bmp media investors AG (ISIN DE0003304200) is today announcing its preliminary figures under IFRS for the 2012 business year.

In 2012, the company posted a loss of EUR 1.7 million, after recording a profit of EUR 0.3 million in 2011. The 2012 results were reduced by a specific valuation allowance taken on the Revotar AG investment in the amount of EUR 2.4 million. The result per share was EUR -0.09 (previous year: EUR 0.02 in earnings per share).

Revenue, which decreased considerably from EUR 5.3 million to EUR 1.3 million, primarily resulted from the sale of the Newtron AG investment in December 2012.

Shareholders' equity fell in 2012 by approximately EUR 2.1 million to EUR 17.0 million. The equity ratio also increased slightly to 92% from 93%.

The fourth quarter of 2012 developed positively again with earnings of approximately EUR 0.7 million and thus the net asset value of 87 cents per share as of 30 September 2012 increased to 90 cents per share as of 31 December 2012. The net asset value equates to the IFRS shareholders' equity of the company.

The total amount from the cash on hand, bank balances and marketable securities was EUR 8.4 million (of which EUR 4.0 million was cash on hand) as of 31 December 2012 which was slightly over the prior year's figure of EUR 8.2 million.

Overall, five new investments in the media and marketing services field were entered into in the 2012 business year and thus bmp media investors AG had over 16 investments in its core field at the end of the year.

For the 2013 business year, bmp media investors is planning at least five new investments. In addition, the company would also like to acquire individual investments or portfolios in exchange for the issuance of shares in the current year. The first discussions have already been held with regard to this. However, this is not expected to be implemented until the second half of 2013 at the earliest.

Due to the overall good condition of the portfolio coupled with high growth momentum of the investments, bmp media investors AG expects considerably positive results for 2013 and therefore a significant increase in the net asset value.

The annual report will be published at www.mediainvestors.com on 30 April 2013.
