Ad-hoc: Preliminary Figures for the Short Financial Year 2009
Filderstadt, 25 November 2009 – The preliminary figures presented today for the short financial year of 1 January to 30 September 2009 show that All for One Midmarket AG, which holds a leading position in the German-language SAP midmarket segment, was again able to favourably distance itself from the waning IT market. Although predominantly serving companies from the automotive supplier, machinery and equipment manufacturing industries, which were hardest hit by the crisis, this SAP full-service provider still succeeded in boosting sales in its continuing operations by 3% to EUR 54.7 million (9 months 2008: EUR 53.0 million). Following record investments in new mirrored high-end data centers in 2008, the recurring outsourcing revenues from the continuing operations increased 22% to EUR 21.0 million in the short financial year 2009 and already account for approximately 38% (9 months 2008: 32%) of the total preliminary sales revenues. The preliminary EBITDA for the continuing operations increased by 54% to EUR 3.5 million as compared to the previous year. The corresponding EBIT was EUR 0.8 million (9 months 2008: EUR 0.2 million).
AC-Service (Schweiz) AG is no longer included in above mentioned figures. The 95% equity interest in this company was sold on 1 September 2009 and is reported separately under »discontinued operation«.
The total preliminary earnings after taxes for the short financial year 2009 of EUR 3.3 million (12 months 2008: EUR 1.6 million) also include the discontinued operation’s contributions to earnings. The equity ratio as at 30 September 2009 was 50% (31 December 2008: 45%).
All for One Midmarket AG will be publishing its final consolidated financial statements for the short financial year 2009, including the outlook for the 2009/10 financial year, as scheduled in conjunction with its financial results press conference to be held on 15 December 2009.
