Zürich (euro adhoc) - In the first half of 2007, revenue increased by 22% growth to EUR 27.74 million (vs. EUR 22.78 million first half 2006). Due to the difficult circumstances in the reporting period, EBIT earnings before interest and tax amounted to EUR 2.1 million down from EUR 2.78 million recorded in the same period last year.

With the appointment of Ms. Christine Bogner as the new Chief Financial Officer of AMITELO AG, this important vacancy in the Group will be filled by 15th October 2007. Ms. Bogner brings wealth of experience and competence to AMITELO. She joins from the former BenQ Mobile Group where she has had responsibility in a senior role within the Finance department. Prior to this assignment Ms. Bogner spent several years in the finance units of SIEMENS Mobile Com Devices in Munich.

One of the world's leading international auditing companies, Ernst & Young AG based in Zurich, has agreed to become the statutory auditor of AMITELO AG and its main subsidiaries.
