Neschen Group will return a net loss after tax (per IFRS) of approx. -9.4 mEUR (2004 -15.1 mEUR). This includes extraordinary expenses of approx. 7.9 mEUR for the restructuring programme (previous year also 7.9 mEUR). These expenses were incurred due to the closure of SEAL Graphics Europe B.V. in Raalte, Netherlands and personnel down-sizing in Bückeburg, Germany.

The result before extraordinary expenses improved by 5.8 mEUR to -1.4 mEUR. The goal of achieving break even before extraordinary expenses was not achieved yet.

The financial statements, for the first time per IFRS, show a shareholder equity of 1.2 mEUR (2004: 8.4 mEUR) and reflects the reduction due to the restructuring programme.

After completion of the restructuring programme which cost approx. 16 mEUR, Neschen AG aims to increase its group equity basis.

To optimize the cost structure, a consolidation of the US-companies took place in March 2006. The two-brand-strategy ("Neschen" and "SEAL") will continue with the new company "Neschen Americas".

The group sales-budget for the current year is 135 mEUR. Up to the end of February, the budgeted sales and results were on target; with the preliminary sales for March the results are expected to be achieved.
