The Securesoft Group, which was acquired in the 2nd quarter of 2005, again lived up to expectations in the 3rd quarter of 2005. For the 3rd quarter of 2005 group turnover rose by 29% to 61.6 million Euro (same period last year: 47.7 million Euro). With gross margins of 15.4% in the 3rd quarter of 2005 EBITDA* were 1.9 million Euro compared to 2.4 million Euro in the same quarter of the previous year. Net income for the 3rd quarter of 2005 was 0.9 million Euro compared to 1.5 million Euro in the same quarter of the previous year. This resulted in earnings per share of 0.14 Euro (based on 6,221,243 shares) compared to 0.26 Euro in the 3rd quarter of 2004 (based on 5,857,220 shares). Issuer's information/expalanatory remarks regarding this ad hoc announcement: Stephan Link, founder and CEO of COMPUTERLINKS AG stated: "Our growth is to be given further impetus by our recent market expansion. The Scandinavian Securesoft Group will contribute to profit in the 4th quarter of 2005 for the first time in the last, crucial months of the financial year 2005. The encouraging and profitable start for COMPUTERLINKS North America is likely to be continued. In addition to organic growth these effects will produce a disproportionate increase in turnover and profit in the 4th quarter of 2005."
