In the 2006/2007 financial year (1 September 2006 to 31 August 2007), SinnerSchrader increased its revenues by 17.5 percent to reach EUR 18.6 million. The operating result (EBITA) rose by nearly 74 percent to EUR 1.04 million. In the fourth quarter of the financial year, SinnerSchrader achieved growth rates in its revenues and EBITA of 20 percent and 117 percent respectively compared to the previous year underpinning the positive growth trend.
The audited Consolidated Financial Statements, which have been approved by the Supervisory Board and will be presented today, confirm the preliminary figures from 11 October 2007. The consolidated income amounted to EUR 1.0 million, or EUR 0.09 per share, which was only just below the previous year's figure despite the lack of significant positive special tax effects. The liquid funds rose to EUR 10.45 million as of 31 August 2007, while the equity ratio once again clearly surpassed the 70 percent mark, reaching 74.8 percent.
In the 2006/2007 financial year, SinnerSchrader was once again able to establish long-term relationships with new customers based on innovative initial projects. For example, SinnerSchrader began work for Sixt, ECCO, and Swarovski, among others. As its first project for the car rental company Sixt, SinnerSchrader designed and developed the carmondo.de community platform.
This success depends largely on the interplay of the various SinnerSchrader services, most prominently creation and technology. In order to strengthen this interplay, SinnerSchrader put in place a new organisational structure in 2006/2007. Now, SinnerSchrader sees itself perfectly equipped to take advantage of the opportunities currently available to interactive agencies.
SinnerSchrader's goal for the 2007/2008 financial year is to increase its revenues by 15 percent to reach over E 21 million and to achieve an EBITA of EUR 1.8 to E 1.9 million. An EBITA margin between 8.5 and 9 percent should bring SinnerSchrader significantly closer to its medium-term goal of a margin of 10 to 12 percent.
In light of the successful development of SinnerSchrader in the past two years and the promise of dynamic growth in the coming years, the Management Board and Supervisory Board will propose a dividend of EUR 0.12 per share from the balance sheet income as of 31 August 2007 at the Annual General Meeting on 19 December 2007.
