MEDION AG: Ad hoc announcement in accordance with § 15 of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG)

Q2 2007 Preliminary figures

 

MEDION AG: Earnings for Q2 and H1 2007 significantly above previous year’s level


MEDION AG is stating that earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) will improve from €0.6 million in the prior-year period to approximately €2.5 million in the second quarter of 2007. Earnings before taxes will see an even greater increase from €0.2 million in 2006 to approximately €3.2
million in Q2 2007. As expected, sales will not reach the previous year’s level. However, sales will decline less

than assumed at the beginning of the year. After €364.1

million in Q2 2006, sales will reach approximately €310 million in Q2 2007. The clear increase in earnings was

achieved largely due to savings in cost of materials and  

successful overall cost management. EBIT for the first six months of 2007 will increase from €4.6 million in 2006 to approximately €7.1 million, while earnings before taxes will double from €3.6 million to approximately €7.7 million.
 

 

The complete report on the first half of 2007 will be presented on August
9, 2007 as announced.
