Posted on 27.02.2009

MAIN FACTORS THAT INFLUENCED THE RESULT FOR 2008, COMPETITIVENESS OF THE GROUP AND RESULTS

The Baltic gaming market contracted 20% in the fourth quarter of 2008. Although October was the most successful month for the Group in 2008, almost all markets where the Group operates were in strong decline. At the same time the Group has managed to outperform the market average: during the year the market share of OEG increased from 42% to 45% in Estonia, from 15% to 16% in Latvia and from 51% to 54% in Lithuania. For the year as a whole, the biggest income gains were recorded by the Group companies in Poland and Slovakia.

During 2008 the Group implemented an extensive efficiency program. The Group closed 10 casinos that had negative cash flows and at the end of 2008 operated 133 casinos in eight countries. During the year the Group reduced the number of jobs by 288 (approximately 7%) and at the end of the year had 3 924 employees. Costs related to these activities amounted to 17.7 million kroons (1.1 million euros) in 2008. The efficiency program implemented in 2008 is expected to have a positive impact on the Group’s earnings in 2009 in the total estimated amount of 166 million kroons (10.6 million euros).

The Group’s results in 2008 were strongly affected by fluctuations in foreign exchange rates (Ukrainian grivna, Polish zloty, Romanian leu) and accounting losses resulting from re-assessment of several investments that will not have a direct effect on the Group cash flows. Behind accounted foreign exchange rate losses were intra-Group loan agreements.

The Group’s operating earnings before non-capitalised investment costs, costs related to optimization of structure and closure of casinos as well as costs related to the adjustment of investments and changes in foreign exchange rates were 135.9 million kroons in 2008 (8.7 million euros). However, the Group’s pre-income tax loss for 2008 amounted to 446.1 million kroons (28.5 million euros) that was influenced by additional one-off costs of implementing the efficiency program in the amount of 17.7 million kroons (1.1 million euros), loss from changes in currency exchange rates in the amount of 263.4 million kroons (16.8 million euros), re-assessment of assets in the amount of 197.1 million kroons (12.6 million euros) and non-capitalised investment costs in the amount of 104.4 million kroons (6.7 million euros).

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE OPERATION OF THE GROUP IN Q1 2009

In the first quarter 2009 the Group reduced the remuneration payable to employees by 20%.

During the first quarter 2009, the Group will additionally close 15 casinos that have negative cash flows and continue to closely monitor the profitability of several other casinos. During the same period the number of Group employees will decrease by 356 positions or approximately 9%.

The Group plans to significantly modify its casino entertainment concept by transforming most casinos that it operates into casino lounges. As a result of these changes, casinos will have a wider floor area where customers can spend leisure time without gaming. In addition, the range of products on offer in casino bars will be expanded significantly: in addition to the current extensive drinks’ variety there will also be a food menu with favourable prices. The first casino lounges complying with the new concept will be completed at the beginning of the second quarter 2009.

In the light of shrinking demand and with the aim of implementing a new concept, the Group plans to reduce the number of slot machines in most of its casinos during the first quarter 2009. As a result of this, the fixed costs related to the gaming tax will fall significantly. In addition, the Group plans to shorten the opening time of several casinos (before, all casinos operated by Olympic Casino were opened 24 hours a day).

The Group’s rent cost will decline in the course of the first quarter 2009 both through closure of casinos and fall of rentals of premises in existing casinos. New agreements reached with owners of various rented premises will have a positive influence on the cost structure of the Group since the second quarter of 2009.
