    In the first quarter of the new fiscal 2001 (fiscal year ends on September 30), Analytik Jena AG continued its successful development. In the first quarter of fiscal 2001, sales revenues rose by 38.8% to EUR 8.019 million. Sales were mainly driven by new product launches and the successful extension of the international sales network, as well as by the for the first time consolidated engineering services of the joint venture in the lab solutions business unit. With EUR 2.781 million, the gross operating result could be increased by more than 50% over the first quarter of last year. Which is due to the seasonal high share from highly profitable analytical and bioanalytical range in the total sales, as well as scale effects in production. In the first three months of the new fiscal year, the earnings before interest expense and taxes (EBIT) increased to EUR 0.720 million. Altogether, Analytik Jena achieved a quarter result after taxes of EUR 0.376 million. For the first three months, the earnings per share could considerably increased to EUR 0.11 from EUR 0.05 of the same period of the previous year. With a record level of the backlog of orders totalling EUR 21.367 million at December 31, 2000, Analytik Jena has already now created the basis for the further successful development in fiscal 2001.
