Advanced Medien announces preliminary results for fiscal year 2002: - Revenues down to EUR 9.8 million - Result burdened by amortization and value adjustments

Munich, March 20, 2003 - Advanced Medien AG continued its consolidation strategy during the past fiscal year. According to the preliminary consolidated financial statements, the guarded purchasing behavior with regard to motion picture rights and the continuing weak market in the field of film licenses resulted in a reduction in consolidated revenues to EUR 9.8 million, down from EUR 19.5 million for the previous year. Of this amount, EUR 1.9 million (previous year: EUR 9.6 million) in revenues were recorded in Germany and EUR 7.9 million (previous year: EUR 9.9 million) abroad. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was EUR 12.0 million, up from EUR 10.8 million in 2001. This was mainly due to EUR 7.9 million in other operating income (previous year: EUR 1.8 million). This increase can be explained mainly by reversals of accruals, especially provisions for potential losses, in the amount of EUR 3.7 million and write-ups of film assets of EUR 4.9 million. Following the deduction of amortization worth EUR 16.9 million, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) improved to EUR -5.0 million, up from EUR -16.0 million for the previous fiscal year. The amortization amounts mainly consist of amortization of film assets in the amount of EUR 15.0 million and the full amortization of the remaining goodwill in the partially owned subsidiary U.F.O. Unified Film Organization, LLC. in the amount of EUR 1.8 million. The consolidated net loss for the year was EUR 6.0 million (previous year: EUR 17.5 million).
