mediantis AG: operating result considerably improved in first half year - overall result negatively impacted by complete write-off of non-operating participations

Munich, August 31, 2001 - mediantis AG considerably improved its operating result in the first half of 2001 due to further growth and significant optimisation of cost structure. The overall result of the first half-year is, however, strongly impacted by the one-off write-offs of non-operating participations.

At DEM 19.2 million sales at mediantis AG rose by 13% (first half of 2000: DEM 17.1 million). Although sales developed less rapidly than expected, the operating result improved considerably, as scheduled. The operating loss EBIT declined by 28% to DEM -8.8 million (DEM -12.3 million). The EBIT margin dropped from -72% to -46%. EBITDA improved by 40% to DEM -6.2 million (DEM -10.5 million). The EBITDA margin halved from -61% to -32%. The reasons for the positive development of cost structure are to be found primarily in the increase of marketing performance and the considerable improvement of purchase margins from 24% to 35%.

The significant improvement of the operating result was not able to compensate for the negative financial result of the first six months. Whilst a positive financial result of DEM 7.5 million was recorded in the first half of the previous year, the overall result of the reporting period is impacted by a negative financial result of DEM -7.2 million. The financial result is comprised of total of price gains and losses from a special fund of DEM -1.1 million, which has meanwhile been dissolved, and of the complete write-off of financial assets of DEM 6.1 million. Here, pre-IPO participations were written off to 0 as they cannot be sold currently. It can be assumed that sales can be generated at a later point in time. mediantis AG`s radical write-off policy was based on the principle of caution and ends the negative trend of the financial result. The result for the period thus was DEM -16 million. As at June 30, 2001, mediantis AG held a liquidity reserve of DEM 22,6 million.
