HAMBURG. Oct. 17, 2006. Retroactively as of October 1, 2006, D+S europe AG (ISIN: DE0005336804), a leading provider of seamless customer-relations management solutions, has acquired mobileview AG, one of Europe’s largest companies active in the area of mobile added-value services based on SMS, MMS and WAP. At the same time, D+S europe AG can report positive unaudited figures for the third quarter of the current year.

mobileview AG offers its more than 100 corporate clients up-to-the-minute cellphone content, special payment solutions, mobile marketing services and a wide range of other plug-and-play applications. Since 2004, mobileview’s earnings performance has been improving at an average rate of over 30% per year with gross margins well over 40%. This strong growth and further improvement in gross margin are also expected to continue in the years to come.

Together with the 2005 acquisition of dtms, which specializes in added-value services in the area of conventional telephony, the acquisition of mobileview by D+S europe AG now gives the group two market-leading companies involved in language- and data-based added-value services. The D+S europe group now ranks among Germany’s largest providers with a homogeneous added-value system for conventional and mobile telephony. The group expects to end the coming year with gross revenues of EUR 57 million in the mobile sector.

D+S europe AG continued to show growth in revenues and earnings in the third quarter of this year. According to unaudited figures, consolidated revenues rose by more than 20% from organic growth to over EUR 40 million from a comparable EUR 33 million a year earlier. EBITDA increased 32% from EUR 5.6 million to EUR7.4 million, and EBIT rose 17% from EUR 4.1 million for third-quarter 2005 to EUR 4.8 million.

D+S europe AG is listed on the SDAX segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The company is present in 11 German states as well as in Austria, Poland and the Czech Republic with over 3,000 group employees and ranks among Germany’s largest outsourcing service providers for marketing and customer-process management.
