Dresden, 31 July 2006. Dresdner Factoring AG, one of the leading German providers of factoring services for small to medium-sized companies with annual turnovers of up to EUR5 million, concluded the first half of the year well above plan: the volume of receivables rose to EUR65.5 million, an increase of 49.2% over the first six months of 2005 and 12.6% above plan. At the same time, the profit margin rose to 4.1% in second quarter (first quarter: 3.6%), so that the average margin for the first half of the year was 3.9%. The half-year EBIT came to EUR172.10k, which was a decrease of 8% compared to the same period last year. The reasons for this decrease were the planned costs of our initial public offering and corporate expansion. The Formation of the new sales offices in Berlin-Brandenburg, Baden-Württemberg and North Rhine-Westphalia in the first half of the year was especially successful. The planning target for new contracts was exceeded by 7.7% in the reporting period. Under these circumstances, the management board expects the annual turnover and income to be at the respective target ranges (volume of receivables around EUR140-EUR150 million and EBIT between EUR1,600k and EUR1,800k).  By the foundation of two subsidiaries - DF Steuerberaterfactoring GmbH and DF Anwaltsfactoring GmbH, Dresdner Factoring AG is opening up new distribution channels for the future, addressing the specific needs of lawyers and tax advisors. Apart from the factoring business itself with these professional groups, which needs to be handled differently from the factoring business with other professions, because of regulatory reasons, the company believes that lawyers and tax advisors can also become new multipliers for the company's core business. So far, regulatory environment has made it impossible to provide factoring services to these professional groups with legal certainty; however, changes in legislation have been initiated in the meantime. As soon as conditions allow, Dresdner Factoring AG will become active in this new field.
