-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 31.03.2006 Frankfurt, March 31, 2006. Neue Sentimental Film AG (German Securities Code - WKN - 534 140), a leading, international media company for the production of advertising films and TV formats, recorded positive EBIT totaling EUR 0.5 million in Q4 2005. Assuming that all of the companies fully consolidated in the group as at the start of 2005 remained consolidated until the end of the year, the group would also have reached its sales target of EUR 9.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. This would thus result in a 9% increased compared to annual sales for 2004 adjusted for consolidation. This means that Neue Sentimental Film AG’s sales for 2005 as a whole were on target at EUR 33.6 million after EUR 33.8 million in the previous year. However, the changed conditions on the market have led Neue Sentimental Film to remove the New Zealand subsidiary from the consolidated group; in addition, Group.IE Gesellschaft für Identity Engineering mbH is no longer fully consolidated. Neither of companies' membership in the Neue Sentimental Film group was bringing the desired synergy effects. After adjustment for these companies' earnings, sales in 2005 totaled EUR 28.9 million and EBIT totaled EUR -0.9 million compared to EUR -0.1 million in 2004. After years of difficult conditions on the market, a sustained improvement is making itself felt for 2006. Neue Sentimental Film AG is thus optimistic for the current fiscal year 2006. The modifications to the group of consolidated companies that have been put in place, coupled with further structural optimization measures are already bearing their first fruit. The start of the year was pleasing, with sales and earnings in January and February up year-on-year. A significant increase in sales and positive EBIT are being forecast for the year as a whole. Neue Sentimental Film AG's current clients include Ferrero, Dr. Oetker, Burger King, Nestle, MTV, Thomy, Knorr, Haribo, Deutsche Börse, Postbank, Danone, Citroen, Poly Color, Erste Bank Österreich and a host of other companies. The audited 2005 annual report will be available during the course of the day at end of announcement euro adhoc 31.03.2006 08:50:43 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ots Originaltext: Neue Sentimental Film AG Im Internet recherchierbar: Further inquiry note: Neue Sentimental Film AG Klaus Niemeyer Managing Board Member Tel.: +49 (0) 69/943314 36-0 Fax: +49(0)69/4970303 E-Mail:m Branche: Cinema ISIN: DE0005341408 WKN: 534 140 Index: CDAX, Classic All Share, Prime All Share Börsen: Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse / regulated dealing/prime standard Börse Berlin-Bremen / free trade Hamburger Wertpapierbörse / free trade Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse / free trade Börse Düsseldorf / free trade Niedersächsische Börse zu Hannover / free trade
