BETA SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES PRELIMINARY RESULTS FOR FY 2006

. SOLID OPERATING PERFORMANCE IN Q4 2006 AND POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR 2007

Berlin, February 27, 2007 - Based on an assessment of its Q4 2006 performance figures, the Management Board of Beta Systems Software AG (BSS, ISIN DE0005224406) has formed the opinion that the positive trend in third-quarter operating performance is likely to have continued into the fourth quarter 2006. This opinion is subject to an audit of the annual accounts. Supported by higher revenues within the area of software licenses and the considerable streamlining of cost structures, the Company was able to achieve a significant improvement in earnings in the second half of 2006.

Financial Highlights Q4 2006  . Total revenue decreases to approx. E
29 million (Q4 2005: E 30.7      million)  . Positive trend continues:
revenue growth of approx. 4% from software licenses  . Comparable
(adjusted) operating result propelled to approx. E 3.6      million (Q4
2005: E 3.3 million)

Preliminary Financial Highlights for Fiscal 2006  . Revenue increased
by about 1% to approx. E 97 million (FY 2005: E 95.6      million)  .
Comparable (adjusted) operating result improves, reaching approx. E
-2.9 million (FY 2005: E -4.2 million)  . Significant preliminary
pre-tax loss for the year of approx E 16,7 million      (FY 2005:
pre-tax loss of E 5.1 million), as anticipated, due to exceptional
charges (approx. E 13 million in 2006)

Outlook for Fiscal 2007      As a result of sales-related measures
implemented within the framework of the      Company's refocusing of
corporate strategy, the Management Board expects a      slight growth
in revenue in 2007, driven by a low single-digit growth rate.      This
goes along with a significant increase of the software license and
service business and a further reduction of hardware sales at the
same time.      With cost structures having been optimized to a degree
that is considered      sustainable in the long term, the Management
Board is currently looking to      exceed and remain above break-even
over the course of the fiscal year; the      Company's EBIT margin for
fiscal 2007 is expected to be in the mid single-      digit range.
