Financial Figures/Balance Sheet

Hamburg, 14 October 2010 (euro adhoc) - SinnerSchrader ended the 2009/2010 financial year (1 September 2009 to 31 August 2010) with a record fourth quarter. Based on preliminary, as yet unaudited figures from the Annual Financial Statements, SinnerSchrader´s net revenues increased in the fourth quarter of the 2009/2010 financial year by over 25 per cent against those of the year before, reaching around EUR 6.8 million. The operating result (EBITA) for the quarter will probably considerably surpass the EUR 1 million mark and will thus be well over 50 per cent higher than in the previous year.

The surprisingly strong economic recovery in Germany, the rapid digitisation of marketing, and SinnerSchrader´s recognised position as a leading digital agency gave a significant boost to business with new customers. In the fourth quarter, SinnerSchrader generated around 23 per cent of its revenues with customers for whom the company was not yet working one year ago, including babywalz, the Gucci Group, s.Oliver, and Versatel. Incoming orders in the fourth quarter of 2009/2010 surpassed those of the previous year by 37 per cent.

SinnerSchrader has therefore probably reached its targets for the 2009/2010 financial year. Net revenues will amount to around EUR 23.9 million, which means that growth in revenues will exceed previous year´s rate. The operating result (EBITA) will surpass the EUR 2 million mark, which is an improvement of more than EUR 0.6 million compared to the year before.

The new business fields of ad serving and e-commerce outsourcing in which SinnerSchrader invested last year have already contributed around EUR 1.5 million to the net revenues of the financial year. As expected, additional operative start-up losses amounting to over EUR 1 million were incurred, without which the EBITA would have been more than EUR 3 million.

Consolidated income will amount to around EUR 1.1 million, resulting in earnings per share of about EUR 0.10. Based on this, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board will again propose a dividend of EUR 0.08 per share to the Annual General Meeting on 16 December 2010. This would once again be paid from the tax-recognised contribution account and would thus be tax-free for private individuals with minor holdings.

As of the balance sheet date on 31 August 2010, the liquidity reserve amounted to EUR 8.3 million and was thus EUR 0.3 million higher than a year ago. The SinnerSchrader Group had 305 employees on the reporting date.

The final audited Consolidated Financial Statements for 2009/2010 and a forecast for the 2010/2011 financial year will be published on 9 November 2010. This is also the date of SinnerSchrader´s annual balance sheet press conference in Hamburg.
