For the entire 2008 business year the BOD is expecting revenues of far more than 40 million.

On the 2008 semi-annual report's due date, AGO AG Energie + Anlagen reported equity capital in the amount of EUR 12.59 million (previous year: EUR 11.43 million).

"We are satisfied with AGO AG's development in the first term of 2008. We could not just increase our incoming orders in the first term of 2008 by more than 54 percent compared to the previous year, we could actually gain orders in the amount of about EUR 9 million in the subsequent month. This development makes clear that AGO AG Energie + Anlagen as a specialist for biomass heating stations and biomass cogeneration plants significantly benefits from the developments of this business sector - high oil price, CO2 climate discussion, increasing energy costs, energy efficiency, energy contracting. With the initiation and implementation of the climate protection program for medium-sized companies we have moreover established the basis to profit from the growth market "energy generation from biomass" in the future. Also our structure optimization, the promotion of our expansion throughout Europe as well as the expansion of the operational business in Germany prove to be positive and promising at the same time. Owing to that, we are confident to be able to considerably increase revenues and profits in 2008 as opposed to the previous year", according to Hans-Ulrich Gruber, CFO of AGO AG Energie + Anlagen.
