Integralis confirming preliminary figures with the publication of its consolidated financial statements for 2009

(PresseBox) (Ismaning, ) Integralis AG has today released its audited figures for 2009, which confirm the preliminary data released in mid March.

Earnings in 2009 were influenced by several nonrecurring and exceptional factors which came to a total of € 11.1 million.

With the exception of the second quarter, Integralis was able to achieve steady yearon- year revenues growth. This growth was also achieved at the Group level in the fourth quarter of the year, which in fact exceeded the record achieved in the previous year.

In absolute terms, the largest topline contribution was provided by the UK, followed by Germany/Austria/Switzerland. The greatest revenue growth was generated in the United States, which achieved gains of almost 24 percent in 2009 despite the crisis.

As in the previous year, Germany/Austria/Switzerland made the greatest contribution to consolidated earnings. EBITDA from the UK was down primarily as a result of the weak pound. The heavy startup costs of € 1.0 million for the American network operation centre (NOC) resulted in only a marginal contribution to earnings despite the higher revenues. Looking forward, French business will be coordinated from Germany/Austria/Switzerland so that it can benefit from the Group's best practices. In Sweden as well, structural measures have been implemented to streamline regional responsibilities and steps taken for sales activities to be coordinated from the United Kingdom to a greater extent.

With the exception of the particularly cyclical Technology Sales segment, all Integralis segments generated steady growth in 2009. The share of recurring revenues in Support Services and Managed Security Services is improving the calculability of income flows, resulting in a more advantageous revenue mix thanks to the greater proportion of highermargin business.

"In the new year, we are operating with substantially optimised cost structures and leaner regional management responsibilities. Pentup capital spending is easing slowly but surely," says CEO Georg Magg, who is cautiously optimistic for the future.

"We are seeing signs of a moderate recovery in all core regions and are currently working on numerous projects, including larger ones."
