Innsbruck, 24 November 2009 - Sales revenues of phion AG, one of the leading European suppliers of solutions to protect corporate communication, have stabilized during the second quarter of the current financial year 2009/10 after the market-related strong decline in the first quarter (-20%). In total, sales volume decreased by 9.5%, compared to the first half year 2008/09. The lower level of sales in the financial year 2009/10 so far are also reflected by the first half year earnings: EBITDA was -1.4 million Euros, EBIT -2.2 million Euros (depreciation and amortization amounted to some 0.8 million Euros), whereas total comprehensive income (TCI) showed a minus of 1.9 million Euros. The balance sheet total of phion AG as at end of September 2009 was reduced to 18.7 million Euros (31 March 2009: 21 million Euros). In line with the development of the results, liquid assets have decreased to 3.6 million Euros. Deferred income (i.e., secured invoiced revenues realized later on) has continued its positive development, amounting to a total of almost 4.2 million Euros as at 30 September 2009. Financial liabilities were further reduced to the very low level of some 1.1 million Euros. Consolidated equity amounts to 10.9 million Euros, corresponding to a still considerable equity ratio of more than 58%. Regarding the overall outlook, the management clearly shows more optimism than for the first half year: From the current point of view, the economy is already recovering, especially concerning the key account industries of phion, and managers no longer suspend purchase decisions. For the second half year, at this point a significantly better and more stable environment is therefore expected. phion´s new orders for the coming months also seem to prove the positive tendency.
