    Munich (ots Ad hoc-Service) -        

    U.C.A. increases earnings before taxes by more than 370% despite increased risk provision, from an expected 15 million EUR to an expected 21.7 million EUR

    U.C.A. AG is looking back on its most successful business year since it came into being. Subject to the annual audit, the company reports total sales of an expected 47.1 million EUR, an increase of more than 360% over 1999. The predicted EBT for 2000 is 21.7 million EUR, which is an increase of more than 370% over the previous year.

    The predicted earnings for the year 2000 could not be achieved due to the situation on the stock markets. The very high risk provision decided in the 4th quarter of 2000 is an expected 15 million EUR.

    The continued unsatisfactory capital market situation means that the predictions for the business year 2001 are not expected to be met. U.C.A. AG has a high potential for development after its realignment in the areas of biotechnology / life sciences and micro/nano-technology. Its high-quality portfolio will make it possible for U.C.A. to again assist several companies in going public this year.
