annual report


Zug/Switzerland, April 28, 2008 - FORTUNE Management Inc. (General Standard, ISIN USU026281027; SIN: A0BLYY) had preliminary revenues of 157,716 TEUR in the financial year 2007 (2006: 47,425 TEUR). The increase in revenues was due to the launch of the two biodiesel plants Neckermann Renewables Wittenberg GmbH and Biodiesel Enns GmbH & Co. KG. The preliminary EBIT after extraordinary charges was -196,281 TEUR (financial year 2006: 20,681 TEUR), resulting in a preliminary result after tax of - 148,825 TEUR (2006: 22,803 TEUR).

The preliminary results were influenced mainly by the biodiesel segment, in particular the revaluation of the biodiesel activities following IAS 36 (Impairment of Assets), which was caused by the significant deterioration in the economic and political environment for biodiesel.

The preliminary total assets on December 31st amounted to 238,613 TEUR (2006: 365,667 TEUR). As a result of the above mentioned factors the preliminary consolidated equity fell to -58,600 TEUR (2006: 89,622 TEUR). The liquid funds of Fortune Management Inc. on December 31st were 23,571 TEUR (2006: 31,002 TEUR). As Fortune Management Inc. is registered under the law of the State of Delaware (US) the company can continue to operate, despite its negative consolidated equity.

Consequently, the Company has launched several restructuring initiatives that target a far reaching reorganisation of the entire group with a view to protecting its profitable assets. With the assistance of the experts of Alvarez & Marsal, several restructuring alternatives have been developed and are currently being negotiated with the different stakeholders of the Company.
