In the first quarter of 2008 Gamma Holding's turnover increased by 7% to EUR 208 million, including a 6% positive effect due to the acquisition of the Danish company uni-chains and a -5% effect of currency movements. On a comparable basis, turnover increased by 6%.

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.

Turnover growth was posted mainly in Europe. As per 1 January 2008 the Danish company uni-chains A/S is officially part of the business unit.
