companies/finances/Quarterly report

Cuxhaven (euro adhoc) - Cuxhaven, May 4, 2009 - The wind-farm planner Plambeck Neue Energien AG has completed the first quarter of the 2009 fiscal year successfully. Compared with the previous year's period, the overall performance was increased by around 212% from 28.4 mill. Euro to 88.9 mill. Euro as per March 31, 2009. In the operational results (EBIT), the decisive characteristic for a wind-farm planner, the company also achieved a considerable rise to a new figure of 7.2 mill. Euro following 1.2 mill. Euro in the previous year's period. In this way, Plambeck Neue Energien AG achieved earning before taxes (EBT) to the amount of 5.3 mill. Euro and was thus able to exceed the previous year's result of 0.6 mill. Euro quite clearly. All told, the group profits as per March 31, 2009, amounted to around 5.2 mill. Euro (previous year: 0.6 mill. Euro). This corresponds to an undiluted showing per share of 0.12 Euro (previous year: 0.01 Euro).

The reason for the positive development of Plambeck Neue Energien AG in the first quarter of 2009 is the clear growth in the central business of wind-farm projecting. In the first three months of the present fiscal year, a total of five wind-farms were completed and taken into operation. A total of 42 wind-energy systems with a total output of 84 MW were set up at the Buchholz, Calau, Langwedel, Leddin and Schwienau II locations.

Martin Billhardt, Chairman of the Board of Plambeck Neue Energien AG, sees a confirmation of the company's course in the figures. "The good figures are the pleasing result of our successful work in the previous years; after all, the development of a wind-farm takes up a period of three to five years. Our employees have done a very good job." The Board of Directors sees a further success factor in the business model. "Against the background of the Renewable Energies Act, which was amended at the start of 2009, wind energy provides attractive income which can be planned in the long term - especially in the current phase of the economy, an important sales argument. On the basis of this quarterly result we confirm our prognosis on the EBIT of 29 to 33 mill. Euro in fiscal year 2009." In the first half-year, it is above all the completion of optimised onshore wind-farms which contributes to the business success.

An extensive overview of the results of the first quarter of 2009 is provided by the quarterly report of the company, published today, which is available under www.pne.de in the Investor Relations sector.
