, increased to EUR 5.1 million. This compares to a loss of EUR 4.0 million in the same period of last year.
