Bad Soden, March 31, 2009: TRIPLAN AG (ISIN: DE 0007499303/Prime Standard) closed the business year 2008 with a broad increase in revenues and rentability. The group boosted its revenues by 6.6 percent from 44.1 million euro by 2.9 million euro up to 47.0 million euro in the reporting period (January 1st, - December 31st, 2008).

With an increase of 10.3 percent, the group EBIT outperformed the comparable amount of the previous year by 273 TEUR and rose up to 2.9 million euro. This answers to a light improvement of TRIPLAN´s EBIT-margin, that rose from 6.1 percent up to 6.2 percent in the year-to-year comparison.

Net profit after share of profit of other shareholders and at-equity results/losses rose by 30.9 percent from 2,042 TEUR by 631 TEUR up to 2,673 TEUR.  This answers to an improvement of the earnings per share (diluted/undiluted) from 0.21 euro by 33.3 percent up to 0.28 euro.

With this development in revenues and profit, the Management Board outperformed the forecasted revenues in the amount of 44.5 million euro and achieved the Ebit in the amount of 2.9 million euro.
