First quarter 2006: Earnings more than doubled Financial year 2006: 300 new jobs 2005: Earnings up to 19 per cent, 694 new jobs

Our expectations for the first quarter of financial year 2006 have been fully met. Fielmann achieved external sales of EUR 226 million (+ 14.2 per cent), Group sales totaling EUR 192 million (+ 13.8 per cent) and earnings totaling EUR 25 million (+ 148.7 per cent). In the first quarter of 2005, we invested more than EUR 20 million in the market launch of the glasses for free insurance scheme: this was a remunerative investment. In the current financial year, the cost of promotion is 27 per cent lower and we have also been able to improve our structures.

At its most recent meeting, the Fielmann AG Supervisory Board adopted the annual and consolidated accounts. As the market leader, Fielmann achieved external sales amounting to EUR 843 million (+ 10.3 per cent) and consolidated sales totalling EUR 733 million (+ 9.7 per cent). Pre-tax profit rose to EUR 87.0 million (+ 14.5 per cent) and net income for the year stood at EUR 57.8 million (+ 19.3 per cent). The Supervisory Board and the Management Board will recommend a dividend payment of EUR 1.90 per share (+ 18.8 per cent) to the Annual General Meeting on 6 July 2006. In 2005, we created 684 new jobs.

For 2006, Fielmann plans to significantly increase sales and profit, by opening 25 new branches and creating over 300 new jobs.
