Eching (ots Ad hoc-Service) - Kontron Embedded Computers AG, a world- wide leading supplier of miniaturised computers, was able to realise an extraordinarily high growth in turnover and results in the first half of the financial year 2000, as well as an extraordinarily high receipt of orders. As a consequence turnover increased from 16,2 million Euro, in the first half of 1999, to 41,5 million Euro in the first half of the current financial year 2000. The result before taxes amounted to 6,14 million Euro, not taking into account the costs of an initial public offering on the stock market in April of this year, as against 2,2 million Euro in the previous year. The annual profit, at 4,85 million Euro, has more than tripled in comparison to the previous year and amounted to 11,7 percent of turnover (9,7 percent in the previous year). The earnings per share rose to 0,41 Euro (0,13 Euro in the previous year).

The company Board of Directors assesses the receipt of orders as "very satisfying"; they amounted to 51,8 million Euro in the first half year, as against 13,3 million Euro in the previous year. On the 30th of June there were 402 employees engaged at Kontron - 200 more than in the middle of 1999.
