Despite the disadvantageous, macro-economic framework, a boost of the net income by 34% in the second quarter 2009 has been recorded, compared to last year´s reference period. Furthermore, the second quarter usually tends to be weakest quarter of the industry cycle.

Considering a quarterly basis, revenues of the second quarter of FY 2009 have been increased by approx. 5% to EUR 6 million (previous year: EUR 5,7 million). EBIT of the second quarter of FY 2009 amounts to EUR 0.473 million, being equivalent to an increase of 7% compared with last year´s reference period. Net income has been increased by remarkable 34% compared with the previous year. Net income of the second quarter amounts to EUR 0.217 million (previous year: EUR 0.162 million).@@end@@

Management set the course for the top products of 2009, the expansion of the distribution structure, and the release of "ArcaniA - A Gothic Tale" in FY 2010.

The strongest title of FY 2009 "Yoga" for Nintendo® Wii™ will go on sale in November 2009. The Austrian concept for "Yoga" counts among the most innovative software products. As opposed to other fitness- and sport games for the Nintendo® Wii™, "Yoga" pursues an entirely different approach. The emphasis is put on the "deceleration" of everyday life, ensuring a relaxing game experience without stress. The response from consumers and media is astonishing.
