-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 31.03.2006 "Positive developments in the first half of the year were followed by an outstanding third quarter," says a pleased feratel CEO Markus Schröcksnadel. From the beginning of November 2005 to the end of January 2006, consolidated sales increased to EUR 6.2 million compared with EUR 5.2 million in financial 2004/2005. For the first nine months of financial 2005/06, consolidated sales thus rose by about 12 % to EUR 12.1 million after EUR 10.8 million in the same period of the previous year. The result from ordinary activities (EBT) for the third quarter increased from EUR 1 million in 2004/2005 to EUR 1.2 million this year. The result from ordinary activities (EBT) for the first three quarters of the current financial year was thus TEUR 161.3 compared with minus TEUR 34.6 in the previous year. "Following a first half of the year that was significantly weaker in accordance with expectations (because sales in Telecommunications are always concentrated in the third and fourth quarters while the overheads are evenly distributed over the year - an effect that is reinforced by sales from the company’s incoming activities, where the focus is currently on the winter tourism market), feratel can thus report an extremely positive third quarter as predicted," Schröcksnadel continues. The magical one million mark With the destinations Werfenweng (Ö), Bad Reichenhall (D) and Bad Ragatz (CH), three new agreements were signed for feratel panorama cams in the period under report. A new record total of 7.3 million page impressions was certified by the official Austrian web analysis organization for December 2005. That was followed by 1.05 million unique clients in January 2006, thus taking the company past the one million mark. Numerous new developments in the IRS Division The IRS developers are currently working at full speed on the relaunch of feratel’s Deskline® Internet applications. As of early summer, they will be available not only in a new look but also with a wealth of new functions and features. Following integration of the CheckEffekt statistics and benchmarking tool, feratel customers can now not only access the relevant web statistics but also analyze the efficiency of their websites. The unique tourism data pool also permits comparisons to be made with similar destinations at the regional, national and international levels. The new feratel offers assistant enables hoteliers to create professional e-mail offers using data from the enquiry pool. In co-operation with the Basle Tourist Office, the IRS Division is currently working on the development of a new group tool, which will enable group travel enquiries including social program requirements to be processed quickly and easily via Deskline®. Additional platforms In the field of content marketing, feratel recruited a number of new platforms. In addition to the panorama cams, Deskline® booking data were also integrated into the www.tirol.com website. feratel cams were incorporated in the websites at www.boardernews.com, www.snowtrex.de, www.news.at and www.snowboarden.de. At www.austria-tourism.at, a meta-search feature was installed in collaboration with other Austrian providers of information and reservation systems. That means all Austrian IRS customers are now accessible with search and reservation functionality via the official platform of the Austrian National Tourist Board. Outlook In view of current developments and today’s positive business environment, feratel remains committed to the goal of further improvements in terms of results and increased sales for financial 2005/2006 as a whole. The record year enjoyed by the tourism industry in 2005 is reflected in increased capital spending activities on the part of tourism organizations in feratel’s core markets. The growing need for information in tourism and the complexity of today’s tourism products and services will continue to drive the spread of modern information technologies in the tourism industry in 2006. ~ 3rd quarter of 2005/2006 in figures (pursuant to IFRS) 3rd quarter 2005/2006 3rd quarter 2004/2005 TEUR TEUR Sales 6,185.7 5,246.6 Income from operations 6,287.9 6,342.0 EBITDA 1,602.2 1,291.0 EBIT 1,204.1 907.8 EBT 1,231.8 1,018.8 The first nine months (1st - 3rd quarters) of 2005/2006 in figures (pursuant to IFRS) 1st-3rd quarters 2005/2006 1st-3rd quarters 2004/2005 TEUR TEUR Sales 12,142.3 10,836.2 Income from operations 12,541.4 12,387.9 EBITDA 1,363.5 1,057.2 EBIT 69.5 -153.1 EBT 161.3 -34.6 ~ end of announcement euro adhoc 31.03.2006 08:08:48 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ots Originaltext: feratel media technologies AG Im Internet recherchierbar: http://www.presseportal.de Further inquiry note: Herr Fritsch Martin Branche: Technology ISIN: AT0000737804 WKN: 615165 Index: Standard Market Auction Börsen: Börse Berlin-Bremen / free trade Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse / free trade Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse / free trade Bayerische Börse / free trade Wiener Börse AG / official dealing
