Preliminary group results 2006

Tuesday, 05. December 2006
Edel AG – Ad-hoc Mitteilung

Hamburg - Europe’s leading independent entertainment and music company again reporting an increase in financial results.

Dividend payment planned for the first time.

According to the preliminary results for the financial year 2006 (Oct 1, 2005 – Sep 30, 2006), edel music AG has again improved its financial performance for the third consecutive year. The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) were applied for the first time.

 

Group sales increased to 137.0 million EUR according to IFRS (German GAAP: EUR 166.2 million), up from EUR 129.3 million (German GAAP: EUR 153.4 million) in the year before. The group’s net profit according to IFRS rose to EUR 11.2 million (German GAAP: EUR 11.7 million), it was positively influenced by the necessary capitalization of unused tax losses (additional effect for the year: EUR 5.3 million) due to the consistently positive group results and business perspective. The group’s net result in the previous year had been EUR 2.4 million (German GAAP: EUR 2.2 million) due to an extraordinary effect.

Earnings per share rose to EUR 0.52, up from EUR 0.08 in 2005. EBIT climbed to EUR 11.6 million (German GAAP: EUR 12.3 million) compared to EUR 11.3 million (German GAAP: EUR 11.3 million) in the previous year. EBITDA was EUR 19.3 million (German GAAP: EUR 18.4 million), up from EUR 19.2 million (German GAAP: EUR 18.1 million) in 2005.

Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2006 stood at EUR 12.6 million (September 30, 2005: EUR 15.4 million). This decline is mainly due to regular and extra repayments of EUR 11.0 million to financial institutions by optimal media production GmbH.

Cash flow from operating activities amounted to EUR 16.3 million (2005: EUR 19.8 million), investments came to EUR 10.0 million (2005: EUR 10.5 million). The edel group’s equity increased to approx. EUR 49 million according to IFRS (German GAAP: EUR 45 million), compared to EUR 38 million (German GAAP: 33 million EUR) in the previous year.

Given its sustained favourable performance, edel music AG plans to distribute a dividend to shareholders for the 2006 financial year. EUR 0.20 per share will be paid subject to the approval of the annual general meeting on May 22, 2007.
