9-month report

29.10.2009

Despite recession, Syzygy AG will be able to improve earnings per share in 2009. In the period under review, the Group generated earnings per share of 25 Cent, corresponding to an increase of 19 per cent compared to the first nine months of 2008.

Gross sales were down slightly by 1 per cent to EUR 56.1 million, net sales fell by 6 per cent to EUR 21.7 million. Given a constant rate of exchange, net sales would have been almost identical in 2008 and 2009, gross sales would have improved by 6 per cent.

The general economic situation, currency effects and the end of agency commissions paid by Google impacted the operating income, which fell by 20 per cent to EUR 3 million. The financial income developed positively from EUR 737,000 to EUR 943,000 (+28%). Net income reduced by 4 per cent to EUR 3 million (previous year: EUR 3.1 million).
