In the first quarter of 2008/2009 CeoTronics has proven that a slight decrease in revenue does not automatically lead to a negative development of earnings. At the time being the Board of Management is convinced that after six months in 2008/2009 CeoTronics will be able to keep up with the good half year result of 2007/2008.

The decline of the order backlog as of November 30, 2008 (approx. -48.6% compared to November 30, 2007) is in the range of expectations, as the order backlog of the previous year also included two of the three lots of the CT-DECT JetCom order for the German Air Force worth more than EUR 6 million. Deducting this major order from the incoming orders in the second quarter of 2008/2009 those were even approx. 19% than in the previous year.

"The positive development of the incoming orders in the second quarter of the business year 2008/2009, the all in all comfortable order backlog and other projects in preparation make us look optimistically into Q3 and Q4", says Chairman and CEO Thomas H. Günther.
