In the 1st quarter of 2007, Maisons France Confort confirmed its continued strong growth, recording sales up by 18%, to ¤117.8m.

On a like-for-like basis (excluding Millot Sas, which was acquired in October 2006), sales increased by 14.8%.

This new increase in business, which is in line with the Group's objectives for the year, has come with an increased number of construction sites, up 16.2% in value, in the first 3 months of the year.

2007 outlook

The good performance recorded in the first quarter consolidated both the Group's growth, with an annual turnover, on a like-for-like basis, that exceeded ¤475m and its excellent level of profitability.

Maisons France Confort will also benefit, over the year, from an acceleration of its selective external growth policy.

For the record, Maisons France Confort acquired, on 1 April of this year, PCA Maisons, a company based in the department of Var (83). PCA Maisons has thus consolidated its position in a high-potential region. With production running at ¤8,341K (as at 31 March 2006) and an operating margin of 14.9%, this acquisition will be accretive as of the first year of its incorporation and will increase the Group's 2007 sales.

Next press release: 2nd quarter 2007 Sales, 8 August after stock exchange.
