Montabaur, November 3, 2009. The Executive Board and Supervisory Board of AdLINK Internet Media AG (AdLINK Group - ISIN DE 000549015 5) today adopted the consolidated figures for the first nine months of 2009.

As expected, the AdLINK Group´s business development over the first nine months was significantly affected by the economic crisis and advertising slump, as well as the resulting pressure on margins. Compared with prior-year figures still largely unaffected by these factors, profits in particular fell strongly.

Consolidated sales were down 1.2 % from EUR 106.7 million in the same period of 2008 (comparable prior-year figure after sale and deconsolidation of the Display Marketing segment) to EUR 105.4 million. Ordinary earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) fell by 36.4 % from EUR 10.7 million (comparable prior-year figure) to EUR 6.8 million. Ordinary earnings before taxes (EBT) fell by 50.0 % from EUR 7.4 million (comparable prior-year figure) to EUR 3.7 million.

Including non-recurring income of EUR 12.7 million resulting from the sale of shares in Hi-media and Goldbach Media to United Internet, EBITDA grew by 82.2 % to EUR 19.5 million and EBT by 121.6 % to EUR 16.4 million. After consideration of this one-off amount and the profit of EUR 18.2 million from selling the Display Marketing segment to Hi-media, consolidated net income amounted to EUR 32.3 million.

As a result of the sale of shares in Goldbach and Hi-media to United Internet, the AdLINK Group´s net borrowing was fully redeemed. After deduction of financial liabilities, cash and cash equivalents amount to EUR 7.1 million as of September 30, 2009 (December 31, 2008: EUR -33.0 million).

Earnings per share (EPS) rose from EUR 0.17 in the previous year to EUR 1.23 -this amount includes EUR 1.18 from positive non-recurring income.
