annual report


Successful year for COMPUTERLINKS AG in 2007

Munich, 12.03.2008 - The COMPUTERLINKS Group increased turnover by 18.3% to 469.1 million Euro in 2007 (previous year: 396.7 million Euro).  As in previous years the fourth quarter, with turnover of 156.1 million Euro (33% of annual turnover) and an increase of 20% compared to the same period of the previous year, made a significant contribution to total turnover in 2007.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) improved by 17.2 per cent to 19.2 million Euro (previous year: 16.3 million Euro).  The EBITDA margin was 4.1 per cent in 2007 and therefore at exactly the same level as in the previous year. As a result of an improvement in net interest of 0.4 million Euro compared to the previous year, earnings before tax in the past year rose by 18.8% to 18.2 million Euro (previous year: 15.3 million Euro).

Earnings per share of 1.62 Euro were produced compared to 1.31 Euro in the previous year, an increase of 23.8%.

The double-figure increase in profitability resulted in cash flow from operations of 8.6 million Euro.  The Management Board and the Supervisory Board will therefore propose to the Annual General Meeting in 2008 that the dividend be increased to 0.39 Euro per share.

On a quarterly basis the Group increased turnover in the 4th quarter 2007 to over 156 million Euro (previous year: 130.2 million Euro) and produced earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of 8.2 million Euro (previous year: 6.9 million Euro).  The 4th quarter of 2007 alone contributed almost 43% to the annual EBITDA (previous year: 42%).  Earnings per share increased in the 4th quarter of 2007 to 0.70 Euro (previous year's quarter: 0.49 Euro).

Based on a highly successful business year in 2007 the Management Board is well equipped to continue to build on this success in the financial year 2008.
