HAMBURG. Nov. 13, 2006. Management and the Supervisory Board of D+S europe AG (ISIN: DE0005336804), a leading provider of seamless customer relations management solutions, have just announced the group’s IFRS operating results for the first nine months of 2006. D+S europe AG has also recorded a significant increase in both revenues and earnings sales for third-quarter 2006, the most profitable quarter profit in the company's history. Nine months into the current financial year, D+S europe continues to record dynamic growth. Net revenues for the first three quarters of the current year were up 69% from EUR 67.9 million from the comparable figure a year ago to EUR 114.8 million, and EBIT climbed 161% from EUR 5.1 million to EUR 13.3 million. The EBIT margin also showed significant improvement, going from 7.5% for the comparable figure for the previous year to 11.6%. Earnings per share for the first nine months of financial 2006 increased 75% from 16 cents (Q1 through Q3 2005) to 28 cents. The improvement in all key ratios resulted not only from organic growth, but also from integration of dtms into the D+S europe AG group, which made it possible to achieve significant synergistic effects with other operational areas. The telephony added-value service provider was acquired with effect as of July 2005.

Third-quarter 2006 thus produced substantial growth in both sales and earnings over the comparable year-ago figure. Net revenues increased 22% from EUR 33 million to 40.1 million. EBIT rose 17% from EUR 4.1 million for Q3 2006 to EUR 4.8 million, a record high for the company. After restatement to eliminate one-time earnings in the amount of a net EUR 0.5 million for the comparable quarter a year ago, EBIT for the quarter was up EUR 1.2 million or 33%. Per-share earnings rose 22% from 9 cents in Q3 2006 to 11 cents for the reporting period.

Following successful performance in first nine months of the year, D+S europe again confirms its projections for financial 2006, which the company expects to end with net revenues in the amount of approx. EUR 170 million and EBIT in excess of EUR 18.5 million. D+S europe anticipates an increase of 25% in revenues with disproportionately high revenue growth for both 2007 and 2008. The company expects EBIT and earnings per share to increase by approx. 30% per year.

The company’s quarterly report will be available for downloading in the Internet at www.dseurope.ag as of Nov. 14, 2006.
