The P&I group achieves earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of 9.8 million euros for fiscal 2005/2006 (1 April, 2005 to 31 March, 2006) (previous year: 5.2 million euros), boosting the EBIT margin from 11.6 percent in the previous year to the present 19.6 percent. Occasioned by agreement reached on the dissolution of a pension scheme, P&I had already raised its interim forecast on 2 March of this year from the original six million euros to 7.5 million euros. P&I group sales have reached 50 million euros. P&I’s sales figures target was an increase of five to ten percent on the previous year’s 45 million euros.

Factors determining the increase in the result were, for one, a rise in sales in year-end business. And in contrast to the previous year, negative impact on earnings of anticipated operating risks was averted. After the strong third quarter, P&I was able to maintain its high level of sales. Also contributing to the improvement of the operating result was the development of large-scale projects. Their progress was considerably more positive than had been predicted.

For its earnings after tax (EAT) the P&I group can announce an improvement in its result, rising from 3.4 million euros to 7.5 million euros. This is due, among other reasons, to the bonus effect arising from an audit by the fiscal authorities. A value adjustment on a loan made to a foreign subsidiary was recognised as a deductible operating expense, leading to an increase in earnings of half a million euros. In addition, the tax burden turned out to be lower than in the previous year, as the positive results shown by the foreign companies did not attract any tax charge due to the partially accumulated loss carry-forwards.

The profit per share amounted to 96 cents, almost 119 percent above the previous year’s level of 44 cents. The forecast for earnings after tax for P&I Personal & Informatik AG, Wiesbaden is 6.7 million euros. The foregoing figures remain subject to the annual auditor’s final audit. The definitive figures will be announced at the Balance Sheet Press Conference on 22 June, 2006.
