Cologne, 3 August 2005 - DocCheck(R) AG, Cologne, (ISIN DE0005471007 // Symbol 547100), previously antwerpes ag, has achieved sales totalling 2.9 million euro in the 2nd quarter of the financial year 2005. This corresponds to an increase of 5 per cent when compared to the same period in the previous year (2.8 million euro).

In the first six months sales increased by 6 per cent, rising from 5.2 million euro to 5.5 million euro. In the DocCheck(R) division a sales increase of 55 per cent was achieved, rising from 2.0 million euro to 3.1 million euro when compared to the first six months of 2004. Sales in the Communication division totalled 2.4 million euro which represented a drop of 24 per cent when compared to sales in the same period in the previous year. Profits from several new business leads in the 2nd quarter will pave the way for a slight recovery by the Communication division in the second half of the year.

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) amount to 0.11 million euro in the 2nd quarter, compared to 0.08 million euro in the previous year's quarter. Therefore in the first six months of 2005 an EBIT of 0.12 million euro (0.09 million euro) was achieved.

As a result of the special dividend of 14.8 million euro and the lower interest yield, the result from ordinary business activities dropped slightly by  0.10 million euro, going down from 0.49 million euro to 0.39 million euro. Profit per share amounts to 4 cent.

With 16.1 million euro or 2.73 euro per share, the total amount of liquid funds and current-asset securities achieved the same level as that for the 1st quarter of 2005 (16.1 million euro). The dividend payment of 0.4 million euro or 8 cent per share on 16.06.2005 has already been taken into account here.
