Gross profit and EBITDA for Q1/2009 were also up considerably year-on-year: gross profit more than doubled, from 98.5 million euros in Q1/2008 to currently 206.0 million euros, while EBITDA increased to 81.8 million euros vs. Q1/2008 (51.8 million euros). These figures include one-off expenses in the amount of 4.7 million euros. The group result from continued operations - i.e. without the DSL business, which is up for sale - declined year-on-year, from 27.1 million euros to 10.6 million euros due in particular to bank loans taken on as part of the debitel acquisition. A cash flow from operating activities of 115.9 million euros has been generated in Q1/2009. *The previous year´s figures cited here are retrospectively adjusted figures to reflect the switch in reporting the costs of customer acquisition and retention, and the application of IFRS 5 for `discontinued operations´.
