CapMan Plc's earnings per share (EPS) for the year 2007 is expected to be approximately EUR 0.23. EPS for the year 2006 was EUR 0.15 and consequently the Group's profit before taxes for 2007 will clearly exceed that of 2006 as guided earlier.
CapMan Plc's EPS for the period of January - September 2007 was EUR 0.25. According to the preliminary figures CapMan Plc's profit for the last quarter of 2007 will be negative as a result of fair value changes of fund investments.
