EBITA amounted to EUR 17.0 million. Currency movements had an effect of -13%. On a comparable basis EBITA rose by 11%.

Net group result decreased by EUR 0.8 million to EUR 9.2 million, mainly due to higher financing expenses. Adjusted to take account for currency effects of EUR -1.4 million, net group result has risen by 6% compared to last year.

As indicated before, the acquisition of uni-chains is expected to positively contribute to the net result as from 2009.
