Consequently, the Group continued tochart its growth course in the first half of 2012.Sales revenue was up by 11.2 percent compared with the first half of 2011,to EUR 190.1 million (previous year: EUR 171.0 million). This revenuegrowth reflected operating growth at most of the companies that havebelonged to the Group for a longer period, and the corporate acquisitionsrealized in 2011 and the first quarter of 2012. EBITDA grew 12.5 percent inthe first half of 2012 to EUR 9.9 million (previous year: EUR 8.8 million).Earnings before interest, tax and amortization relating to purchase priceallocations, and from the earnings-effective adjustment of earnoutspursuant to IFRS, (EBITA) grew by 4.0 percent compared with the prior-yearperiod to EUR 7.8 million (H1 2011: EUR 7.5 million). By contrast, EBIT(earnings before interest and tax) fell 36.5 percent year-on-year to EUR3.3 million (H1 2011: EUR 5.2 million). This EBIT result reflects theimpact of acquisition activity, in particular. In accounting terms, theseacquisitions resulted in a significant rise of around EUR 2.2 million inIFRS amortization applied to purchase price allocations (in other words,amortization applied to order book positions, customer bases and products)to reach approximately EUR 4.5 million (previous year: EUR 2.3 million).The higher level of an amortization is based on the high valuation ofcustomer relationships of the companies acquired in 2011, which enjoy goodorder book positions and a large number of established customerrelationships.Between January and June 2012, the company generated EUR 7.4 million ofcash flow from operating activities before working capital changes(previous year: EUR 6.2 million). Cash flow from financing activitiesamounted to a net inflow of EUR 42.8 million in the first half of 2012(previous year: EUR 2.7 million outflow). Significant individual items incash flow from financing activities included the drawing down of aborrower’s note loan in a net amount of EUR 69.0 million, the repayment ofEUR 19.1 million of loans, and the EUR 4.2 million dividend that wasdistributed to Allgeier SE shareholders. The total assets of the AllgeierGroup grew by EUR 46.6 million, from EUR 242.1 million as of December 31,2011, to EUR 288.7 million as of June 30, 2012.
