Nanostart holding ItN Nanovation: results improve by more than 600,000 euros in the first half of 2010

Saarbrücken / Frankfurt | Posted on August 25th, 2010

Nanostart portfolio company ItN Nanovation AG (ISIN DE000A0JL461) has further improved its financial results. The numbers published yesterday in the semi-annual report show an increase of 626,000 euros over the same period last year. In the first half of the year, the company managed to create conditions for achieving overall objectives for fiscal 2010.

Reorganization and restructuring measures are making a significant impact. On the cost side, the company has been able to achieve additional substantial reductions. In total, personnel costs and other operational expenses have been reduced by 25 percent.

The company obtained a gross cash influx of nearly 1.3 million euros through a capital increase in April 2010. The placement of shares with reputable industrial investors at an issue price very close to the market value was successful. Funds were procured in particular to prepare for anticipated bulk filtration orders. Despite capital increase measures, the financial situation remains tight.

Ceramic flat filter CFM Systems® are developing as planned into a major sales item and margin enhancer. The primary area of application in 2010 is pre-filtration of reverse osmosis systems for drinking water extraction. This is a large market segment in the Arabian region. ItN Nanovation achieved access to this market by successfully fulfilling an initial order in July that was placed in early May. Concrete orders from Saudi Arabia with considerable volume are already emerging for the third and fourth quarters of the current year. The objective of achieving the highest revenues in company history in 2010 is within reach.

Together with a Maltese partner, the first highly integrated MBBR (Moving Bed Bio Reactor) container purification plant was developed and presented to the public as a series in June 2010. This globally unique system will make a sustainable contribution to the future business success of ItN Nanovation. The first systems are scheduled for delivery from Malta in November/December of the current year. In addition, entry into the Indian market with a simplified version of this container system is planned.

ItN Nanovation is now entering the final phase of a multistage reorganization and restructuring concept, in which the company is significantly improving sales in terms of profit ratio. The company anticipates a considerable increase in sales in the second half of 2010 and expects positive overall numbers for the year thanks to results-improving effects created by the formation of joint ventures and subsidiaries.
