Despite persisting difficulties in the general economic environment, Mobotix AG was able to increase its revenue by approximately 9% to €23.9m in the first six months of fiscal year 2009/10 (prior year: €22.0m).

Profitability continues to be at an extraordinarily high level with an EBIT margin of 19.5% and an EBITDA margin of 23.3%. Net income for the period amounted to €3.2 million, resulting in earnings per share of €0.72 (prior year: €0.85).
In the second quarter (October 1 - December 31, 2009) of the current fiscal year, Mobotix AG's sales amounted to €13.3m (previous year: €11.7m) corresponding to a growth of about 13.8% compared with the same period of the previous year. The EBITDA of the last three months reached €3.1m (previous year: €3.0m), resulting in an EBITDA margin of 24.5%. The EBIT in the second quarter of the fiscal year reached previous year's value of €2.7m, resulting in an EBIT margin of 20.9%.
