Consolidated revenue increased by EUR 5.4 million to EUR 29.2 million. In addition to increased revenue of EUR 5.0 million in the Wholesale Solutions segment, ecotel's high-margin Business Customers (B2B) segment also improved significantly by EUR 0.7 million to EUR 11.2 million. In the New Business segment, revenue decreased slightly by EUR 0.2 million to EUR 4.2 million. In the first half year 2016 the consolidated revenue increased altogether by EUR 9.5 million to EUR 59.2 million. Consolidated gross profit in the second quarter 2016 increased from EUR 6.8 million to EUR 7.1 million. This was achieved essentially by Business Solutions (B2B) with an increase of EUR 0.4 million or 8 % to EUR 5.4 million. Gross profit in the New Business segment remained constant at EUR 1.7 million (previous year: EUR 1.7 million) despite the lower revenue. Altogether, ecotel earned gross profit of EUR 14.2 million in the first half year 2016 (previous year: EUR 13.8 million). Of this amount, 76.8 % is attributed to the Business Customers segment. Consolidated EBITDA in the second quarter 2016 was marked by planned one-time effects for ensuring the target growth course in the Business Customers (B2B) segment and consequently decreased to EUR 1.6 million (previous year: EUR 1.8 million). This included one-time marketing and sales costs, recruitment costs and additional investments for optimisation of processes and systems. In the first half year 2016 ecotel achieved EBITDA of EUR 3.5 million (previous year: EUR 4.5 million) and therefore remains on course. Overall, ecotel earned consolidated profit totalling EUR 0.4 million (previous year: EUR 1.1 million), which resulted in earnings per share of EUR 0.13 (previous year: EUR 0.31). The one-time revenue of EUR 1.3 million from the previous year must be taken into account in the comparison with the previous year. Free cash flow in the second quarter 2016 totalled EUR 2.0 million (Q2 2015: EUR 1.2 million). In the first half year 2016 ecotel was therefore able to achieve a free cash flow of EUR 1.0 million, so that the net financial assets increased from EUR 2.6 million at the end of 2015 to EUR 3.0 million. Equity increased by EUR 0.7 million to EUR 22.4 million (previous year: EUR 21.7 million). Despite the higher balance sheet total of EUR 45.0 million (previous year: EUR 42.6 million), ecotel was able to maintain a stable equity ratio of 49.8 %. ecotel is very satisfied with the first half year 2016. Profitable and sustainable growth in the Business Customers segment shows that ecotel is still on the right path. Meanwhile ecotel has introduced a new NGN product portfolio for the impending change from ISDN to ALL IP technology. This makes ecotel one of the first companies in the industry to be able to provide B2B customers with IP-based voice services via all access types. The slightly declining EBITDA in the second quarter 2016 corresponds to expectations. The company confirms the forecast published in the 2015 consolidated annual report and continues to expect revenue of EUR 95 - 105 million and EBITDA in the corridor of EUR 7.0 - 8.5 million for the current financial year 2016.
