Hamburg, February 28, 2008 - As  had  been  expected,  MPC   Münchmeyer  Petersen Capital AG, the  SDAX-listed  wealth  and  asset manager,  fell  short  of  the previous year's record results in fiscal 2007. This was due, on  the  one  hand, to a large number of forward-looking decisions, which will start  to  contribute to profits only in the current fiscal year and, on the  other  hand,  to income from the sale of fund properties generated in the previous   year.  The  approved and ratified consolidated financial statements show sales of EUR 213.7  million, which is 6% below the previous year's EUR 228.4 million. At  EUR  53.1  million, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were down 29% on the  previous  year's EUR 74.6  million.  Consolidated  net  income  for  the  year  after   minorities declined by 31% from EUR 56.0 million to  EUR  38.6   million,  which  represents earnings per share of EUR 3.64 (2006: EUR 5.28). At  their  joint  meeting,  the

@@start.t2@@Management Board and the Supervisory Board decided  to  propose  to  the  Annual General Meeting on April 22, 2008 to pay out a dividend of EUR  3.50  per  share (2006: EUR 5.00).
