The positive performance seen in Q3 2005 continued in the fourth quarter. At EUR 173.4 million, total 2005 sales were up 3.6% on the previous year (EUR 167.4 million). Better capacity utilisation and strict cost management helped to offset part of the sharp increase in the cost of materials.

According to preliminary figures, earnings before income taxes amounted to EUR 8.6 million (previous year EUR 9.7 million). The improved capacity utilisation was attributable to a 25.7% increase in foreign sales to EUR 35.5 million. The export share stood at 20.5% (previous year 16.9 %).

The final figures will be published on March 15, 2006. Our dividend proposal will be announced on the same day.
