Consolidated sales up 19.4 percent to EUR 13.4 million Online advertising up 29 percent to EUR 7.7 million

Munich, 11 May 2006. TOMORROW FOCUS AG (SIN 549532), one of Germany’s leading Internet portal operators, reports EUR 13.4 million in sales revenue in the first three months of the current financial year, or a 19.4 percent increase on the previous year’s EUR 11.3 million.

TOMORROW FOCUS AG’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in the first quarter of the current financial year 2006 totaled EUR 0.4 million, or a significant improvement on the previous year’s EUR 0.1 million. Earnings before taxes (EBT) at EUR 0.03 million were around EUR 0.15 million up on the previous year.

In the Portal division, TOMORROW FOCUS AG’s sales in the first three months of the current financial year totaled EUR 8.0 million, or a 17 percent increase on the previous year. Sales growth in TOMORROW FOCUS AG’s core business online advertising was up by around 29 percent and was therefore significantly stronger than that of comparable firms in the segment. Earnings before taxes (EBT) in the first quarter of 2006 were EUR 0.7 mil-lion, equivalent to 32 percent year-on-year growth (previous year: EUR 0.5 million).

In the Technology division, TOMORROW FOCUS AG booked external sales totaling EUR 2 million (previous year: EUR 1.2 million). Earnings after taxes fell in the first quarter, due to start-up losses posted by travelnet cruise GmbH, to EUR -0.3 million from EUR -0.2 million.

In Equity Investments, which comprises the activities of subsidiaries BELLEVUE AND MORE and PLAYBOY Germany, first-quarter sales were EUR 3.4 million after EUR 3.2 million in the previous year. Earnings before taxes increased by 72 percent to EUR 0.5 million (previous year: EUR 0.27 million).

With growth in online advertising and modified cooperation with partner Mi-crosoft/MSN we look forward from 2007 to a flexible potential for coopera-tion with new partners. In the coming quarters, enlarging TOMORROW FO-CUS AG’s valuable brand portfolio and the long-term improvement of profit margins will be the focus of attention.
