Net income increased from break-even in the first half of 2007 to 0.59 MEUR in the first half of 2008.

The improvement in profit margins resulted from a relatively fixed technology cost structure and strong growth in software subscription revenues. Emailvision continues to leverage the gross margins from this business model to invest in its sales and market share growth strategy.

During the first six months of 2008, Emailvision hired 7 new sales hunters taking the sales team up to 36 by the end of June 2008. Emailvision also invested 473 KEUR in R&D and 615 KEUR in marketing during the first half 2008.

2008 Outlook: Continued investment in market share growth within a growing global market for e-mail market software services.

In 2008, Emailvision intends to pursue its strategy of increasing investments in sales, marketing and R&D to ensure long term global market share growth and leadership.

The version 7 of the Campaign CommanderTM software service will be released in November 2008. Highly innovative, both in terms of new features and performance, this release will place Emailvision at the forefront of "best of breed" e-mail marketing applications.

International expansion will remain a priority. Beyond its four historic markets (UK, France, Germany and Belgium), Emailvision has recently launched operations in Switzerland, the Netherlands and the United States. The Group also plans to launch operations in Spain during the second half of 2008.

These initiatives should contribute to revenue growth in 2008 and to profits starting 2009.
