6-month report


Bad Soden, July 28th, 2009: TRIPLAN AG (ISIN: DE 0007499303/Prime Standard) releases its preliminary results for the first six months 2009. The group boosted its revenues in the period Janury 1st to June 30th 2009 by 4.3 percent from 22,782 TEUR up to 23,771 TEUR. The Engineering segment contributed 22,454 TEUR (previous year: 21,285 TEUR), the Technology Services segment contributed 1,531 TEUR (previous year: 1,640 TEUR) to the group revenues. The overall performance was 24,884 TEUR (previous year: 23,876 TEUR) as at June 30th 2009.

EBIT declined in the reporting period by 52.9 percent from 1,839 TEUR down to 866 TEUR. The decline is affected by two substantial factors. One the one hand, previous year results included a clearing of large-scale projects, one the other hand, it is not possible - due to the current market position - to put through high margins like in the last year. The EBIT margin amounts 3.5 percent (previous year: 7,7 percent) at balance sheet day.

With a total balance sheet of 24,539 TEUR the equity ratio amounts as at June 30th 2009 64.0 percent after 56.3 percent in the previous year. At balance sheet day, the groups cash position is 5,223 TEUR (previous year: 6,031 TEUR). In the reporting period the management board pushed the international alignment of the company by the opening of offices in Neustadt (an der Donau) and Renens (Switzerland). Besides the support of existing customers the management board uses the new offices as sales agencies to force the future growth of TRIPLAN. With the positioning in the branches Life Science, Refinery/Petrochemical, Chemical/Industrial and Energy, the group is well positioned to operate sustainable in a challenging market.

The mid term report can be downloaded in the internet on August 13th 2009 under in the investor relations segment.
