Hamburg, 2 March 2004 Deutsche EuroShop AG published its preliminary results for the 2003 financial year at a press and analyst conference in Frankfurt am Main on Tuesday.

Positive financial year
Deutsche EuroShop AG can look back on a positive 2003 financial year. Its result from ordinary activities was 27.9 million up 13% (0.3 million) year-on-year and slightly above the company's original forecast for 2003.

Deutsche EuroShop AG's net profit at 20.6 million
The company's main revenue driver is income from investments, which increased by 3.4 million or 14.6% year-on-year to 26.5 million. In contrast, net interest income fell to 3.2 million due to investments (2002: 4.5 million). The same applies to Deutsche EuroShop AG's other income and expenses totalling 1.8 million, down 1 million on the previous year. After deduction of deferred tax liabilities (7.4 million), the net profit for the year amounted to 20.6 million.

Unappropriated surplus again 30 million
The unappropriated surplus amounts to 30 million following the withdrawal of 9.5 million from the capital reserve.

Proposed dividend: 1.92 per share
The Executive Board will thus again propose a tax-free dividend of 1.92 per share for the 2003 financial year to the Annual General Meeting, to be held on 17 June 2004 in Frankfurt am Main.

Group sales up 6%
The Deutsche EuroShop Group's sales rose by 6% from 46.5 million to 49.3 million. The original projection was for a 4% increase.

Depreciation at 22.4 million
Depreciation of tangible assets rose slightly to 22.4 million (2002: 21.6 million).

Expenses on a par with 2002
At 12.8 million, other operating expenses were at the same level as the previous year (12.9 million).

Interest income declines due to investments
Other interest and similar income fell by 2.5 million from 7.2 million to 4.7 million as a result of investments. However, interest and similar expenses increased slightly by 0.2 million, from 18.6 million to 18.8 million. The net interest expense was thus 14.1 million, compared with 11.4 million in 2002.

Group still records minor loss
The Group's result from ordinary activities rose by 32% from 4.9 million to 6.5 million. After deduction of taxes on income amounting to 7.8 million (including deferred taxes of 7.4 million), other taxes amounting to 0.9 million (mainly property taxes), as well as minority interests, the consolidated net loss for the year was 0.5 million (2002: 2.9 million).

Net asset value of 43.56
On the basis of independent market value surveys by Feri Research and GfK PRISMA and the unaudited annual financial statements for the 2003 financial year, Deutsche EuroShop AG has estimated the net asset value of the Company at 680.7 million (as at December 31, 2003). This represents a net asset value per share of 43.56 for 15,625,000 shares, meaning that the shares are currently trading at around 20% below their net asset value.
