• Revenues up 34% year-on-year • EBIT up around 80% to EUR 10.2 million

Hanover, April 3, 2007 - Delticom AG (WKN 514680, ISIN DE0005146807, stock market symbol DEX) has recorded a substantial year-on-year increase in its results. According to the current figures, the Delticom group recorded revenues totaling EUR 173.1 million in fiscal year 2006. This corresponds to an increase of 34.0 % over the previous year (EUR 129.2 million). The strongest sales driver in fiscal year 2006 was the eCommerce segment, where the Internet tire sales company recorded above average revenue growth of 42.2% to EUR 155.2 million (previous year: EUR 109.2 million). EBIT was up year-on-year by 78.9% to EUR 10.2 million (previous year: EUR 5.7 million). Consolidated net income increased from EUR 3.3 million in 2005 by 90.9% to EUR 6.3 million. This corresponds to basic earnings per share of EUR 1.97 (previous year: EUR 1.11).

In a year-on-year comparison, the Delticom group has improved its gross profit margin from 22.2% in 2005 to 23.5% in 2006. The EBIT margin has also increased by 1.5 percentage points to 5.9% (previous year: 4.4%). This improvement in margins is mostly due to more favorable purchasing conditions thanks to increasing order volumes and improved efficiency in marketing and logistics.

Although the unseasonably warm winter did not result in more winter tires being sold, Delticom was still able to increase its Q4 revenues yet again. Compared to Q4 2005, the company recorded revenue growth of 45.4% to EUR 64.2 million (previous year: EUR 44.2 million) in the final quarter of the year. This is due to the increased demand as a result of the new legal requirement for winter tires in Germany. In addition, Delticom was able to increase the proportion of its foreign sales from 48.4% in 2005 to 51.3% in 2006. In total, the Internet tire sales company acquired 490,000 new customers in 2006, lifting the total number of Delticom’s customers to 1,248,000.

The Managing and Supervisory Boards of Delticom AG will request the General Meeting on May 16, 2007 to approve a dividend of EUR 1.20 per no-par value share for fiscal year 2006.
