Consolidated operating profit amounted to 99.4 million kroons (6.4 million euros), 49.3% down compared with the first half-year of 2007. Consolidated net profit equalled 97.4 million kroons (6.2 million euros), a 48.5% decrease from the 189.0 million kroons (12.1 million euros) earned in the first half-year of 2007.

2008 second quarter results were expectedly influenced by slight seasonal volatility, expenses related to expansion and to new casinos opening in amount of 27.5 million kroons (1.8 million euros) and relative weakness of Baltic gaming markets, which partially comes from overall cooling of economic climate, but partially also from additional administrative measures set up on gaming operators. Obligation of casino clients´ registration in Lithuania came into force since June 1st, which reduced a number of visits in June by approximately 15%. According to worldwide experience in such cases previous number of visits re-establishes itself within the period of three till six moths. In addition a complete smoking ban came into force in Lithuania since July 1st and will probably negatively influence third quarter results of Lithuanian subsidiary. In Estonia a smoking ban came into force since June 1st. In comparison with the previous year Estonian gaming market has decreased by approximately 15%. Influenced by overall difficult economic situation, the similar gaming markets´ development trends can be observed in the majority of other states.

In spite of difficult market situation in the Baltics, in first half year 2008 OEG concern has continued its aggressive investment and expansion activity on all markets. In addition to opened and renovated casinos on existing markets, a first casino was opened in Slovakia`s capital Bratislava in Radisson SAS hotel, which start has exceeded our expectations. Within the current year concern activities aimed for unification of companies’ structure, constant optimization of operating expenses and integration of companies acquired in 2007 into other operations of OEG are continued. In second quarter, these activities resulted best in Latvian subsidiaries, where the profit has grown over five times in comparison with the first quarter, while revenue numbers remained at the same level.

Depending on the development of the overall economic climate we expect margins to start growing not before the end of this year.

Consolidated expenses for the first half year 2008 totalled to 1,295.9 million kroons (82.8 million euros), 54.6% up compared to the first half year 2007. The largest expense items were personnel expenses including social charges which amounted to 421.7 million kroons (30.0 million euros), followed by gaming tax expenses of 234.2 million kroons (15.0 million euros), depreciation and amortisation expense of 169.7 million kroons (10.8 million euros), premises rental expenses of 140.9 million kroons (9.0 million euros) and marketing and jackpot expenses of 105.6 million kroons (6.7 million euros).

In comparison with last year, the strongest cost growth in absolute figures came from personnel expenses – 149.2 million kroons (9.5 million euros) – a 54.8% up on year ago, gaming tax expenses – 119.2 million kroons (7.6 million euros) – a 103.7% growth, and premises rent expenses – 74.4 million kroons (4.8 million euros) – a 111.8% growth.


Estonian segment

Due to the Group’s expansion, the Estonian segment’s contribution to consolidated revenue has declined from 39.0% to 28.7% compared to the same period of a previous year. In the first half-year of 2008, the segment’s external revenue amounted to 400.3 million kroons (25.6 million euros) including gaming revenue of 369.4 million kroons (23.6 million euros). In first half-year 2008, the segment’s external revenue decreased by 0.7% compared to the same period of last year, growth of gaming revenue was 3%. The decrease in revenues was mostly caused by the decrease in hotel revenues by 4.6 million kroons (0.3 million euros) compared to the first half-year result of the last year.

According to the Estonian Gaming Operator Association, in first half-year 2008 the market share of Olympic Casino Eesti AS was 44%. Total revenue of Estonian gaming market has shown a declining trend, decreasing in the second quarter about 11% in comparison with the first quarter and approximately 15% on a half year comparison basis. Gaming revenues were negatively influenced by a smoking ban in casinos since June.

At the end of June 2008, there were 35 Olympic Casinos in Estonia with a total of 1,294 slot machines and 24 gaming tables. During the first half of the year, 4 former Kristiine Kasiino facilities were renovated.

In first half-year of 2008 the Estonian segment’s operating profit has decreased by 22.7% and amounted to 77.5 million kroons (5.0 million euros). Profit decrease has been primarily caused by slowdown of the revenue growth and increase of rental and depreciation expenses.

The Latvian segment’s operating profit amounted to 13.8 million kroons (0.9 million euros), 72.2% down compared to the first half-year of 2007. Profit decrease has been caused by increase of operating expenses and slowdown of the revenue growth. In connection with the realization of the process of streamlining organizational structures in Latvian subsidiaries, the operating profit in the second quarter of the current year grew more than five times compared to the first quarter. The full cost effect of restructuring process will appear at the end of the year.
