Delticom AG (German Securities Code WKN 514680, ISIN DE0005146807, stock market symbol DEX), Europe's leading Internet tyre retailer, has published its full report for the first nine months of 2010. Compared with the prior-year period, Delticom lifted its revenues by 27.5% to EUR 257.0 million (9M09: EUR 201.6 million). In the third quarter the company recorded revenues of EUR 79.7 million (+27.6%, Q309: EUR 62.4 million).

The company's profitability also improved significantly: Q310 EBIT rose to EUR 6.0 million

(Q309: EUR 4.5 million). 9M10 EBIT went up by 54.5% to EUR 22.7 million (9M09: EUR 14.7 million), an EBIT margin of 8.8% (9M09: 7.3%). Consolidated net income was EUR 15.2 million or EUR 1.29 per share (basic). Earnings per share thus increased 51.9% against the 9M09 figure of EUR 0.85.

Rainer Binder, Delticom AG's CEO: "The first nine months of the year have been very successful for our company. We were able to expand our business once again on the back of steady developments in the European tyre industry and great improvements to the online sales channel."

Delticom acquired 625 thousand new customers year-to-date and served around 294 thousand recurring tyre buyers. On 30.09.2010 the customer base exceeded 4.0 million customers. 9M10 revenues in the E-Commerce division increased by 29.1% year-on-year, from EUR 189.8 million to EUR 244.9 million. The Wholesale division has stabilized in 2010 after experiencing a decline in the wake of the recession. In the reporting period, divisional revenues grew by 2.2% to EUR 12.1 million (9M09: EUR 11.8 million).

Frank Schuhardt (CFO) is satisfied with the current winter tyre business: "So far, it has scarcely snowed and only in few areas in higher altitudes. Still, the debate on whether to make winter tyres mandatory has bolstered German demand in recent weeks."

Management confirms the current planning for FY 2010. Delticom should be able to grow its revenues by more than 15% year-on-year at an EBIT margin of 9%, even if demand for winter tyres receives no further tailwind from snowy weather or new statutory regulations.
