Annual & Special Corporate Meetings

Berlin (euro adhoc) - Berlin, June 7, 2011 - The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of Beta Systems Software AG (BSS, ISIN DE0005224406), which took place today in Berlin, approved the resolution amending the Articles of Association to take account of the switch to a different fiscal year. The fiscal year will now start on October 1 and end on September 30 of the following year. The period from January 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011 will be deemed a short fiscal year. The Manage-ment Board and the Supervisory Board put forward a proposal to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders to change the fiscal year as most of the contracts acquired in Beta Systems' continued operations are customarily only signed in the fourth quarter of the year. Moreover, following the sale of the ECM business, there is now even greater seasonality of sales revenues, and thus of the course of business. Given that the end of the fiscal year in customer companies and in Beta Systems coincides, these months are characterized by the greatest pressure on prices and negotiations which tends to exert a negative impact on the level of margins when large contracts are signed. These effects are to be counteracted more effectively by changing the fiscal year.

Furthermore, the Management Board and Supervisory Board were granted discharge for their term of office in the fiscal year 2010 at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders. No discharge was granted to former Board member Kamyar Niroumand for his term of office in the fiscal year 2009. BDO AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Berlin, was mandated as independent auditor for the fiscal year 2011.

Capital represented:    EUR 10,999,359.80
