---------------------------------------------------------------------   Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc.   The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Taucha, 12 November 2004: LINTEC Information Technologies AG ran up an operating loss in the third quarter of 2004. However, LINTEC’s Management Board still expects turnover for the year to reach €15 million.

By selling its interest in Apoll Information & Software AG in August 2004, LINTEC disposed of its software division and continued its policy of focusing on its core business. Consequently, its quarterly results are affected by the effects of deconsolidating Apoll. At the same time, LINTEC also bade farewell to its last regional branch (Arnstadt) and finally abandoned the principle of regional presence since the branches had been running at a loss for some time.

Concentration on LINTEC’S core business (PCs & entertainment electronics, production & service and business IT) is starting to bear fruit. After contracts were signed with two firms in recent months by the Production & Service division, since Q3 2004 LINTEC has also been manufacturing on behalf of two other companies. As a result, production has been operating in two shifts since September.

When considering the quarterly figures, two factors need to be taken
into account. Firstly, Q3 is along with Q2 traditionally the period
with the lowest turnover and income for LINTEC, and this was
certainly borne out in 2004. Secondly, income from the Production &
Service division, which was only set up in mid-2004, will only take
effect as of the end of the year.

Quarter-on-quarter comparison (€76 million turnover in Q3 2003
coupled with €2.1 million EBIT) needs to take into
consideration the fact that LINTEC has since sold a number of
participating interests. These are companies which in Q3 2003 still
accounted for considerable sales and earnings.

Invitation to the annual analysts’ conference on 24 November 2004 At the German Equity Forum in Frankfurt, the Management Board of LINTEC AG will be explaining the current quarterly figures to analysts and journalists and presenting the new divisions.
