LAMDA Development: increase of 43% in consolidated turnover for first nine months of 2004 (GR)

LAMDA Development recorded an increase of 43% in the company’s consolidated turnover for the nine-month period between January to September 2004, totalling € 67,492,000 compared to € 47,234,000 for the corresponding period during 2003.

The company’s consolidated revenue for the same period also marked a rise of about 8%, at € 15,744,000 compared to € 14,642,000 for the corresponding period last year.

Consolidated income before taxes was limited to € 1,933,000 against € 2,275,000 for the same nine-month period during 2003, representing a reduction of approximately 15%, resulting mainly from the increased depreciations of approximately 54%.

LAMDA Development S.A.
The turnover of the parent company recorded an increase in the range of 174% whilst income before taxes showed losses of € 317,000 compared to profits of € 1,576,000. This was due to the impact from the reduction in share capital income from the corresponding restriction in available income (due to the development of the company’s investment programme) as well as increased management operation costs.

The nine-month results were positive for most of the subsidiaries within the LAMDA Development group of companies. More specifically:

LAMDA Prime Properties S.A. (100% participation by LAMDA Development S.A.)
Income from the full leasing of the Cecil Office Building in Kefalari maintained the same levels as in 2003, whilst profits of € 674,000 represented a 43% increase and thus, the company continues to contribute consistently to the strengthening of the group’s financial results.

LAMDA Estate Development S.A. (100% participation by LAMDA Development S.A.)
The company’s turnover was € 11,083,000 in comparison to € 14,337,000 for the corresponding period last year and thus, dropped 23%. This also limited net profits for the period to € 1,495,000 compared to € 3,672,000 (a 55% reduction), as last year’s results were boosted by the sale of real estate.
