Group Interim Report as of March 31, 2005:

- Revenues of 16.6 million Euro (previous year 19.7) - Net profit of -0,6 million Euro (previous year -0.6)   - Operating Cash Flow of 11.9 million Euro (previous year -0.6)

The SoftM Software und Beratung AG (ISIN: DE0007249104), Munich, reached revenues of 16.6 million Euro (previous year 19.7) in the traditionally weak first three months of business year 2005.

Total Group revenues for the first quarter were distributed accordingly in the three business units: Standard Software booked revenues of 3.5 million Euro (previous year 3.2) exceeding the revenues of last year by 0.5 million Euro. Consulting showed revenues of 5.4 million Euro (previous year 6.1). The System Integration unit was on the decline compared to the previous year with revenues of 7.7 million Euro (previous year 10.4). The reasons for the decline of revenues in this business unit compared to the first quarter of last year were as follows: The traditionally weak first quarter was, on the one hand, even weaker in this year. Additionally, revenues of this business unit were exceptionally high due to a major order in the first quarter of last year.  

Earnings before taxes, interest, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) amounted to 0.1 million (previous year 1.0). Earnings from normal business activities (EBT) were -0.9 million Euro (previous year -0.5) in the first quarter. Net profit of -0.6 million Euro in the first quarter 2005 (previous year -0.6) levelled off compared to the previous year. The result per share came to -0.12 Euro (previous year -0.11). Operating cash flow accounted for 11.9 million in the first quarter (previous year 11.6).

The investment climate in the small and medium-sized enterprises continues to be affected by the negative economic development in Germany. Though the sales projects are on increase, one can not, at present, assume that there will be a general and sustained break-up in the current IT investment logjam in small and medium-sized enterprises in the foreseeable future. In the annual planning of business year 2005, SoftM has already taken this situation into consideration.
