    United Internet AG can look back on a successful first six months in the year 2000. Sales of the 18 companies belonging to the United Internet network grew by 83 percent to EUR 109.6 million. Consolidated sales of those companies in which United Internet holds majority stakes grew by 63.5 percent to EUR 91.2 million. Income from ordinary activities (excluding at-equity losses, amortization of goodwill and the effects of a staff profit-sharing scheme) amounted to EUR - 4.1 million. This figure includes the first-time fully consolidated losses of gmx. In direct comparison with the consolidated group of the first half of 1999 (without GMX), there was an improvement in earnings from EUR -3.3 million (1st half 1999) to EUR 12,000 (1st half 2000). DVFA-based earnings per share amount to EUR -0.22, and after elimination of goodwill amortization reached EUR -0.09.

    The network was strengthened by the addition of three new shareholdings in the first six months (Gatrixx, livingNet, Netzpiloten). In addition, a European portal for online car trading, car4you, was founded together with PubliGroupe and Eurotax Schwacke. United Internet AG is Europe's leading network of Internet companies. The management holding company, listed on Frankfurt's Neuer Markt, comprises 18 innovative Internet firms - such as AdLINK, GMX, 1&1 Internet, twenty4help, gatrixx and Jobs & Adverts. They all benefit from the synergies and cooperation opportunities provided by the United Internet network.
