Cologne (euro adhoc) - 3 September 2008 - InCity Immobilien AG, a group of companies specialised in the planning and realisation of high-quality properties in central urban locations, has today presented its six-monthly report 2008 and confirms the preliminary figures published on 14 August.

In the first six months of 2008, the InCity Group achieved sales of 33.6 million EUR under IFRS. This represents an increase of around 165% compared with the half-year result of 12.7 million EUR in 2007 (under German GAAP - HGB). The total operating performance of the group, corresponding to the sum of sales and changes in inventory, rose to 51.2 million EUR. The operating result (EBIT) improved to 5.6 million EUR in the reporting period. Net profit for the period increased to 2.9 million EUR. At 79.7 million EUR, the group´s total assets as of 30 June 2008 were considerably higher than the year-end figure of 58.2 million EUR. Liquid funds totalled 12.9 million EUR. Despite the payment of a dividend of 625,000 EUR, equity was 12.7 million EUR, considerably above the figure as of 31 December 2007 (10.5 million EUR) due to the positive development of results.

The company currently has orders on hand as well as property projects at the selling and the development stage with a sales volume in excess of 200 million EUR which will be realised in stages over the coming twelve to eighteen months. For 2008 as a whole, the Managing Board is expecting an increase in sales of 44% compared with the previous year to 77 million EUR with a total operating performance of around 90 million EUR, and an improvement in the operating result (EBIT) of over 50% to 11.1 million EUR. The target is to more than double the annual net profit in the financial year 2008 to 6.4 million EUR. Against this background, the Managing Board expects a significant increase in the dividend for the current financial year.

As of today, the half-year report 2008 of InCity Immobilien AG is available in German language on the company´s website at www.incity.ag.
