annual report


Vienna, 12.4.2007 - For Unternehmens Invest AG (UIAG), a company listed in the prime market of the Vienna Stock Exchange, the fiscal year 2006 ended with a profit on ordinary activities of EUR 10.3 m (2005: EUR 205 t). The profit for the year amounted to EUR 12.0 m (after EUR 3.6 m in 2005), which is an increase of more than three times compared to the previous year.

Based on this very positive result, the Board of Management will propose to the Annual General Meeting a dividend distribution in the amount of EUR 1 per share for the fiscal year 2006 (2005: EUR 0.44). The Board of Management would like to point out that shareholders who accept the public tender offer of CROSS Industries AG after the dividend payment (ex-dividend day) will only receive EUR 14.46, which is the amount reduced by the dividend payment for 2006.

In the year 2006 UIAG achieved one of the best results over the past ten years. It was marked by the successful sale of the shares in BENE AG and the acquisitions of an investment in FUTURELAB Holding GmbH and the hot water heating systems specialist, Austria Email AG, within a consortium led by UIAG.

Current assets increased from EUR 25.4 m to EUR 28.4 m. Liquid funds amounted to EUR 21.3 m at the balance sheet date (after EUR 15.1 m at the end of 2005). Due to the high level of liquid funds, UIAG is ideally equipped to continue its successful path in 2007 with an expansion of the investment portfolio. Several attractive investment projects are currently in a phase of detailed analysis and discussion.

Major shareholder with a share capital of 55.98% in UIAG is Cross Industries AG, followed by 3 Banken Beteiligung GmbH with a share capital of 19.70%. The free float of the company amounts to 24.32% of the share capital. CROSS Industries expressly stated that UIAG will continue to be listed in the prime market of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

The annual financial statements of the company will be issued on April 12, 2007 and will be available as of this date on the homepage of UIAG: www.uiag.at. The Annual General Meeting takes place on May 7, 2007 at 3 pm in Vienna.
