Third-quarter revenue was up by 1.7% year-on-year (Euro 1.1  million)  to  reach
Euro 66.8 million. This increase was mainly due to the start-up  of  care  homes
in Braunschweig and Wachtendonk. Capacity at existing  Curanum  facilities  also
reported a pleasing trend in the third quarter,  reaching  the  previous  year's
level.

The personnel expense increased at a disproportionately faster rate of 4%  (Euro
1.3  million)  in  the  third  quarter,  to  a  level  of  Euro  34.0   million.
Correspondingly, the personnel cost ratio was up by  1.1  percentage  points  to
50.9%. The increase was primarily due to the start-up of the new  facilities  in
Braunschweig and Wachtendonk, as well as to a slight increase in the  proportion
of temporary help work. The introduction of  the  statutory  minimum  wage,  and
restructuring-related special effects, also burdened this item.

The third-quarter rental expense of  Euro  13.8  million  was  at  the  previous
year's level. This is mainly due to relief effects arising  from  the  sale-and-
lease-back concept for our home in Greiz and a new finance lease  contract  four
our home Geseke, as well as burdening effects arising from contractually  agreed
rental adjustments for some homes.
 
Consequently,  operating  EBITDA  earnings,  in  other  words,  earnings  before
interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, were almost unchanged at Euro  7.4
million, allowing the second quarter's falling earnings trend to be reduced.

The post-tax result amounted to Euro 1.4 million in the third quarter, Euro  0.6
million below the previous year's level. Earnings per  share  amounted  to  Euro
0.04 as a consequence. Earnings  after  tax  reached  Euro  1.4  million  as  of
September, which also corresponds to earnings per share of
Euro 0.04.

The Group's total assets at the end of the third quarter increased by Euro  31.9
million, or 13.5% compared with the start of  the  year,  to  reach  Euro  268.3
million.

Property, plant and equipment rose by Euro 18.6 million to Euro  214.4  million.
This is mainly due to the capitalization of our  new  facility  in  Wachtendonk,
new finance lease contracts for Geseke and Greiz  and  investments  in  existing
facilities and the laundry. 

The cash flow of the Curanum Group amounted to Euro 15.5 million as of September 2010. It consists of cash flow from operating activities of Euro 25.4 million (previous year: Euro 14.1 million), cash flow from investing activities of Euro 0.2 million (previous year: Euro -3.7 million), and cash flow from financing activities of Euro -10.1 million (previous year: Euro -12.8 million).
