Issuer's information/explanatory regarding this ad hoc announcement:

Stephan Link, founder and CEO of COMPUTERLINKS AG commented: "We have continued the encouraging start to the year also in the second quarter of 2007. Our acquisition in Dubai, the company Fusion, has been contributing to the Group's results since 1st April 2007. We are pleased with the decidedly positive start of our new company in the Middle East. After a drop in turnover in the 1st quarter of 2007 COMPUTERLINKS North America is back on the anticipated growth path. Our most important manufacturer, Crossbeam, has implemented its product changeover. In addition Blue Coat, another important manufacturer for North America, has been signed up - initial Blue Coat projects have already been finalised. We expect a positive trend of business for the summer quarter similar to that of the two first quarters of the current financial year, before we experience a significant growth in business activity in the last quarter of 2007 customary for the end of the year."
