PostFinance recorded earnings before tax of 542 million francs (–33 million francs year-on-year). The fact that the decline in profit was only moderate despite extremely difficult conditions on the financial markets is primarily due to non-recurring revenue from the sale of equity holdings and a participation. The operating result was therefore down significantly year-on-year.
