Ebookers steht wahrscheinlich (siehe folgendes Interview) vor einer großen strategischen Allianz mit einem Big-Player!!

Ebookers shares surge as Q3 sales soar
(UPDATE: Adds interview with CEO, share price)

By Sudip Kar-Gupta

LONDON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Ebookers.com shares rose sharply in Frankfurt on Monday as the European online travel agency said third quarter sales rose more than three-fold from the same period a year ago.

London-based ebookers said its third quarter sales of $32.6 million were 16 percent ahead of market forecasts. The group added that its loss per share of 4.5 cents in the quarter was 11 percent better than consensus market estimates.

Ebookers had over 740,000 registered users at the end of the third quarter, up from 500,000 at the end of the second, and 7.5 million site visits in the quarter.

Shares rose as much as 34 percent to 10 euros ($8.54) on the Frankfurt Neuer Markt, before paring gains to trade at 8.50 euros by 0901 GMT. Ebookers, which is also listed on Nasdaq, has a market value of around 106 million pounds ($153.3 million), according to Reuters data.

However, the stock is still languishing more than 80 percent below its lifetime high of 46.30 euros posted in March.

Shares suffered around July following speculation that ebookers had cash difficulties, and have also been hit by market instability on the U.S. Nasdaq index.

The company raised $45 million in July to keep its cash flow positive. Ebookers said on Monday it was still on track to reach this target by the fourth quarter of 2001.


EBOOKERS CEO WOULD CONSIDER ALLIANCES :D

Ebookers Chief Executive Dinesh Dhamija said recent negative investor sentiment towards technology stocks was ``obviously disheartening``, and that he would consider alliances that might make the firm reach profitability sooner than expected.

``If we get an alliance, where we think one plus one equals three, we`ll do it,`` he said in an interview.

Dhamija added that ebookers was considering moving into either Portugal or Italy. The group already operates in 11 European countries.

Dhamija is keen on Italy because he feels it has a large online market, and was targeting Portugal because of its tourist connections with Brazil.

He said any acquisition would be in the region of $1.5 million, and would be funded out of its existing cashpile of $51.4 million. Dhamija said the firm had looked at three Italian companies in the last nine months, but had eventually decided against a takeover.

Ebookers bought its parent company Flightbookers for about $15 million earlier this month. The company has also set up a financial services web site called ebookersfinance.com.

Jetzt möchte ich mal die Frage in den Raum stellen, welche Fantasie der Wert im März besaß

(abgesehen von der allgemeinen Übertreibugn zu dieser Zeit), die er heute nicht mehr besitzen sollte??

Zudem hat man die damals bedrückenden Randbedingungen (Liquidität) in den Griff bekommen!!

51,4$ Millionen Dollar Cash sprechen hier für sich!

Hier steckt die Fanatsie!
Alluianz mit AOL ist die Phantasie... Wenn die mit Timer Warner Home Entertainment für ALLE verfügbar machen ist ebookers vorn dabei.
