Delticom AG: Preliminary revenues and earnings for the first six months of 2010
Delticom recorded in the second quarter revenues of about EUR 102 million (Q2'09: EUR 88.1 million, up 16%), following revenues of EUR 74.5 million in the first quarter (Q1'09: EUR 51.0 million, up 45.9%). Due to persistent snowy weather conditions at the beginning of the year and the early start into the summer tyre season in March sales in Q1 were higher than anticipated.
Despite the somewhat cooler weather during the second quarter revenues were still in line with expectations.
Delticom AG will publish its full financial statements for the first six months on 10 August 2010. The report can be downloaded from the website www.delti.com within the "Investor Relations" area.
