annual report

26.03.2010

Today, the Management and Supervisory Board of Syzygy AG resolved to propose a dividend of 20 cents at the Annual General Meeting. This is an increase of 5 cents or 33 percent compared to 2009.

In the period under review, Syzygy´s dynamic growth was hampered due to the weak British Pound and the general economic situation. Gross sales of EUR 80.5 million, including the media turnover from the online marketing agencies, were level with last year.

The ongoing weakness of the British Pound had a particularly negative impact on net sales, which were down 9 percent to EUR 28.8 million. Assuming a constant rate of exchange (GBP/EUR), a reduction of 4 percent would have been recorded.

Operating profit (EBITA) fell by 31 percent to EUR 3.6 million. Net income amounted to EUR 3.3 million.

Earnings per share of 28 cents were generated, whereas not-liquidity-related accounting effects in long-term liabilities burdened the outcome by 2 cents per share at the end of period. The Management and Supervisory Board will propose a dividend of 20 cents per share.

Liquid funds and securities amounted to EUR 20.5 million, corresponding to a cash portion of EUR 1.70 per share. With EUR 0.2 million, operating cash flow was below last year´s figure of EUR 9.5 million.

It is expected that Syzygy Group will grow in the current financial year. For 2011, Syzygy is confident to deliver double-digit growth again.
