Second Quarter Results 2010

Total Net Sales (including raw materials and semi-finished products sold to third parties) were €145.2 million, an increase of 8.7% as compared to corresponding period of 2009.

Upholstery net sales were €130.9 million, up 12.0% as compared to the same period of 2009.

The contribution to upholstery net sales by geographic area was as follows: Europe (excluding Italy) 40.1%, Americas 37.4%, Italy 10.0% and Rest of the World 12.5%.

The major commercial performances came from North America (+38%), Asia-Oceania (+42%) and Great Britain (+49%).

Industrial margin was €54.6 million, showing an increase of 8.1% versus the same quarter of 2009. The increase of volumes sold and the major internal efficiencies enabled the group to offset the consequences of significant increases in raw material costs, in particular leather.

Transportation costs were negatively influenced by a significant increase in freight fares.

At the same time, an increase in terms of sales commissions was recorded due to the better performance in terms of sales in those geographical areas operated by some sales agents who are compensated through commissions on turnover
