TAL: 12 months unaudited results of the 2008/2009 financial year

Tallink Grupp                    Quarterly report                     26.10.2009

12 months unaudited results of the 2008/2009 financial year

The Group (AS Tallink Grupp and its subsidiaries) unaudited revenues in the 12  
months of the 2008/2009 financial year were EUR 792 million (EEK 12 390 million)
which is 0.8% increase compared to the 12 months in the previous financial year.
Passengers related revenues increased more than EUR 51 million (EEK 806 million)
largely as an effect of the 15% increase in passenger volumes compared to the 12
months period in the previous financial year. Throughout the 2008/2009 financial
year the cargo volumes decreased year-on-year basis which impact resulted EUR 52
million (EEK 815 million) decrease in cargo revenues.                           

In the 4th quarter (June-August) of the 2008/2009 financial year the Group      
revenues increased by EUR 18.6 million (EEK 291 million) or 8% compared to the  
4th quarter of the previous financial year. The growth was resulted from the    
increased passenger operations which are at significantly higher volumes in the 
4th quarter high season and hence the drop in the cargo revenues was not        
dominating.                                                                     

The Group was able to stabilize the decrease in ticket revenues per passenger in
4th quarter whereas compared to the 2nd and 3rd quarters the aggressive discount
campaigns were not necessary in the high season. In the fourth quarter the      
average passenger spending improved and slightly exceeded the levels of the     
fourth quarter in the previous financial year. However, given the first nine    
months slowdown in passenger spending, weaker SEK/EUR exchange rate, and lower  
overall average pricing the total 12 months ticket and onboard spending shows   
EUR 5.3 (EEK 83) decrease per passenger.                                        

EBITDA of 2008/2009 financial year was EUR 133.1 million (EEK 2083 million)     
being 6% higher than in the 2007/2008 financial year. In the fourth quarter of  
2008/2009 financial year the Group's EBITDA reached EUR 76.6 million (EEK 1152  
million) which is 51% or EUR 24.9 million (EEK 389 million) year-on-year        
increase. The 4th quarter EBITDA margin increased to 29% from 21% year ago. The 
positive impact to the EBITDA improvement in the fourth quarter resulted largely
from the lower fuel price and thereby EUR 18 million (EEK 282 million) decreased
fuel costs, but also from the different cost savings which the Group initiated  
during the past 12 months.                                                      

In the fourth quarter of 2008/2009 financial year, the net profit reached EUR   
31.7 million (EEK 496 million) which is 11% better than a year ago. The         
unaudited net loss for the 12 months of 2008/2009 financial year was EUR 8.2    
million (EEK 127.9 million).                                                    

The Group's earnings reflect one time provisions and write offs in total of EUR 
3.4 million (EEK 53 million) recorded under cost of sales, administrative and   
general expenses and EUR 14.6 million (EEK 228 million) expenses resulting from 
interest rate derivatives mark to market revaluation, recorded under financial  
items in the fourth quarter.                                                    

The Group's fourth quarter development assured that the fundamentals of the     
Group business model are strong. Considering the overall weak macroeconomic     
situation the Group was still able to outperform its historical numbers in many 
areas. However, the management is not pleased with the Group's 12 months total  
result in the 2008/2009 financial year. Despite that there have been            
improvements in some areas, the surrounding weak macroeconomic environment      
continues add uncertainties to Group's operations. The focus is being kept on   
cost cuttings in the Group operations. The sales or charters of older vessels   
have high priority. The Group's target is to be in the pofit in the 2009/2010   
financial year.

SEK exchange rate against Euro has been highly volatile during the 12 months of 
the 2008/2009 financial year, being at the lowest point nearly 25% weaker       
compared to the previous financial year. The estimated negative impact to the   
Group sales from weak SEK/EUR exchange rate was nearly EUR 20 million (EEK 313  
million) during the 12 months period.                                           

The Group's administrative, general and marketing expenses, excluding the year  
end provisions and write offs decreased by EUR 10.4 million (EEK 163 million)   
during the 12 months which is 10% lower from the same period in the previous    
financial year.                                                                 

The depreciation and amortisation of the Group assets in the 12 months period   
increased by EUR 8.3 million (EEK 90.8 million) mainly due to three new vessels 
MS Superstar, MS Baltic Princess and MS Baltic Queen.                           

The net financial costs increased by EUR 21.5 million (EEK 336.8 million) during
the 12 months of the 2008/2009 financial year. Interest expenses decreased by   
EUR 6 million (EEK 93.7 million) whereas the expenses from derivative           
transactions - interest rate swaps and fuel swaps, increased by EUR 22.5 million
(EEK 352 million). The net expenses from derivative transactions include the    
mark to market revaluation in amount of  EUR 14.6 million (EEK 228 million). The
respective cash flows from all interest and fuel derivatives during the 12      
months of 2008/2009 financial year were negative by EUR 4 million (EEK 62       
million).                                                                       


The Group made changes in it's accounting according to IFRIC 13.  The Group     
adopted IFRIC 13 “Customer Loyalty Programmes” during financial year and        
comparative figures have also been provided [1]. For customer loyalty
programme, the 
fair value of the consideration received or receivable in respect of the initial
sale is allocated between award credits (Club One points) and ticket sale. As a 
result the Group has deferred income EUR 13.4 million (EEK 210 million) at 31   
August 2009. In the 2007/2008 financial year balance sheet EUR 13.1 million (EEK
205 million) deferred income was recorded. The revenues, EBITDA and net profit  
of the previous 2007/2008 financial year were lowered by EUR 0.9 million (EEK 14
million).
