One the one hand, a settlement of a large-scale project, that had positive effects on EBIT, was charged in the previous year period. One the other hand, it is not possible to charge similar high margins in the current business environment as in the previous year. The EBIT-margin amounted at balance sheet day 3.5 percent (previous year: 7.7 percent).

The total balance sheet amounted on June 30 2009 24,539 TEUR (30.06.2008: 23,715 TEUR; 31.03.2009: 26,200 TEUR).

The operative development of the group is satisfying in the current market environment. In the reporting period, the management board pushed the further market presence of the company by opening new locations in Neustadt (Donau) and in Renens (Switzerland). Besides the support of existing customers, the management board uses the new offices as sales representatives to force the future growth of the company. Moreover the management board founded TRIPLAN Gebäudetechnik AG headquartered in Basel (Switzerland). The business activities of this new company are mainly the planning of house automation including energy efficiency consideration. With this, TRIPLAN improves the integrated service as an engineering service provider and breaks down cut surfaces.

With the positioning in the industries Life Science, Refinery/Petrochemical, Chemical/Industry and Energy, TRIPLAN is well positioned in the current challenging market to operate positively and to extend the market share.

The company acts furthermore on the assumption of the revenues forecast 2009. By the before mentioned pressure of margin we expect an EBIT-margin in the amount of 4.5 to 5.0 percent.
