In order to inform our shareholders and investors due to the current articles from the interview of the President and General Manager Mr Apostolos – Evangelos Vakakis to Mrs Angeliki Koutantou from the Reuters we inform you that the first quarter of the new fiscal year 01.07.2006-30.06.2007 will show a double digit growth rate. As that quarter is one of the weak quarters for the company the management for the time being will not revise the full year guidance. Besides we would like to clarify that Mr Vakakis stated for the financial year ended 30 June 2006 that management’s intention is to propose in the General Meeting of Shareholders dividend 35% of profits. The statement of Reuters that according to Reuters calculations this would result to €0.31 dividend per share is not correct, possibly due to a wrong estimate without the latest increase to the shares of the company.
