Eureko announces 2009 interim results
Halfway through 2009 the reality is that we are still living in uncertain economic times that continue to impact both the financial sector and society as a whole. Earlier in the year, we announced measures to strengthen our Group at both financial and operational levels. The initial results of our efforts are encouraging.
Economic developments in the first half of 2009 resulted in a net profit of € 115 million. A modest decline compared to € 124 million in the same period last year but, compared to the significant loss in the second half of 2008, we see this result as encouraging.
