finances/Financial Report

Hamburg, 10 January 2008 (euro adhoc) - SinnerSchrader started the 2007/2008 financial year as planned, with revenue growth of nearly 14 per cent and an operating margin of 6.2 per cent in the first quarter (1 September to 30 November 2007). Moreover, incoming orders which were 30 per cent above the previous year's level have helped lay a solid foundation for future business.

In the first quarter of 2007/2008, SinnerSchrader achieved revenues of EUR 5.4 million. The growth in revenues was fuelled by the dynamic development of the media business. Strong growth in the German market for online advertising had an impact also on the media budgets managed by SinnerSchrader, which rose 45 per cent compared to the previous year. Existing customers were very important to the development of revenues in the first quarter, among them those customers that SinnerSchrader had acquired as new customers in the past financial year. In addition, SinnerSchrader began work on a project for a renowned German company in the logistics industry.

The operating result (EBITA) amounted to EUR 0.3 million in the first quarter, thus reaching the level of the previous year despite the final charges associated with the introduction of a new organisational model. The consolidated income came to EUR 0.3 million, which was nearly 34 per cent above the previous year. The consolidated income per share was EUR 0.03, or EUR 0.01 higher than the year before.

As of 30 November 2007, SinnerSchrader had a liquidity reserve of EUR 11.0 million, which was EUR 0.5 million higher than on 31 August 2007. The equity ratio amounted to 73 per cent in the first quarter.

SinnerSchrader views its business development in the first quarter as a good starting point for achieving its goals for the year as a whole: revenue growth of 15 per cent to reach over EUR 21 million and an EBITA of EUR 1.8 to EUR 1.9 million. A dividend in the amount of EUR 0.12 per share, which was paid for the first time in December 2007, can therefore also be expected for the 2007/2008 financial year. Based on the current state of knowledge, such a dividend payment would once again be paid from the tax-recognised contribution account.
