Bad Oeynhausen, 18 January 2010 - By returning to profitability and securing its funding in the fall of 2009, Balda AG has pulled off a brilliant performance in its share price development. The shares of the mobile phone supplier, listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, opened in 2009 at a price of 0.52 euros. In the course of the year the price of the stock exploded by 571 percent and at year-end amounted to 3.49 euros. This comeback made the stock to one of the upward climbers of the year in the Prime Standard segment. The stock continues its good performance in 2010 (closing price on Friday, 15 January 2010: 3,89 euros). 2009 Balda trade volume (Frankfurt and Xetra) totalled approximately 48.6 million shares. With the publication of the turnaround, the stock market turnover in the fourth quarter alone amounted to approximately 23.3 million shares or 63.1 million euros.
