Bremen, 22 August 2002. Energiekontor AG earned sales revenue amounting to EUR 29.425 million in the first six months of the current financial year (01.01.to 30.06.2002). In comparison with the corresponding period in the previous year this means that the company managed to increase its turnover by about 31% (30.06.2001: EUR 22.515 million). The earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) amounted to EUR 1.028 million (30.06.2001: EUR 3.162 million). The earnings from ordinary activities amounted to EUR 1.461 million, (31.06.2001: EUR 3.660 million). The consolidated result at 30.06.2002 amounted to EUR 917,000 (30.06.2001: EUR 2.321 million).

The higher profit-to-sales ratio as of 30.06.2001 compared with the previous year is the result of an above-average high proportion of service and sales revenues with large margins, compared with total revenues coming in the first half of the year.
