secunet 2009: revenue up 27 percent, EBIT up 136 percent

[Essen, 3 February 2010] secunet Security Networks AG is today announcing its preliminary figures for the 2009 financial year. Over the past financial year, the secunet Group generated revenue of EUR 66 million. Compared with the previous year’s revenue of EUR 52.1 million, this represents an increase of 27 percent.

The particularly good fourth quarter played a decisive role here, with the company’s business performance in this quarter (traditionally the strongest) also benefitting from projects awarded as a result of the German government's economic rescue package. These factors combined made it possible to achieve revenue of EUR 28.8 million and earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of EUR 4.9 million in Q4 2009. As a result, the secunet Group – with EBIT of EUR 4.4 million for the full year – was able to more than double the prior-year figure.

"The success of our business makes it clear that we are on the right strategic track", comments Dr. Rainer Baumgart, Chairman of the Management Board of secunet Security Networks AG. "High-quality products and superior technological competence are sought-after even in times of crisis."

The order book, which has been at a consistently high level, bodes well for the current year: at the end of 2009, it amounted to EUR 30.3 million, compared with 31.1 million on 31 December 2008.

secunet will publish its full annual financial statements and annual report for 2009 on 19 March 2010.
