annual report


The financial year 2007/08 of phion was marked by a dynamic expansion policy. Net sales were increased by some 38% to more than 7.8 million Euros. In addition to significantly higher costs of goods and services purchased, compared to last year, especially costs (according to plan) for extended marketing activities in the new countries as well as for the recruitment of new staff had their effects upon the overall expenses. phion´s EBITDA (income before depreciation and amortization) in the financial year 2007/08 amounts to -803,129 Euros (previous year: 651,000 Euros); operating income (EBIT) as a consequence of regular depreciation was -1.64 million Euros (previous year: 69,600 Euros), EBT (due to the favourable interest income) was -1.28 million Euros (previous year: 25,000 Euros). Total assets of phion increased from 6 million Euros to 20.7 million Euros as per 31st March 2008. The equity ratio of the company as per end of the financial year was just below 70%.

Wieland Alge, CEO of phion: "The objective of the IPO was a strong capital basis by means of which we can expand our market position significantly through a strong organic growth and through acquisitions. By acquiring Visonys on 16th June and with the activities set after the IPO aimed at entering new, big markets, we are proceeding even faster than planned. We expect our initiatives in these new markets - which naturally implicated the corresponding costs - to have their first positive impacts on the earnings side after 12 to 15 months."
