--------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------- · Revenues increased 34% to EUR 46 million · Core businesses grew 47% · EBIT went up 43% to EUR 0.8 million April 23, 2003, Vienna, Austria - S&T System Integration & Technology Distribution AG (XETRA: SNT, OTC: STSQY), a leading IT service provider in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced its first quarter 2003 results. S&T’s revenues increased by 34 percent to EUR 46 million compared to the first quarter of 2002 and core business grew 47% to EUR 42 million. The strong revenue increase of 70% for the Enterprise Systems Unit was mainly due to a large contract in Romania which added approximately EUR 10 million in revenues to the first quarter of 2003 as well as the consolidation of Turkish Protek which was not part of the S&T Group in the first quarter of 2002. The acquisition of Fujitsu Services Ltd’s operations in seven countries did not affect the first quarter results since consolidation of this acquisition will only start in the second quarter 2003. Commenting on the first quarter results, CEO Tantscher said: "As expected, we had very solid results in first quarter 2003 which were further enhanced by the large Romanian contract. Overall, we are pleased that our EBIT increased by 43% percent, confirming our move towards higher value added services. There are promising projects in the pipeline, with some expected to materialize in the second quarter, which encourages us to look forward to the upcoming quarters with confidence".
