Advantage Group Ltd Announces Six Month Result

Advantage Group Ltd Announces Six Month Result – Recovery Underway

Auckland – 20 February 2002 – Advantage Group Limited (NZSE: ADV) today announced a surplus after tax of $880,000 for the six months ended 31 December 2001.

The balance sheet strengthened over the period with improvements to shareholders funds and reductions in debt and liabilities.

Cash flow for the period was neutral despite the increased working capital requirements arising from the seasonally higher business activity in the second quarter.

“This six month result shows the first steps towards recovery following the difficulties of last year,” said Mr Tony Bradley, Managing Director of the Group.

“The recovery is being led by domestic demand for our products and services, while the international market continues to be slow. The outlook for the second half of the year is for the gradual recovery to continue” said Mr Bradley.

The current six-month result is the first report following the restructuring undertaken in the early part of 2001.
