L'activité au 1er trimestre 2008

Le chiffre d'affaires de ce trimestre s'élève à 273,2 millions d'euros, soit une hausse de 19,1 % par rapport à la même période l'an dernier. This amount includes the revenues of the recently acquired US subsidiary and, starting from March, the revenues of Sabelt. Like]for]like the revenue growth is 10.4%.

Revenues in the quarter amount to 273.2 million, up 19.1% over the same quarter last year. This amount includes the revenues of the recently acquired US subsidiary and, starting from March, the revenues of Sabelt. Like]for]like the revenue growth is 10.4%.

The revenue growth was driven by commercial vehicle and motorcycle applications, which grew by 33.3% and 28.5% respectively. Passenger car applications grew by 17.3%, benefitting from the sales of the newly acquired US company. Racing applications are slightly lower (]1.6%) due to the currency impact of US Dollar and GB Pound.

Most of the growth arises from the Nafta Area (+101.2%) thanks to the Harley Davidson platform and to the recently acquired company sales. Brazil and Asia continue to grow, +46.2% and +80% respectively, the latter thanks to the good performance of Japanese car manufacturers and to the newly gained platforms. Italy grows by 12.6%.

EBITDA amount in the quarter to 40.0 million (14.6% of sales) up 19.6% over previous year.

Amortization and depreciation are 14.1 million, up 30.9% over the same period last year, due to the intense investment program underway.

EBIT amounts to 25.9 million, or 9.5% of Groupfs sales.

Financial charges are 3.7 million, compared to 3.1 million of last year; the increase is connected both with the higher debt level and with the increase of interest rates.

Estimate of taxes for the quarter is 6.7 million ( 6.8 million in the first quarter 2007), equal to a tax rate of 30.3%, down compared to 34.7% of the same quarter last year thanks to the positive effects of the 2008 Italian Tax Law.

Net profit of the quarter is 15.7 million, up 24.7% over previous year.

Investments of the Group in the quarter were 13.5 million.

Net financial indebtedness comes to 283.1 million from 235.9 million at December 31st 2007; the increase is due to the JV agreement with Sabelt ( 28 million) and to the increase in working capital, typical in the first quarter.

Alberto Bombassei, Chairman of Brembo Group, commented: "We recorded a positive first quarter notwithstanding a particularly tough macroeconomic world scenario. Despite the overall climate of uncertainty, our Group continues to strongly believe in the automotive market and in its future development opportunities. For this reason we will pursue an intense investment program also for the years to come and, among the others, we will double the production capacity of the Polish disc factory, with an investment of about E 45 million. "
