quarterly or semiannual financial statement
feratel sales up by 12 % in the first three quarters of 2005/2006

  Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc.
  The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement.
"Positive developments in the first half of the year were followed by
an outstanding third quarter," says a pleased feratel CEO Markus
Schröcksnadel. From the beginning of November 2005 to the end of
January 2006, consolidated sales increased to EUR 6.2 million
compared with EUR 5.2 million in financial 2004/2005. For the first
nine months of financial 2005/06, consolidated sales thus rose by
about 12 % to EUR 12.1 million after EUR 10.8 million in the same
period of the previous year.  The result from ordinary activities
(EBT) for the third quarter increased from EUR 1 million in 2004/2005
to EUR 1.2 million this year. The result from ordinary activities
(EBT) for the first three quarters of the current financial year was
thus TEUR 161.3 compared with minus TEUR 34.6 in the previous year.
"Following a first half of the year that was significantly weaker in
accordance with expectations (because sales in Telecommunications are
always concentrated in the third and fourth quarters while the
overheads are evenly distributed over the year - an effect that is
reinforced by sales from the company’s incoming activities, where the
focus is currently on the winter tourism market), feratel can thus
report an extremely positive third quarter as predicted,"
Schröcksnadel continues.  The magical one million mark With the
destinations Werfenweng (Ö), Bad Reichenhall (D) and Bad Ragatz (CH),
three new agreements were signed for feratel panorama cams in the
period under report.   A new record total of 7.3 million page
impressions was certified by the official Austrian web analysis
organization for December 2005. That was followed by 1.05 million
unique clients in January 2006, thus taking the company past the one
million mark.  Numerous new developments in the IRS Division The IRS
developers are currently working at full speed on the relaunch of
feratel’s Deskline® Internet applications. As of early summer, they
will be available not only in a new look but also with a wealth of
new functions and features.   Following integration of the
CheckEffekt statistics and benchmarking tool, feratel customers can
now not only access the relevant web statistics but also analyze the
efficiency of their websites. The unique tourism data pool also
permits comparisons to be made with similar destinations at the
regional, national and international levels.  The new feratel offers
assistant enables hoteliers to create professional e-mail offers
using data from the enquiry pool. In co-operation with the Basle
Tourist Office, the IRS Division is currently working on the
development of a new group tool, which will enable group travel
enquiries including social program requirements to be processed
quickly and easily via Deskline®.   Additional platforms In the field
of content marketing, feratel recruited a number of new platforms. In
addition to the panorama cams, Deskline® booking data were also
integrated into the website. feratel cams were
incorporated in the websites at,, and At, a
meta-search feature was installed in collaboration with other
Austrian providers of information and reservation systems. That means
all Austrian IRS customers are now accessible with search and
reservation functionality via the official platform of the Austrian
National Tourist Board.  Outlook In view of current developments and
today’s positive business environment, feratel remains committed to
the goal of further improvements in terms of results and increased
sales for financial 2005/2006 as a whole. The record year enjoyed by
the tourism industry in 2005 is reflected in increased capital
spending activities on the part of tourism organizations in feratel’s
core markets. The growing need for information in tourism and the
complexity of today’s tourism products and services will continue to
drive the spread of modern information technologies in the tourism
industry in 2006.  ~  3rd quarter of 2005/2006 in figures (pursuant
