Berlin, October 21, 2013. The Berlin-based technology company TELES (ISIN: DE0007454902) has achieved pre-tax breakeven in the first three quarters of the current financial year. Pre-tax earnings (EBT) amount to € 0.14 mn after a loss of € 2.45 mn in the corresponding period in the previous year. Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) stand at minus € 1.18 mn. Operating losses for the year have therefore halved.

Turnover went down to € 7.90 mn in the reporting period and therefore fell by 14 percent by comparison with the same period in the previous year. The modest turnover results are caused by delays to projects which have so far not been fully compensated for.
