Eching, Munich, May 2, 2006. Kontron AG, one of the world’s leading
manufacturers of embedded computer systems, generated sales of EUR 86.6
million in the first quarter of 2006. This represents a gain of 39 percent over the
same period last year (EUR 62.3 million). Orders on hand, which had already
reached a record level on December 31, 2005, at a total of EUR 151 million, once
again set a new record in company history at EUR 176 million. Order entry in the
first quarter amounted to EUR 112 million by comparison with just under EUR 70
million in the prior year period. This represents a gain of 60 percent. In the first
quarter, operating earnings (EBIT) rose by a disproportionate measure against
sales growth, by 45 percent to EUR 5.1 million, over EUR 3.5 million in the same
period last year. Surplus for the period increased accordingly to EUR 3.4 million
over EUR 2.6 million in the first quarter of 2005.
Operating cash flow, which was recorded at EUR -2.6 million in the same period
last year, rose to EUR 5.4 million. This boosted net liquidity in the first quarter by
EUR 3.7 million to 17.7 million, while the cash and liquid funds position rose to
EUR 56.5 million. Kontron AG management confirmed the forecast of achieving a
minimum of 10 percent sales growth, and even stronger earnings (EBIT) growth
in the 2006 business year. In this context, the corporation intends to fully
concentrate on organic growth and increase liquidity, without any further
acquisitions.
