Profit increase compared to 2004 - Board of Management proposes unchanged dividend distribution for 2005 - Expansion of investment portfolio

Vienna, 11.4.2006 - For Unternehmens Invest AG (UIAG), a company listed in the prime market of the Vienna Stock Exchange, the fiscal year 2005 ended with a profit on ordinary activities of EUR 205 t (2004: EUR 171 t). Based on the profit for the year, which was EUR 3.6 m (after EUR 5.4 m), the Board of Management will propose to the Annual General Meeting a dividend distribution unchanged to the prior year in the amount of EUR 0.44 per share for the fiscal year 2005. Current assets increased from EUR 21.9 m to EUR 25.4 m. Liquid funds amounted to EUR 15.1 m at the balance sheet date (after EUR 18.5 m at the end of 2004), which are available for the expansion of the investment portfolio of UIAG.

The year 2005 is marked by UIAG’s investment in EFKON AG, a global leader providing fully automatic toll collection systems, the successful sale of the shares in Wiener Börse AG and Preh GmbH, an automotive component supplier, as well as the exit from ET Multimedia AG. The companies of our existing investment portfolio, in particular Austria’s leading office furniture manufacturer, BENE AG, developed very favourably.

An expansion of the investment portfolio of UIAG is planned for the current business year. Only recently, UIAG announced that an agreement was signed for an investment in FUTURELAB Holding GmbH, the leading Austrian laboratory group providing medical diagnostic services, with subsidiaries in Eastern and Western Europe. Apart from the founders, the insurance company Wiener Städtische Allgemeine Versicherung AG also holds one third of the shares in this company. In addition, several attractive investment projects are currently being analysed.

The shareholder structure of UIAG is as follows: Cross Industries AG 25.8%, 3 Banken Beteiligung GmbH and RZB Private Equity Holding 15.7% each, BA-CA 13%. The free float of the company is 29.8% of the share capital.

The annual financial statements of the company will be issued on April 11, 2006 and will be available as of this date on the homepage of UIAG: www.uiag.at.
