Positive net income for the first half of 2015

In the first half of 2015, Deutsche Rohstoff Group has achieved net income (all figures according to HGB and unaudited) amounting to EUR 0.2 million. The main reason for this result were foreign exchange gains in EUR/USD which amounted to EUR 5.8 million. These currency gains are not realized for the most part. Product sales did not incur since the revenue generating projects in the US and Australia have been sold in 2014. As of 30 June 2015, earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization(EBITDA) amounted to EUR 3.1 million, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) to EUR 2.7 million and the profit from ordinary activities (EBT) to EUR 0.9 million.
